1. I just turned 18, re you suppose to go to your first appt when you turn 18 or wait until you become sexually active? I've heard both, which is correct

    I would say you should definitely make an appt. I started going soon after I started my period. You don't have to be sexually active to get cancer, or to have problems.

    depends on which doc or midwife you ask most of the midwives down here kinda go with the idea that exam is not needed unless you are about 25 if you are not sexually active and have no problems. on the other hand the docs here say you should be seen around 18 no matter what

    ask your family doctor. he/she should KNOW you best and therefore be best able to tell you when is appropriate.
