This book, Recent Advances in Adolescent Health, aims to alleviate problems and misconceptions related with adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH). The author 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. 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.
