GYNAECOLOGICAL CARE FOR GIRLS AND ADOLESCENTS

The foundations for good health are laid in childhood, when habits that contribute to well-being throughout life are established. Thus, in the field of gynaecology, hygiene habits can be instilled at the family level. Childhood is not usually a time to go to the gynaecologist unless there are problems. It is recommended to start visiting a gynaecologist from the age of 14. Many times, the first visit simply consists of a close and empathetic conversation. This allows a relationship to be established with the doctor that makes a girl or woman feel more comfortable asking questions about menstruation, sexuality, etc., creating a link in case symptoms occur in the future. It also provides the opportunity to be able to guide her towards long-term general wellbeing, through advice on important health and lifestyle issues.

GYNAECOLOGICAL CARE IN ADULTHOOD

Gynaecologists are physicians who specialise in women's health, with a focus on the female reproductive system. An obstetrician is a gynaecologist who specialises in pregnancy and childbirth. An annual visit is recommended for a check-up to ensure your reproductive health and, at any time, if symptoms appear that concern you.
