Overview of services
Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that forms the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) is found outside the uterus. This condition affects 10% of women globally.
Prolapse and Incontinence
The pelvic floor is a muscular partition that supports the pelvic organs, such as the uterus, bladder, and intestines. It is necessary in maintaining optimal pressure within the abdomen and ensuring a safe birth-passage during conception.
Intercourse pain or dyspareunia, is the experience of pain in the pelvic area during and immediately after sex.
Dyspareunia might be quite common but it is unknown exactly how many women suffer from it. Surveys suggest that anywhere between 1 and 4 in 10 women experience intercourse pain of some kind.
Ovarian cysts are fluid filled sacks either within or on the surface of an ovary. They mostly form during ovulation when an egg is released from the ovary. They are very common in premenopausal women and usually harmless; often causing little to no discomfort before disappearing on their own.
Uterine fibroids are benign tumours comprised of muscular and fibrous tissues that originally form in the womb. Sometimes ovarian fibroids can occur in addition to those inside the uterus. Fibroids develop from uterus tissue and vary in size, from microscopic to large growths similar in size to a grapefruit.
Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding
Vaginal bleeding can occur through different factors, with some causes easily treated. However, some may need further surgical assistance.
Abnormal Pap Smear
A Pap smear involves a small spatula and brush that collect cells from the cervix and vagina with the help of a speculum, which widens the vagina opening. It is a screen test for precancerous, cancerous, and potentially harmful cells that require further analysis.
