If you have any new or unexpected symptoms in and around your pelvis or abdomen, it can be sensible to get help from an expert in women’s health.

Gynaecology is the study of the female reproductive system. A doctor who specialises in this area of medicine is known as a Consultant Gynaecologist.

There are a variety of conditions that can affect the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries, including:

  • Endometriosis – a long-term (chronic) problem that causes pain in the pelvis. Although there is currently no cure, treatments to help manage the symptoms are available
  • Uterine fibroids – fibroids are non-cancerous tumours that grow within the uterus
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pelvic floor muscle dysfunction
  • Pelvic organ prolapse – caused when one or more of the organs in the pelvis moves from its normal position and pushes down on the vagina
  • Menopause – a reduction in the amount of oestrogen (one of the two female sex hormones), causing a variety of symptoms including hot flushes, vaginal dryness and vaginal discomfort.

Whether you’re worried about heavy or infrequent periods, concerned by ongoing pelvic pain or would like to talk with somebody about menopausal symptoms, our Consultant Gynaecologists would be delighted to help you. Please contact us today to book your appointment.

When you first meet your Consultant Gynaecologist at BMI The Saxon Clinic, they will take a clinical history and ask you to talk them through your symptoms. They will want to know:

  • What symptoms you have
  • How long you’ve had these symptoms for
  • Whether they have been getting worse
  • If you have pain in or around your pelvis or abdomen
  • Whether you’ve tried any treatments, such as pain relief medication or physiotherapy
  • If you have any particular concerns about your symptoms (for example, are you worried about the possibility of ovarian cancer?)

A physical examination of your pelvis and abdomen will often be needed, and this will be fully explained to you beforehand by your Consultant.

Depending on your symptoms, clinical history and the physical examination, your Consultant may refer you for further tests and investigations to help with diagnosis. These may include:

  • Blood tests
  • Cervical swab - to check for infection
  • Diagnostic scans – most often this will be an Ultrasound scan, but X-ray, MRI or CT can also be arranged if required.

Once the results of any tests are back, your Consultant will talk to you about them and discuss any treatment options with you.

If you have any questions or concerns, they will be very happy to talk through these with you for your peace of mind.

Many disorders and diseases of the reproductive system can be well treated and managed without the need for surgery.

There are a range of treatments available at The Saxon Clinic for gynaecological conditions. Non-surgical (conservative) options include:

  • Watchful waiting
  • Hormonal or other drug therapies
  • Physiotherapy
  • Behavioural therapy
  • Lifestyle modifications

If surgery is needed, this can be arranged for you by your Consultant. Common surgical options include:

  • Biopsy – a small sample of tissue is taken from the body and sent for further analysis
  • Fitting of a Coil (intrauterine device/ IUD)
  • Removal of polyps (a polyp is an abnormal growth of tissue)
  • Hysteroscopy - keyhole surgery carried out to investigate the inside of the womb
  • Laparoscopy - a type of keyhole surgery to look inside the cervix and uterus in order to diagnose and treat uterine conditions
  • Hysterectomy – removal of the uterus (womb). This can be carried out vaginally, abdominally or laparoscopically (keyhole surgery) and your Consultant will discuss the best option for you
  • Vaginal wall repair – corrects vaginal prolapse
  • Oophorectomy surgery – surgical removal of one or both ovaries.
  • Endometrial ablation – carried out to help prevent heavy periods
  • Laparoscopic myomectomies / ovarian cystectomy – keyhole surgery to remove ovarian cysts

Whatever treatment you need, whether surgical or non-surgical, the Gynaecology team at The Saxon Clinic are here to help you. Any treatment will be tailored to your specific requirements.

BMI The Saxon Clinic is easily accessible by road, train or bus and is located next to Milton Keynes University Hospital. While many of our patients live in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas, others travel from further afield in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire to visit with our Consultants.

Many are referred to us from their GP or private medical insurance company, while others are recommended by family members or friends who have been helped by us previously. While a medical referral can be helpful, you are welcome to self-refer. We treat people with private medical insurance and those who choose to use one of our self-pay options.

When you visit The Saxon Clinic for help, you will benefit from:

  • Fast access to expert help: Any problems within the reproductive system can be concerning, and you’ll appreciate being able to get help as soon as possible. We can arrange an appointment for you with an experienced Consultant Gynaecologist, who will thoroughly investigate your symptoms and arrange any treatment required.
  • A familiar face: One key advantage of The Saxon Clinic is that you will see the same Consultant Gynaecologist each time you visit.
  • Peace of mind: In an independent survey, 95.7% of the people we’d treated said they were likely or highly likely to recommend us to their friends and family. We appreciate this feedback and continue to focus on delivering the highest level of care to everyone who trusts us for their treatment.
  • Flexible appointments: Appointments are available throughout the week, so it’s easy to schedule an appointment with a Consultant Gynaecologist for a time that is most convenient for you. Appointments are routinely carried out in person at The Saxon Clinic, but we can offer remote consultations by telephone or video call if required (and where clinically appropriate).
  • Multidisciplinary team: Your Consultant Gynaecologist is supported by a number of other healthcare professionals, including nurses, physiotherapists and radiologists. If additional expertise is needed from another speciality, this is easily arranged.

Good support and guidance and effective treatments are available for a wide variety of gynaecological conditions. At your appointment, you will be able to talk about your symptoms and any concerns you may have.

Your Consultant will investigate the cause(s) of your symptoms, make a diagnosis and explore treatment options with you.

Should treatment be required, this will be arranged for you at The Saxon Clinic at the earliest opportunity.

For peace of mind and rapid access to expert help, why not book your visit now?

We look forward to helping you.
