Vaginal discharge causes undue concern in many women and their partners. It is important to appreciate that the vagina is a dynamic organ that responds to changing hormones in the female reproductive cycle. Secretions arise from the vagina and cervix, and vary depending on circulating female hormones. The secretions serve an important housekeeping function that carries away dead cells and bacteria. This keeps the vagina clean and helps prevent infection.

 

The term benign implies a mild and non-progressive disease. A tumor is an abnormal growth resulting from uncontrolled multiplication of cells, and serving no physiological function.

Most people have heard of mothers who have successfully had multiple pregnancies (twins or more babies). The media often carries articles on such families, and the story is usually one of joy, rather than heartache. Unfortunately, this rosy picture hides the reality for couples who suffer complications associated with multiple pregnancies.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a fairly common condition. The main symptoms include irregular or absent menstrual periods, reduced fertility,acne and abnormal hair distribution. Some women will be overweight and,others get depressed due to changes in their body habitus.

 

Many pregnancies are unplanned, and most couples do not seek pre-pregnancy advice. In an ideal situation, all pregnancies should be planned, with pre-conceptual advice being part of routine care.
