Adolescent gynaecology requires special attention for understanding the dynamics of the adolescent’s psychological and physiological circumstances. The first gynaecologic examination can be an important factor for establishing a long-term relationship. Creating a relaxing comfortable environment is essential for making the patient comfortable. As such, practitioners should be at ease discussing a variety of issues with adolescents, including eating disorders, substance abuse, house and school environment and dating violence. The practitioner should be familiar with the differential diagnosis, evaluation and management of diseases which are common in the adolescent period as amenorrhoea, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Thus, recognition and prompt treatment of both diseases are advocated to prevent future fertility implications in a population with their entire fertility potential ahead of them.
Understanding these basic concepts is critical for complete care in a very important and unique age group. This review discusses adolescent gynaecology.
