Adolescent & Teen Care

Many teenage girls have special needs and concerns about changes in their bodies. Dr. Lawton provides the kind of one-on-one care young women want in an atmosphere that allows them to feel comfortable talking about their health.

If you are under 21 years of age, you may not need a pelvic exam.

In addition to providing initial or routine gynecologic care, we provide care for adolescents with a variety of gynecologic problems, including:

  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Missed periods
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Delayed first period
  • Pelvic pain
  • Vaginal and pelvic infections
  • Uneven breast growth and breast lumps
  • Vaginal discharge
  • STD (sexually transmitted disease) counseling and treatment
  • Contraception management
