2 doctors agree

In brief: Depends on check-ups

A girl sees her Pediatrician yearly, who looks at the girl's breasts, vaginal/vulval area, and anus, to make sure the girl is developing normally.
As she goes through puberty, annual check-ups continue... but if she for whatever reason is NOT getting her breasts, vaginal/vulval area, and anus looked at, then she should ask her doctor to look. If still getting no exam, then see an Ob-Gyn doctor.

The current recommendation for the first gynecologic exam is age 18-21 years if she is not sexually active and if there are no menstrual problems.

Agree with above. In addition, pap smears are now recommended at 21.
