The IASO Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology Department manages gynecologic problems that may develop from infancy to adolescence and the onset of reproductive age.

With a deep sense compassion for the tender age and fragile emotions of patients, we apply the most modern methods in terms of approach, diagnosis and treatment.

During infancy, a girl may develop certain rare anatomic variations of the external genitalia, which may cause concern to parents. In early childhood, the most common pediatric gynecologic problem is vulvovaginitis. Later on, it is precocious puberty and its variations.

A definite milestone in the life of an adolescent woman is the start of menstruation. Menarche delay, as well as uterine bleeding in adolescence are the most common causes for referral to the Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology Department. During adolescence, other frequent problems are associated with extremely rare congenital disorders (malformations) of the internal genitalia. These issues require comprehensive investigation as well as experience in diagnosis and treatment, so they may be managed as best possible.

Other common gynecologic problems in adolescence are menstrual disorders. Absence of menstruation (amenorrhea) or infrequent menstruation (oligomenorrhea), paired with hirsutism or other metabolic issues, such as insulin resistance, may point to the common polycystic ovary syndrome. The dedicated IASO Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology Department does not approach a problem one-dimensionally, but takes into accounts the views of the adolescent and the concerns of her parents/guardians. Nutritional disorders, exhaustive workouts and severe stress are often the cause of absent menstruation in adolescence and a host of various specialists are required to address it. The IASO Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology Department has the all the right associates. However, amenorrhea may be due to many other reasons, which can be clarified and successfully addressed at this dedicated Department.

Detection of human papillomavirus/condylomas in adolescence is another stressful finding, which often leads to unnecessary overtreatments. The IASO Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology Department provides extensive counseling and guidance, focusing on keeping the young girl safe and calm. Choosing the most suitable birth-control method is an issue that can be discussed with the adolescent at the Department. She will be presented with the pros and cons of each method, and will be advised on the safest and most appropriate one for her.

A very common question of the adolescent and the parents/guardians who visit the Department is whether she will undergo a gynecologic exam. Usually the answer is that it is not necessary. But if it is, a discussion will take place beforehand and the exam will be performed only if the adolescent has been convinced of the necessity of the exam and feels safe.

The IASO Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology Department approaches the tender age of adolescence with sensitivity and the therapies are based on the most modern treatment models.
