Adolescent Gynecology Q & A

What is adolescent gynecology?

Adolescent gynecology is a way for your daughter to build a relationship with her gynecologist from an early age. These exams involve providing counseling and performing screenings that are age-appropriate for her unique needs. 

Adolescent gynecology services at Contemporary Women's Care can include:

  • Learning to manage menstrual cramps
  • Counseling about emotional changes and anxiety
  • Education about puberty and physical development
  • Evaluation of personal and family medical history
  • Discussions about birth control and preventing unwanted pregnancy
  • Counseling about sexual health and STDs

Your daughter should know that her dedicated gynecologist is a trusted provider that she can go to if she has any questions or concerns.   

When should my daughter see a gynecologist?

The caring providers at Contemporary Women's Care generally recommend scheduling your daughter’s first gynecologic exam between the ages of 13-15. While your daughter generally needs annual gynecologic visits, there are times when she may need additional care. 

You should schedule an adolescent gynecology exam if your daughter:

  • Has menstrual problems, such as heavy bleeding
  • Experiences severe menstrual cramps
  • Becomes sexually active

You may also want to schedule an adolescent gynecology exam at Contemporary Women's Care if your daughter has irregular periods or misses her period often. 

What happens during an adolescent gynecology exam?

Adolescent gynecology exams at Contemporary Women's Care are tailored to your daughter and include treatments and screenings that are appropriate for her needs at the time. Most teen gynecologic exams include:

  • Height and weight evaluation
  • External genital exam
  • Blood pressure check
  • Vaccination updates
  • Overall physical exam 

Generally, teen girls don’t need pelvic exams until they’re older, become sexually active, or experience symptoms of an STD. Your daughter likely won’t need her first Pap smear until she’s 21 years old. 

While your daughter can certainly have one-on-one time wither her gynecologist at Contemporary Women's Care, she can also request for you to be in the room if it makes her feel more comfortable.
