Abstract
The interest in sexuality of adolescents in medical practice is often mainly focussed on the onset of sexual intercourse and on the emergence of contraceptive needs, though the beginning of adolescence takes place much earlier with the first signs of puberty followed by the menarche. At the issue of this profound metamorphosis the adolescent needs to adapt herself to a modified, sexual body. Adolescence is also a time of identity development and of changes in relationships, which are influenced by gender role in family and perception related to gender during childhood. This article shows epidemiological data to consider and the main issues of gynaecologic consultation with the adolescent. The different stages of development depend on biological and environmental factors which either favour resilience or weaken the individual due to a lack of affection or to abusive relationships. Medical consultation for a gynaecological problem, questions on puberty and development or on contraception give medical professionals and especially gynaecologists a chance to address sexual issues naturally, to anticipate questions as well as contraceptive needs. The consultation with the adolescent includes also the screening for behaviour related to a lack of information or a personal or relational difficulty.
