What are the Gynaecological Issues during Pregnancy?

Given below are few gynaecological problems that are commonly experienced by moms-to-be. If you are experiencing any of the below-given issues, we suggest a consult with your obstetrician & gynaecologist at the earliest.


Bleeding during pregnancy can be due to major or minor changes in the body. The cause can be anything like implantation bleeding, cervical bleeding or an infection. To know more, please consult our specialist. Our team of experts will study your case carefully and give you the best multi-disciplinary treatment available.

Ectopic Pregnancy

Normally, the fertilized egg implants in the uterus for further growth and development. In a few cases, the implantation happens in the fallopian tube. This can result in the rupturing of the fallopian tube causing bleeding. Ectopic pregnancy is not an ordinary case therefore, it should not be ignored.


Miscarriage is when the embryo dies inside the uterus. It generally happens in the first three months of pregnancy. It is characterised by cramping and bleeding.

Placental Abruption

In this case, the placenta gets detached from the uterine wall during pregnancy. It can also happen during the delivery. Placenta is an organ that supplies blood (oxygen & nutrients) to the growing foetus inside.A placental abruption is a severe complication if it’s not detected early enough.

Placenta Previa

It is a condition where the placenta entirely or partially blocks the baby’s way to the cervix. This happens when the placenta lies low. This issue generally evolves as the due date approaches You might need to have a caesarean delivery in this case.

Major Infections

Certain severe infections like the sexually transmitted infections (Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea), TB, HIV, or hepatitis causes a major threat for you and the baby. Therefore, it is important to take screening and treatment for these infections and vaccinations seriously when you are carrying a child.

Minor Infections

Diseases such as thrush or bacterial vaginosis or flu is not serious but should be controlled at the earliest.

Molar Pregnancy

Usually, the fertilised egg or the embryo implants itself in the uterine wall and starts developing but in a few cases, the foetus does not develop properly. Instead, a clump of abnormal cells can be seen growing there though an ultrasound. This can give a positive pregnancy test and sometimes result in slight bleeding.

Vaginal Irritation

Every mother-to-be is going through enormous bodily changes. These changes can be seen through a large quantity of vaginal discharge which can cause irritation to the vagina. Please avoid using care products without consulting your healthcare specialist because certain products can also irritate the vagina.
