Gynecology is the medical practice that focuses on the health of the female reproductive system, including the vagina, uterus, and ovaries. Doctors who specialize in this field are called gynecologists. They deal with a range of conditions, such as:

  • Issues relating to menstruation, menopause, pregnancy, and fertility
  • Family planning, including sterilization, contraception, and pregnancy termination
  • Urinary and fecal incontinence
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Problems with tissue that support the pelvic organs, including muscles and ligaments
  • Benign conditions of the reproductive tract, such as fibroids, breast disorders, ovarian cysts, as well as vulvar and vaginal ulcers
  • Premalignant conditions, such as cervical dysplasia and endometrial hyperplasia
  • Cancers of the breasts and reproductive tract, as well as pregnancy-related tumors
  • Endometriosis, which is a chronic condition affecting the reproductive system
  • Congenital abnormalities of the female reproductive tract
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Emergency care relating to gynecology
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Sexuality, including health issues that relates to same-sex relationships.

Gynecologists are trained to carry out certain diagnostic and surgical procedures, including:

  • Pap smear tests
  • Colposcopy
  • Ultrasound scanning
  • Endometrial biopsy
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Dilation and curettage
  • Oophorectomy
  • Tubal ligation
  • Exploratory laparotomy
  • Appendectomy
  • Surgical treatments for urinary incontinence, such as cystoscopy and sub-urethral slings
  • Surgical treatments for pelvic organ prolapse, such as rectocele and cystocele
  • Cervical excision procedures, such as cryosurgery.

How Long Should I Stay in Beirut?

Your length of stay varies depending on the procedure you underwent. In general, you should be able to leave the hospital or clinic on the same day for diagnostic procedures, and stay in Beirut for around 2 to 7 days to wait for the results. For surgical procedures, you may need to stay in the hospital for about 2 to 5 days and stay in Beirut for 7 to 14 days. You will attend scheduled checkups where your gynecologist checks your condition and, if necessary, remove any stitches.

What's the Expected Recovery Time?

After diagnostic procedures, you may be advised to rest for the remainder of the day before resuming your normal activities, including work the next day. After a surgical procedure, you may need to wait around four to six weeks until you return to work and do strenuous activities.

What Aftercare is Required?

You will have to adopt healthy lifestyle habits, such as eating a healthy diet and exercise regularly (as recommended by your doctor), to maintain your health and prevent any issues in the future. After surgery for a serious illness, you may feel very emotional and it is recommended that you seek support if this happens. You also need to attend regular checkups, typically once a year.

What's the Success Rate?

The field of gynecology continues to advance each year and gynecologists now have more information and a deeper understanding of the female reproductive system. This means that the success rate is now higher than it used to be. However, all procedures carry some risks. In gynecology procedures, the risks include infection, tearing or damage to the cervix, pelvic inflammatory disease, damage to nearby organs, chronic pain, and vaginal prolapse.

Are there Alternatives?

Seeing a gynecologist is crucial if you experience any problems with your reproductive system. Therefore, there is no alternative to seeing a gynecologist. If your conditions are found to be caused by other diseases unrelated to the reproductive system, your gynecologist will refer you or work together with the relevant specialist.
