Obstetrics and Gynecology Services
Lifespan Physician Group

Adolescent Health

We are pleased to offer services to young girls and teenagers. We provide counseling about normal changes in puberty, problems with periods and sexual health. We offer the HPV vaccine (Gardasil) to all women ages nine through 26. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends a first visit with a gynecologist at 13 to 15 years old. Many girls come with a parent who can be present for a portion of the visit and often times a pelvic exam is not needed. 

Another common time to come in for a first visit is during the senior year of high school before young women begin college.

If you are an established patient, our doctors, midwives and nurse practitioners are happy to meet with your daughter(s) or young relatives. For additional information or to schedule an appointment contact us at one of our locations
