What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis (say "en-doh-mee-tree-OH-sus") is a problem many women have during their childbearing years. It means that a type of tissue that lines your uterus is also growing outside your uterus. This does not always cause symptoms. And it usually is not dangerous. But it can cause pain and other problems.

Gynecological vaccines for girls (and boys)

Disease prevention is a strategy that aims to provide interventions that limit the chances of specific diseases ever occurring. Some gynecological problems can be prevented with lifestyle modifications or screening tests. Vaccines come in handy in disease prevention, and are now available in gynecology as a strategy against the human papilloma virus (HPV).

Female genital cosmetic surgery: gimmick stuff?

 

There has been a rising trend in surgical requests for designer vaginas, more akin to cosmetic breast surgery. This is more so in the West, but such requests are not uncommon in Kenyan Gynecology clinics. Vaginoplasty refers to cosmetic vaginal surgery, usually aiming to tighten up a vagina that has become loose with child-bearing or age. Vaginoplasty is commonly combined with Labiaplasty, which aims to change the appearance of the vaginal lips (labia) to a cosmetically appealing look.

Coping with labor and delivery

I need your help. I am 2 months pregnant and I have been vomiting excessively. I can’t retain any fluids or feeds. What should I do please?

Nausea and vomiting is very common in early pregnancy. For some, it is the initial indication of an unplanned pregnancy. It’s usually caused by rising levels of a particular hormone produced in early pregnancy. Luckily, the hormone levels tend to taper off as the pregnancy advances. For the majority, the nausea and vomiting tends to resolve by the end of the first 3 months.
