What to expect during your Women’s Health visit:

You should have your first gynecologic exam by the time you’re 15 years old. You may want to take your mom to your first visit for moral support, and to help answer the doctor’s questions about your family health history and the vaccines you’ve had. It’s your personal choice whether you’d rather see a woman or man gynecologist. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable with and trust the person.

 

You don’t really need to do anything before a visit or exam. But you might want to write down when your periods started, when your last period was, and how often you have them. You could also write down questions so you don’t forget them. There really is no question that is too strange. “We’re pretty impossible to shock,” says Melisa Holmes, MD, who co-wrote Girlology Hang-Ups, Hook-Ups, and Holding Out: Stuff You Need to Know About Your Body, Sex, & Dating.

 

What to bring to your Women’s Health visit:

On the day of your visit, bring your insurance card and cardholder information, photo identification and payment for your co-pay. Make a list of medications and supplements you are currently taking (including doses and frequency) and bring it with you. Develop a list of questions and any symptoms that you have (including where they are, how long they last, and what aggravates or relieves them) and share it with your doctor or nurse practitioner.
