Several important benefits of seeing a Gynaecologist include:
Your gynaecology consultation is a great opportunity to ask questions and receive expert advice about your sexual health. Each visit will give you the confidence and knowledge you need to better manage your health.
We recommend that females who are sexually active and/or over the age of 21 visit a gynaecologist for an annual check-up. Additionally, we strongly advise you visit a gynaecologist if you experience any of the following:
In the UK women are encouraged to have their first cervical smear at the age of 25. (If you are under 25 small abnormalities in the cells can be a normal occurrence.) However, we are happy to provide a private smear test in London to women of any age.
You should be screened for cervical cancer once every 2-3 years.
The human papilloma virus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted infection that gives rise to cervical cancer. Although abnormal cells do not always indicate cancer, this may be a sign that cancer may develop. Treatments are easier and more successful if given before this process happens.
An abnormal cervical smear will identify infection, abnormal cells, or cervical cancer. The extent of the follow-up investigations required will depend on your age and severity of the abnormality.
Follow-up investigations will tell your Harley Street gynaecologist if the abnormality is likely to develop into cervical cancer. You may need treatment to destroy the abnormal cells and decrease your cancer risk.
Please follow your gynaecologist’s advice on how often to have a pap smear. Regular testing is important to identify any abnormalities early before they develop into cancer.
After 35 years of age, a woman’s fertility begins to decline for a number of reasons:
Being overweight can also interfere with the ability to conceive. Women with PCOS may increase their chances of a successful pregnancy by losing weight.
Call our surgery as soon as possible for advice on emergency contraception. You may be offered the emergency contraceptive pill or be fitted with the copper coil.
You will need to wait at least three weeks for pregnancy to be confirmed by a urine test.
It takes at least two weeks after sex for gonorrhoea and chlamydia to be confirmed on a test. However, if you have symptoms, please book a consultation with your gynaecologist in Harley Street right away. HIV can be tested for one month following sex, but you should then be tested again after 12 weeks.
Bacteria, parasites, or viruses cause STDs. Antibiotics can be used to treat and cure a number of STDs, including:
STDs with no current cure include:
Some STDs will, over time, clear up without treatment. Most strains of HPV, hepatitis A, and acute strains of hepatitis B & C are some of these.
It’s important to be tested for STDs, so that if you need to, you can begin treatment.
