Menorrhagia Menorrhagia is an abnormally heavy and prolonged menstrual period at regular intervals. Menorrhagia can be caused by abnormal blood clotting, disruption of normal hormonal regulation of periods, or disorders of the endometrial lining of the uterus. Depending upon the cause, it may be associated with abnormally painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
Laparoscopy Laparoscopy (key hole surgery) is a way of performing a surgery. Instead of making a large incision (or cut) for certain operations, surgeons make tiny incisions and insert tiny instruments and a camera into a site, such as into the abdomen, to view the internal organs and repair or remove tissue
Endometriosis Endometriosis is a condition in which endometrium, the tissue that normally lines the womb (uterus), grows outside the uterus. Endometriosis may cause fibrous scar tissue to form on the uterus. It can also affect the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the bowel. Endometriosis may cause very painful periods and reduce fertility or cause infertility. Medical or surgical treatment may help endometriosis.
Fibroids Fibroids or myomas, are growths or benign tumours that form inside the uterus (womb). Fibroids are not cancer. Most women with fibroids do not have symptoms. However, if they do, symptoms may include heavy and painful periods, anaemia, infertility and miscarriage in pregnancy. Treatment options include medication and surgery, including arterial embolisation.
Hysteroscopy Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. Hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse Vaginal prolapse is a common condition where the bladder, uterus and or bowel protrudes into the vagina.This can cause symptoms such as a sensation of a vaginal lump, constipation, difficulty emptying the bowel or bladder or problems with sexual intercourse.
Stress incontinence Stress incontinence is the leaking of small amounts of urine during activities that increase pressure inside the abdomen and push down on the bladder. Stress incontinence is most common with activities such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, walking, lifting, or playing sport
