    The gynecologist can treat a woman or girl of any age. It is advisable to visit a gynecologist at the age of 13 to 15 years.

    Build a relationship with a woman and the gynecologist or girl so that she is more comfortable asking questions about sexuality, menstruation, etc., and provide a point of contact should any problems arise in the future

    It also gives the gynecologist a chance to guide the overall well-being of a woman in the long term through counseling on important health and lifestyle issues.

        I started seeing a gynecologist when I was 12, when I first started menstruating. I have also always insisted that my gynecologist (and my urologist and general practitioner) be a woman. My visits have always been annual, with a few exceptions. The years when I had my IUD inserted or reinserted, I would see her a second time a few weeks later, to have the strings trimmed. And last year, since I had a vaginoplasty, I saw her four times.
