    The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that girls first see a gynecologist when they're between the ages of 13 and 15. Not all girls will need a pelvic exam during this initial visit, though. Many gynecologists will just do a regular health exam and talk to a girl about her development.

    Women have a special doctor who specialize in women's sexual health and the female genitalia.

    You should begin making appointments with a gyno once you start being sexually active, or are thinking about engaging in sexual relations (yes, that includes 'fingering' and oral sex.)

    You can obtain birth control through these doctors as well.

    If you have chosen to remain a virgin, you should start going in your early twenties anyway, just to ensure that you are healthy down there and to protect yourself from cervical cancer.

    Once you start going, you should continue to make appointments yearly or if you believe you may have contracted a sexually transmitted disease or infection or if you have any concerns 'down there' such as burning or what not.

    you mean your VAGINA? 16 to 18 would be a good time to start going, 16 years old is recommended. i started going when i was 17 because i wanted to be put on birth control. but anytime between those ages would be a perfect time to go, if you can't choose, your doctor will let you know.

    its called a pap smere and you get it done every year and if ur having sex with randoms then you should go maybe every two years or so and they will give you a pap smere and you will also pee in a cup for like clamida and shizz but the pap smere they put this thing in ur va gay gay and get some shizz and test it in the lab for like gonneria and shizz so go every year and get on birth control as well and use condoms so you dont worry that much about getting check but go every year k cus these days there's to much shizz floating around like espeically clamida and you can also get shizz if ur skin is touching down there even with a condom so before you have intercourse uhh make sure the guy is worth it and learn about his past from budds or something
