Women tend to ignore their health the most, especially in India. In a city like Darbhanga, the health of a woman comes last for a family. Societal constraints, unavailability of specialised doctors, financial reasons and a situation with no time for self, are few of the reasons responsible for forcing women to ignore their health and wellbeing. Ignoring abnormal bleeding during periods, post menstrual cycles or during menopause is often a common practice in women. This sign could be a suggestive of cancer, fibroids or any other complication. Paras Hospital Darbhanga has launched a specialised department to address the medical issues of women. The Gynecology department specialises in providing expert treatment for fibroids, uterine bleeding, PCOD, infertility, cervical cancer, endometrial cancers and other complications.
“Women in Darbhanga neglect their health. The out of pocket expense and burden is a major reason for them. Moreover the lack of specialised, hygienic facilities to provide value for money and specialised care are absent. This further creates discontent in the public. Paras Darbhanga has been able to bridge the gap. The modular OT’s, state of the art infrastructure and the diagnostic equipment help provide a 360 degree approach ensuring specialised care. Over the last few months we have been able to provide treatment to women suffering from abnormal bleeding, menstrual cramps, PCOD, infertility, ovarian cysts, prolapsed uterus and tubal blockages. In fact we have been able to treat and address these in numerous women and many patients have been treated medically and spared surgical removal of uterus ” shares Dr Talat Fatma, Consultant Gynaecology & Infertility Specialist, Paras Global Hospital, Darbhanga.
According to Dr Talat, “Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding is one of the most common complaints that women face. Bleeding is considered abnormal if you experience blood coming out of vagina after your periods, during menopause or if you’re menstrual flow is a bit heavier or even lighter. This bleeding could also suggest cancer, uterine fibroids, polyps, etc.”
Following are the signs and symptoms that suggest that you should consult a specialist immediately:
– Excess or prolonged vaginal bleeding
– Bleeding between periods
– Scanty bleeding during periods
– Not getting periods every month
– Bleeding or discharge after menopause
