Adolescent Gynaecology

For some girls, transitioning into puberty may be a challenging and an awkward time of their life. Besides this there are some anatomical conditions that only become obvious only after puberty or adolescent years. Dr Musa understands that young girls may find this phase of life difficult and can find consultations a bit hard.

Adolescent gynaecology is  an area in which specific knowledge and expertise is required to ensure that patients achieve the best outcome.

Gynaecological problems in adolescents are common, and although serious pathology is rare, distress can be significant.

Adolescent girls are under greater pressure than ever before,and symptoms like painful periods may have a significant impact on schooling and examination performance.

Careful and sympathetic assessment is crucial, and simple treatment remedies may be all that is required.

However, complex and rare medical conditions can also occur and must not be missed. Some congenital disorders present for the first time in adolescence. Early detection and appropriate treatment will ensure the best possible outcomes in terms of sexual function and potential fertility.
