First, explain that it’s normal to be a little anxious, but that the visit will be smooth and easy. Encourage your daughter to make a list of questions and concerns to discuss with their gynecologist. This can include anything related to female health, including birth control, menstrual cycle, sex, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Your daughter may be concerned about proper preparation for the exam, so explain that as long as they take a bath or shower and clean their genitals in the usual way, that’s plenty of prep.
Finally, be sure to remind your daughter that their gynecologist is a specialist who performs pelvic exams and discusses female health issues every single day, so there’s absolutely no reason to feel embarrassed.
