A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a woman’s uterus. You may need a hysterectomy for many reasons. The surgery can be used to treat a number of chronic pain conditions as well as certain types of cancer and infections. The operation may include removal of the cervix; this is called a total abdominal hysterectomy. Sometimes the cervix is not removed; this is called a sub-total abdominal hysterectomy.
A Pap smear, also called a Pap test, is a screening procedure for cervical cancer. It tests for the presence of precancerous or cancerous cells on your cervix.
Endometriosis is a painful disorder in which similar tissue that lines the inside of your uterus – the endometrium – grows outside the uterus. It most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis. Endometriosis can cause severe pain, especially during menstrual periods. Fertility problems also may develop. Fortunately, effective treatments are available.
Uterine fibroids are benign tumours that originate in the uterus (womb). Although they are composed of the same smooth muscle fibres as the uterine wall (myometrium), they are much denser than normal myometrium. In most cases, fibroids do not cause pain or other symptoms. Fibroids are most common in women in their 30s and 40s, and tend to shrink after the menopause. The experts at Abhilasha hospitals have removed fibroids as big as 8 Kgs without blood transfusion!
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by bacteria that invade the urinary system and multiply. The infection can occur in any part of the urinary system, but usually starts in the urethra (a tube that carries the urine out of the body).
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a serious infection of the female reproductive organs. These include the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. PID can cause scar tissue to form in the pelvis and fallopian tubes. This damage may result in infertility, a future tubal pregnancy, or chronic pelvic pain.
Uterine prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken, providing inadequate support for the uterus. The uterus then slips down into or protrudes out of the vagina.
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a disorder marked by physical and emotional symptoms. It affects women one or two weeks before the beginning of their menstrual period. The cause of PMS is unknown. It may be that a complex combination of environmental, metabolic, and behavioural factors causes vulnerability to the hormonal changes associated with menstruation. A brain chemical, serotonin, may play a role in severe forms of PMS.
Women need contraception for most of their reproductive life and their needs differ at different stages – teenage, early (20 to 35 years old), late reproductive (36 to 45 years old) and premenopausal. All methods of contraception including surgical, pills, patches, injections, implants, vaginal diaphragm and various coils (namely copper IUCD and Mirena) are provided, tailored to your individual needs.
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the virus which causes genital warts and cervical cancer. The HPV vaccine, which now has its Indian license, gives excellent protection for teenagers and women who have never been infected with the virus before.
