Adolescence is a time of profound changes in a young woman’s life. For many teens, the first visit to a gynecologist or nurse midwife can be a source of anxiety. Our doctors and nurse midwives are sensitive to the needs of teens and do our best to make a young woman’s first gynecological visit as comfortable and non-threatening as possible.
Even though guidelines no longer require women under the age of 21 to have pap smear screening, scheduling a gynecologist appointment is important for overall wellness and preventive medicine. The health decisions a young woman makes now can affect the rest of her life. A visit to Delaware Valley OB/GYN will not only provide a young woman with more knowledge about her body but will also help her become empowered about your reproductive health.
A well-woman visit at Delaware Valley OB/GYN can provide:
- Information. She’ll get accurate information and confidential answers to questions about sex, sexuality, her changing body and her periods.
- Prevention. She can learn about pregnancy prevention, STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) and healthy lifestyles.
- Treatment. The doctor can diagnose and treat any problems, such as missed periods and pelvic or stomach pain.
