My daughter is 14 (15 in September). What's the best age to take her to her first gynecological exam? She's not having any issues with her period. They're pretty normal and usually within 1-3 days of the day they're due. She gets mild cramps but nothing that Ibuprofen, a heating pad and hot bath doesn't help ease. She's not sexually active so I'm not sure if I should bring up birth control. Her only real issue is her MAJOR mood swings. She's crying and upset one minute, then happy go lucky the next. Is that a reason to ask about birth control? I know she's nervous and I want her first experience with a gynecologist to be as relaxing and easy as possible.
