Adolescent Gynecology Q & A

"I believe that it is the duty of the practitioner to make the patient feel comfortable and safe enough to express her concerns. I am very excited to bring that philosophy to HER Wellness Health Center.”

When should your daughter have her first adolescent gynecology exam?

Generally, Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano recommends adolescents start seeing the gynecologist between the ages of 13-15 years old. Early prevention and education promote the optimal results in terms of your sexual and reproductive health. 

Your daughter may want to see Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano sooner than that if she has any of these symptoms:

  • Irregular periods
  • Painful menstrual cramping
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Burning  

What questions will a gynecologist ask your daughter during her first adolescent gynecology appointment?

Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano wants to get to know your daughter during her first appointment. She wants her to feel comfortable enough to discuss any issues she’s having with her menstrual cycle or sexual health.

We provide an engaging, family-oriented atmosphere that encourages trust and peace of mind. Our philosophy of care reflects the primacy of the patient’s needs, with an emphasis on restorative health outcomes. We respect the uniqueness of each patient, with a special appreciation of the interconnected factors and circumstances that can affect each woman’s reproductive and sexual health. 

Do you need a pelvic exam during your first adolescent gynecology appointment?

Typically, during an adolescent gynecology appointment she won’t have a pelvic examination at this age because her first one is usually given when she turns 21 or if she has any irregularities starting puberty or has any vaginal symptoms.

Schedule an adolescent gynecology exam by calling or booking online to detect issues early and discuss your sexual and reproductive health with Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano.
