Long-Acting Reversible Contraception

The field of family planning has been associated with an eternal quest for safe, effective, and convenient contraceptives. Long-acting reversible Contraception (LARC) is a revolutionary practice that allows people to have an easily available yet highly effective and convenient tool for controlling reproductive health. LARC methods like IUDs and contraceptive implants offer extended protection from unwanted birth. This article shall talk about the advantages of LARC and how this method can revolutionize family planning.

  1. Unparalleled Effectiveness –

The effectiveness of LARC methods is its greatest strength; as compared to short-term contraceptives such as birth control pills, long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) are more effective at preventing unwanted pregnancies. For instance, IUDs have a failure rate of less than 1%, making them some of the most effective contraceptive methods. This high efficacy comes from the fact that they can provide uninterrupted protection without the need for compliance and hence low human pill intake risks.

  1. Convenience and Low Maintenance –

As far as their convenience and lack of maintenance go, the LARC methods are ahead. Once inserted, IUDs and implants are long-acting contraceptives that can last from 3 to 10 yea

Salpingitis: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Salpingitis is a medical term for inflammation of the fallopian tubes, which connect the ovaries to the uterus in the female reproductive system. It often starts with lower abdominal pain that worsens with ovulation or menstruation, accompanied by cramping and pelvic pain. In some cases, the pain is also accompanied by fever, tiredness, painful urination, and vaginal discharge. “Surprisingly, Salpingitis can be a silent threat with no symptoms in a few cases. This is dangerous because stealthily, this condition may damage the uterus and fallopian tubes, leading to infertility and pregnancy problems,” says the best female gynaecologist in Mumbai, Dr. Neelima Mantri.

Salpingitis – Can Be Silent & More Prone in Younger Women:

Unlike other gynaecological conditions, Salpingitis is more common among younger women, who are often unaware of this situation. Also, unlike other inflammation conditions, Salpingitis can have non-sexual causes, like surgery, bacteria during childbirth, and IUD insertion. When not treated early, Salpingitis can cause adhesions, scars, and even block fallopian tubes, hindering egg development and leading to fertility problems. In this blog with

All You Need to Know About Cervicitis

Cervicitis is the inflammation of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus. While inflammation is commonly considered a simple condition, Cervicitis can be complicated and may increase the risk of pregnancy complications, infertility, and pelvic inflammatory disease. It also significantly increases the chance of sexually transmitted infections. So, what is Cervicitis, and how is it identified and treated to lower its impact on women’s reproductive health? We asked the top gynaecologist in Mumbai, Dr. Neelima Mantri, and read on to find the answers.

What is Cervicitis? What are its symptoms?

The cervix is a narrow, tunnel-like structural pathway that connects the vagina with the uterus. When a woman has her period, the discharge comes from the uterus through the cervix and the vagina. So, when this pathway becomes inflamed due to one reason or another, a woman may develop Cervicitis. Cervicitis manifests in women as abnormal vaginal bleeding, back pain, prolonged vaginal discharge, vaginal pain, pain during sexual intercourse, and a pressure sensation on the pelvis. In severe cases of Cervicitis, women may experience pus-like vaginal discharge too.

What Causes Cervicitis?

The causes for inflammation are usually sexually transmitted infections like Chlamydia, Herpes, Gonorrhoea, and , , ,

Vaginal Atrophy: Causes Symptoms and Treatment

An inflammation, thinning, and dryness of the vaginal walls is known as atrophic vaginitis. After menopause, it typically occurs as a result of declining estrogen levels. As ovaries generate fewer hormones during menopause, the body begins to go through multiple changes. The hormone estrogen levels tend to decrease by about 85% in vaginal atrophy cases. The urethra, the pelvic floor muscles, the vaginal lining, as well as the vulval skin are all thin when estrogen levels are low. Reduced blood flow in the pelvis and discomfort in these regions are also possible effects of this. Lately, the term genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), which is more recent, has taken the place of vaginal atrophy. This new phrase assists in describing the urinary as well as vaginal signs and symptoms that may develop from low estrogen. Although atrophic vaginitis is a typical menopausal symptom, not much is known about the ailment, therefore few people look for atrophic vaginitis treatment.

The Causes

Estrogen is required for the vagina (as well as other tissues in the pelvis) to remain functional. The elasticity and fullness of vaginal tissues decline as estrogen levels drop. They instead become drier, thinner, and more sensitive. As a consequence, there is a higher chance of irritation or abrasions, which can lead to , , ,

Uterine Artery Embolization: Procedure and Recovery

Uterine Artery Embolization is a minimally invasive procedure employed to address uterine fibroids. These fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. The process entails obstructing the blood flow to the fibroids which results in their reduction in size leading to eventual demise. This is recommended for women with symptomatic fibroids, which results in heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and pressure on the bladder and this process also serves as an option for women who do not want to go for traditional surgery such as myomectomy. Nowadays, one can get this done easily, especially in tier 1 cities like Mumbai where a person can easily consult any of the best gynecologists in Mumbai or any other well-known place.

The Procedure:

Embolization of the uterine artery usually requires a duration ranging from 30 minutes to one hour to be accomplished. At first, the doctor will use X-ray guidance to access the uterine artery and block the blood supply to the fibroids. The patient will be administered a gentle sedative to aid in their relaxation before the treatment. A minor cut is created in the groin region, through which a slender tube is placed into the femoral artery. Subsequently, the catheter is steered along the artery pathway until it reaches the uteri
