Gynaecological health FAQs
Q: What kind of menstrual problems do women experience?
A: Women can experience a number of problems with their periods including missed periods, heavy periods and excessive pain. Amenorrhoea is the lack of a period and causes include pregnancy, extreme weight loss, eating disorders, strenuous exercising, stress and breastfeeding. Hormonal problems such as those caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome can also be a cause.
Q: What causes abnormal bleeding?
A: Abnormal uterine bleeding is different from normal menstrual periods. You might experience very long periods, periods that are close together and also spotting or bleeding between menstrual periods. These changes are commonly hormonal but can also be caused by medical conditions such as polyps, fibroids, endometriosis and also cancer. If you are experiencing abnormal vaginal bleeding, it is advised to see a doctor.
Q: What is polycystic ovarian syndrome?
A: Most women who have PCOS have a number of small cysts in the ovaries. However, it is the collection of symptoms presenting together which establishes the diagnosis of PCOS rather than the presence of the cysts, which women can have for a number of reasons. PCOS is the most common cause of infertility in women and the symptoms usually start in teenage years and present with irregular menstruation. Other than this, the main signs are elevated levels of male hormones on testing which can lead to acne, excessive body and facial hair, male-pattern hair loss, weight gain and obesity, insulin resistance, dandruff, elevated cholesterol levels and elevated blood pressure.
