If you are a woman, there is no denial in the fact that you have a variety of doctors you can see for your healthcare, but do you know which one you really need? Is it an obstetrician, gynaecologist, or just a primary care physician? When it comes to the point of women's reproductive health, often there is a sense of confusion that prevails. Many people think that gynaecologists and obstetricians are the same thing, but in reality, both are different.  

What is a Gynaecologist & Obstetrician? What does Dr. Elsa Menezes Specialize in?

The services offered by Dr. Elsa Menezes 

Depending on the age and other specific needs of your body, there are times when you need to choose or see a gynaecologist or obstetrician. In this situation, finding the right healthcare provider is key. At New Concept Clinic, Dr. Elsa, our Trained Obstetrician and Gynaecologist in Dubai offers full-service medical care for all your sexual and reproductive health care needs. The most common and best-provided services offered by Dr. Elsa Menezes are: 

  1. Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a prevalent gynaecological condition that affects women of reproductive age. It happens when uterine tissues begin to develop on the surfaces of other organs in the pelvis.
  2. Menopause: Menopause is an inevitable stage in a woman's life. Its indications and symptoms might be upsetting, but it is critical to understand your body and acquire coping mechanisms. There are several alternatives for properly managing your distress, and our Dr. Elsa will be the best person to take you through them.
  3. Contraception: The individual's age, health, frequency of sexual activity, number of sexual partners, future pregnancy, desire to have children in the future, and specific medical issues all influence the method of contraception chosen. As a result, always consult your doctor before deciding on a form of birth control.
  4. Pre-pregnancy/pregnancy care: Pregnancy care (antenatal care) is the care a woman receives when pregnant. Pregnancy care should be started as soon as a pregnancy is detected. Prenatal care is vital for both the mother's and the fetus's health.
  5. Labor and childbirth: As you prepare to give birth, you're going to experience a wide range of emotions. It's normal to be enthusiastic and nervous at the same time. Discussing the signs and symptoms with your doctor will help you understand what to anticipate.
  6. Postpartum care: The postpartum phase encompasses many physical and mental changes, as well as adjusting to these changes as a new mother. Caring for their babies is a learning experience for parents. After you are discharged from the hospital, it is critical that you take care of your body as it goes through several physiological changes and returns to its pre-pregnancy state.
