Nothing is stressed more for women that the importance of going to the gynaecologist to take proper care of themselves and their reproductive health. The female body has truly the most complex reproductive system ever, which requires us to take the best possible care of it and to constantly and vigilantly monitor for any occurrences out of the ordinary to ensure that everything is functioning normally. Gynaecologists can not only monitor the body for any changes, but can also help the women understand their body better. With a system so complex, it is only too often that we may find ourselves experiencing symptoms that we feel are out of the ordinary or we may find ourselves wondering about the way our body functions. Due to the immensely personal nature of these questions, women can often be reluctant to share them even with trusted family members or friends. Furthermore, family and friends can only answer based on their own personal experiences and thus we can be led astray. While the internet can provide a cover of anonymity, everyone’s body is different and facts that hold true for some other woman may not for us. In such situations, it is important to head to a professional who can provide us with the right answers for our body and can help us understand ourselves better.
A commonly held misconception is that female health issues are isolated only to sexual health, without any effect on any other aspect of our being. This, however, could not be further from the truth. There are many issues with the female reproductive system that can affect the overall physical and even mental health of the individual. Studies have shown that psychological reactions occur in tandem with changes in the reproductive system, such as changes in mood when approaching the menstrual period, and after and during childbirth to name a few. Women suffering from hormonal imbalances can suffer from severe anxiety and depression, as is the case with some women suffering from poly-cystic ovaries. Discussing issues pertaining to mental and reproductive health can be a huge difficulty for women without a comforting yet professional ear to listen to all their problems with empathy, and to provide them with solutions.
Gynaecologists can be the trained yet comforting presence that every woman needs to discuss her health concerns with.
