What happens during adolescent gynecology visits?

During a visit to Burlington OBGYN Associates Inc., a friendly specialist weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI), evaluates your growth, and checks your vital signs.

They complete a physical exam, including a pelvic exam and Pap test if needed. During a Pap smear, your specialist inserts a special tool through the vagina to obtain a sample of cervical cells. They send the sample to a lab to screen for signs of cervical cancer.

You might need urine testing, blood tests, STD testing, a hysteroscopy, an ultrasound, or other imaging procedures to help your specialist properly treat a condition. 

Your treatment plan may include vaccinations, nutrition education, healthy weight management, or medications. Burlington OBGYN Associates Inc. also offers birth control and STD treatments. They tailor each treatment to your specific needs.

When should I schedule adolescent gynecology appointments?

Schedule adolescent gynecology appointments yearly, or more often if your provider suggests it based on risk factors, unusual symptoms, questions, or concerns you may have. Don’t hesitate to call the office any time you’re unsure if your teenager needs a gynecology evaluation.
