Our team of Gynecologists, general and laparoscopic surgeons perform this complex surgery.

Most of the gynecological problems occurring in the adolescence period are either due to certain disease conditions or hormonal imbalances. A few important conditions include delayed puberty, menstrual irregularities, ovarian cyst, sexually transmitted infections, etc. Among these, delayed puberty often occurs because of family history or due to kidney diseases, nutrition deficiency in the diet, the irregular functioning of glands which are producing hormones for the occurrence of puberty. On the other hand symptoms like burning while urinating, constant fever,cramps, back pain denote menstrual irregularities. Ovarian cysts are termed as non-cancerous sacs containing fluid developed in the ovaries. This happens due to heredity, irregular menstrual cycles, and fat distribution. This area is slowly gaining importance, mainly due to increase in awareness.

Menopause & its management
Menopause is confirmed either with a simple urine test or by performing a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) test. The FSH levels start inclining at perimenopause and peaks after menopause. As a woman moves towards menopause, the menstruations become irregular and eventually stops. The period at this happens is called as the transition stage or perimenopause. If menopause occurs between 40-45 years, it is considered as early menopause. Combination hormone replacement therapy (HRT) done with estrogen and progesterone can be prescribed only if the uterus is present. Otherwise, with the absence of the uterus, usually, estrogen is prescribed.
