that sounds like something the girls parents should absolutley talk to her about. even if to simply make sure she understands what she is saying/ talking about, and to make sure she gets the "sex talk" from them and not another child. I hope they were present or you let them know...

I'm more confused why a 12 year old is seeing a gyno. That is concerning with how young she is.

Yes confidential! But I would hope that the OP would think of a good way to maybe bring up a discussion about the patient talking to her parents about intercourse, or be open about talking to the 12yo herself if the patient is comfortable. If it's down to procedures other than well visits, a large portion of the US requires consent from a guardian or have a parent present during the decision if under 17 years old.

could be person issues, or maybe has a cyst, she could have also been sexually abused/assaulted and now has to be checked, I know st 17 once I was sexually active I had to start going for pap smears and being tested for any disease (I was with the same person for almost 8 years) anyways there could be lots of reasons why shes seeing a gyno but I HOPE not for any bad reasons.

Yeah so this "new generation" crap is bullshit. I feel like ya should have asked yourself if this kids behavior was odd, and informed whatever medical knowledge you're legally allowed to inform and maybe talk with the parents to see if they're teaching the kid about her body or to see if they might be the source of this behavior. New generations just learn from the older ones.
