Adoloscence Care



Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. Effective acne treatments are available, but acne can be persistent. PCOD PCOS is one of the most common causes of female infertility. This lifelong health condition continues far beyond the child-bearing years. Women with PCOS are often insulin resistant; their bodies can make insulin but can’t use it effectively, increasing their risk for type 2 diabetes. They also have higher levels of androgens (male hormones that females also have), which can stop eggs from being released (ovulation) and cause irregular periods, acne, thinning scalp hair, and excess hair growth on the face and body. Women with PCOS can develop serious health problems, especially if they are overweight: Stroke

Facial Hair

Hirsutism is where women have thick, dark hair on their face, neck, chest, tummy, lower back, buttocks or thighs. It might be caused by a medical condition that can be treated.

Irregular Periods

You have irregular periods if the length of your menstrual cycle (the gap between your periods starting) keeps changing. Your periods may come early or late. The average menstrual cycle lasts 28 days, although it’s normal for it to be a bit shorter or longer than this. After puberty, many women develop a regular cycle with a similar length of time between periods. But it’s not uncommon for it to vary by a few days each time. Common causes include:
  • Puberty – your periods might be irregular for the first year or two
  • The start of the menopause (usually between the ages of 45 and 55)
  • Early pregnancy – take a pregnancy test to rule this out
  • Some types of hormonal contraception – such as the contraceptive pill or intrauterine system (IUS)
  • Extreme weight loss or weight gain, excessive exercise or stress
  • Medical conditions – such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or a problem with your thyroid
