General gynecological examination
It is based on the application of all women to a gynecologist at least once a year. It is carried out through pelvic examination, gynecologic ultrasound and cervical smear test. It is possible to diagnose cervical cancer in advance through this test.
Suspicious lesions can be identified with Pap smear screening test, and further examinations are planned for the patient. When the cervical cancer has clinical findings, it may be too late. For this reason, every woman should have a routine gynecologic examination once a year and should take this test even if they do not have any complaint.
Pap-smear test is carried out in the examination room by the gynecologist and lasts for a couple of minutes. The cervical cells are taken using a special brush and are sent to the pathology laboratory for examination. The patient does not feel pain during this procedure.
The most important symptom of cervical cancer is vaginal bleeding, especially bleeding after sexual intercourse. Another symptom is vaginal discharge in color of broth. All kinds of persistent vaginal discharge should be examined. When these symptoms have occurred, it may be late. In other words, cancer cells may have spread to adjacent and distant organs. As mentioned before, the Pap-smear test should be made when there is no symptom. The Pap smear test that should be taken once a year enables the early diagnosis and treatment of cervical cancer and saves life.
Family planning methods
First of all, the patients are informed about the methods, and thus, and the method is jointly considered by the couple and the physician. Since every method cannot be appropriate for each patient, the methods are assessed and selected for each patient. Correct information is provided about modern methods and birth-control pills. Intrauterine devices can also be placed. Tubal ligation is a permanent method and it can be carried out with laparoscopic approach, if requested.
A detailed interview is made with the applicant couples before pregnancy and all kinds of risk factors (consanguineous marriage, a baby with health problems in previous births, age of the expectant mother, blood incompatibilities, and previous diseases of the expectant mother such as diabetes, thyroid and high blood-pressure) are evaluated by taking the familial history. The necessary examinations are made and information is given.
These examinations start with the diagnosis of pregnancy and they are made once in 4 weeks during the first 32 weeks, once in 2 weeks after the 32nd week and once a week after the 36th week. The weight and the blood pressure of the expectant mother is evaluated in each medical visit. The baby is evaluated through ultrasound. The necessary tests and examinations are carried out depending on the infant development weeks.
Week 11-14 Screening Test: The risk of Down’s syndrome and similar diseases is calculated through this new test made in between these weeks. After the nuchal translucency of the baby is determined with ultrasound, PAPP-A and BHCG are analyzed on maternal blood specimen.
2nd level ultrasound and Doppler: The detailed examination of the baby is made at 19 to 23 weeks of the gestational age by determining the sufficiency of the blood circulation between the baby and the mother. The tests and follow-ups continue as the birth time comes close. After the Week 32, the baby’s heart beats and the uterine contractions are monitored through NST (non stress test).
The patients are informed about the period starting with the 1 year after menstrual cycles cease and also about the pre-menopause, which is characterized with menstrual irregularities. Pelvic examination and ultrasonographic evaluation, cervical smear test, breast examination and mammographic follow-up and also examinations related to osteoporosis (complaints due to bone loss) are carried out.
Childbirth (delivery) is considered as the most important milestone of a woman. It brings a physical and vital change. Our pregnant patients can choose the birth method with epidural anesthesia in our hospital.
