Gynecological Care The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that girls first see a gynecologist between the ages of 13 and 15. Most first visits at this age will not include a pelvic exam (According to ACOG guidelines, PAP smears should begin at age 21). The first exam will include a physical exam and discussions about medical history, menstruation and sexual activity. To learn more about why you should see a gynecologist, click here.
