A menstrual problem is when a woman’s monthly bleeding is irregular, too light, too heavy, too painful, excessive bleeding, causing anaemia or when menses cease altogether. Menstrual problems are common; most settle over time or can be treated with simple medication. Normally a period occurs approximately every 28 days, and is a normal part of the monthly menstrual cycle. Heavy bleeding can occur with or without other symptoms like period pain. It is a common problem that can lead to anaemia. Abnormal, heavy and or painful periods can be caused by problems within the uterus, ovaries or hormone production.
Cancer Screening and Management
Gynecologic cancers attack a woman's reproductive organs, including the cervix, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina and vulva. At the clinic, we recognize time as a major factor in our patients' care and understand the fear and uncertainity a diagnosis of cancer bring. Through our specialized services and supportive care, we work with our patients to determine the course of treatment or starting a customized treatment plan, for instance, if the patient has other conditions. We advocate a partnership approach between the patient and medical team to collectively evaluate the various treatment options and determine the most appropriate plan of care. Together, we consider the nature of the problem to be treated, the patient's general medical condition and the patient's goals and expectations.
