Treatments, operations and tests

Birth or delivery of a baby is a wonderful and natural event. The delivery could be natural, through the birth canal, or via a C–section. Whilst a natural birth is encouraged, there are circumstances which may affect the mother's as well as the baby's well-being, and these call for a C-section in a hospital setting. However, a baby's delivery can also take place in the relaxed environment of your home with your chosen midwife in attendance or in a hospital setting and be consultant led.
Cervical cancer have rarely, if ever, been screened. These women may not obtain pelvic examinations partly because of the cost. The use of liquid-based cytologic screening adds upfront costs, and, therefore, could lead to a paradoxical increase in mortality from this disease if this cost prevented more women from being screened. For example, most women in the United States who die from cervical cancer have rarely, if ever, been screened.
Dilation (or dilatation) and curettage (D&C) refers to the dilation (widening/opening) of the cervix and surgical removal of part of the lining of the uterus and/or contents of the uterus by scraping and scooping (curettage). It is a therapeutic gynecological procedure as well as a rarely used method of first trimester abortion.D&C normally is referred to a procedure involving a curette, also called sharp curettage.[1] However, some sources use the term D&C to refer more generally to any procedure that involves the processes of dilation and removal of uterine contents.
Laparoscopy is an operation performed in the abdomen or pelvis through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.5 cm) with the aid of a camera. It can either be used to inspect and diagnose a condition or to perform surgery. There are two types of laparoscope: (1) a telescopic rod lens system, that is usually connected to a video camera (single chip or three chip), or (2) a digital laparoscope where a miniature digital video camera is placed at the end of the laparoscope, eliminating the rod lens system.

A hysteroscope, is a thin tube with a built in camera that is inserted through the cervix into the uterus. A gynaecologist uses a hysteroscope for diagnosing and treating problems that cause infertility, miscarriages, and abnormal menstrual bleeding. The procedure is normally done as an outpatient procedure.
