Academy award-winner Jane Fonda explains when mothers should take their daughters to the gynecologist/OBGYN.

Jane Fonda:
I think the way it happened to me is the right way. I had a very smart stepmother and the day that I got my period she said, “You are now a mature, physically mature woman and could get pregnant. I don’t want you to be sexually active,” and she explained why, but she said, “You need to go and see an OBGYN now and what goes on between you is confidential. So you can share any of your concerns with him.” He was a very famous one in fact, and so that’s the time to do it.

Use the menstruation to introduce the idea of seeing an OBGYN and then ask your daughter, “Would you prefer a man or a woman?” I went to a man and he was great, but I would never go to a male OBGYN now because I feel that women OBGYNs have a better understanding of what women are going through.
