Adolescent clinic

 Do you know a child or teen who may benefit from seeing a gynaecologist?

For young ladies, visiting the gynaecologist can be a very frightening experience. Understanding their needs, our team of doctors and nurses take on an active approach to reach out, and provide effective solutions and sound advice to our young patients.

 

Reasons to seek gynaecologic care for young ladies include:

 

  • Menstrual periods that are very heavy or painful, causing decrease in normal activities or school absence.
  • Itching, persistent irritation or rashes in genital area
  • Concerns regarding anatomy or puberty
  • Contraception
  • Safe sex practices
  • Sexually transmitted disease testing
  • Abdnominal or pelvic pain that persists
  • Human Papillomavirus Vaccine (HPV)

Vaccination for Cervical cancer

Vaccination is recommended for all young women and your doctor will be able to help decide which vaccine is right for you. Ideally, the vaccine should be given before first sexual contact. This will activate a healthy young woman's immune system and protect her against HPV.
