Dr. Sara Talken, a board-certified OB/GYN with Specialists in Women’s Care – a part of HCA Midwest Health, shares advice on how to prepare your daughter for her first well-woman exam.
For you and I, a well-woman visit is likely a routine event we check off our to-do list every year. But visiting the gynecologist for the first time can be stressful, particularly as a teen.
The mere thought of going to a gynecologist may fill your daughter with embarrassment or anxiety. As an OB/GYN, I want to help calm both your nerves as you approach either talking about or making that first OB/GYN appointment together. We are just as invested in making your teen feel comfortable as you are.
