Gynecologist in Karol Bagh

Vaginal pain and irregular ovulation cycle are some common issues which are ignored by women. This constant ignorance can lead to complications in the future. In order to effectively spot and diagnose the problem, a specialist dealing specifically in women related issues is needed. In medical terms, this specialist is known as a gynaecologist. A gynaecologist focuses on women’s reproductive health and deals with a wide range of issues such as fertility, pregnancy, STDs, hormonal imbalance, etc. It is imperative for a woman to visit her gynaecologist at least once a year and with no delay in case of pain, irritation or unusual discharge. At Apollo Spectra, we have a highly experienced team of gynaecologists who offer expert diagnosis and gynaecological care on a wide spectrum of issues.

What are the most common conditions treated by a general physician in Hyderabad?

It is essential to visit a gynaecologist because:

1) Teenage girls are particularly unaware of the complex nature of changes that develop during puberty. It is necessary to understand these changes and have a discussion with your gynaecologist. Forming a good relationship with your doctor enables you to be more expressive of your problems which in turn results in a proper diagnosis.

2) It is essential to visit a gynecologist because he is the right person to guide you during the developing phase and enables you to have an understanding of your body. The specialist can further guide on proper hygiene, making you aware of the signs of infection. Some common tests performed by the gynaecologist are pap smear tests, ultrasound, and tissue samples.

Which situations can prompt a visit to the gynaecologist?

Symptoms which can prompt a visit to the gynaecologist are:

  • If you miss your period for three or more months
  • Unusual menstrual flow
  • Signs of abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Itching/ Irritation on/near vagina
  • Any outgrowth on/ near vagina
  • Symptoms of cancer
  • Unusual pain which can be due to abnormalities in the reproductive tract
  • Depression-like symptoms which can be caused by hormonal changes
  • Extensive facial and body hair
  • Sudden weight gain or loss

While you might ignore the above-stated symptoms, these cause some of the worst recurring infections. Itching or any outgrowth near vagina needs to be treated immediately or it can result in infections like E.Coli or conditions like a Bartholin’s cyst. Any lump on or near the breast needs to be examined by your specialist to detect any signs of breast cancer.

What are some diseases treated by a gynaecologist?

A gynaecologist can help you treat most of the diseases through antibiotics or other drugs if diagnosed early. Sometimes, these diseases or infections call for minor or/and major surgeries. The most common diseases and conditions treated by a gynaecologist are:

  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Menstruation and Menopause
  • Infertility
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Cysts in reproductive organs or breasts
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections
  • Inflammation and others
  • Cervical or breast cancer
  • Urinary Tract Infections
What are some things you should know before visiting a gynaecologist?
1) A gynaecologist can help you treat all issues but it calls for extensive self-effort to get the best result.
2) You should be honest in confessing about your problems. An honest description of health status and lifestyle is the key to getting the right issue diagnosed.
3) In case of any allergy or irritation don’t shave your private parts before visiting your gynaecologist

A yearly screening is recommended for women of all ages. It comprises general screening and understanding, administration of immunizations (if required), overall physical examination, pelvic and breast examination. Blood and urine samples can be taken for the screening process.
If you notice any symptoms, its vital that you see your gynaecologist at the earliest.
