Are Uterine Fibroids Serious?

 

Hello,

Everyone, I’m Dr Sanket Pisat. I’m a consultant gynaecological laparoscopic surgeon, practising in Andheri in Mumbai and today we are going to talk about fibroids. Fibroids are among the communist non-cancerous tumours that grow in the reproductive tract of the female genital system. It is surprising to know that as many as 40% of women will have had an issue with fibroids in their entire lifetime. Some of these fibroids might actually be symptomatic in the sense that they may trouble the patient in terms of giving symptoms like excessive bleeding or inability to get pregnant or a sense of continues heaviness in the lower abdomen or symptoms like urinary symptoms or bowel symptoms where the patient cannot evacuate her bowels completely. Now a lot of these fibroids may actually be asymptomatic in the sense that they have no bearing on the women’s health at all, however most of these fibroids if they are symptomatic almost always require to be treated. Fibroids can be detected by a good ultrasound examination and it is worthwhile to remember that not all fibroids require treatment or require surgery.

A lot of this fibrosis can be left alone without any sequel and some of these fibroids can be managed very well with medicine without the need for surgery however in a select group of patients there are fibroids in the uterus which are causing problems like infertility the inability to get pregnant or heavy menstrual bleeding these are the fibroids that generally require surgery now previously this kind of surgery was done by opening up the abdomen and removing the fibroids. Not anymore now this surgery is done by what we call keyhole surgery or laparoscopy in which two or three small cuts are made on the abdomen and the entire fibroids can be removed these two or three cuts. It is a day care surgery in the scene the patients get admitted in the morning and is usually discharged in the same day or the next day for the removal of fibroids. Because of the advancement in fibroids removal this surgery has become extremely cost effective, painless and with a minimal hospital stay of maybe one or two days the other variant of fibroids is the fibroids that grow with in the uterine lining which are called submucouse fibroids and these can be managed virtually by a scar less called hysteroscopic fibroid removal in which the entire surgery is done through the vagina without having to take a single cut on the patients abdomen other treatment options for fibroids are also available called uterine artery embolization which is actually a small surgery to block the blood supply to the fibroids so that over time the fibroids shrinks and don’t grow anymore. The other option available for the treatment of fibroids is the use of a high-intensity beam much similar to the ultrasound we use for locating and seeing the fibroids but in much intensity in order to melt the fibroid so fibroid never comes back and gives you a pain-free life. Of course the whole decision of which treatment modality can be used in which patient and is suited best for whom has to be left to the doctor because there are several points to consider if you are planning of pregnancy as to how and where the fibroid should be removed and which fibroid should be left alone so that the pregnancy outcome or your future health is not affected.

Hello Everyone,

This is Dr. Sanket Pisat. I am a consultant Gynecological Laparoscopic surgeon working in Adheri in Mumbai.

And today we are going to talk about endometriosis. Endometriosis, as you may have heard from newspapers or report, is a disease that effects the reproductive track of the females quite commonly. The incidence of endometriosis in the past few years, mainly attributed to a late age of marriage, a late age of pregnancy or sometime because of having no children at all. So what is actually endometriosis? Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of the uterine lining which should normally be growing within the uterus at places where it should not be growing like the other organs within the abdominal cavity for example on the ovaries. What happens that is this endometrial lining causes pockets of blood filled tissues on the other organs like the ovaries or the intestines and result in tremendously painful periods to the patient, also sometimes resulting in infertility. The diagnosis of endometriosis is largely clinical, in a sense that sequelae or a set of symptoms commonly suggest that you may be suggesting from endometriosis. These include very heavy periods, tremendously painful periods or an onset of pain just before the periods but going away as the period start or sometimes just plainly infertility. Other times in some patient it may be a difficulty in sexual intercourse or pain during sexual intercourse and all of these require intensive investigation. Sometimes endometriosis can be diagnosed by an ultrasound examination in which the cyst in the ovary show the presence of endometriosis and these are the patients who require surgery. Endometriosis surgery can nowadays be done by laparoscopy or minimally invasive surgery in which there are hardly three or four cuts take in the abdomen which are less than a centimetre in size and the entire disease of endometriosis can be removed by surgery through these three or four ports. Of course, some pockets of endometriosis which are attached to vital organs within the body may not be removed but these then can be managed by medicines alone. In other patients, endometriosis is not as wide spread, the entire disease can be controlled by medicines alone and the patient can be given long term therapy for about three months or six months to make sure that the endometriosis stays quist and does not grow again. A word of conscience for these patients with endometriosis who are also suffering from infertility is that it is essential to plan pregnancy and child birth early because endometriosis is a disease of recurrence and a disease of progression and as age advances an endometriosis increases in intensity. It becomes more and more to conceive either naturally or by any form of assistive reproductive techniques.

Hello Everyone,

And today we are going to discuss about ovarian cyst. Cyst in the ovary is a very common finding that you will found reported on several ultrasound studies done women who have presented varying complaints. Cyst may be the cause of infertility which is the inability to get pregnant. They may be the cause of heavy menstrual bleeding or they may be a cause for continuous dilating pain abdomen which the woman is experiencing before her periods or unrelated completely to her period. There can be several reasons for why there are cysts in the ovary and likewise these cysts may or may not dangerous and may or may not require treatment at all. Some of the commonest cyst that are seen in the ovary are poly cystic ovaries which are multiple small fluid filled balloons present inside the ovary itself which are a collection of follicles not ruptured which should have ruptured every month with every menstrual cycle. A lot of time these patients with these kind of polycystic ovaries have got menstrual disturbance find it difficult to get pregnant. This particular kind of variances can be manages wit medicine alone without the need for surgery or very rarely a small laparoscopy procedure called: polycystic ovarian drilling may be done. The other larger cyst seen in the ovary may or may not be cancerous in origin. Some of these are called simple ovarian cysts, which are just fluids filled vesicles formed in the ovary during the process of menstruation but get dissolved as the periods have gone by. Some of these cyst are in born, like dermoid cyst which is a collection of fat within the ovary itself and sometimes women endometriotic cyst which is the collection of blood filled pockets within the ovary which cause tremendous pain during periods and make it difficult for the patient to get pregnant. Rarely however these cyst can actually be cancerous in origin or may be preload to a cancer so it is so it is important that they be investigated fully. Most of the times cyst can be diagnosed by an ultrasound examination alone but sometimes these cyst may require T scan or an MRI for a diagnoses. As far as treatment is concerned some cyst can be managed by medicines alone but a lot of times these cysts needs to be removed. Earlier this kind of surgery need to be performed by open surgery or by opening the abdomen but now by laparoscopy or minimally invasive surgery it is possible only two or three cuts on the abdomen and remove the ovarian cyst with minimal damage to the ovarian tissue that means only the cystic part of the ovary which is abnormal can be removed and the rest of the ovary be left behind in order to continue its reproductive function, to continue its hormones secreting function and cause no symptoms to the patient later on.

Hello Everyone,

I am Dr. Sanket Pisat. I am a consultant Gynecological Laparoscopic surgeon practicing in Adheri in Mumbai.

And today we are going to talk about fertility enhancing Endoscopic Surgeries, no as you all may be appear infertility is a very common problem that is faced by a lot of couples these days which is basically inability to get pregnant. Now while there can be several problems as to why a couple cannot conceive children. One of the main causes is that in the light of more career option family and child bearing take a back seat until a very advance age. Sadly the body clock cannot be turned back and it does not really wait for us. There can be many causes as to a woman doesn’t get pregnant but in at least 50 % of the cases, actual cause can be found and located within the reproductive system of the woman itself. So after confirming that the male partner does not have any particular problem for which he should be treated, it is worthwhile to look into the defects of the female reproductive system and if thee defects can be corrected than pregnancy can be achieved rather simply. Now there can be a lot of defects ranging from a very small opening of the cervix which is the entry point of the uterus to poorly growing lining of the endometrial cavity which is the inside of the uterus to fibroids in the uterus or cyst in the ovary or even blocked tubes. All of these problems can be corrected by a procedure which is called diagnostic laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. Laparoscopy is basically the examining of the insides of the abdomen and reproductive organs using the camera system. Using this camera system we are able to examine every aspect of the female reproductive system and any correctable problems for example if there is a fibroid seen or if the tubes are blocked, those can be corrected at the same instant. It’s a very simple procedure, requires a single day of admission and the entire procedure is done through one or two small sized cuts on the abdomen so the patient is virtually painless after and can go immediately. Likewise there is another advance procedure called hysteroscopy, in which the inside of the uterine cavity where the baby actually grows can be examined using a camera system and a lot of defects namely, you may have defects that are congenital origin or they are since birth uterine septa or there may be am excessive band formation between the uterine cavity cynic or small growth within the uterine cavity called fibroid of polyps. Many of the times these small growth or small pathologies cannot be seen by diagnostic modalities like ultrasound, CT scan or MRI. Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy give us option of being able to diagnose these findings and treat these findings at the small instance which is almost one day procedure and the patient walks away with hardly any pain or hardly any sequelly. To summarize, fertility enhancing endoscopy surgery holds tremendous for the infertile couple in home. Small pathology which have not being diagnosed which have actually being the cause of their infertility and on surgical correction of these fertility in a single sitting it is possible for the couple to achieve pregnancy without really going for multiple or expensive treatment options like In Vito Fertilization and test tube babies.

Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Visiting Gynaecologist? 15 Questions You Must Ask

There are many questions a woman may have in mind for her gynecologist but never asked them. Here are 15 such questions along with their solutions.

1. Does my vagina smell unpleasant?
You should shower it with water and gently wipe it with a wash cloth before any test. Applying perfume makes the smell even worse.

2. What to do in case the feet stink?
You should wear fresh and clean socks before going for the test and getting in the stirrup which is a metal device for convenience of gynaecological tests.

3. In case of a period, should I cancel my test appointment?
A gynaecologist is not afraid nor disgusted by blood as blood is a part of the specialist's profession. If you have heavy bleeding, you can call up the nurse for suggestions.

4. What if the doctor or nurse judges my body?
Your gynaecologist does not care about your body and is more concerned about your problems and how to solve them.

5. What if my legs are unshaved?
Your gynaecologist really does not care about your legs or underarms or any part of your body. Your problem is the only concern for the doctor.

6.What if my shaved hair looks ugly?
As stated before, the gynaecologist is only concerned about your problem and nothing else. Use a sharp razor to prevent bumps or ingrown hair.

7. What is the speculum?
It is a device used by your gynaecologist for opening your vagina in order to observe the cervix or look for infections on the vaginal wall.

8. Why do I urinate in my pants if I sneeze, laugh or cough?
This is a common phenomenon for women who have given birth and is easy to treat.

9. Is my vaginal discharge normal?
Having a small amount of white vaginal discharge is quite normal.

10. What does the gynaecologist check inside my vagina using hands?
The bimanual exam is done using the hands to detect problems in the uterus.

11. What if I do not like birth control means?
There are over 50 methods of birth control and many pills you can choose from.

12. Can I ask about my sexual problems?
Absolutely yes, as it is quite an important issue.

13. Can my partner or family accompany me to the test?
Yes, they can but during the time of the test, they should leave the room.

14. Can I discuss my relationship problems?
Your gynaecologist should know about any issue you are having.

15. If I am having forced sex, should I tell?
Such matters should be conveyed immediately.

You can ask your gynecologist any question, which bothers you, without fear.

Post Delivery Workout - The Right Time To Begin

Post Delivery Workout - The Right Time To Begin

Exercise after pregnancy can make a woman feel at her best. It can help her to lose extra pounds specifically when it is combined with reduced intake of calories. It will also boost her level of energy and relieve stress along with strengthening and toning abdominal muscles. Exercising regularly will also set a positive example for your baby so that he or she can imbibe the same and include it in their regime from an early childhood.

Workout and Breast-feeding: Are they related?

Exercise is not deemed to have any negative effects on either breast milk composition or volume. It also doesn’t affect the growth and development of a nursing baby. Though some researchers report that high-intensity weight loss training may cause accumulation of lactic acid in the breast milk causing a sour taste, but such instances are very rare and don’t happen with regular free hand to moderate exercise.

If you are willing to indulge in vigorous exercise during the first few months of feeding your baby, you can feed him or her before exercising or pumping the milk before workout and feed it afterwards. Alternatively, you can take a shower after the workout and express a few drops of milk before feeding your baby.

When is the right time to start workout?

If you had experienced an uncomplicated normal delivery, it is particularly safe to start exercising after a few days of giving birth or as soon as your body feels ready. If you had a complicated birth, or a C-section or an extensive vaginal repair, you should seek advice from a gynaecologist about the ideal time to start a workout program.

Activities that you may start with:

For the majority of healthy women, the Department of Health and Human Services suggests at least 150 minutes of moderate exercises or aerobic activity spanning through a week. You may start with a simple and low impact exercise such as a plain walk. You can even look for a post-partum workout class at a local fitness club, gym or community centre. Then you can proceed towards starting pelvic tilt and kegel exercises.

When you are nursing a newborn, getting enough time for routine exercises can be very challenging. Hormonal imbalance would bring about mood swings and some days you may feel too tired for a full-time work workout. out. However, you must never give up; speak with a health care specialist and seek the support of your partner and friends to stay motivated right through. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Genital warts can occur in both the genders. The virus generally spreads through sexual intercourse. In men, warts appear around the scrotum, the tip of the penis or the anus. In women, warts might form around the vaginal walls, the cervix or around the anal canal. If you had any form of oral contact with the genitals of an already infected person, genital warts can form around your throat or mouth.

The symptoms of genital warts are as follows:
1. Severe itchy sensation and discomfort around the genital areas.
2. Bleeding during sexual intercourse
3. Formation of numerous small, grey bumps around the genital region
Genital warts are caused by genital HPV’s, which are transmitted, primarily through sexual contact. In most of the cases, the immune system is able to combat the virus and makes you less susceptible to this disorder.

However, you might be at an increased risk of developing genital warts because of the following reasons:
1. Engaging in unprotected sex, that too with different partners.
2. Past history of other sexually transmitted infection
3. Being sexually active from an early age
4. Having unprotected sexual intercourse without being aware of one’s medical history

The treatment for genital warts depends on the severity of the condition. If the warts are causing significant pain and discomfort for you, your doctor might opt for one of the following procedures to get rid of the same:
1. Application of Imiquimod creams around the affected area might help treat the condition.
2. A regulated application of ‘Trichloroacetic’ acid on the affected areas might help to burn off the genital warts.
3. Application of a solution of ‘Podophyllin’ on the affected areas might help destroying the soft tissues around the genital areas.
4. If your warts are significantly large in size or do not respond well to medications, you can also opt for surgical excision or laser therapies to get rid of them. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

4 Causes Of Vaginal Rashes

4 Causes Of Vaginal Rashes

Vagina is one of the most delicate organs of your body. While you tend to the hygiene of other body parts, caring for the vagina either doesn’t strike you or it is too taboo a thing to be discussed about. Vaginal rashes are prevalent among many women and in most cases, they are not aware of ways to approach the problem. Rashes can lead to extreme uneasiness and if neglected, could even cause complicate health disorders. Thus vaginal rashes should be treated with proper medical assistance and watchful sanitation.

Factors that can cause vaginal rashes:

  1. Warts in and around a person’s genital: Warts are infections that can have a painful and disturbing effect on your health. Genital warts are the result of sexually transmitted infections. The diverse kinds of human papillomavirus are known to trigger the formation of vaginal rashes.
  2. Infections caused due to the predominance of viruses: Vaginal rashes may exhibit themselves in the form of aching blisters. This symptom could be indicative of Genital Herpes that further needs medical expertise to be dealt with.
  3. Folliculitis could cause suffering: The base of a hair shaft is indeed a sensitive area. Any infection pertaining to hair shafts surfacing usually in the form of a red lump can worsen to cause rashes in your genitalia.
  4. A cyst in the Bartholin gland could be the reason: A Bartholin gland is one of the two glands positioned at the opening of a person’s vagina. A cyst might happen to develop in any one of these glands due to accumulation of fluids produced by the glands itself. Secondary symptoms of such a condition could be red, itchy rashes.
  5. Candida Fungal: Candida albicans is the most common type of fungus to cause yeast infections. Sometimes, other types of candida fungus are to blame. Common treatments usually cure a Candida albicans infection. Yeast infections caused by other types of candida fungus can be more difficult to treat, and need more aggressive therapies.

Symptoms that help a doctor identify the prevalence of rashes in your vagina:

  1. Redness of the skin in and around one’s vagina is a characteristic feature of an underlying problem.
  2. Your vagina could itch persistently preventing you from free movement. Constant itching can also hamper your otherwise smoothly functioning sex life.
  3. The skin around your vagina can become excessively dry and peel off as a result.
  4. Tenderness and soreness are common symptoms that make sitting or lying down troublesome.
  5. Vaginal rashes may or may not be accompanied by a stinging, throbbing pain.

Uterine Fibroids - 3 Major Causes

Uterine Fibroids - 3 Major Causes

Uterine fibroids are referred to as benign, abnormal growths which tend to develop in the uterine walls of a woman. The size of such growths can range from a few centimeters to even excess of a few inches. As such, they can cause the uterus to increase to the size of a five month pregnancy. Although, the symptoms of fibroids are not always apparent, they often cause heavy bleeding and pain in women. A recent research concluded that around 60 to 75 percent women contract such fibroids by the age of 50, at least once in their life.

Depending on the site of formation, uterine fibroids are distinguished into different types. Intramural fibroids in the lining of the uterus and subserosal fibroids which develop outside the uterus are the most commonly observed fibroids.

What causes Uterine Fibroids?
Although, the exact reason for the formation of fibroids are obscure, medical professionals have determined certain factors that may affect their formation. Some of them are:
1) Hormones: Progesterone and estrogen, produced by the ovaries regenerate the uterine lining during each menstrual cycle and trigger the growth of fibroids.
2) Family history: If you have had a family history of uterine fibroids, then you are likely to develop the condition yourself as well.

3) Pregnancy: The production of progesterone and estrogen increases during pregnancy which increases the likelihood of fibroids.

What are the signs of this condition?
Depending on the location and size of the tumors, symptoms of such fibroids include:
1) Heavy bleeding and blood clots during periods
2) Pain in the pelvis
3) Frequent menstrual cramps
4) Pressure and pain in the lower abdomen
5) Swelling in the abdomen
6) Pain while intercourse

What is the procedure of treatment?
Ultrasound and pelvic MRI are common diagnostic procedures to check for uterine fibroids. After diagnosis, depending on your age, size of the fibroid and your comprehensive health, the doctor would prescribe you with appropriate medications. Only after medications prove futile, doctors opt for minimally invasive surgeries.
