Abnormal Pap Smears
Any issues related to the normal menstrual cycle are known as menstrual disorders. They are one of the most common reasons you might need to visit a gynaecologist.
Menstrual disorders and their symptoms can disrupt your daily life and affect your ability to become pregnant.
Routine gynaecological checkups often include pap smears, Colposcopy & abnormal pap smear management
Menopause is a natural process that results from normal ageing of the ovaries, it officially marks the end of female reproduction.
The average age of menopause is around 50 years of age in Australia, but in some women it can happen earlier or later.
If menopause happens before the age of 40, it is called “premature menopause”, this can happen naturally or can be induced by some medical treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy.
Perimenopause means “around menopause”, it is the stage in a woman’s life shortly before the occurrence of the menopause. It’s also known as the menopause transitional phase as it happens before menopause.
Although they’re both part of the same overall life transition, menopause and perimenopause have different symptoms and treatment options.
Any questions, concerns, or abnormal symptoms should be discussed with your obstetrician-gynaecologist (OB-GYN).
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) aims to replace the hormone or hormones that were made by the ovaries prior to menopause.
It is an effective treatment to manage and reduce many of the unpleasant side-effects of the menopause. HRT is considered appropriate for short-term use in women with moderate to severe menopausal symptoms.
HRT must be prescribed by a doctor and is not available over the counter. HRT comes in various forms and combinations of hormones (oestrogen and progesterone).
Anyone considering this treatment should discuss the benefits, risks and side effects with an obstetrician-gynaecologist and have their treatment well monitored.
