General Gynaecology

Whether you need a gynecologic check-up or you seek specialized gynecologic care in Dubai, it may be time to make an appointment with a gynecologist at American Hospital Dubai.

General Gynaecology:

General gynecology is a medical process that deals with female reproductive system health. Some of the issues related to the female reproductive system health includes pregnancy issues, childbirth issues, menstruation issues, fertility issues, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and hormone disorders. Apart from these, other various diseases may arise in specific female reproductive system organs like the ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus, vagina, vulva, etc and all these problems also fall in the domain of general gynecology.

Who to Consult For General Gynaecology?

The medical professional that specializes in general gynecology is called a Gynecologist. A Gynecologist is a highly qualified individual that provides consultancy for the issues related to the female genitalia. They make use of both medicines and various surgical procedures depending upon the specifications and the extent of the problem.
It is advised that females start consulting a Gynecologist regularly as soon they reach their teenage years in order to maintain their reproductive health throughout. In most cases, the patient must first see a General Physician (GP) before seeing a gynecologist. If the condition/illness is beyond the scope of a GP, the patient is then redirected to the gynecologist.
