A non-stress test (NST) is a common prenatal test used to check on a baby's health in the womb.
A Non-Stress Test (NST) is a test for fetal wellbeing. It measures fetal heart rate and response to movement in the third trimester to ensure that the baby is doing well.
An IUCD or Intra-uterine Contraceptive Device or coil is a T-shaped implant impregnated with copper or hormones that is placed in the uterus (womb) to prevent pregnancy. This is a safe and effective non-permanent method of female contraception.
Obstetric ultrasound uses sound waves to produce pictures of a developing embryo or foetus within pregnant women, as well as the mother's uterus and ovaries. It does not use ionizing radiation and has no known harmful effects.
Pap Smear or Pap Test is a vaginal exam that screens for cervical cancer. This is done by taking a swab to collect cervical cells to be examined for abnormal growth and other indications of precancerous /cancerous cells. It’s a simple procedure that takes approximately 5 minutes.
This is a procedure that involves extracting a small piece of tissue from the cervix to facilitate lab testing for cervical cancer and precancerous conditions that could threaten the health of the patient in the future. Biopsies are largely pain-free procedures that do not require advanced recovery times.

Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. Hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus.
At one point, endoscopy during pregnancy was believed to endanger the foetus in the womb. Therefore it is generally discouraged endoscopy during pregnancy and, if absolutely necessary, recommended that procedures occur during the second trimester.
Also known as diagnostic laparoscopy, this is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen and reproductive organs. It's a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions.
A tremendously specialized medical field, genetics is about heredity and certain risk factors involved in the genes. Every child inherits genes from both of their biological parents and these genes in turn express specific traits.
Basically a prenatal test in which a sample of the chorionic villi is removed from the placenta for testing, Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) ing (CVS) is a prenatal test that is used to detect birth defects, genetic diseases, and other problems during pregnancy.

However, some women cannot handle menopause well because of a few irregularities in their menstrual cycle such as early menopause either as a result of a surgical intervention such as removal of…
Perimenopause is early menopause and can begin eight to 10 years before menopause sets in when the ovaries gradually produce less estrogen. It usually starts in a woman's 40s, but can start in the 30s as well. At this stage, many women can experience menopause symptoms in spite of still having menstrual cycles during this time, and can get pregnant.
Advanced medical technology has revolutionized the healthcare world by making surgeries easier to perform and more comfortable for patients. Cryosurgery is one of them. Also called cryotherapy, it is the use of extreme cold produced by liquid nitrogen or argon gas to destroy abnormal tissue.
Medical research confirms that 70-80 percent of women will develop uterine fibroids in their lifetime. Fibroids are benign growths of muscle cells and tissues and pose no risk of turning cancerous.

Abnormalities of the Vagina and Vulva
Premature Labour and Preterm Birth
Infections of the Reproductive Tract
Disorders of the Menstrual Cycle

A Cervical Biopsy involves the removal of tissue from the Cervix to rule out or confirm the presence of cancerous cells. Doctors usually recommend Cervical biopsies when they suspect abnormal cells.
Doctors see the Cervix and extract cells by inserting a speculum into the Vagina.
A Non-Stress Test checks the health of a fetus by placing a small non-invasive device on the mother's abdomen, which measures movements and sounds from within the Uterus. This information is sent to a monitor, which records it and sends it to a computer for analysis. The test does not cause any stress to the fetus or the mother.
USG scan is an ultrasound to create a picture of the fetus. The high-frequency sound waves create an image of the fetus and its surrounding organs by moving the probe or transducer, which emits these sound waves, over the mother's abdomen. The sound waves reflect different structures in the body, creating an image on a monitor.
A Pap Smear examines cervical cells to screen for changes that could indicate cancer. It is a standard screening test for the prevention of cervical cancer.
The process consists of sampling cells from the Cervix and examining them under a microscope.
HPV tests show infection with one or more types of HPV (Human Papillomavirus), a group of viruses passed from one person to another primarily through sexual contact. There are more than 100 different types of HPV.
People with an active infection of a high-risk type of HPV have a higher chance of developing cancer in the future than those who do not have an active infection. Less often, people with low-risk types of HPV can develop cancer too.
A Colposcopy uses a magnifying device to examine the Cervix and its surrounding immediate areas. It can help determine if there are any suspicious cells or changes in the cells of the Cervix. To know more visit our multi-specialty hospital in Kharadi, Pune.
Colposcopy results can help determine cervical cancer or another condition such as an infection, inflammation or pre-cancerous lesions.
Hysteroscopy examines the inside of a woman's Uterus by inserting a small device with a camera into the Vagina, which allows doctors to see the uterine cavity and any possible abnormalities.
Doctors recommend Hysteroscopy when a patient is experiencing menstrual irregularities, abdominal pain, or heavy bleeding.
Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) happens between the 10th and 13th weeks of pregnancy. It removes a small sample of placental tissue to diagnose genetic disorders and other conditions that affect fetuses.
CVS is a minimally invasive technique to identify genetic problems early in pregnancy. A needle goes through the abdomen into the Uterus, where it withdraws Chorionic Villi—tiny structures that form from the placenta and are responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients from mother to baby.
Follicular Imaging helps assist reproduction in monitoring the development of follicles and oocytes.
A transvaginal ultrasound visualises the ovaries during different stages of their development. Doctors scan the ovaries from the time of stimulation until the day when ovulation occurs.
This technique helps doctors determine whether enough eggs are available for retrieval.
An Anomaly Scan is a second-trimester screening to detect defects in the development of the baby's brain and other conditions.
During the scan, the ultrasound technician uses a wand-like device called a transducer to send sound waves through the abdomen to create images of the fetus on a computer screen.
An Anomaly Scan looks for abnormalities like missing organs or limbs or an abnormal amount of fluid surrounding the baby.
The Viability Scan relies on ultrasound technology to determine the viability of a pregnancy. This test usually happens during the first trimester of pregnancy. It helps doctors and parents decide on the continuation of the pregnancy by checking fetal growth, heartbeat, and movement in the mother's womb.
Doppler Studies are non-invasive ultrasound techniques to study blood flow, heart function, and other bodily functions.
They determine fetal health during pregnancy, as they can help detect abnormalities in the fetus's heart rate or blood flow. It can also monitor changes in the mother's blood pressure during pregnancy.
Doctors use an ultrasound machine to send sound waves through the patient's body and then measure how quickly those waves return after hitting different body parts (such as blood vessels). This information creates images of blood flow and other bodily functions that can help doctors diagnose conditions.
Fetal Echo Studies are ultrasounds used to evaluate fetal heart problems in the second trimester. It evaluates defects in the baby's heart, including holes in the heart, valves that do not close properly, or other problems.
Amniocentesis removes the amniotic fluid from the Uterus and tests it for genetic abnormalities. It diagnoses genetic disorders like Down syndrome or rules out chromosomal abnormalities.
Amniocentesis happens during the second trimester of pregnancy, usually between 14 and 18 weeks after conception. Doctors insert a needle into the Uterus through the woman's abdomen and remove a small amount of amniotic fluid. This fluid tests genetic abnormalities by examining chromosomes in fetal cells that are present in the sample.
IUCD Insertion is a procedure to insert a small Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (IUCD) into the Uterus. The IUCD is a small T-shaped piece of plastic that fits inside the Uterus and prevents pregnancy by releasing hormones and copper ions, which are toxic to sperm.
A Hysterectomy treats conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and fibroids by removing all or part of the Uterus.
The most common type is a total abdominal hysterectomy, which involves removing the entire Uterus, Cervix and surrounding tissue. Other types include
Subtotal Abdominal Hysterectomy: Removes only part of the Uterus
Vaginal Hysterectomy: Removes only part of the Uterus through an incision in the Vagina.
Total Vaginal Hysterectomy: Removes only part of the Uterus through an incision in the Vagina.
Sterilisation is a permanent form of contraception for women, which involves blocking or cutting off the fallopian tubes, blocking the movement of eggs from the ovaries to the Uterus. It is important to remember that these options are not always reversible. The patient should also consider whether they are ready for long-term contraception or if they might want to have children in the future. Consult with our experts to know more about the procedure.
A Cerclage places sutures, or stitches, around the opening of the Cervix to prevent premature birth. It helps women who have had one or more miscarriages.
The surgeon uses Cerclage to keep the Cervix from opening too early and releasing the baby too soon. The stitches are removed after about three months when it is clear that there has been no miscarriage or premature labour.
Puberty involves several changes to the body and mind. In girls, puberty can be hard to navigate as it involves many physical, emotional, and psychological changes. The problems include:
Delayed onset of puberty beyond 13 years
Precocious or early onset before eight years
Contra-sexual pubertal development of male characteristics in females
Treatment depends on the underlying cause and may involve surgery or medication that suppresses the production of sex hormones.
PCOD (Polycystic Ovary Disease) is a common endocrine disorder that affects women of reproductive age. It results from an imbalance in the sex hormone estrogen, which leads to the growth of small cysts on the ovaries.
The most common symptoms of PCOD include irregular periods, excess body hair, acne and weight gain.
Doctors manage PCOD through medication and lifestyle changes, as untreated PCOD can lead to infertility, diabetes and heart disease.
Hormone Therapy is an option for women experiencing menopause-related symptoms. It uses synthetic hormones to replace the estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone naturally produced by the body during a woman's reproductive years. Visit our gynaecology hospital in Kharadi to know more about the treatment. Contact us if you have any queries
The hormone therapy reduces the severity of menopausal symptoms and prevents related complications.
The complications of Menopause include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, night sweats, mood swings, fatigue, low energy levels, difficulty sleeping at night and depression.
Cryosurgery kills suspicious cells in a woman's Cervix using liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide. It treats cervical cancer and pre-cancerous lesions.
Cryosurgery works by freezing the Cervix so that it kills any suspicious cells in the area. This freezing damages the cell's DNA and makes it unable to reproduce. The surgeon removes the frozen tissue from the body through surgery.

A gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in women's reproductive health. Obstetricians care for women during their pregnancy and just after the baby is born. They also deliver babies. An ob-gyn is trained to do all of these things.
Many factors can affect the timing of puberty, including genetics, environment, and nutrition. Some girls may also experience precocious puberty (the early onset of secondary sex characteristics) due to abnormal hormone production or other medical conditions. The early onset is treated with hormone medications to suppress the pituitary gland and prevent further hormone production. The treatment may also include other medications to control symptoms, such as acne or excess hair growth. Consult with a team of experts at the best gynaecology hospital in Kharadi Pune to know more about it.
PCOD is a common hormonal condition that causes symptoms like irregular periods and pain. While PCOD does not restrict pregnancy, it can make it more challenging to get pregnant. The finest gynecologist at the top gynecology hospital in Kharadi Pune helps women with the right treatment line to manage PCOD and plan a family.
The first step is to diagnose the infertility cause. Several factors can affect fertility, including age, weight, and lifestyle choices.
