Gynecological Care

Adolescent Care / Consultations

As girls grow into teens, it's important that they receive appropriate medical care. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recommends that young women have their first visit with an obstetrician-gynecologist (OB/GYN) between the ages of 13 and 15.

The idea of seeing a gynecologist or having a pelvic exam can make a girl feel nervous, embarrassed, or scared. By explaining why the visit is necessary, giving your daughter a sense of what to expect, and addressing any questions or fears she might have, you can help her feel more comfortable about taking this step.  Chances are, your daughter has associated visits to the doctor with health problems and she may not understand why she would go to the doctor when she feels perfectly fine.

Before the actual visit, the adolescent should be communicated and understand that this type of visit serves at least three main purposes:

  1. Information - She can get accurate information and confidential answers to any questions she may have concerning sex, sexuality, her changing body, and menstruation.
  2. Prevention - She can learn about pregnancy prevention, sexually transmitted diseases, and healthy lifestyles.
  3. Treatment - For girls who experience missed periods, pain, or other reproductive problems, the doctor can look into why the problems are occurring and offer treatment.

Also, you may want to reassure your daughter that even though there are a lot of different parts of the gynecological visit, the actual physical exam — and the part she might feel most uncomfortable about — is rarely ever necessary for girls under the age of 21.

Note that for most teens, the first visit will include an external examination of the genitals but not an internal examination of the reproductive organs, which is recommended beginning at age 21 for healthy women. However, if your daughter has abnormal vaginal bleeding, painful periods, unusual vaginal secretions, or other problems that may be associated with her reproductive health, she may need a pelvic exam sooner.  We are happy to offer this service to our adolescent patients.
