Gynaecology deals with the health, maintenance and management of problems in women, particularly relating to the reproductive organs.
Every woman is different and that is why we believe that each patient should receive unique, personalised, Consultant led care tailored to their individual circumstances. Women’s health issues can be extremely distressing, painful and can disrupt day to day life, regardless of a woman’s age.
With convenient appointments at short notice, we can help patients get an accurate, fast diagnosis and receive the right treatment as soon as is possible.
Our experienced team of Consultant Gynaecologists are skilled in using the very latest techniques and diagnostic equipment to ensure you receive accurate test results. If treatment is required, we will refer you to one of the expert centres that we will identify as appropriate for your treatment.
Ultrasound is used in gynaecologic investigation to assess the pelvic organs. Some reasons why a gynaecological ultrasound scan may be needed are:
- Abnormal periods or bleeding
- Pelvic pain
- To assess a lump that has been found such fibroids or ovarian cysts
- Polycystic ovaries
- Post-menopausal bleeding
- To check for coil position
Full gynaecological scan
This is performed for women with a variety of gynaecological complaints including infertility. Initially you will be asked to give a brief outline of your problem, the day of your last period (if relevant) and whether you have had any significant gynaecological or other medical problems in the past.
What is checked:
- The size and shape of the womb (uterus)
- The cervix
- The thickness of the lining of the womb (endometrium)
- The size and appearances of the ovaries
- The position of an intra-uterine contraceptive device in the uterus
- Any cysts or pelvic abnormalities
Normal fallopian tubes cannot be seen on the scan. Any pathology will be clearly documented.
