Adolescent Gynecology

Adolescent Gynecology in New Jersey

Adolescent Gynecology Essex County

The earlier a young lady visits a gynecologist, the more beneficial it is for her health. This is especially true for adolescents who are sexually active, no matter their age.
General wellness consultations are the beginning of a patient/doctor relationship for young ladies and their gynecologists. This may be the same doctor that guides you through various stages of the female reproductive journey from your first menstrual cycle, all the way down to the menopausal period and all the milestones in between, like having a baby!
Our highly trained doctors specialize in being sensitive with our adolescent patients to build trust. Your doctor will walk you through each part of your adolescent exam which normally includes a consultation, a medical assessment and a minimally invasive exam. If you’re not sexually active, most times a pelvic exam will not be required just yet.

Contraception or Sexual Care in West Orange

Contraception is the term that refers to pregnancy prevention. Some contraceptives also provide protection from sexually transmitted diseases. Even if you are not sexually active, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about contraceptive options so that once you do decide to become sexually active, you are fully educated and completely informed about engaging in protected sex.

Adolecent Development(Menstrual Development)

The menstrual development period of a young lady’s life is a time for a lot of changes. Before you even get your first period, you will see different parts of your body changing such your breasts getting larger and hair growing in various areas of the body. Don’t be nervous to talk to your doctor about any concerns you may have regarding these changes. Although they can be embarrassing to talk about, they are a natural part of puberty that you doctor will be happy to educate you on and provide information on the proper hygiene.
There are certain problems that are normal for adolescent girls to experience when they begin menstruation, such as pain or excessive bleeding. It is still important to communicate these and other symptoms with your doctor so that the proper exams can be performed to rule out any serious problems.
At Women’s First Health Center, we are committed to providing young ladies with a comfortable atmosphere and welcoming environment where they can receive optimal standards of care. Prepare yourself by learning about exactly what you can expect at your first gynecology visit.
For your convenience, we offer downloadable forms that we encourage you to print and fill out at home to bring in with you for your first visit.
