A consultation with one of our experienced gynaecologists is an important first step in diagnosing and treating female reproductive system health problems.
What does a gynaecologist consultation involve?
A consultation with one of our gynaecologists is a chance for patients to ask questions about a female reproductive system health concern. It’s also an opportunity for the gynaecologist to talk to you in detail about your symptoms, pain, medical history, and other relevant factors.
What does a gynaecologist specialize in?
Gynaecologists are specialists in diagnosing and treating disorders and diseases relating to the female reproductive system. They are highly experienced, qualified specialists who are dedicated to your needs.
What does the gynaecologist want to discuss?
During the consultation, the gynaecologist may want to discuss the following:
Your medical history and lifestyle
The gynaecologist will want to discuss your complete medical history. This may include:
- Any medications you take or have taken
- Any chronic or recurring health issues
- Your general family medical history, including any history of similar problems
- Your lifestyle, such as whether or not you smoke and how active you are, as well as information relevant to your problem, including sports and fitness activities and what your work involves
The consultation lets the gynaecologist fully understand the extent of your health problem. This information will help them recommend the most appropriate way forward. It may include:
- Your main symptoms and where they are
- How long you have been experiencing these symptoms, pains and how bad they are
- Any triggers, such as activities or body movements, that make symptoms worse
Why consult with a gynaecologist?
Consulting with a gynaecologist lets you better understand the nature of your health problems and what could be causing them, as well as what treatment might be required.
Gynaecologist consultation outcomes
The surgeon can offer a diagnosis during the consultation or refer you for further tests or scans. They can also recommend a course of treatment and recommended next steps, which may include a particular surgery.
Preparing for a gynaecologist consultation
Before the consultation, we recommend that you gather together the information the gynaecologist might need, think about what you want to get out of the consultation, and prepare any questions.
The gynaecologist will want to collect basic personal information, including name, age, and health care number, as well as the name of your family doctor if you have one, or any other health professionals you are working with.
Test and scan results
If you have had any scans, such as a CT Scan or MRI scan, the surgeon will want to review these if possible.
