What does a gynecologist do?

High Risk Pregnancy

I have a high-risk pregnancy. What does that mean?

If your pregnancy is high-risk, it means you need extra care to help you have a healthy pregnancy and baby. If you’re being treated for a lifelong (chronic) condition, you may have known for a long time that becoming pregnant carries additional risks. Or you may find out you have a high-risk pregnancy because of a problem that develops for the first time during pregnancy.


What is Infertility?

Most people will have the strong desire to conceive a child at some point during their lifetime. Understanding what defines normal fertility is crucial to helping a person, or couple, know when it is time to seek help. Most couples (approximately 85%) will achieve pregnancy within one year of trying, with the greatest likelihood of conception occurring during the earlier months. Only an additional 7% of couples will conceive in the second year. So if after 1 year of trying, a woman fails to get pregnant, it is time for the couple to meet the specialist but it is definitely not the time to get depressed or unduly worried. with the right approach and guidance from your doctor, things will fall in place for most of the times.

Laparoscopic Surgery/Key Hole Surgery

Which infertile patients should have laparoscopy?

Generally, laparoscopy should be reserved for couples who have already completed a more basic infertility evaluation including assessing for ovulation, ovarian reserve , ultrasound and hysterosalpingogram for the female and semen analysis for the male. Some couples may elect to skip laparoscopy in favor of proceeding to other fertility treatments such as superovulation with fertility medications combined with intrauterine insemination or in vitro fertilization .There may be instances in which the fertility doctor may have a high suspicion for finding problems with laparoscopy.


What is Menopause?

Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. It’s diagnosed after you’ve gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Menopause can happen in your 40s or 50s, but the average age is 51. Menopause is a natural biological process. But the physical symptoms, such as hot flashes, and emotional symptoms of menopause may disrupt your sleep, lower your energy or affect emotional health. There are many effective treatments available, from lifestyle adjustments to nutritional supplements and hormone therapy.


How is PCOD diagnosed ?

Patients suffering from a polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) have multiple small cysts in their ovaries (the word poly means many) and normal menstrual cycle is disrupted. The ovary is enlarged and produces excessive amounts of androgen and estrogenic hormones. This excess, along with the absence of ovulation results in irregular unhealthy delayed cycles with reduced flow and problems like obesity, acne and excessive body hair mainly facial. 20% – 50% of cases can cause infertility.

Adolescent Gynecology

Why should Teens visit the Gynecologist?

A visit to the gynaecologist may seem overwhelming and scary to a young woman. However, Dr Yuvakshi Juneja has expertise in making young minds feel at ease. Girls should have their first gynecologic visit between ages 13-15 years. Having doctors and nurses who understand the needs of younger generations can make the difference in how successful a patient/physician relationship becomes. Although most young women don’t need to have a Pap test until they are sexually active, there are several reasons you should see a gynecologist before that.
