As your daughter starts to menstruate and mature sexually, many gynecological issues can arise. The Gynecology Program at Boston Children's Hospital urges mothers talk with their daughters about the normal changes that should be occurring, so that any problems are spotted right away.
How Boston Children's Hospital approaches gynecological problems
The Gynecology Program at Children's is currently the busiest clinical program in pediatric and adolescent gynecology, and our staff has the expertise to detect and respond to any gynecological issue you or your daughter may be struggling with.
Although talking to your daughter about menstruation, puberty and safe sex is crucial, she may need to do her own research or have questions she doesn't feel comfortable asking anyone. The Center for Young Women's Health can be a great help to her, especially this guide: Gynecology and Reproductive Health.
