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.
