We also recommend the HPV shot. This vaccination prevents against HPV, which 50% of women suffer with. The shot prevents HPV, which can lead to serious health concerns including cervical cancer. We strongly encourage girls and boys to get the vaccine when they are young, but if they haven’t gotten it by their teenage years we can administer it right from our office in three sessions.
It is important to talk to your teenage daughter about her sexual health, no matter how uncomfortable it may make you feel. By establishing an open dialogue, you can ensure she receives the proper healthcare and guidance throughout her teenage years.
If you have a teenage daughter, call our West Orange, NJ office at 1 (973) 669-5711 to schedule her gynecological exam. You can also contact us online if you would like additional information. We look forward to seeing you in our office, for the most compassionate and expert women’s healthcare in New Jersey.
