Talk to Ob Gyn and Gynecologists in Bangalore
Comprehensive Women Care Hospital – From A Girl to Granny
Experts recommend that teenage girls have their first visit to a gynaecologist between the ages of 13 to 15. This period marks many physical and emotional changes for every teen, and it’s normal to have questions and concerns about your body and your health at this time. We offer a safe and caring atmosphere with accurate and comprehensive health information. Being one of the best women care hospitals in Bangalore, we offer quality care for all women, including those in their teenage years, young mothers, and older women.
Early care ensures that you have a trusted source to turn to for information and care. If you have concerns regarding irregular periods, pelvic pain, sexually transmitted infections, birth control, pregnancy, or other issues, we are here. Some girls want their mothers to join them during the visit with the doctor, while others choose to come on their own. Both are fine and up to our patients entirely, but our health providers do recommend spending part of the visit one-on-one with our patients. The information discussed during this time is private and just between you and your doctor. You can schedule an appointment with our gynaecologists and obstetricians in Bangalore anytime, based on the availability of our doctors’ OP timings. We have our women care hospitals & clinics located in 5 areas of Bangalore such as Banaswadi, Kalyan Nagar, Banashankari, Hoskote and Hennur.
Our doctors offer additional training and focus on teen health issues. We are here to help navigate the teenage years.
Every woman experiences menopause differently. Most women enter perimenopause, the transitional years leading up to menopause, in their 40s. On average, women reach menopause, when the menstrual cycle stops permanently, around age 51.
You may experience uncomfortable symptoms, or you may notice differences in your body. No matter your experience, our experts are here to help you navigate this challenging (but often rewarding and liberating!) time in your life. We can help you:
- Deal with the physical and emotional changes associated with menopause.
- Decide if hormone therapy is right for you.
- Learn how to reduce your risk for heart disease, osteoporosis and other changes associated with menopause.
Medically, you are considered menopausal if it has been over 12 months since your last period. As menopause nears, the ovaries make less estrogen. One of the earliest and most common signs that menopause may be approaching is changing your menstrual periods. You may skip one or more periods. The amount of flow may become lighter or heavier. Bleeding may last a shorter or longer time than is usual for you.
Even though periods tend to be irregular at this time, you should be aware of bleeding that is not normal for you. This could be a sign of a problem. Talk to your health care provider if you:
- Notice a change in your monthly cycle.
- Have very heavy bleeding with clots.
- Have bleeding that lasts longer than normal.
- Bleed more often than every three weeks.
- Bleed after sex or between periods.
At some point, your ovaries stop making enough of the hormones needed to thicken the lining of your uterus. This is when your menstrual periods stop completely.
Menopause also can occur when your ovaries are surgically removed. This may trigger severe symptoms because your hormone levels decrease all at once.
Although removing the uterus (a hysterectomy) ends menstrual periods, it will not cause menopause unless your ovaries are also removed. If your ovaries remain after surgery, typically, you will go through menopause around the usual age.
What to expect during menopause or perimenopause:
- Hot Flashes
- Sleep Problems
- Vaginal and Urinary Tract Changes
- Bone and Other Body Changes
- Emotional Changes
- Decrease in libido
The importance of Good Nutrition:
Eating a balanced diet will help you stay healthy before, during and after menopause. It is important to eat various foods to make sure you get all the essential nutrients. Choose to incorporate a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet. Also, be sure to include enough calcium and Vitamin D in your diet to help maintain strong bones. Women aged 51 years and older need 1,200 mg of calcium per day. The National Institutes of Health recommends 1,500 mg of calcium per day for postmenopausal women who do not take hormone therapy and all women older than 65 years.
It can be hard to get enough calcium from eating dairy products and certain vegetables, so you should consider using calcium supplements. Ask your primary care provider about a supplement to slow bone loss and for guidance on how much to take. Calcium cannot be absorbed without vitamin D. Milk fortified with vitamin D is one of the best sources. Another is sunlight. You also can use vitamin D supplements to get the recommended daily amount of vitamin D. Your provider can help you determine how much to take.
Exercise is very important, especially as you age, as it can help you maintain a healthy weight, relieve stress, and even slow down bone loss.
The US Department of Health and Human Services recommends moderate aerobic activity five days per week and strength training exercises two days per week. Multiple studies have shown this level of exercise will help decrease obesity, depression, hypertension and diabetes. Try aerobic activities like walking, hiking, swimming or biking. When strength training, choose weights that challenge your muscles after 10-12 repetitions.
