Importance of Gynecology in Woman's Health

Publish on 2018-10-07

OB/Gyns specialize in screening and treatment of women’s specific medical problems related to pelvic health, breast disease, menstrual cycle, infertility, family planning, hormones, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and identifying risk factors responsible for cancer development.

Main Causes of Sexual-Reproductive Health Problems in Women

Most issues in women’s sexual reproductive health arise due to lack of knowledge, family history, poor hygiene, unsafe sexual intercourse, drug abuse, and physical trauma.

Complications can also arise due to lack of fitness, unhealthy diet, poor mental and emotional health. This is why regular gynecological exams are imperative to for a healthy lifestyle and to reduce any potential risks in the process.

Types of Tests

The most common tests include pelvic exam to determine the health of reproductive organs, Pap test to assess abnormal cells in the cervix and a breast exam to identify malignant breast nodules. The test also includes a range of questions on daily lifestyle, family history, and overall wellness.

Preventive Visits

Dubai’s renowned Gynecologist and Senior Consultant Obstetrician, Dr. Susanne Grothey recommends females to see an OB/Gyn between the ages of 13 and 15 when the hormones start maturation of reproductive organs and women become sexually active. The exams should be followed on an annual basis along with STD screening and contraception counseling. This helps in the detection of many disease processes earlier when treatment is most effective.

Annual visits also play a vital role in building trust between a woman and her health specialist which is extremely important if any health issue suddenly arises. Women with a well-established relationship with her health provider are at minimum risk of any cervical problems.

Finding the Right Gynecologist

By following the guidelines below, women can choose the right gynecologist for their needs.

1.    Considering Your Needs

Although OB/Gyns are practically aware of all medical concerns regarding a woman’s reproductive health, there are many subspecialties in gynecology that an OB/Gyn can help the patient refer to a specialist. Specific health concerns are best to consult with a medical expert who possesses strong command and experience in that area.

2.    How to Consult Sources

It is important to study profiles, background history, experience, and credentials while using sources to find a good gynecologist in UAE, especially when searching online. Word of mouth speaks louder than any recommendation, so it’s crucial to read reviews and testimonials from different forums, business listings, online directories, social media pages, and national databases.

3.    Finding Shared Values

Making the first visit count is highly important. The first meeting allows the patient and the healthcare provider to discover shared values and certain topics such as birth control, pregnancy and natural childbirth. By asking questions regarding these subjects the person can understand if the physician aligns with her goals, is willing to provide a clear picture of their bedside manner and prevent any uncomfortable situations from the opposite standpoint.

4.    Affiliation with Hospital

Another important check is making sure if the hospital the OB/Gym is affiliated with maintains high-quality standards and offers top-tier facilities. This is where the woman will visit to get medical tests or treatments regarding her reproductive health, pregnancy or delivering a baby. Here are some key metrics to look after

  • Hospital location and department premises
  • Percentage of patients who developed post-surgery infections or complications
  • Death rates for different procedures and conditions
  • Reviews on the services, facilities and staff
