Gynecological and Menstrual Conditions

Adolescence is a time of many changes. As girls grow into young women and become physically and sexually mature, they need additional care from health care providers (adolescent medicine physicians/nurse practitioners and/or obstetricians/gynecologists/midwives) trained to address these issues.

Many gynecological and menstrual conditions affect adolescent females and require the clinical care of a physician or other health care provider. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
