Adolescent and teenage care services focus on diagnosing and treating reproductive health issues that affect adolescent and teenage females.
The Fort Worth Obstetrics & Gynecology team also offers comprehensive management services to support young women’s ongoing reproductive and mental health.
Available adolescent and teenage care services include:
The team can address gynecologic issues in young women, such as ovarian cysts, irregular periods, endometriosis, and vaginal infections.
During the initial visit, the Fort Worth Obstetrics & Gynecology physicians spend time reviewing a teen’s personal and family medical history, any symptoms they’re experiencing, and their current health. Teens will also receive a pelvic exam, a manual evaluation of the vagina and inner reproductive organs.
Depending on your medical history and whether you’re sexually active, you might also need a Pap smear, a minimally invasive procedure to collect cells at the entrance of the cervix. A medical lab assesses the cell sample for changes that might increase risks for cancer.
As part of the consultation, the team can discuss options for birth control for sexually active teens. They also offer resources to help teens prevent STDs, including vaccinations to protect against human papillomavirus (HPV) infections.
The Fort Worth Obstetrics & Gynecology team specializes in creating a comfortable environment where teens and young women can ask questions about their changing bodies and sexual health.
Preventive wellness visits for adolescents and teenagers provide an opportunity for physicians to identify issues like endometriosis that can affect a teen’s long-term physical, reproductive, and sexual health. It’s vital to identify these issues in the earliest stages when treatment is typically most effective.
Early visits with the gynecology team allow the physicians to build a trusting relationship with teens, so they are more likely to continue scheduling routine gynecology exams. Teens also have access to reliable methods of birth control and STD prevention resources to keep them safe.
