About obstetrics and gynaecology
Life Healthcare obstetrics services specifically care for women during pregnancy and childbirth, while our gynaecologists care for women throughout their life – from youth to menopause. Both specialists work together to keep a woman’s reproductive system healthy.
Some conditions that gynaecologists may treat or diagnose include:
These are small fluid-filled sacs that form on the ovaries. They may or may not be a cause for concern, depending on your doctor’s diagnosis.
This is a dull ache or pressure usually felt near the lower abdomen, genitals and surrounding areas. It’s usually a symptom of various conditions.
This is a disorder where tissue grows outside the uterus, forming on the ovaries, bowel and tissue lining the pelvis. It’s a chronic inflammatory condition that may negatively affect your quality of life and fertility.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition where a hormonal imbalance disrupts a woman’s normal reproductive processes as well as overall health and physical appearance. This may cause cysts in the ovaries, metabolic changes, a high level of male hormones and irregular or skipped menstrual periods.
Abnormal growths, usually non-cancerous, form in the uterus. This may cause heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pain.
