Paediatric and Adolescent

What are some common reasons for children to see a gynaecologist?

If your daughter has any gynaecological disorders, it is important to seek professional care immediately. Chronic pain, abnormal bleeding, and contraceptive needs also qualify as reasons for seeking advise from a paediatric gynaecologist. One of the most common reasons adolescents see a gynaecologist is for help managing her periods. A girl’s menstrual cycle should not be so painful or heavy that it interferes with school or her extracurricular activities.

Why is pediatric gynaecology important? 

As young women develop, it’s important to have a trusted gynaecologist to care for their changing needs. Paediatric and adolescent gynaecology focuses on a unique subset of gynecologic disorders among younger females. In the pediatric patient, gynaecologic issues often present as vulvar and vaginal problems, while in the adolescent patient, complaints of abdominopelvic pain and abnormal menstrual bleeding commonly result in a gynaecologic evaluation
