Let’s Talk Menstruation

Periods are a natural process experienced by half the world’s population. But they don’t always happen smoothly. Most menstruating women face a set of problems – some are common, some individual-based, which need consultation from a qualified and experienced gynecologist. The CK Birla Hospital provides professional and satisfactory treatment for a range of gynecological conditions, backed by comprehensive and accurate diagnosis to support your treatment and recovery.

You should visit our hospital in Gurgaon if you experience:

  • Bleeding or spotting between periods
  • Bleeding or spotting after sex
  • Heavy bleeding during your period
  • Menstrual cycles that are longer than 38 days or shorter than 24 days
  • “Irregular” periods in which cycle length varies by more than 7–9 days
  • Bleeding after menopause

To help ease period cramps, you can try the following after consultation from our expert gynecologist in gurgaon:

  • Take NSAIDS (pain killers) as prescribed by your doctor
  • Exercise
  • Place a heating pad, heat wrap, or other source of heat on your abdomen or lower back.
  • Certain alternative treatments may help like Vitamin B1 or magnesium supplements or Acupuncture

Who needs cervical cancer vaccine?

Girls and boys should get the HPV vaccine as a series of shots. Vaccination works best when it is done before a person is sexually active and exposed to HPV, but it still can reduce the risk of getting HPV if given after a person has become sexually active. The ideal age for HPV vaccination is age 11 years or 12 years, but it can be given starting at age 9 years and through age 26 years.
For those aged 9–14 years, two shots of vaccine are recommended. The second shot should be given 6–12 months after the first one. For those aged 15 years through 26 years, three shots of vaccine are recommended.

How often do I need to have cervical cancer screening?

Pap smear, also called a Pap test, is a screening procedure for cervical cancer.

  • Teenagers need not get a Pap test
  • Women aged 21–29 years should have a Pap test alone every 3 years. HPV testing is not recommended.
  • Women aged 30–65 years should have a Pap test and an HPV test (co-testing) every 5 years (preferred). It is also acceptable to get a Pap test done every 3 years.
