Cervical Dysplasia Treatment in Mumbai

The precancerous condition in which there is abnormal cell growth on the surface lining of the cervix, opening between the uterus and on the vagina is referred to as cervical dysplasia. Even though women below thirty years of age are most prone to this condition, it can affect women belonging to any age group. Getting a routine test from your gynecologist specialist helps diagnose it at the right time.

Causes of Cervical Dysplasia

One of the most common causes of cervical dysplasia is the human papillomavirus (HPV) in cervical cells. While the immunity system of most people is efficient enough to get rid of such a virus, the infection can still manage to survive in a few cases. HPV is most commonly transmitted from one person to another sexually. This includes vaginal, anal, and oral intercourse. Even though it is primarily a sexually transmitted virus, it is also capable to spread by contact with the skin.

Treating Cervical Dysplasia

Just as in the case of any medical condition, the treatment options for cervical dysplasia also depend on the severity of the condition. For instance:

  • > Mild cervical dysplasia: in most cases, the treatment of mild cervical dysplasia only consists of

What is Enterocele? How Is It Treated?

The prolapse of the small intestine i.e. descending of the small intestine into the lower pelvic cavity causing a vaginal bulge is called an Enterocele. On average 4% of women suffer this pelvic organ prolapse at some point in time, this risk increases in post-menopausal women. What causes Enterocele in women? The pelvic floor acts as a sac to support the pelvic organs – bowels, uterus and vagina with the help of the ligaments and muscles. When these ligaments and muscles weaken, the chances of organ prolapse increases significantly and over time the organs slip into the pelvic area. Enterocele is the condition where the small intestine due to lack of support begins to descend, presses against the upper vagina causing a vaginal bulge. Who are at risk of Enterocele? As the strength of pelvic muscles is strongly linked with estrogen levels in women, the risk of organ prolapse increases in women as their estrogen levels decline. So post–menopausal women above age 60 suffer a greater risk of Enterocele. But that is not all – the risk of Enterocele is high among women with certain medical conditions like bronchitis, asthma, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome or even for women who have undergone radiation therapy. In rare cases lifting heavy items, obesity, constipation or hysterectomy may also lead to this co

Uterine Septum Surgery in Mumbai

The urine septum is a frequent but undetected cause for female infertility and recurrent miscarriages; this is a condition where the uterus is divided in half and acts as an obstacle in successfully conceiving a baby. Why is uterine septum surgery advised?

  • During the initial stages of growth, two separate uteri come together and this leads to the formation of a female triangular-shaped uterus, but in the case of the uterine septum, the tissue between them also known as Mullerian tissue, is unable to reabsorb, so the rest of the tissue has to be removed. Along with this, any other tissue that acts as a hindrance has to be removed in uterine septum surgery.

What is the goal of the surgery? Uterine septum problems can cause issues related to menstruation, so doctors recommend surgery to correct symptoms of this abnormality. Uses of sanitary pads and tampons become easier after surgery and provide relief in menstrual pain. They don’t lead to any sort of health issues in women and some cases there might be no requirement for treatment but they can lead to future problems related to infertility in a few women. Other issues could be premature labour, recurrent pregnancy loss and miscarriages. In which cases is uterine sept

What Is an Epidural In Pregnancy?

Labour can be very painful, unbearable even, for some mothers. So, if you are thinking of getting an epidural to help you cope with the intense pain, then you are not alone. Observations have shown that more than 60% of women delivering in hospitals opt for an epidural during labour and delivery. Understanding the concept of Epidural? An epidural is an anaesthetic that numbs the body making it unable to feel any sort of sensation or pain. How Does It Work? This anaesthetic is injected into the space around the spinal nerves called the epidural space in your lower back by an anesthesiologist via a catheter. The process of numbing begins within 10 to 30 minutes. The catheter remains in the epidural space during labour and delivery to continually provide the medication when needed. Epidurals eliminate the pain from labour contractions as well as during birth quite effectively. Therefore, with this anaesthetic, birthing is made less painful. Types Of Epidurals While experiencing labour pains, you may be offered different types of epidurals. You must know which type you prefer.
