Adolescent Gynecology Q&A

What is adolescent gynecology?

Adolescence is the span of development between childhood and adulthood. Early adolescence covers ages 10-13, middle adolescence is ages 14-17, and late adolescence is 18-21. 


During these phases in a girl’s life, they go through many changes, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Navigating those unique changes can be challenging, both for kids and parents. 


As your adolescent gynecology specialist, Dr. Eden provides the comfort and reassurance that your child’s reproductive and sexual health concerns are addressed with care at every stage of their life. 

What are some issues that adolescent gynecology treats?


Girls can experience different gynecology issues during the course of their life, including: 


  • Abnormalities with their reproductive organs (uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix)
  • Early or delayed sexual development  
  • Abnormal or heavy bleeding 
  • Cramps and painful periods
  • Pelvic pain
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Vaginal infections


No matter what your child faces, Dr. Eden can help answer any gynecology questions you have and find the best treatment options to restore your child’s health and well-being.

How can I prepare for my child’s adolescent gynecology visit?


As girls move through adolescence and into adulthood, they begin to take control of their personal health and wellness. It’s important for parents and guardians to allow their child to interact with their women’s health specialist. 


Learning how to ask questions and express concerns about their reproductive or sexual health is important for girls and teaches them how to take better care of their health. Dr. Eden can also address topics like puberty, birth control, and family planning. 

If this is your child’s first visit to the practice, it’s a good idea to gather their personal and family health history prior to their appointment. After their physical exam and a discussion about your child’s health needs, Dr. Eden adds this information to their medical record, which becomes an important tool for managing their health over time. 


If you’re searching for a compassionate adolescent gynecology specialist to deliver top-quality care, reach out to the office of Elizabeth A. Eden, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. Call or schedule an appointment online today.
