In the field of women’s health care, adolescent and teenage care involves providing the women’s care services that teenage girls need. In addition to providing the medical services that adolescent females need, health care providers who offer adolescent and teenage care also focus on education, including discussion about the changes that the teenage body undergoes and the birth control options available.
A pelvic exam is not usually needed until age 21. However, if you are sexually active or have abnormal or severely painful periods, a pelvic exam may be necessary. A pelvic exam is a diagnostic tool that can help your doctor evaluate why you have abnormal periods or extreme pain.
As young women, it is important that you understand the role of sex in relationships and pregnancy. Discussing sex with your doctor is an excellent way of dispelling myths and rumors about sex, and can help you have a safer and more fulfilling experience. It is also an excellent time for you to ask questions to someone who is not your mother. The goal of the providers is not to encourage you to have sex, but provide information so that if you do become sexually active, you can make more informed decisions about when and how as well as information on how to prevent pregnancy or STDs.
When choosing a provider to see for women’s care services, teenage girls and their parents should first look for someone who is licensed and certified. Licensure lets a health care provider legally practice medicine, while certification shows that they’ve demonstrated a high level of expertise in their field. It is also important to find a provider that you are comfortable talking to about your body and your health concerns.
