During puberty, a young woman goes through many physical changes that can be alarming and disorienting. While mothers are often a good resource about what to expect when a teen begins to menstruate, sometimes complications can arise that the average mother does not have the knowledge to handle. The female staff of doctors at Centennial OBGYN understands this dilemma and can provide expert education to the proper health practices needed for a woman to develop normally. In addition, sexual activity is a topic that many parents do not feel comfortable talking to their children about. The doctors at Centennial OBGYN are able to offer this education and make recommendations to when an adolescent should begin pap smears, STI tests, and monitor for pelvic inflammatory disease.
When a young woman visits her doctor at Centennial OBGYN, similar baseline measurements are taken to ensure that the woman is developing normally. Weight, blood pressure, and pelvic exams are common for all wellness visits. Starting at the age of 21 or if an adolescent is sexually active, pap smears may also be indicated. If an adolescent is uncomfortable, a parent, family member, or even a friend can accompany them into the exam room for emotional support. The female staff at Centennial OBGYN is highly capable of providing a safe and nurturing environment for those who are uneasy or uncomfortable during this part of their physical wellness.
It can be quite intimidating for a young adolescent to enter an exam room for the first time. The female doctors at Centennial OBGYN are aware of this and want to provide the most inviting and safe environment possible for patients to feel at ease. Any questions asked by adolescents will be answered in a respectful and educational way. Patients can ask questions about sexual health concerns, hormonal questions, emotional difficulties, sexual activity, STI’s and even speak about events that they do not feel comfortable talking about to their parents.
