Due to anatomical and physiological reasons, women are more prone to lower urinary tract and genital infections, but lower abdominal cramps are also common. Exploration or rather prevention of the causes behind these problems (chronic inflammation, cysts, etc.), regular gynecological examination is important even in case of no symptoms.
A part of malignant diseases diagnosed with the help of screening tests can be well treated today, and a significant percentage of other gynecological problems can be solved by a smaller surgical intervention. Outpatient surgeries need only a few hours of observation, and patients can go home after 24 hours following one-day surgical interventions.
Gynecologic examinations may extend beyond laboratory, ultrasound and other basic examinations to the screening of sexually transmitted diseases (e.g. chlamydia, HPV, etc.) or cervical cancer, various hormone tests or even to hysteroscopy and laparoscopy.
Outpatient interventions may include removal of genital warts and moles, removal of viral wart (condyloma) from outer genitals, histological sampling from the cervix (conisation), endoscopic examination of the fallopian tubes’ patency or tubal catheterization and blowing.
One-day gynecologic surgeries include removal of cysts and polyps (from vagina, cervix or uterus) or even various plastic surgical solutions (vaginal, perineal and vulvar reconstruction, correction of the hymen and other genital plasties).
Certain diagnostic, abdominal and plastic interventions can be solved within the framework of gynecologic surgeries needing several days of hospital care (e.g. laparoscopy, sterilization, removal of the uterus and ovarium, vaginal wall reconstruction).
