Gynecology for teenagers

The first consultation with a gynecologist touches on intimate issues that may seem embarrassing to young patients. It involves a lot of stress, so it is important that the doctor and a close companion work together to help overcome stress and shame.Often, the lack of specific knowledge and opinions overheard cause fear and reluctance, which turns out to be completely unfounded after the visit.

During the child’s visit, the patient is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who must consent to the examination, which does not mean that he or she must be present during the examination itself. The girl has the right to request a test without the presence of her parent/guardian.
