This is what I recommend to my mothers:

-I recommend at 16 that she be introduced to a Gyn for a pre-school physical or in the summer.
-I discuss female issues with the girl as an icebreaker, then do a general physical and breast exam and teach BSE to her.
-I do not do a pelvic exam unless there are Gyn issues, and even then, many times, I bring her back rather than spring that upon her at an initial visit and she has had some time to digest some of the things we have talked about.
-By the following summer and pre-college, she is much more mature and ready to make her own decisions and thus another discussion about birth control issues and to give her an avenue to call from college should she gave any issues.
-I give the girl the option if she desires her mother to be present for any of the discussions or examinations.
-I also assure her that our conversations are totally common confidential in the presence of her mother
