A few months ago I had a miscarriage that was treated with some tablets. I subsequently had an infection. Does this have implications on my long term health? And could it lead to infertility?

 

Pregnancy is a natural phenomenon. About 80% of pregnancies are usually uncomplicated, while the other 20% may encounter serious problems requiring special attention. But there are so many aches and pains that arise during pregnancy, sometimes making it difficult for couples to decide when it is necessary to see their Obstetrician or midwife.

Suffering a miscarriage

Unwanted pregnancy loss, commonly referred to as miscarriage, is quite devastating. Couples go through distressing emotions after a miscarriage, often craving for another pregnancy as part of the healing process.

Breast lumps are fairly common in women of reproductive age. The immediate worry is cancer if a breast lump is noted. But luckily, over 90 percent of breast lumps in women between the ages of 20 and 50 years are not cancerous (referred to as benign). However, any breast lump warrants further medical evaluation.

 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.
