About “DR. ANJANA VENUGOPALAN”
Dr. Anjana Venugopalan is a leading Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who specialises in high-risk obstetrics and reproductive medicine. She has experience in diagnosis and treatment of wide range of gynaecological disorders – from more common ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids to advanced fertility complications and complicated pregnancies. She is also trained in gynaecological laparoscopy, which involves a keyhole surgery to look inside the abdomen, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. This may be used as a step in diagnosis and/or treatment of gynaecological disorders.
Dr. Anjana’s consultation gamut includes women’s health issues such as amenorrhoea (absence of monthly menstrual periods), PCOD (polycystic ovarian disorder), PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and dysmenorrhoea (painful menstrual periods). Often widely confused and used interchangeably, PCOD and PCOS actually differ from each other in their characteristics, impact on a woman’s body, and treatment methods. While both are related to the ovaries and involve hormonal imbalance, PCOD is less severe compared to PCOS, rarely causes infertility, and is commonly occurring. PCOD can mostly be controlled with right guidance from a skilled gynaecologist like Dr. Anjana and by following appropriate diet and exercise. PCOS, however, is a metabolic disorder and can lead to difficulties in conceiving. For such cases, Dr. Anjana can offer timely diagnosis and suggest appropriate steps to facilitate normal life and successful conception.
