Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a common disease where tissue similar to the lining of the womb grows outside it in other parts of the body and the most common symptom is pelvic pain. This pain often is the type that puts life on hold around or during a person’s period. However other symptoms are variable and this makes it difficult to get diagnosed.

Research suggests that there can be a delay in diagnosis of up to 6.5 years because of the variability of symptoms.  It can impact fertility for some but not for all.

Dr Kiran Vanza – Consultant Obstetrician/Gynaecologist at Femina has a special interest in advanced laparoscopic surgery for the purposes of diagnosing endometriosis much earlier and therefore being able to remedy appropriate treatments in a more timely manner.

Our specialist clinicians at Femina are able to provide comprehensive consults where the time is taken to adequately hear your story and to gather your history of symptoms so as to offer you more expedient diagnoses and treatment options.

Pelvic pain is very common in women and people assigned female at birth, at some time in their life- yet it is a condition that is poorly understood and often not recognised because it does not show on scans or at an operation. Those with pelvic pain often suffer for a long time before being able to find suitable solutions. People with pelvic pain have a wide range of symptoms for various reasons and it often starts in women during the adolescent years when menstruation begins; but some men and people assigned men at birth can also suffer with pelvic pain for various reasons.

Our specialist clinicians at Femina are able to provide comprehensive consults where the time is taken to adequately hear your story and to gather your history of symptoms so as to offer you more expedient diagnoses and treatment options through a holistic approach to your care under the one roof.

PCOS (PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome)

PCOS is a hormonal condition that affects about one in 10 women. This condition is associated with increased levels of two hormones in the body – insulin and androgens (male-type hormones). If you have PCOS you may not have periods very often or you may have periods that last many days. These hormone imbalances can lead to symptoms such as excessive facial and body hair, pimples and weight gain. It may also increase the risk of developing a range of other health conditions as you age such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment along with weight loss may lower the risk of long-term complications with overall health. Weight loss will assist to balance your hormone levels and bring symptoms under control.

Here at Femina, we take a holistic approach and can offer consultations to develop personalised lifestyle modification and weight loss plans that suit your current situation.
