When Should I Take My Daughter For Her First "Female" Exam?

I get this question from moms all the time.  The current recommendation is that for both sexually and non-sexually active teen, age 21 should be the first Pap.

However, I feel that if they are sexually active, they need to be screened for sexually transmitted diseases, and the first Pap should be done within 3 years of sexual activity.

But, if they have problems with periods or other gynecologic issues, then they should be seen at the time of problems.

Hope that clears it up.
