Our consultant gynaecologists will gain a full understanding of your problem by taking a thorough history of your symptoms and getting a better understanding of their exact nature.
This may include the severity and type of pain you may be experiencing as well as any associated symptoms, such as changes to your menstrual cycle or general health symptoms, such as fatigue.
Your gynaecologist will also gain an understanding of your previous medical history including any family history of similar symptoms or gynecological and related conditions. This will allow our gynaecologists to develop an accurate risk profile for your individual circumstances and request the most appropriate diagnostic tests as required.
State-of-the-art diagnostics available for you
Following your initial consultation our expert gynaecology consultants may organise a variety of tests and diagnostic procedures:
- Blood tests
- Urine tests
- Ultrasound scans
- MRI scans
- Urodynamic studies
- Internal examination with a camera (known as diagnostic colposcopy)
A diagnostic colposcopy is a procedure used to examine possible abnormal cells to the cervix and is performed by inserting a device known as a speculum into the vagina to allow visibility of the area by the gynaecologist.
Some medical fluid may be used to identify any abnormal cells further and if needed, your gynaecologist will take a tissue biopsy for lab based analysis.
When attending our women’s health unit due to pregnancy or possible pregnancy, our consultants will conduct a physical examination. We will also organise relevant ultrasound imaging which will be either a viability, anomaly or growth scan, depending on the circumstances.

Our women’s health unit offers comprehensive treatment options for the following gynaecological conditons:
- Vaginal wall prolapse

Depending on your exact circumstances, there may be a variety of pharmacological, non-surgical procedures and surgical treatment options available.
