Gynaecological problems like anaemia and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are one of the most common endocrine disorders. Approximately 30-40 per cent of teenagers visiting us suffer from PCOS, which often affects younger women. While the major fear is that it can lead to infertility, it can also become life-threatening as it leads to an increase in incidence of obesity. In the Yuva clinic, the gynaecologists aim to concentrate on lifestyle, diet, contraception and menstruation related problems and cancer vaccines. This empowers women to handle their health by detecting problems early and maintaining good health. An annual gynaecological exam is a health screening women should receive once a year that checks for gynaecological (women's reproductive organs) related problems such as cervical dysplasia, menstrual disorders, breast health and so on. This is a must for women over the age of 18, or who are sexually active.
