Pediatric and adolescent gynecology 

Pediatric and adolescent gynecology helps girls and young women stay healthy from birth to age 21. Our specialized provider is focused on the unique healthcare needs of young patients and offers compassionate, age-appropriate care. Some of the most common conditions treated are irregular periods, vaginitis and ovarian cysts.

Gynecologic conditions we treat

We diagnose and treat a range of conditions in women of all ages, including:

  • Abnormal Pap smears, when irregular cells are detected in your cervix.
  • Abnormal periods, including irregular, painful and heavy menstrual cycles.
  • Breast abnormalities, such as breast lumps, cysts, pain and infections.
  • Endometriosis, a condition where the glands and tissue usually found inside the uterus are outside the uterus. Endometriosis symptoms include heavy periods and pain.
  • Menopause, the natural process when a woman stops having a period. Though it usually starts after age 40, some women experience early menopause.
  • Ovarian cysts or masses, which are usually benign (non-cancerous). But because some cysts in ovaries can be cancerous or rupture, it’s always important to have a medical evaluation.
  • Pelvic health concerns, including pain during sex, pelvic floor conditions and pelvic organ prolapse.
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a disorder associated with hormonal imbalances and possibly small ovarian cysts.
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a more severe form of PMS that disrupts your quality of life.
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), symptoms experienced before and during your period.
  • Sexual health concerns, including pain during sex (dyspareunia) and low sexual desire.
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STI), infections passed from person to person during sexual activities.
  • Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control.
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI), typically a bladder infection which may cause painful and more frequent urination.
  • Uterine fibroids, benign (non-cancerous) tumors that grow within the muscle tissue of the uterus.
  • Vaginal infections, infections typically caused by yeast or bacteria. Symptoms may include discharge, itching and irritation.
  • Vulvar skin conditions, which can cause itching and irritation.
