Heavy menstrual bleeding, also known as menorrhagia, is menstrual blood loss which interferes with a woman’s physical, emotional, social and/or quality of life. It is a very common complaint, increasing in prevalence with age, peaking in women aged 30-49 years.

Causes of abnormal bleeding are diagnosed and treated accordingly.

Uterine fibroids are benign smooth muscle tumors of the uterus. Most women are asymptomatic while others may have painful or heavy periods. If they are large, they may cause pressure symptoms. The treatment is tailored to individual women’s wishes, lifestyle and specific medical conditions, if any.

At Aman hospital we aim for accurate diagnosis and effective management from the first presentation, this may help reduce the disruption of the woman’s life and may avoid an endless succession of referrals, investigations and operations. There is frequently more than one component to chronic pelvic pain.

Due to the multifactorial nature of chronic pelvic pain we aim to develop a partnership between the clinician and the woman to plan a management programme, this may involve a multidisciplinary approach to care.

These symptoms usually get better once your period starts and often disappeared by the end of your period. At Aman hospital we aim to help you better understand your health and your options for treatment and care. We are here to support you in making the decisions that are right for you.

Ovarian cysts are diagnosed with increasing frequency in post-menopausal women as more patients are undergoing imaging in connection with medical care. An ovarian cyst inevitably raises the question of its relevance to the women’s symptoms and concerns for the possibility of Ovarian cancer.

At Aman hospital, we aim to clarify when an ovarian mass can be managed within a general gynecological service or when a referral to a specialist gynecological oncology service is appropriate.

The most common presentation of Endometrial Hyperplasia is abnormal uterine bleeding. This includes heavy menstrual bleeding, intermenstrual bleeding, irregular bleeding, unscheduled bleeding on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and post-menopausal bleeding.

We aim to diagnose this appropriately and treat as necessarily.

  • Endometrial ablations: Procedure performed to remove the endometrium (inner lining of the uterus) to control heavy bleeding if suitable
  • Colposcopy: Simple procedure used to visualize and examine the cervix, the neck of the womb at the top of the vagina. It's usually performed to diagnose and treat if cervical screening discovers abnormal cells in the cervix

Urogynecology covers the services that provide assessment, investigations and treatment for women with urinary incontinence, vaginal prolapse, recurrent urinary tract infections, bladder pain and pelvic floor injury after childbirth.

The muscles, ligaments and connective tissue that hold a woman’s internal organs in place are called the pelvic floor. The bladder, bowel, uterus, vagina and rectum are held in place by the pelvic floor. Several medical conditions such as an injury or childbirth can cause weakness or tears in the pelvic floor muscles called pelvic floor disease. If your pelvic floor disease symptoms do not respond to conservative treatment your consultant may recommend surgery for pelvic floor repair.

There are several types of pelvic floor repair. Your surgeon may perform several procedures during your operation. You should have a detailed discussion with your consultant to determine which option is the best in your case.

“The change”, “the climacteric”, “the time of life” – call it what you will, it is an unavoidable fact that all women go through the menopause. However, for many women this natural process is a time of anxiety and distress due to the various symptoms that can accompany it. Some menopausal changes can also be brought about by treatments for cancer including chemotherapy, ovarian ablation and hormone therapy.

The menopause is when a woman stops having periods and is no longer able to get pregnant naturally. The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45-55 years of age, as a woman’s oestrogen levels decline. But around 1 in 100 women experience the menopause before 40 years of age. This is known as premature menopause or premature ovarian insufficiency.

The menopause is influenced by hormones – or more correctly by a change in hormone levels. For all women the menopause is a personal experience, not just a medical condition. Some symptoms may be quite distressing and may need medical attention.

There are many aspects to managing menopausal symptoms, ranging from lifestyle factors, complementary & alternative therapies, non-hormonal treatments and hormone replacement therapy.

Support and treatment is tailored to each woman according to her own individual circumstances.
