Prenatal care should start at least three months before you conceive. This care helps decrease risks during pregnancy and increases the chance of a safe and healthy delivery. Regular prenatal visits can help your doctor monitor your pregnancy and identify any problems or complications before becoming severe. Mothers who lack prenatal care have three times more likely to experience low birth weight. Low weight birth poses a high risk of infant mortality.

Therefore, the obstetrician at Dr. Hassan Al-Abdulla Medical Center may request a series of medical examinations. Since the main symptom of infertility is not getting pregnant.

Female Infertility Treatment
Some fertility problems are more easily treated than others. In general, as a woman ages, especially after age 35, her chances of getting pregnant go down. But her risk of miscarriage goes up.Treatments for fertility problems in women depend on what may be keeping the woman from getting pregnant. Sometimes the cause isn’t known. The main symptom of infertility is not getting pregnant. There may be no other obvious symptoms. Sometimes, an infertile woman may have irregular or absent menstrual periods. Rarely, an infertile man may have some signs of hormonal problems, such as changes in hair growth or sexual function.
Gynecological Diseases Treatment
Gynecologic disorders are disorders that affect the female reproductive system. The most common symptoms of gynecologic disorders include pelvic pain, vaginal itching, vaginal discharge, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and breast pain and lumps. The significance of these symptoms often depends on the woman’s age because symptoms may be related to the hormonal changes that occur with aging. Hairiness (excess body hair) in women, called hirsutism (see Hairiness), is sometimes thought of as a gynecologic symptom because excess body hair is considered abnormal only in women. Also, it usually results from high levels of male hormones, which affect the female reproductive system.
4D Imaging Ultrasound
It’s natural to be really excited by the prospect of your first scan. But some mums find the standard 2D scans disappointing when all they see is a grey, blurry outline. This is because the scan sees right through your baby, so the photos show her internal organs. With 3D and 4D scans, you see your baby’s skin rather than her insides. You may see the shape of your baby’s mouth and nose, or be able to spot her yawning or sticking her tongue out. 3D and 4D scans may nonetheless provide more information about a known abnormality because these scans can show more detail from different angles. 3D scanning can also be useful to look at the heart and other internal organs. As a result, some fetal medicine units do use 3D scans, but only when they’re medically necessary.
Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer Detection
Breast cancer is now the most frequently diagnosed cancer as well as the leading cause of mortality from cancer in women worldwide. It accounts for 23% of the total cancer cases and 14% of deaths resulting from cancer in females 80% of the half a million cases of cervical cancer occurring annually. About 233,000 deaths result from cervical cancers. Population based screening programs in place in the developed nations have successfully controlled mortality from cervical cancer. We can prevent this statistics by detecting them at an early stage of development. A well-proven way to prevent cancer is to have testing (screening) to find pre-cancers before they can turn into invasive cancer.
Prenatal and Postpartum Care
Pregnancy care consists of prenatal (before birth) and postpartum (after birth) healthcare for expectant mothers.
Prenatal care helps decrease risks during pregnancy and increases the chance of a safe and healthy delivery. Regular prenatal visits can help your doctor monitor your pregnancy and identify any problems or complications before they become serious.
Babies born to mothers who lack prenatal care have triple the chance of being born at a low birth weight. Newborns with low birth weight are five times more likely to die than those whose mothers received prenatal care.
Prenatal care ideally starts at least three months before you begin trying to conceive.
This covers the routine postnatal care women and their babies should receive for 6–8 weeks after the birth. It includes advice given on breastfeeding, and the management of common and serious health problems in women and their babies after the birth.
