Smita IVF & Gynae Center
While most gynaecologists are also obstetricians, the field of Gynaecology focuses on all other aspects of a woman’s reproductive health from the onset of puberty through menopause and beyond.
Women see their gynaecologist for their annual Pap test and pelvic exam. Other reasons a woman would see her gynaecologist are for infections or any pain or discomfort in the uterus, genitals or breasts. Gynaecologists also assist with infertility issues and contraception.
Gynaecology diagnoses and treats diseases of the reproductive organs including cancer of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vagina and fallopian tubes. A gynaecologist also treats the prolapse of the pelvic organs. This is a condition usually present in postmenopausal women with weakened pelvic muscles that cannot support the uterus or bladder properly.
Other diseases treated are yeast and bacterial infections, irregular and painful menstruation, painful intercourse and other diseases related to menopause which may require surgery. Gynaecology encompasses specific surgical procedures related to female reproductive organs.
