When Should I See My Gynaecologist

 

Gynaecology // August 20, 2020


At 25 Harley Street, our world leading obstetric and gynaecology team provide unparalleled care for all aspects of women’s health. We understand that reproductive and medical concerns can be distressing and impact day to day life, which is why we are proud to offer same-day consultations and holistic treatment for the full range of women’s health conditions.

Utilising our decades of experience and cutting-edge technology, our clinic brings the best minds and services together in one centre for your convenience and comfort. We are proud to be able to offer a full in-house service, taking you from initial consultation through to diagnosis and personalized treatment and management.

Not only does this cut down on time spent in hospital, it means collaboration between our experts is possible within hours, not days. If scans or tests are necessary, they can be carried out that day with results usually available for immediate discussion.

This results in a supportive service that allows for prompt diagnosis and complete, holistic care for each of our patients. Whilst we do serve a high number of patients, each woman and her needs are carefully looked at by our team of specialists, ensuring the best medical treatment for every patient.

Common Concerns

All aspects of female reproductive health are within the remit of our experienced consultants. Some of the more common concerns that we explore on a daily basis include:

  • Abnormal smear results
  • Pelvic and vaginal pain
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Ovarian cysts
  • PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
  • Pelvic Floor conditions
  • Surgical and cosmetic repair
  • Sexual issues

These represent only a small portion of conditions that we investigate and treat. If you have any symptom you think may be related to gynaecological or obstetric health do not hesitate to get in touch.

 

When Should I See My Gynaecologist?

Gynaecology checkups should form part of a woman’s regular health screening. They are also highly recommended whenever you may be experiencing pelvic, vaginal or vulval symptoms. In the past there has been some embarrassment and awkwardness surrounding intimate discussion and examination. As society matures these stigmas are fading and there is no reason to feel awkward or stay silent about your personal health. Our expert team holds your consultations with the utmost respect and confidentiality.

Unexplained significant pain or bleeding should always be seen as a matter of urgency. But what of other, more common symptoms?

Many women can endure gynaecological symptoms throughout their life simply because they think there are no other options. Aside from the common concerns mentioned, there are further reasons that you may want to discuss your health with one of our gynaecological experts.

These include but again are not limited to:

  • Intolerable period pain
  • Lengthy or very heavy periods lasting a week or more
  • Amenorrhea, or the absence of periods
  • Vaginal discomfort, odour or swelling
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Contraception options

 

These are not concerns that you should have to cope with alone or without support. Our experienced team will guide you through each step of our one day clinic, providing you with the diagnosis.
