Adolescent care

Seeing a gynecologist for the first time is an important step for a young woman. It is the parent or caregiver's decision with help from the child's pediatrician to know when the time is right for a young girl's first gynecologist visit.

At Novant Health WomanCare, our providers regularly see pre-teen and teenage girls. Among the services we offer and concerns we address:

  • HPV counseling and vaccines.
  • Heavy, frequent or painful menstrual periods.
  • Irregular or infrequent menstrual periods.
  • Signs of early sexual maturation.
  • Signs of delayed sexual maturation.
  • Breast abnormalities, asymmetry or pain.
  • Chronic genital rashes or itching.
  • Vaginal discharge, drainage or odor.
  • Abdominal pain.
  • Ovarian cysts or pelvic masses.
  • Abdominal pain or pelvic endometriosis.
  • Injuries involving the reproductive organs.

In Clemmons, Novant Health WomanCare shares office space with Twin City Pediatrics. However, we see adolescent girls regardless of what pediatrician they have seen.
