Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology

For more information, please call 304-691-1400

Proper medical and surgical management of gynecological problems in girls and teens can have profound consequences on sexual development and future fertility. Pediatric and adolescent gynecology is an emerging specialty that offers diagnostic and therapeutic services to treat girls from early adolescence to young adulthood for conditions affecting the female reproductive system. Gynecological issues that are common in girls and teens include:

  • Early or delayed puberty and/or concerns about development
  • Irregular menstrual bleeding or a lack of menstrual periods (amenorrhea)
  • Menstrual issues related to bleeding disorders or other diseases that may impact periods
  • Pelvic pain and/or pelvic masses
  • Discharge and infections
  • Other conditions affecting the pediatric and adolescent female reproductive system

Care is provided in an atmosphere that allows both patients and parents to feel comfortable talking about health issues.
