Pediatrics – Menstrual Disorders Clinic
The Menstrual Disorders Clinic (MDC), located in the Adolescent Center of Boston Medical Center, diagnoses and treats a variety of menstrual disorders. Girls and young women, from ages 10-21, experiencing heavy menstrual periods, painful periods or who are missing periods or failing to menstruate will find expert care at the MDC, which is under the direction of Julia Potter, MD.
The MDC is an innovative clinic that offers expertise in both adolescent medicine and pediatric hematology to diagnose and treat a variety of disorders. Patients are screened jointly for endocrine or gynecological issues as well as underlying blood and clotting disorders. Laboratory work-ups, evaluation and treatment are performed in coordination with both specialties at one visit—improving the timeliness of care.
Our clinic can offer reassurance and answers. We provide solutions to easily manage a disorder so girls can return to their normal and active lifestyles.
