Antenatal services

Description:If you prefer to see a Obstetrician, please ask for an appointment. Clinica will ensure - when possible - that all requests are met promptly.

Contraception

Description:Contraception is used to prevent pregnancy. There are several different types of contraception available and people choose different methods to meet their individual needs. How effective any contraception is depends on how carefully you used the method you have chosen.

Gynaecologist

Description:At Clinica, we offer both general consultations and consultations with specialist practitioners. Our private clinic in a central London location provides a professional, yet friendly atmosphere, with helpful and experienced staff available to perform private consultations.

Infertility

Description:Infertility is usually defined as involuntary failure to conceive after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse. In its wider sense, infertility refers to couples who are having difficulty achieving parenthood and would, therefore, include pregnancy problems such as recurrent miscarriage. Between 80-90% of couples who will achieve a pregnancy without assistance, succeed within the first year of unprotected intercourse and about 95% within two years.

Minimal access surgery

Description:This may be due to giving birth to one or several children. The vaginal muscles and ligaments become weakened and start to sag. This leaves the bladder, bowel and womb (uterus) so unsupported that they can literally begin to push through the vaginal wall. This leads to problems with the body’s ability to pass urine and stools.

Pelvic floor repair

Description:It is not uncommon to experience discomfort in the pelvis at various stages of the menstrual cycle. Ovulation (release of the egg) may be associated with discomfort usually to one side or the other and may last a day or two. Some women may have central, low discomfort before or during the period. More severe pain at these times, or pain associated with intercourse may be as a result of gynaecological problems such as infection, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, adhesions, fibroids, bladder irritation or polyps and this does require investigation.

Sexual Health

Description:Being healthy is about feeling good physically, mentally and emotionally. Being sexually healthy means that we avoid infections, illnesses and take responsibility to ensure that we protect ourselves and others, emotionally and physically.

Treatment of endometriosis

Description:The lining of the womb is called endometrium; if endometrial-type tissue is found outside the womb it is called endometriosis. Endometriosis is most commonly found in the pelvis notably on the ovaries and behind the uterus (Figure 23.2). It can involve the bowel and urinary tract.
