Painless Delivery

Pregnancy is a dream come true of all couples. The first time mothers are filled with apprehension and innumerable questions. They get their queries solved by consulting their elders and peers and now newsgroups. They develop misconceptions and fears regarding pregnancy and labor.
The perception of pain during labor and delivery varies between individuals. Specially, the first-time mothers need a proper antenatal counselling regarding good nutritious diet, antenatal exercises and physiology of labor pains. Here we shall only be dealing with labor & delivery.
Epidural anaesthesia is an advance in pain management during labor, which ensures that a pregnant woman has a comfortable labor. It is a regional anaesthesia in which an anaesthetic drug is injected near the spinal cord in the spinal canal.

Advantages
»  Almost complete relief from pain with the patient being mobile
»  No postpartum headache as in spinal anaesthesia
»  Mother is conscious and alert throughout the labor
»  An instrumental delivery can be performed under the same anaesthesia, if need arises
»  If the patient has to be taken for caesarean section, the effect can be topped up through the epidural catheter.


Sonography Centre

Diagnostic medical sonography, or simply sonography, is one of the many technologies that doctors use to diagnose disease, illnesses and other medical problems. Technicians manipulate machines that use sound waves to take pictures that are known as sonograms.

A sonogram can show doctors what is going on inside the body. This diagnostic tool is one of the easiest and safest ways to diagnose medical problems. Sonograms are also used to track the development of unborn babies.

Although many people think that doctors are the ones who operate sonography machines, the truth is that this task is always completed by individuals who have completed degree programs in Sonography or Ultrasound Technology.

All advanced Gynaec Laparoscopic Surgeries

Gynaecology is the clinical speciality caring for problems associated with the female genital tract. Obstetrics, the management of pregnancy and childbirth by doctors, and gynaecology was initially a branch of surgery becoming a speciality in its own right in the 1920's. A significant change in philosophy with regard to training for the aspiring obstetrician and gynaecologist arose in the 1970s. Until then, most gynaecologists underwent a general surgical training before specialising. A shift towards medical treatment and an ever increasing breadth to the subject have encouraged direct entry into obstetrics and gynaecology.

Gynaecological problems are extremely common. The following are just a few of the more frequent gynaecological questions that women often ask themselves and their professional advisors.

Infertility Management

Treatments for fertility problems in women depend on what may be keeping the woman from getting pregnant. Sometimes the cause isn't known.

Problems with ovulating. Treatment may include taking medicine, such as:
»   Clomiphene. It stimulates your ovaries to release eggs.
»   Metformin. It's used to treat polycystic ovary syndrome.

Unexplained infertility. If your doctor can't find out why you and your partner haven't been able to get pregnant, treatment may include:
»   Clomiphene.
»   Hormone injections.
»   Insemination.

Blocked or damaged tubes. If your fallopian tubes are blocked, treatment may include tubal surgery.

Endometriosis: If mild to moderate endometriosis seems to be the main reason for your infertility, treatment may include laparoscopic surgery to remove endometrial tissue growth. This treatment may not be an option if you have severe endometriosis. For more information, see the topic Endometriosis.


IUI Laboratory

IUI involves a laboratory procedure to separate fast-moving sperm from more sluggish or non-moving sperm. It can be performed with your partner's sperm or donor sperm (known as donor insemination).

You may be offered IUI if:
»  you are using donated sperm in your treatment (donor insemination)
»  you are unable (or would find it very difficult) to have vaginal intercourse, for example because of a physical disability or psychosexual problem
»  you have a condition that means you need specific help to conceive (for example, if a man who is HIV positive and you have undergone sperm washing to reduce the risk of passing on the disease to your partner and potential child).

In the past IUI was offered if you had unexplained infertility, mild endometriosis or when a male partner had mild fertility problems.

Instead, if this applies to you, you are advised to try to conceive for a total of two years before IVF will be considered (this can include up to one year before your fertility investigations).
