What’s involved in adolescent and teenage care?
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:
- Wellness visits
- Pelvic exams
- Pap smears
- Birth control
- STD testing and prevention
The team can address gynecologic issues in young women, such as ovarian cysts, irregular periods, endometriosis, and vaginal infections.
What happens during an adolescent and teenage care consultation?
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.
Depending on your medical history and whether you’re sexually active, you might also need a pelvic examination, a minimally invasive procedure to examine the vagina to address concerns or perform screening tests.
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.
What are the benefits of adolescent and teenage care services?
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 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.
