General gynaecology services are medical services that focus on the female reproductive system and the overall women health.
These services may include routine gynaecological examinations, contraceptive counselling and management, management of menstrual disorders and menopause symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs, management of pelvic pain, evaluation and management of abnormal Pap smears, management of infertility, and evaluation and management of breast disorders.
It is important for women to schedule regular appointments with their gynaecologist to ensure their reproductive health and overall wellbeing.
Women's health problems can manifest in many different ways and can vary depending on the specific condition or illness. Some of the most common symptoms of women's health problems include:
Abnormal vaginal bleeding: This can include heavy or prolonged periods, bleeding between periods, or bleeding after intercourse.
Painful menstrual periods: Many women experience cramping or discomfort during their periods, but severe pain or pain that interferes with daily activities can be a sign of a health problem.
Painful intercourse: Pain during intercourse can be a sign of conditions such as vaginal dryness, infections, endometriosis, or other reproductive health issues.
Breast changes: This can include breast pain, tenderness, lumps, or changes in the appearance of the breast tissue or nipples.
Urinary problems: This can include frequent or urgent urination, painful urination, or incontinence.
Pelvic pain: Pain or discomfort in the pelvic area can be a sign of a range of conditions, including endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ovarian cysts, or fibroids.
Mood changes: Depression, anxiety, or other mood changes can be symptoms of hormonal imbalances or other health problems.
Abnormal vaginal discharge: Abnormal vaginal discharge can indicate an infection of the vagina (vaginitis) and/or cervix (cervicitis), or an infection of the upper genital tract.
Hot flashes: Hot flashes are a common menopausal symptom that can feel like a sudden heat, accompanied by sweating and flushed skin. Typically, hot flashes begin with menopause and can last until post-menopause or for the rest of your life.
It's important to note that all these symptoms can also be present in healthy women and may not always indicate a serious health problem. However, if you experience any of these symptoms, it's important to talk to your healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.
