Protecting And Preserving Womanhood...The Gift Of New Life

The human body’s reproductive system is created not just for the function of procreation, but plays a major role in the formation of physical and emotional bonds between the players whose instinctive responses lead to deposition of millions of sperm within the vagina.

 

The sperm swim their way through the cervix which is the neck of the womb, into the uterus to the fallopian tubes which takes them towards the ovaries from which eggs are released on a monthly basis. Fertilisation usually occurs in the fallopian tubes and the fertilised ovum travels back through the tubes to the uterus, where it implants. Healthy patent tubes are necessary for this to successfully take place.

The ovum develops into a baby over nine months. At an appointed time, the uterus begins to contract, gradually pulling open the cervix to let the baby out, pushing its head through a complex four inch manoeuvre through the vagina, which represents labour and eventual delivery. It is interesting to note that the full complement of a woman’s eggs is in the ovary when they are born. At puberty, the monthly cycle of egg maturation starts and continues till menopause, when menses and the reproductive cycle ceases.

Keeping this system functioning efficiently and effectively is dependent on a healthy diet, healthy sexual practices and avoiding environmental toxins that cause endocrine disruption, which may affect the bodies ‘hormonal system. Untreated or partially treated infections in any part of this system can lead to adhesions, and cause infertility.

The task of our obstetricians and gynaecologists is to help our patients maintain these tracts in a healthy functional state, so that reproduction is simple and straightforward. They also ensuring regular screening to avoid the common cancers that women suffer

from and to monitor our patients through the phases of pregnancy till the gift of the womb is birthed.
