Gynecology Services - Adolescence - Preventive Health Care
Providing preventive health counseling for adolescents can be challenging, however, our physicians offer a comfortable and confidential environment for discussion. We will address health related issues that are common and provide support, guidance, and appropriate treatment.
Today more than 85% of adolescents become sexually active during the teen years. Our physicians can visit with your teen to provide accurate information about sex, including condom use and other forms of contraception. If a teen is already sexually active, she can be screened for most sexually transmitted diseases.
Now there is something you can do to help protect your daughter - and her future. GARDASIL is the only vaccine that may help guard against diseases caused by HPV Types 16 and 18, which cause 70% of cervical cancer cases, and HPV Types 6 and 11, which cause 90% of genital warts cases. GARDASIL is for girls and young women ages 9 to 26. Like other vaccines your daughter has received, GARDASIL works to prevent illness. You'll be helping to protect her future from cervical cancer and genital warts before she is old enough to worry about them.
