When to see your Gynecologist and what to Expect

The female reproductive system is highly complicated and can sometimes lead to medical issues that need immediate attention.

These issues can be related to hormone disorders, sexually transmitted infections, fertility, pregnancy and menstruation. Gynecology care is essential for every woman and to ensure that you know exactly how to prevent reproductive complications, here’s a brief account of when to see a gynecologist in Dubai.

The role of a gynecologist in female healthcare

In general, gynecologists are specialists who specialize in women’s health with a special focus on women’s reproductive system. They look into a wide range of medical issues including hormone imbalances, ovarian cysts, and childbirth to mention a few. An obstetrician is a gynecologist who specifically deals with women’s health through pregnancy and childbirth.

Gynecologists usually have more than eight years of experience and are certified by a renowned professional medical institution. They also have significant experience in a professional clinic or hospital, such as German Medical Center and are fully equipped to take care of a wide array of female reproductive issues.

When to see your gynecologist

Generally, there is no need to visit a gynecologist unless you experience any of the following conditions:
  • Issues with pregnancy, menstruation, fertility, and menopause
  • Family planning
  • Endometrial hyperplasia
  • Cervical dysplasia
  • Problems with pelvic organs: ligaments and muscles
  • Cancers related to reproductive organs
  • Congenital abnormalities in the reproductive tract
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Benign conditions like ovarian cysts, breast disorders, fibroids, and vaginal ulcers
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Sexual dysfunction

If you experience any of the mentioned conditions, seeing a gynecologist or obstetrician in Dubai is essential. Some of the reproductive diseases, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts and endometriosis, can become dangerous and lead to severe complications. Therefore, you need to keep an eye on symptoms like vaginal bleeding that occurs in-between periods, vaginal itching and urinary tract pain as they may be symptoms of other underlying reproductive problems. A visit to a gynecologist at least once a year can help you ensure that your reproductive health is in good shape.

What to expect

Your visit to the gynecologist depends entirely on your unique situation and medical history. If you are experiencing certain symptoms, your gynecologist will examine you and ask for blood tests and X-rays to understand your situation better. You may also have to take a Pap smear test which can be a little uncomfortable. If it is a general visit, your gynecologist will learn about your reproductive health in general, and you can ask questions about certain reproductive issues and their treatments in Dubai. It is recommended to visit a gynecologist at least once a year for the following:

  • General screening and evaluation
  • Immunizations depending on age
  • A physical examination to detect cancer and other possible underlying diseases that are hard to detect otherwise
  • A pelvic exam and a breast exam

Women go through a lot of changes in a lifetime. In order to ensure that those changes do not cause any reproductive complications, it is important that you take responsibility for your reproductive health and visit a gynecologist at least once a year.
