The purpose of early ultrasound is to confirm the pregnancy and its location. Evaluate the number of fetuses and estimate gestational age. It is desirable to have early ultrasound examination 6 to 8 (10) weeks after the first day of the last menstrual period (if you know it), because the embryo has then reached a size that makes it easier to see the heart rate and assess gestational age.
Women who do not get adequate amounts of folic acid (vitamin B9) in the diet are recommended to take 400 micrograms of folic acid daily for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy and preferably before pregnancy occurs. The average consumption of the B vitamin folate is less than the advice, especially among women and a quarter of women do not meet the need for folate from food alone. Folic acid in sufficient amount can reduce the risk of cleft palate and spinal defects in an embryo.
Even though IUD insertion is generally uneventful it can be good to take for example 400 mg of ibuprofen one hour before your appointment or other painkillers such as e.g. Paracetamol or Parkodein if you cannot tolerate ibuprofen. It can reduce the discomfort that some women experience during IUD insertion. It is recommended that IUD be inserted at the end of or just after menstruation because insertion can be easier and cause less discomfort. Most women can use IUD even though they have not given birth. We provide the IUD at the clinic.
Although removal of an IUD is usually uneventful, it can be good to take for example 400 mg of Ibuprofen one hour before your appointment or other painkillers such as e.g. Paracetamol or Parkodein if you cannot tolerate ibuprofen. It can reduce the discomfort that some women experinence when the IUD is removed.
Cervical cancer screening with cervical sampling is recommended every three years between the ages 23-65 years in asymptomatic women. Cervical sampling is not recommended during the menstrual period. Cancer screening with cervical sampling is one of the most important preventive measures available for women. Cervical cell changes (dysplasia) and cervical cancer are caused by Human Papilloma Viruses (HPV), further information on: http://www.cdc.gov/hpv/
