They might ask questions about your periods, if you have any pain/lumps/discharge around your vulva. If you've had any kind of sexual contact with other people- and if you do, whether you use protection.
Your mum absolutely doesnt need to know the answers. She doesnt have to be there unless you want her there for support.
Also remember that this is a great opportunity for you to ask the gynae any questions you have about your health/ birth control/ whatever.
