Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologists


A Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologist is a subspecialist who undergoes further preparation after first completing training in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Why do you need to see them?

Pediatric Gynecology
Pediatricians may not be trained to address the unique gynecological issues that can affect children and are often not familiar with the different conditions that may signal a specific diagnosis. For this reason, children who experience these and other conditions should be seen by a trained pediatric gynecologist:

  • Congenital abnormalities of the genitalia or in the reproductive tract, including differences in sex development and vaginal agenesis (born without a vagina)  
  • Vaginal bleeding that occurs before puberty
  • Vaginal and other reproductive tract infections
  • Labial adhesions occur when the inner lips of the vagina stick together and partially or completely block the opening to the vagina and urethra. Labial adhesions can occur in young girls ages three months to six years.

Adolescent Gynecology
An adolescent gynecologist is specially trained in the anatomy and needs of adolescents and routinely treats the following conditions:

  • Menstrual conditions, including amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), menstrual suppression (medical elimination or suppression of menstruation)
  • Early or delayed puberty
  • Vaginal and other reproductive tract infections
  • Contraceptive and medical use of birth control
  • Endometriosis and pelvic pain
  • Ovarian cysts or masses
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Adolescent gender care including hormone therapy
  • Gynecological care and fertility preservation associated with complex medical conditions
  • Sexually transmitted disease and infection screenings

What do they do?

Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologists specialize in caring for children, adolescents, and young women with gynecologic concerns. These gynecologic concerns may range from ovarian cysts in the neonate to problems with puberty or difficulties with periods. Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologists are able to care for both medical and surgical problems affecting the reproductive organs in children, adolescents, and young adults.

Physician consultation is a good opportunity and you should be prepared for it.

  • Carry all necessary medical records for the discussion. It helps in better understanding your heart condition and avoids repetition of diagnostic tests.
  • Make sure you discuss your past medical history, surgical history, family history, and medications that you are taking.
  • Discuss about your lifestyle habits, dietary habits and also about your profession. Your lifestyle and nature of job may be associated with the risk for cardiac diseases.
