Some common Gynaecological emergencies that may be treated in the ER Department of Emergency Medicine at Sterling Hospitals Gurukul Ahmedabad include:
- Ectopic pregnancy: A pregnancy that develops outside the uterus, often in the fallopian tube. This can cause severe pain and bleeding and may require emergency surgery.
- Ovarian torsion: A condition in which the ovary twists on its blood supply, causing severe abdominal pain. This may require surgery to untwist the ovary and restore blood flow.
- Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID): An infection of the female reproductive organs that can lead to severe pain, fever, and infertility if left untreated. Treatment may involve antibiotics and supportive care.
- Vaginal bleeding: Heavy or prolonged vaginal bleeding, particularly after menopause or between periods, may indicate a serious underlying condition and may require further evaluation and treatment.
- Ruptured ovarian cyst: An ovarian cyst that ruptures, causing severe abdominal pain and sometimes heavy bleeding. Treatment may involve pain management and monitoring, or surgical intervention if the bleeding is severe.
In all cases, the medical team will work quickly to evaluate the patient, provide supportive care, and determine the appropriate course of treatment. Treatment may involve medications, surgery, or other interventions depending on the severity and underlying cause of the emergency.
