Gynecology and Obstetrics Services
In developing countries like India, maternal mortality ratio is still very high. Different socio demographic factors are responsible besides the medical factors for this high ratio. Government of India has taken many steps for the improvement of health of pregnant and nursing women and women in reproductive age group. Early age of marriage among women, early age of pregnancy, high birth rates, and less spacing between two deliveries are some social factors which cause increase in maternal mortality ratio. Beside these, high rate of malnutrition among women is also considered to be a social problem. On the other hand, medical conditions, like ante-partum hemorrhage, post-partum hemorrhage, anemia, eclampsia, ectopic pregnancy, rupture uterus also form a significant proportion of maternal mortality—but most of these are preventable.

Our physicians provide a much-needed service to teenagers by counseling them regarding sexuality. When the patient is confronted with a problem such as a need for contraception or an unwanted pregnancy, our physicians present all the options available and leave the final choice up to the patient..
Premarital counseling is a type of therapy that helps couples prepare for marriage. Premarital counseling can help ensure that the partners have a strong, healthy relationship — giving them a better chance for a stable and satisfying marriage. Premarital counseling can also help identifying weaknesses that could become bigger problems during marriage.
Antenatal Check Up
Antenatal care is designed to check the woman’s health and look for anything that could affect the growing baby. At each visit, the pregnant woman will have a chance to discuss any questions or concerns.
The urine, blood pressure and weight gain will be checked. Your doctor will also examine the woman’s abdomen to ascertain the position and size of the baby.
The assessment also involves the following blood tests :
• A full blood count to exclude anemia (low blood count which leaves you tired and less able to cope if you lose too much blood during or after the birth) and Thalassaemia.
• Blood grouping in the event a blood transfusion is required.
• Hepatitis and syphilis screening.
• Rubella antibody screening (optional) to establish a history of exposure to this infection.
• An HIV screening as the implications on your baby may be significant should these infections be present.
There are so many different types of contraception (almost 15 types) available that patients should be able to find the right method for them. Our physicians are well trained to advice patients as to what is the best method of contraception for them.
Copper T Insertion
Copper T is a very effective method of contraception. Its success rate in preventing pregnancy is high. It is inserted high in the uterus by a trained physician, and is effective for about 3 to 5 years. It does not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases.
A Pap smear (also known as the Pap test) is a medical procedure in which a sample of cells from a woman’s cervix. (the end of the uterus that extends into the vagina) is collected and spread (smeared) on a microscope slide. The cells are examined under a microscope in order to look for pre-malignant or malignant changes.
In the vast majority of cases, a Pap test does identify minor cellular abnormalities before they have had a chance to become malignant and at a point when the condition is most easily treatable.
Prevention of Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Sexually transmitted diseases are related to sex as per the name signifies. But they are not uncommon even in those in monogamy relation. Vaccines mostly against HPV viruses help in prevention of it.
