Gynaecology is the study of the female reproductive system, its functions, disorders and diseases. This can include complaints ranging from menstrual problems to uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and cervical polyps. Consultant Gynaecologists can also provide advice on contraception and early pregnancy.
Nearly all women will suffer from a gynaecological problem at some point in their life. It may not be life-threatening and may only affect them at certain times of the month, but it can still impact the quality of life and the ability to do everyday tasks.
The type of treatment you will receive will be tailored to you and depend on your symptoms, age and other lifestyle and health factors. If further diagnostic tests or treatment are required, these will be explained to you fully during your consultation.
If you are experiencing any of these common concerns, consider booking a private appointment with one of our gynaecologists:
- Heavy periods
- Bleeding between periods
- Intermittent or irregular periods
- Abdominal or pelvic pain during or between periods
- Itching or burning
- Irregular discharge
A subspecialty of Gynaecology is Urogynaecology which deals with conditions of the pelvic floor and bladder, including incontinence, pelvic floor issues and bladder problems.
We routinely conduct further investigations on patients experiencing the above, utilising a multitude of tests, some of which include, MRI, CT Scan, Ultrasound, Urinalysis, Urodynamics studies, and Internal examinations (colposcopy), all available at Ross Hall Hospital.
Whatever the severity of your condition, diagnosis and treatment will be tailored to you and conducted by our professional gynaecology consultants supported by the experienced multidisciplinary team at Ross Hall Hospital.
