Growing up in the military, Carrie Gordon moved all over the country but returned to Utah when she started high school. She attended the University of Utah where she met her husband. After living in California for more than 18 years, they decided to move back to Utah to be closer to most of their family and many old friends.
Dr. Gordon was voted as “Best Doctor” and “Best Medical Practice” three years in a row by Style Magazine. She is highly trained in minimally invasive gynecological surgery (including the DaVinci® robotic surgery) to treat such problems as fibroids, pelvic pain, and abnormal bleeding. She’s a compassionate, energetic physician with special interests in sexual dysfunction, infertility, hormone imbalances, and adolescent gynecology.
Dr. Gordon has been married to her husband Chris for more than 20 years and is a mother of three awesome children. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, riding her Peloton®, and spending time with her family.
Hormonal changes happen to all women at some stage in her life. Whether it be preparing for pregnancy or moving into menopause, our hormones are orchestrating each transition.
There’s varying information out there about when girls should visit the gynecologist for the first time. Is it when she starts her first period? Is it when she becomes sexually active? What about pap smears and pelvic exams? Some mothers dreaded their own first visit and worry their daughter will have a traumatic experience. Adolescent gynecology is one of Dr. Carrie Gordon’s favorite clinical interests. Today she’s answering the questions that young ladies and their parents have.
