Women’s health

Welcome to women’s health at ESNEFT

We offer clinics, treatment and surgery for a wide range of gynaecological problems that affect women:

  • Period (menstruation) problems
  • Menopause
  • Pelvic pain
  • Vaginal prolapse
  • Urine incontinence
  • Vulval conditions
  • Unplanned pregnancy

Your GP can refer you to gynaecology at ESNEFT.

Clinics are appointment-only.

When you see the doctor you will be asked to describe the problem for which you have been referred.

A vaginal and abdominal examination may be carried out to give more information about your gynaecological problem.

Any physical examinations are conducted with a chaperone present. You are welcome to bring a family member or friend to your appointment.

We may send you for more tests such as ultrasound scans or blood tests.

The doctor will explain your condition and the treatment options that are available.
