Endometriosis

Endometriosis occurs when endometrial tissue (the lining of the uterus) grows in areas of the body outside the uterus.  

Fertility North is proud to be a specialist Endometriosis Treatment Centre. Our doctors specialise in its diagnosis and have many years of extensive experience in its treatment. 

Adenomyosis

Adenomyosis is a gynaecological disease, thought to be related to endometriosis.  It occurs when endometrial tissue (the tissue that lines the uterine cavity) grows in the uterine myometrium (the muscular layer of the uterus).

Treatment is recommended on an individual basis in accordance with the severity of symptoms and whether a patient is trying to conceive or their family is complete.

Cervical Screening & Management

A Cervical Screening Test (CST) aims to prevent cervical cancer. It involves analysing cells from the cervix (at the top of the vagina) for the presence of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which is responsible for the vast majority of cervical cancers.

Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery

A laparoscopy is a surgical procedure where a narrow, fibre optic tube is inserted through the skin of the abdomen through a pair of very small incisions to enable the specialist to see the abdominal and reproductive organs.

Uterine Prolapse

Uterine Prolapse describes the situation where the position of the uterus has shifted towards the vaginal opening. Left untreated the uterus eventually leaves the body entirely, and hangs within an inverted vagina.

The two most common causes are vaginal birth (causing damage) and menopause (causing weakening).

Fibroids

he term “Fibroid” is a common name derived from the medical term “Fibromyoma”. It describes a benign tumour of the smooth muscle wall of the uterus. There are genetic predispositions to developing fibroids, but precisely why some women get them, and others don’t is unknown.

Menopause

Menopause occurs when there are changes in reproductive hormone levels as the body begins to run out of eggs.  Menopause can occur as a result of the natural passage of time, but may also be induced by primary ovarian insufficiencycancer or surgery. In these instances, symptoms may be more sudden and severe and are more likely to require intervention. 

Contraception

Our team of friendly, discreet Specialist Gynaecologists are experts in conception and contraception, and will work with you to determine the contraceptive method that best suits your lifestyle, medical history and needs. 

Pelvic Pain

Different from menstrual pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP) is experienced by up to 20% of women. It is persistent pelvic pain felt deep in the pelvis between the top of the legs and the belly button. It often renders the sufferer unable to function normally in day-to-day life.

Reproductive Health

Good reproductive health is crucial for an individual’s general health and wellbeing. It is central to their ability to make choices and decisions about their lives, including when, or whether, to contemplate having children.
