Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology

Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology

The Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology Unit offers specialist care to children and adolescents, supported by professionals from other areas and units at the hospital. We deal with changes to the menstrual cycle and also advise on contraceptive methods and treat patients with various disorders. 


The Unit works with Paediatric Endocrinology and Social Paediatrics, as well as other paediatric services such as Oncohaematology, Hepatology and Pneumology. 

It sees cases such as:

  • Changes to the menstrual cycle.
  • Changes in the development of adolescents that cause changes in the breastsand genitals, and accelerated growth, etc.
  • Hyperandrogenaemia: a disorder that has symptoms such as acne, hair loss, excessive body and facial hair (hirsutism), etc.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome: a disorder where the ovary produces more male hormones than normal.
  • Problems or pain in the vulva area, etc.

Apart from advising on adolescent contraception methods, the Unit gives individual treatments and follow-up tailored to each patient and, if needed, refers their case to other specialists at the hospital.

It also offers:

  • Contraceptive methods which are reversible in the long term: These contraceptive methods, such as hormone implants and intrauterine devices, act over a long period of time - 3, 5 or 10 years - and prevent pregnancy.
  • Müllerian anomaly test: These tests are carried out to detect malformations appearing in the genitalia. They are done in collaboration with the Hysteroscopy Unit at the hospital.
  • Treatment of patientswith disorders in the cervix, vagina and vulva, and referralto the Benign Gynaecology Unit.
