Female Disorders

Two ovaries, two fallopian tubes, a uterus (womb), a cervix, a vagina, and a vulva make up the female reproductive system (external genitalia). The uterus is connected to each ovary through a fallopian tube, which is located above the cervix and vagina. The ovaries are made up of fluid-filled sacs called follicles that house the immature eggs. Every month from puberty to the menopause, hormones are required for the eggs to develop and expand. If sperm are available, the egg is often fertilised in the uterus where the fallopian tubes convey the eggs. The growing embryo will pass via the fallopian tube and into the uterus, where it will implant (adhere to the lining of)  and our srvieces disorders headaches fear palpitation and body pain, post menopausal depression anxiety and age related nemory loss.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is a common condition that can affect a woman’s menstrual cycle, fertility and appearance. The cause is unknown but the balance of hormones produced by the ovaries is affected, and in some women, the testosterone level is slightly higher than normal. Women with PCOS tend to have larger ovaries, filled with multiple, fluid filled follicles (cysts), but although one in every five women will have polycystic ovaries, only one in twenty of these will have the syndrome. It affects women of childbearing age and can run in families. PCOS also affects long-term health.
