Dr. Weary's Specialties
First Gynecologist Visit: When to Go?
- Age or Sexual Activity: According to recent studies, the recommended time for a woman’s first gynecologic exam is in the early to mid-20s or when she becomes sexually active, whichever comes first.
- Adolescents and Puberty Issues: Exceptions exist for adolescents experiencing challenges with puberty or menstrual problems. It is common for young women to face irregular, heavy, or painful periods. Our experienced gynecologists can effectively address and treat these issues, so it’s advisable for patients to seek assistance earlier than the typical recommendations.
- Personalized Care: Our dedicated team is committed to providing personalized care, tailoring our approach to address individual needs and concerns. Schedule an appointment today to receive comprehensive gynecologic care at the right time for you.
