DELAYING TREATMENT FOR GYN CONDITIONS PUTS WOMEN’S REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AT RISK

In the United States, more than half of women are unclear about GYN conditions and the surgical procedures to treat them, leaving many women at the mercy of misinformation, and out-of-date practices that can actually worsen conditions.

“Understanding GYN conditions and their treatments is essential for women to be able to make decisions about their care,” said Paul MacKoul, MD. “This large gap in knowledge can lead women to ignore common symptoms like pelvic pain and heavy bleeding which aren’t normal.”

Fear of the unknown can also be a barrier to treatment, and as conditions worsen, the harder they can be to treat with conservative methods.

“Many of the patients who come to see us have delayed treatment out of fear or other doctors telling them to watch and wait,” said Natalya Danilyants, MD. “Irreversible damage can be done to the uterus by large fibroids or extensive endometriosis.
