Happiness begins by enjoying complete health. Gynaecology is a medical speciality that is dedicated to the care of the female reproductive system, for the diagnosis and treatment of female diseases. At Clínica Medrano you will find a wide range of services in gynecology so you can opt for a full evaluation.
At Clínica Medrano we like to insist on the importance of having an annual gynaecology check-up to enjoy a complete health.
Attending the gynaecologist once a year, we can prevent the risk of venereal diseases, as well as early diagnosis in cases of breast, ovarian, vulvar or endometrial cancer, before the symptoms occur.
A gynaecological examination consists of an abdominal and pelvic exam with ultrasound and a bimanual examination to explore the uterus and ovaries. In addition, a cytology is performed in order to obtain information about the hormonal status, the possible existence of vaginal infections or precancerous lesions in the cervix.
Contraceptive methods are medication or devices used to prevent pregnancy. We help you choose the option that best suits your needs.
Barrier methods of contraception: These methods consist in placing a barrier that blocks the sperm, avoiding pregnancy and the transmission of STDs, such as the male condom, female condom or diaphragm.
Hormonal contraceptive methods: They must be prescribed by a specialist doctor. Hormonal contraceptive methods are the pill, the mini-Pill, the contraceptive patch, the injection or the transvaginal ring.
Long-acting or reversible contraceptive methods: Like intrauterine devices (IUDs) or hormonal implants. They are perfect for women who do not want to be mothers in the short term.
Surgical methods: They are contraceptive methods that prevent the release of ovules (tubal ligation) or sperm (vasectomy) preventing pregnancy permanently.
Natural or rhythm methods: Consists of avoiding having relations on fertile days. They are not very reliable methods.
SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES
STDs are a group of infectious and contagious clinical diseases that are transmitted from person to person through sexual contact and are caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.
They can show themselves in many different ways, that’s why it is important to go to a specialist’s office when you experience one of the following symptoms:
- Discomfort when urinating
- Changes in normal flow (amount, consistency, colour or smell
- Pain, itching or irritation in the anogenital area (both at rest and during and after having sex)
- Injuries such as ulcers, redness, and warts
