Common Conditions

Menstrual issues encompass a range of conditions, including irregular periods, heavy or prolonged bleeding (menorrhagia), painful periods (dysmenorrhea), and absent periods (amenorrhea). Proper diagnosis can help identify underlying causes such as hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, or uterine fibroids. Diagnostic tools like pelvic examinations, ultrasound imaging, hormone level testing, and sometimes minimally invasive procedures like hysteroscopy can aid in identifying and understanding these conditions.

Benefits and Potential Outcomes

Effectively managing menstrual issues can bring several benefits to women’s health and well-being. Treatment options such as hormonal therapies, lifestyle modifications, and minimally invasive procedures can alleviate symptoms, regulate menstrual cycles, reduce pain, and improve overall quality of life. The potential outcomes include improved reproductive health, enhanced emotional well-being, and the ability to engage in daily activities without disruption.

Dr. AlShahrour may recommend diagnostic tests, including ultrasound or hormonal assessments, to identify the underlying cause of your menstrual issues.

The specific procedure for managing menstrual issues depends on the underlying condition.

The procedure will be tailored to your individual needs and preferences, and Dr. AlShahrour will guide you through the process.

After:

After addressing menstrual issues, you may experience improvements in your menstrual cycle, reduced pain, or other symptom relief.
