Thanks for your query on health care magic.

First Gynecological examination is very important in terms of:
1. She will be given accurate information and confidential answers to any questions she may be having concerning sex, her changing body, and menstruation.
2. She can learn about pregnancy prevention, sexually transmitted diseases, and healthy lifestyles.
3. Doctor will take detail history including medical.
4. Your daughter's vital signs, including weight and blood pressure will be measured.
5. The doctor will examine her neck, breasts, heart, lungs, and abdomen.
6. Pelvic examination will not be performed as she does not have any symptoms.
7. Need for certain vaccines like HPV, Rubella will be discussed.

Encourage your daughter to ask as many questions as possible.
Wish her good health.
