How old were you the first time you saw a Gyno?

I was 22. I know now that most women start going much earlier, but I didn't know better back then, so I started going when I got pregnant...

What about you?
If you have a DD, when do you plan to start taking her?

  • I was 12 and I think anywhere between 8-10 would be a good age to start going to see one.

  • I was 18. If i had a DD I would take her when she began to be sexually active or hopefully right before then.

  • I was 15 when my mom took me for my first gyno appt. If my daughter is physically active then she will go to her first gyno appt when she is 15 or whenever she becomes sexually active, if not then I will take her when she turns 21.

  • I think I was around 16. I think around the age of starting their period or maybe a year or two later. So they can get questions answered...and open up dialog for "girls" to talk about...sex, boys, periods, babies...etc with the Dr.

    I think 8-10 is pushing it..unless they are having problems.

  • I think I was 14. Maybe 15. I dunno what age I'll take my daughter.... I'll leave it up to the pediatrician probably

  • 15, I told my mom I was not sexually active and she did not believe me, so off the the gyno we went. (it was good she did not believe me, I was not at at the time, but was a couple years later) I am glad we went, because how different my life could have been.
