What are the conditions treated by a gynaecologist in Mumbai?

Common gynaecological problems in women treated by gynaecologists are:

Some may also suffer from premenstrual syndrome or PMS which has a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms that include mood swings, headache, fatigue, irritability, depression, food cravings and bloating of the abdomen. Your gynaecologist may prescribe painkillers to subside the pain.
  • Menstrual irregularities- The menstrual health of a woman speaks volume of her overall general health. The menstrual cycle should have a consistent pattern lasting for not more than 7 days. Any disturbance in the pattern like abrupt delay in the occurrence of periods, heavy or light bleeding, severe cramps may be symptoms of an underlying disease like PCOS or endometriosis. Your gynaecologist may be able to identify the actual cause of the irregularity by running various tests and help eradicate the problem.
  • Endometriosis- When the endometrium, the tissue lining the uterine wall thickens and starts growing outside the uterus, it causes severe pain and may also hinder the reproductive process in a woman. This condition is called endometriosis and may be characterized by cysts in the ovaries. Symptoms of endometriosis are severe pelvic pain, pain during periods, heavy bleeding, pain during intercourse and also miscarriages and infertility. Treatment may involve medications like painkillers or surgery depending on the severity.
  • Fibroids- Fibroids are uterine tumours that are prevalent in women of childbearing age. The causes of fibroids are unknown. High estrogen levels are known to influence the formation of a fibroid. Symptoms include heavy or prolonged periods, abnormal bleeding between periods, low back and pelvic pain, frequent urination, pain during intercourse. Diagnosis involves ultrasound abdominal and pelvic examinations, which will be performed by your gynaecologists. Treatment may include hysterectomy, myomectomy, anti-hormonal agents and painkillers to relieve pain.
  • Pelvic Inflammatory diseases- Infection in the pelvic region may cause inflammation. Possible infections include bacterial infections, STDs like gonorrhoea and chlamydia. The infection causes pelvic pain, fever, nausea, pain during intercourse and spreads from the cervix to the uterus and ovaries, affecting all parts of the reproductive system.
  • Cancer- Cervical cancer and ovarian cancer are prevalent cancers in women. Detecting them at an early stage may help in controlling and curing them. If you are above 40, it is advised you should visit your gynaecologist for regular screening to eliminate any possible risks.
  • Pregnancy and post-pregnancy care- A woman’s body goes through a variety of changes during pregnancy. The hormonal changes have an adverse effect and thus women need proper guidance and care.

Post-pregnancy care and guidance are all part of a gynaecologist’s routine visit.
