Adolescents experience many challenges in their sexual and reproductive lives, therefore, appropriate and timely specialist advice and care can do much to alleviate problems and misconceptions, and enable young people to move forward with their lives in confidence. Not many doctors are familiar with the delicacy and sensitivity an adolescent girl needs to be treated with as she needs special attention and a quiet, friendly environment. The Adolescent Health Committee of FOGSI aims to achieve this task by establishing Adolescent Friendly Health Centers. Our mission is to sensitize the youth of our country, through various projects we will be dealing in different aspects of health, i.e. physical, mental, social, spiritual, reproductive and sexual health and well-being, throughout their lives. We aim to “help young people form a strong moral identity in their early adolescent years and empower them to contribute to the well-being of their communities…” Disseminating knowledge and helping our adolescents to be empowered has been the goal of the Adolescent Health Committee, FOGSI and one such endeavor would hopefully reach to our colleagues through this book. We have selected different topics related to ASRH for the interest of our readers who will invariably face the dilemma of counseling the young adolescents and relieving them of the stress related with their normal pubertal changes. The preventive health section covers the social aspect of health as not many doctors will be well-versed in treating difficult adolescents, peer pressure and introducing life skills to them. Teenage pregnancy has its own complications and knowledge about contraception is lacking amongst the adolescents which is a major cause of concern globally with complications of unsafe abortion. Premarital counseling, vaccines and knowledge about STDs are important aspects of reproductive sexual health. Menarche at early age and ovarian tumors are cause of concern not only to the adolescents but to their mothers as well, hence a special section will deal with this area. To update our knowledge and learn about laparoscopic and robotic surgery will be a delight for our readers as these are upcoming recent trends in adolescent gynecology.
