Gynecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus, and ovaries) and the breasts. Obstetrics is the field of study concentrated on pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. As a medical specialty, obstetrics is combined with gynecology under the discipline known as obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) which is a surgical field. Obstetrics and Gynaecology is the medical specialty that encompasses the two subspecialties of obstetrics (covering pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period) and gynecology (covering the health of the female reproductive systems – vagina, uterus, and ovaries). For all OB-GYN related problems, schedule a visit with us.

Treatments Available For

Normal Labour

Labour is the first stage of the process of childbirth followed by the delivery of the baby (ending of a pregnancy by one or more babies leaving a woman’s uterus by a vaginal passage) taking place. The most prominent sign of labour is strong repetitive uterine contractions. The distress levels reported by labouring women vary widely. They appear to be influenced by fear and anxiety levels, experience with prior childbirth, cultural ideas of childbirth and pain, mobility during labour, and the support received during labour. The onset of labour can be defined with various factors that include regular uterine contractions at least every six minutes with evidence of change in cervical dilation or cervical effacement between consecutive digital examinations, regular contractions occurring less than 10 min apart and progressive cervical dilation or cervical effacement, and at least 3 painful regular uterine contractions during a 10-minute period, each lasting more than 45 seconds.

Amenorrhea

Amenorrhea is the absence of a menstrual period in a woman of reproductive age. Physiological states of amenorrhoea are seen, most commonly, during pregnancy and lactation. Outside the reproductive years, menses are absent during childhood and after menopause. Amenorrhoea is a symptom with many potential causes. Primary amenorrhoea is defined as an absence of secondary sexual characteristics by age 14 with no menarche or normal secondary sexual characteristics but no menarche by 16 years of age. It may be caused by developmental problems, such as the congenital absence of the uterus, failure of the ovary to receive or maintain egg cells or delay in pubertal development. Secondary amenorrhoea, on the other hand, is often caused by hormonal disturbances from the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, from premature menopause or intrauterine scar formation. It is defined as the absence of menses for three months in a woman with previously normal menstruation, or nine months for women with a history of oligomenorrhoea.

Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids, also known as uterine leiomyomas or fibroids, are benign smooth muscle tumors of the uterus. The exact cause of uterine fibroids is unclear, but fibroids tend to run in families and appear to be partly determined by hormone levels. Most women have no symptoms while others may have painful or heavy periods. If the fibroid is large enough, it may push on the bladder causing a frequent need to urinate. It may also cause pain during sex or lower back pain. Women can either have one uterine fibroid or many. In rare cases, fibroids may make it difficult for women to conceive. The diagnosis for fibroids can be performed by pelvic examination or medical imaging. For complete obstetric or neo-natal care, schedule a visit with us.

Menorrhagia

Menorrhagia is the medical term for menstrual periods with abnormally heavy or prolonged bleeding. Although heavy menstrual bleeding is a common concern, most women don’t experience blood loss severe enough to be defined as menorrhagia. With menorrhagia and the abnormally heavy bleeding and cramping it causes, it becomes difficult to maintain everyday activities. Menorrhagia may be caused due to many factors that include: hormone imbalance, dysfunction of the ovaries, uterine fibroids, polyps, adenomyosis, intrauterine device (IUD), pregnancy complications, cancer, inherited bleeding disorders, medications or other underlying medical conditions.

caesarean Section

Cesarean section, also known as C-section, or Caesarean delivery, is the use of surgical processes to deliver the baby. A Caesarean section is often necessary when a vaginal delivery would put the baby or mother at risk which may include obstructed labour, twin pregnancy, high blood pressure in the mother, breech birth, or problems with the placenta or umbilical cord. Cesarean delivery may be performed based upon the shape of the mother’s pelvis or history of a previous C-section. A trial of vaginal birth after C-section may be possible. Cesarean section is recommended to be performed only when medically necessary. For complete obstetric or neo-natal care, schedule a visit with us.

White Discharge

Vaginal discharge is a healthy part of vaginal health. The type of vaginal discharge you may experience changes during your menstrual cycle, but in almost all cases, it’s a sign that everything is working well. However, from time to time, white discharge may be a sign of an underlying problem. If the white discharge changes in consistency or colour, then it may be a cause of concern and may be caused due to a bacterial or yeast infection. These symptoms may also include itching on the vulva or vagina, swelling or redness around the vulva, a burning sensation or pain during urination and pain during intercourse.

Difficulty in Conceiving/Infertility

Infertility happens when a couple cannot conceive after having regular unprotected sex. It may be that one partner cannot contribute to conception, or that a woman is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. Infertility can have many causes including low sperm count in men, low sperm motility or abnormal sperm among men and smoking, unhealthy diet and drinking habits, obesity, ovulation disorders and sexually transmitted diseases among women. Infertility or difficulty in conceiving can be treated in some cases and will depend on many factors, including the age of the person who wishes to conceive, how long infertility has lasted, personal preferences, and their general state of health.
