Pediatric Gynecology is a sensitive field and subject. The reason is it deals with children.
As adults, we still are aware of gynecological problems and have a basic idea about them!
But what about our children?
In this innocent childhood age, gynecological issues are completely new and strange for them!
They are unaware, and thus experiencing such issues is very discomforting for them!
In the age of fun and play, experiencing gynecological problems is indeed challenging!
In the age where children play 'doctor doctor' as a game, going to a doctor in real and that too for gynecological issues isn't easy, right?
Most children in Mumbai go to a doctor because of external wounds or common cold, cough, and fever! Going to a doctor for gynecological issues is rare in Mumbai, which makes the matter more discomforting for kids living in Mumbai.
Isn't saying "I have a fever" easier than saying "I have problems in ovaries or my vagina"?
Most of the children in Mumbai are unaware of what an ovary or vagina is, and getting issues related to them may make them so clueless and confused!
So, it is vital to support children during such times and be there for them!
As it is a very sensitive issue, it is essential to hold your little one's hand and not let them feel that they are alone!
It is crucial to understand them and their problem, but most importantly, to make them feel comfortable and remove their anxiety and discomfort!
Dr. Shweta Shah, an experienced gynecologist doctor in Malad, Mumbai, does just that! Through counseling sessions, she develops a rapport with kids, makes them feel comfortable, and removes their anxiety! Counseling sessions are an essential part of her treatment plan.
