Silent Women Awake! Avail Easy Solutions To Intimate Issues

There are over a billion post menopausal women in the world today, and sadly around 1/6th of them are in India. One of the factors for this is that the average age of menopause of Indian women (46.5 years) is much less than their counterparts in advanced countries (51-55 years).

This, and many other gynaecological issues and remedies, including in the area of functional gynaecology and intimate aesthetic gynaecology, were discussed in a two-day International interdisciplinary conference Cosgynae-23 held in Chandigarh on July 29-30.

This information was shared with media persons during a briefing about the deliberations midway through the concluding day of the conference, on Sunday, by a panel of well known doctors from the field of obstetrics & gynaecology and functional and aesthetic gynaecology led by Dr Preeti Jindal, Organising Chairman of the conference.

More than 70 medical experts from across India, and a few from abroad, attended the conference organised jointly by the Indian Society of Aesthetic and Regenerative Gynaecology (INSARG), Mohali Obstetrics & Gynaecology Society & The Touch Clinic.

Latest developments in the field of women’s health, including gynaecological issues, anti-ageing, post-menopausal health, infertility and functional & intimate aesthetic gynaecology were discussed during the two-day conference.

Among the key speakers was Dr Ayman El-Attar, world renowned aesthetic physician and surgeon, who is also President & Founder of the American Aesthetic Association.

The medical experts highlighted that women, especially in developing countries, for various reasons, tend to hide their intimate issues and prefer to suffer silently, rather than sharing it with family members and consulting medical experts.

Among these intimate issues is painful menstruation, excess white vaginal discharge, involuntary urinary leakage, absence of periods, PCOS, infertility, menopause, pain during sex and post pregnancy stretch marks. Due to some of these issues women are hesitant to venture out of their homes, fearing embarrassment in public.

These women are silent sufferers for no reason since, due to rapid advancement made by medical science, most of these intimate gynaecological issues are easily treatable with modern machines without having to resort to surgery, the experts asserted.

Leading gynae and aesthetic gynae experts from India and abroad briefing media persons about the deliberations held during the two-day Cosgynae-23 conference held in Chandigarh on July 29-30.

Apart from these, intimate aesthetic gynaecology issues like vaginal laxity are coming to the fore. The enlargement and looseness in the vagina, due to age and other factors, inhibit normal activities of women like discomfort while doing fitness activities and while wearing clothes, and satisfaction to both sexual partners.

In this context, the experts dwelled on the topic of regenerating the functions of a woman’s genitalia through stem cell and other therapies and surgical procedures like vaginal tightening.

A topic of serious concern discussed during the conference was the high prevalence of male and female infertility especially in India, with as many as 15% couples in the country not being able to have children by indulging in normal sexual activity.

The experts pointed out that while reasons for this are many, the key reason is the sharp decline in the quantity and quality of male sperm, as also primary ovarian insufficiency among females, which happens when ovaries stop functioning at an age earlier than normal and do not produce typical amounts of the hormone ‘estrogen’ or release eggs regularly.

Among other factors, late marriages or delayed decision to bear child, the environment one lives in, overuse of mobile phone and intake of steroid infused protein powders taken while gymming, also play a role.

The experts shared that while most of the infertility issues are curable, and the success rate of various treatment modalities is high, there are other practical options available to such couples like IVF and adoption of a child/orphan.

Another remedy is Fertility Preservation, a process of saving or protecting eggs, sperm, or reproductive tissue so that a person can use them to have biological children in the future.

Evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) & automation in embryology, anti-ageing therapies with stem cell & micro needling platelet rich plasma (PRP), laser, and radio-frequency were among the other topics taken up for discussion.

Apart from Dr Ayman El-Attar and Dr Preeti Jindal, other prominent speakers in the conference were Prof Doaa M. Saleh, President of International Association of Aesthetic and Urogynecologists (IAAUG); Dr Alexander Bader, President-Founder, European Society of Aesthetic Gynecology (ESAG); Dr Judy Wei, Medical Director, Wei Aesthetic Institute; Dr Ragini Agrawal, President of INSARG, one of the organizers; Dr Hrishikesh Pai, Dr Sharon Li, Dr Jaideep Malhotra, Dr Prerna Keshan, Dr Keshav Malhotra and Dr Prabhu Mishra.  by APR Media House is an enjoyable digital reading startup, which keeps you abreast of the latest meaningful happenings of interest to large sections of folks in Chandigarh tricity, and expats from the region.
