Why is Adolescent Gynecology Important?
Adolescent gynecology can address many different issues that teens can experience such as abnormal bleeding, painful periods, delayed puberty, vaginal infections, ovarian cysts, PCOS, hormonal imbalances, pelvic pain, endometriosis, painful sex, sexual dysfunction, and congenital anomalies. Additionally, our expert team can have important discussions about topics like birth control, managing periods, safe sexual practices, peer pressure, body image, romantic relationships, alcohol or drugs, and even sexual assault. These things are never more important to talk about than when you’re a teenager, so it’s vital for your teen to partner with a gynecologist who can provide care and counseling for many years to come.
Many concerns can develop as early as in your teens that can feel scary and overwhelming, especially regarding feminine and sexual health. Unfortunately, young girls may hesitate to share their experiences for many different reasons until it’s almost unbearable. On the other hand, some young women don’t experience any abnormal symptoms and continue to delay their first visit with a gynecologist until they are much older. Ultimately, this can be a disadvantage.
