Adolescents is a transitional period of enormous physical and psychological changes for young girls. Adolescent problems are increasing over the years and need special consideration by the health care providers.
Objective: The present study aims at finding and highlighting various gynaecological problems in adolescents as most of these largely remain unaddressed due to lack of sexual knowledge or the feeling of embarrassment to share such issues.
Method: A total of 707 adolescent girls presenting to Gynaecology OPD of GMC Jammu during March 2019- Feb 2020 with various gynaecological problems without any major co-morbidity were evaluated with detailed history and clinical examination after seeking their consent.
Result: Menstrual disorders (65.2%) including irregular menses, menorrhagia, oligomenorrhoea, hypomenorrhea and polymenorrhea followed by vaginal discharge (21.6%) were the most common gynaecological problems among the adolescents.
Conclusion: Irregular menses due to dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) and PCOS are the most common gynaecological problems in adolescents. Health awareness among adolescents is the need of the hour.
