Many gynaecology symptoms can be eased or eliminated using evidence-based treatment and by working closely with a specialist gynaecologist, who has experience in treating your symptoms.

Diagnosis will help to put your mind at ease and you can feel reassured that specialist help is available.

Tests to help diagnose a gynaecology condition may include, but are not limited to:

A colposcope, which is a thin tube with a bright light and camera, is used to view the cervix and the vagina.

A cystoscopy, uses an instrument to view the urinary tract, including the urethra and the bladder. It is used to diagnose urinary tract issues, that may include infection, bleeding or early signs of cancer.

A cervical biopsy removes tissue from the cervix that can be sent to the lab to be tested for early signs of cervical cancer. This typically follows abnormal smear test results.

An endometrial biopsy removes small tissue samples from the endometrium, the lining of the uterus. This can be tested for abnormalities.

A hysteroscopy uses a hysteroscope, a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera, to investigate the inside of the cervix.

An ultrasound uses sound waves to create images of your internal organs, in this case your pelvic area.

This is a safe, painless test that uses sound waves to create images of your uterus.

Treatments may include, but are not limited to:

  • Coil fitting services – Mirena IUS / IUCD insertion or removal
  • Endometrial ablation – used to reduce heavy menstruation
  • Hysteroscopy – for endometrial polyps
  • Uterine artery embolisation – for fibroids
  • Laparascopic Myomectomy – removal of fibroids
