Embrace knowledge, empower yourself, and prioritize your well-being. Let’s turn these challenges into opportunities for growth and understanding together. Book a consultation today!

Fibroids

What it is

Fibroids, also known as uterine fibroids or leiomyomas, are benign growths that form in or around your womb, the uterus.

Just like the remarkable diversity in every woman, these fibroids can also vary significantly in size. They could be as tiny as a pea or grow as large as a melon.

Many women may have them and not even know it. Not every woman experiences symptoms. However, for those who do, the symptoms can range from heavy or painful periods, discomfort in the lower back, frequent urges to urinate, and complications during pregnancy.

How treatment works

There are several treatment options available depending on your age, general health, the size and location of your fibroids, whether you’re pregnant, and if you have symptoms. If you have no symptoms, you may not need treatment. In cases where symptoms are mild, medications to target symptoms like heavy menstrual bleeding or pelvic pressure can be used.

In more severe cases, there are surgical options available such as a myomectomy, which is the removal of the fibroids while leaving the uterus intact, or a hysterectomy, which involves the removal of the entire uterus. There are also non-surgical treatments like Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) which works by blocking the blood supply to the fibroid, causing it to shrink.

Irregular Bleeding

What it is

Irregular bleeding, medically known as metrorrhagia, is a common health concern that many women encounter.

It refers to any vaginal bleeding that occurs outside of a regular menstrual period. This can mean bleeding between periods, after sexual intercourse, after menopause, or even periods that are heavier or last longer than usual.

There could be several reasons behind irregular bleeding. It could be due to hormonal imbalances, stress, certain medications, polyps or fibroids in the uterus, or more serious conditions like endometriosis or cancer.

How treatment works

At His&HerDoc, we believe in a personalized approach to healthcare. The treatment for irregular bleeding can vary based on its cause, your age, your overall health, and whether you plan to have children. Sometimes, simple lifestyle changes or medication can help regulate your cycle. In other cases, surgical procedures might be necessary.

Lichen Sclerosus

What it is

Lichen sclerosus is a skin condition that typically affects the genital and anal areas but can occur on any part of the body.

It’s characterized by white, shiny, thin patches of skin that can be firm or slightly wrinkled. This condition can cause discomfort, itching, and even pain. Although anyone can get lichen sclerosus, postmenopausal women are most at risk. The exact cause of this condition isn’t known, but it may be related to an overactive immune system or hormonal imbalances.

How treatment works

While lichen sclerosus can’t be cured, its symptoms can be managed effectively. Applying a high-potency topical corticosteroid, such as clobetasol propionate, is considered the gold standard treatment. This can help reduce inflammation, itching, and the development of scar tissue. For some, a medicated ointment might be enough to return the skin to its usual color and texture.

In addition to medication, daily gentle washing of the affected area and application of petroleum jelly can help maintain skin health and comfort. Remember, each person is unique; what works best will depend on your specific symptoms and overall health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical Issues

Certain lifestyle changes may help manage the symptoms of fibroids. This includes maintaining a balanced diet, regular exercise, and stress management practices. However, it’s important to remember that while these changes can help manage symptoms, they may not eliminate fibroids. It’s always best to discuss your symptoms with our team at His&HerDoc so we can create a personalized treatment plan for you.

Irregular bleeding can include any deviation from your typical menstrual cycle, such as heavy or light bleeding, missed periods, spotting between periods, or bleeding after menopause.
