Adolescent Gynecology

A young woman's first visit to the gynecologist can be a scary time. Not knowing what to expect during a physical examination may put the younger patient on edge, perhaps even discouraging her from seeking medical care.

UMMC Women's Care gynecologists know how to put patients of all ages at ease, offering compassion along with leading-edge care.

Pre-exam chats often are scheduled as a way to make the young patient feel more at ease, especially in regards to the gynecological exam and the need for open discussions with her gynecologist. Once that bond is established, the girl will be less apprehensive to get to the heart of what matters – any medical issues that might arise as her body goes through puberty and then on into female maturity.
