Women’s Health from Teenage to Post Menopause

Dr Gupta GynaecologistMulti-lingual Dr Sunanda Gupta practices privately as a gynaecologist at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital, in Tettenhall. With almost 20 years as a consultant community gynaecologist, Dr Gupta has over 30 years of service in the NHS. Her impressive track record includes extensive experience and expertise in gynaecology, including contraceptive and reproductive health.

Qualifying in 1976, Dr Gupta possesses a dual certificate in Obstetrics & Gynaecology and in Community Gynaecology. In 1990 she qualified as a Member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College in 2002. In 2006, she attained Fellowship of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health. In addition to English, she also speaks Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi.

Clinically, Dr Gupta has a keen interest in menstrual and postmenopausal disorders and specialises in a range of gynaecological conditions, which span teenage years to post menopause. These include menstrual problems, premenstrual syndrome, polycystic ovarian disease, pelvic pain, fibroids, contraceptive problems, abnormal vaginal discharge, vulval lumps, bumps or growths, inability to have a baby and menopausal problems.

Dr Gupta explains, “Menstrual periods generally last for five to seven days and occur every 23-28 days. Specific gynaecological conditions related to periods, where you may wish to seek help from a gynaecologist, are when teenagers do not start their periods by the age of 18 (primary amenorrhoea), or if they suffer from acne or excessive hair growth, called hirsutism. Abnormal bleeding, such as when periods last more than seven days and occur more frequently than every 21 days, when a noticeable increase in blood loss is seen during periods called menorrhagia, when bleeding occurs between two periods called intermenstrual bleeding, when there is bleeding at or after sexual intercourse called postcoital bleeding and when periods occur less frequently for example every four months or six months, called oligo-amenorrhoea, or do not occur  at all, which is secondary amenorrhoea. Women may also benefit from seeing a gynaecologist in relation to bleeding problems with the contraceptive methods you use, whether implants, coils, pills or injections.

At the clinic appointment, I take a thorough history, then carry out general physical, abdominal and gynaecological examination to come to a working diagnosis, followed by full explanation of what is going on, the investigations and treatment modalities, be they medical or surgical. I like to give women all the options for treatment so that they are empowered to make an informed choice about treatment.”

To find out more, Dr Gupta will be giving a free talk on Menopausal and Period Problems at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital at 6.30pm on of Tuesday 23rd October. To reserve a place, please ring 01902 793269 or book online at www.nuffieldhealth.com/hospitals/wolverhampton/events
