Common Conditions

Infertility: For women under the age of 35, infertility is defined as inability to get pregnant after a year of trying. There are different causes of infertility including endometriosis, anovulation, ovarian, tubal factors and male factors. Women over the age of 35 should seek help after 6 months of not being able to conceive.

Endometriosis: Endometriosis develops when endometrial-like cells similar to those lining the inside of the uterus begin growing in other areas or organs of the body. Most commonly it causes pelvic pain and infertility in women, but can also be a silent disease, therefore greatly under-diagnosed.

Fibroids: Uterine fibroid tumors are noncancerous growths of the uterus which may cause irregular and heavy bleeding, pain or pressure symptoms. They can also interfere with pregnancy depending on their location in the uterus.

Ovarian Cysts: Ovarian cysts are most often fluid-filled growths of the ovaries, which can cause pelvic pain or discomfort. Women with Polycystic Ovaries can have irregular periods due to lack of ovulation.

Pelvic Pain: Pelvic pain is a very common complaint among women of all ages. It is not normal for women to have painful menstruation or be suffering from chronic pelvic pain. Underlying causes may be endometriosis, adenomyosis, pelvic adhesions, infections or fibroids.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Many women develop prolapse of uterus and bladder into the vagina with loss of urine after menopause due to prior vaginal births and low levels of estrogen.
