Gynaecology, also known as ‘the science of women’, is the study of the female reproductive system, along with its functions, diseases and disorders. Almost every woman will, at some point in their lives, be affected by gynaecological problems which may range from minor ailments like mild vaginal infection to major conditions like cancer.
Every gynaecological problem can be managed in a variety of ways; there should not be a one-style-fits-all mentality. Be it medical, surgical, lifestyle changes or a combination of the above, the best treatment for you depends on your own unique set of concerns like your clinical symptoms, your age, your fertility wishes etc.

Common gynaecological problems that affect women include:
- Menstrual disorders (too heavy, too often, not often enough, painful menses)
- Vaginal discharge or discomfort like pain or itch
- Abnormal pap smear results
- Ovarian cysts
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome
- Menopausal symptoms
- Recurrent urinary tract infection
- Sexually transmitted infections
Even if you do not experience any obvious gynaecological discomforts, every woman is advised to have regular gynaecological checks to detect problems like pre-cancerous changes of the cervix, fibroids and cysts which may not have any symptoms in early phase of the disease. After all, prevention is better than cure.
