Women’s health is affected by physical & socio-economic factors which could lead to severe health complications. Proper nutrition, hormonal imbalance, lifestyle changes & menopausal transition are often neglected by women in today’s hectic lifestyle. Thus, emphasis on women’s health is the need of the hour.

FOGSI is a professional organization representing practitioners of obstetrics and gynecology in India.

Those hormones are required for keeping cardiovascular health, bone health, as well as psychosomatic health in place.
Now there are various diseases like dysfunctional uterine bleeding, hormonal causes for bleeding, structural diseases like polyp which has alternative approaches like conservative management, medical management. endometrial ablation, Mirena insertion, hormonal and non-hormonal pills and lifestyle modification.
Hysterectomy causes deprivation of a women to feel reproductively complete mentally as well as physically as after hysterectomy even if we preserve the ovaries still the blood supply to ovaries becomes compromised for which various side effects like reduced bone mineral density, cardiovascular side effects, early menopausal symptoms comes into play. So always if hysterectomy is performed for reasons other than cancer ovary preservation of ovaries to keep up the hormone levels is necessary also if hysterectomy is performed proper follow becomes necessary. Conserving uterus and not doing a hysterectomy is the need of the hour to regain women’s mental and physical health” says Dr. Jayasree Sundar, Director OBGY, Madhukar Rainbow Children’s Hospital. We are also going to discuss various aspects of organ and blood donation with included social activities like Tree plantation, Walkathon & Zumbathon will also be a part of this campaign.
