Adolescent Gynaecological Problems

As a young teenage girl, various gynaecological issues can arise. While these issues can be difficult to talk about, it’s important to see your doctor so you can get proper treatment. 

  • Menstrual Disorders: They are common in young women and range from irregular menstruation to severe pain during menstruation. The most common types of menstrual disorders are:
    • Dysmenorrhoea – Menstrual cramps that can interfere with daily life.
    • Amenorrhea – Absence of menses.
    • Menorrhagia – Heavy menstrual bleeding lasting more than 7 days.
    • Oligomenorrhea – Infrequent menstrual intervals greater than 35 days.
    • Polymenorrhea – Frequent menstrual cycles of less than 21 days.

Symptoms of irregular menstruation include abdominal pain, cramps, heavy bleeding, and irregular menstrual cycles. Risk factors include stress, improper diet, and hormonal imbalances.

  • Vaginal Infection: Vaginal infections are common in young women and can be caused by bacteria, yeast, or viruses. The most common types of vaginal infections are: 
    • Bacterial vaginosis – A bacterial infection that causes discharge and odor.
    • Yeast Infection – A fungal infection that causes itching and inflammation.
    • Trichomoniasis – A sexually transmitted disease that causes vaginal itching, odor, and discharge.

Symptoms of a vaginal infection include itching, burning, redness, and abnormal discharge. Risk factors include poor hygiene and multiple sex partners. 

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the reproductive system that can lead to infertility if left untreated. The most common causes of PID are sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
    Symptoms of PID include abdominal pain, fever, and unusual discharge. Risk factors include unprotected sex, multiple sexual partners, and a history of sexually transmitted infections.
  • Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a disease in which the tissue lining the uterus grows outside the uterus. This tissue can grow in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other organs in the abdomen. Endometriosis can cause pelvic pain and infertility.
    Symptoms of endometriosis include pelvic pain, menstrual pain, and infertility. Risk factors include a family history of endometriosis and abnormal uterine development.
