Within the Gynaecology Unit we have an area dedicated to Family Planning, to provide advice on different contraceptive methods and to help to choose the most appropriate one based on the characteristics of the patient and on the indications and contraindications of the methods.
It is important to never self-medicate and to listen to the opinion of an expert on the subject.
Women’s Health Check-up
All women should have a women’s health check-up every year. In this periodic health check-up, a correct gynaecological medical history is created by gathering personal, medical, obstetrical, family, gynaecologic, sexual and contraceptive information as well as data on habits and medicines and performing complementary tests:
Gynaecological and breast exam.
Cervical-vaginal smear test.
Relevant blood tests, both general and hormonal.
Gynaecological ultrasound scan.
It is important not to skip these check-ups, since they also involve the early detection of diseases such as cervical or breast cancer, which, if detected in its early stages have high recovery rates.
Menopause is the period after the last menstruation, where a series of very significant and varied physiological changes occur which can disturb the normal life of any woman. We consider menopause to occur after one year without menstruating.
We provide advice to patients going through the menopause and climacteric phases, explaining their immediate and future consequences, as well as the most common clinical symptoms during pre- and post-menopause.
A diagnosis of the climacteric state and possible related pathologies (particularly metrorrhagia and osteoporosis) will be performed. A series of recommendations on hygiene, diet and alternative pharmacological therapies will also be provided.
