Gynaecology is the branch of medicine that covers the female reproductive system and treats gynaecological conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis and menstrual or menopause problems.
This procedure is a treatment for heavy menstrual periods. There are several methods available; all intend to remove permanently the lining of the womb. Approximately 40% of women who undergo this procedure will have minimal or no bleeding thereafter and another 50% will have lighter periods.
If prolapse is causing medical problems or symptoms that bother you, it may be necessary to consider surgery. Your consultant will discuss surgery with you fully before you decide to go ahead. Other possible treatments include pessaries placed inside the vagina, or simply leaving things alone if things aren’t too bad.
PMB is vaginal bleeding more than 12 months after the menopause. The concern is that it could originate from a growth inside the womb that could either be, or could become cancerous. For that reason women should always seek medical advice if such bleeding occurs; a woman will be seen in hospital within 2 weeks from referral.
