For adolescents, the first gynecologic examination provides a golden opportunity to educate young patients about the breast and pelvic exam, to answer questions about development, and to provide medical reassurances and information about issues of health and sexuality. We provide abstinence counseling, as well as contraceptive counseling and pregnancy prevention strategies. Adolescents especially may benefit from counseling about the risks of sexual activity and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.
