Hair Grow

What is normal hair grow for women and what is hirsutism? What is considered normal for a woman and what is considered hirsute depends on factors such as culture and race. The extent of normal hair growth varies between individuals, families and races, being more extensive in the Mediterranean and some Asian subcontinent populations. History knows several cases of excess hair grow in pretty famous women. Visiting art galleries you can see portraits of women from 15-18 centuries who were well known because of their hirsutism. For example, famous Spanish painter Jusepe de Ribera in 1631 AD introduced his painting “Magdalena Ventura with Her Husband and Son” which clearly demonstrated Magdalena’s excess hair grow (hirsutism) but fortunately her reproduction system was not damaged and she delivered a son and she was able to breastfeed her child.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) also known as Stein-Leventhal syndrome is a complicated endocrine disorder associated with a long-term lack of ovulation (anovulation) and an excess of androgens (male hormones). PCOS affects an estimated 6-10% of all women and most don't even know they have it. Formation of eight or more follicular cysts of 10 mm or smaller in the ovaries is very typical for PCOS. The process related to the anovulation - ovary's failure to release an egg (ovum). The many cysts in a polycystic ovary are follicles that have matured but, due to abnormal hormone levels, were never released. In a normal ovary, a single egg develops and is released each month. PCOS is one of the most frequent causes of infertility. Read more

What we know about abortion? The “abortion” is the termination of unwanted pregnancy. It can be spontaneous (also called miscarriage) or induced. Abortion can be induced surgically (e.g., by vacuum aspiration, or dilatation and curettage) or medically (e.g., using an antiprogestogen and/or prostaglandins), safely or unsafely. What we know about unwanted and unplanned pregnancies? Read more about it. The method for inducing abortion will depend upon the duration of the pregnancy, the training and skills of the provider, the facilities available and the preference of the woman. In most cases, the gestation can be determined reliably from the date of the last menstrual period and the findings on pelvic examination. Ultrasound investigation is necessary only when there is clinical doubt about the period of gestation or suspicion of ectopic pregnancy.

Pelvic Exam

Pelvic exam is an examination that is performed by your doctor or a nurse to make sure that your reproductive organs are healthy. During pelvic exam the following reproductive organs are usually observed: vagina, cervix, uterus, ovaries and tubes. Main reasons of the Pelvic Exam: 1. Medical staff check if your pelvic organs (vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries) are normal and healthy; 2. They can detect infections (STIs) that can cause vaginal discharge, pelvic pain or infertility.

Pap smear

“Pap test” and “Pap smear” are the same thing – it is a test that involves collecting cells from cervix and then looking at them through a microscope to make sure they are normal and healthy. It is sometimes called a “smear” because the cells from the cervix are “smeared” onto a microscope slide. Pelvic Exam is a little different – it refers to the entire exam of your reproductive organs, part of which is the collection of cells for the Pap test. Some people think that a Pap test is a screening test for all sexually transmitted diseases, this is not true. But during Pelvic Exam doctor or nurse can take additional tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). You also can request STI tests if you have any concerns and/or doubts. It is a right time to ask for HIV test also (if needed). For “Pap smear” cells should be taken and/or "smeared" from the cervix and examined under the special microscope to detect diseases or other problems. Read more
