Menstrual Issues

Irregular periods, heavy bleeding, and period pains. Some women think excruciating periods are normal because that’s all they’ve experienced. It is not.

At Insync, we’ve found that menstrual pain tends to be trivialised by doctors, and as such, women find that they have no choice but to normalise these conditions. Proper medical checks can get to the root of the issue and give yourself some much-needed assurance. 

 

It takes an average of 5 years before a woman is properly diagnosed with endometriosis. If your period pains bother you, trust your gut. We are here to investigate and help.

Identify if you have endometriosis.

About 60% of women with painful periods have endometriosis. Unfortunately, this condition often goes undiagnosed or is dismissed.

When you have endometriosis, the lining of the uterus (known as the endometrium) that sheds during your period, flows in a reverse direction and deposits itself on the outside of the uterus, around the ovaries and small crevices of the pelvis like between your rectum and vagina.

During your period, these deposits break down and bleed, irritating the pelvis and causing painful excruciating cramps. Overtime, scarring and inflammation occur, cause pain that may last beyond your menstrual flow.

FAQ

Who is likely to suffer from endometriosis?

About 60% of women who suffer from severe period pain have endometriosis. The earlier your age at which you start menstruating, the higher your risk of endometriosis as well.

Can I take painkillers to manage period pain?

Yes, painkillers can provide temporary relief. However, if your period pains are persistent and recurrent, we recommend seeing a doctor to address the issue in a more effective manner through treating the root causes of the period pain.

 

How is endometriosis treated?

Hormone therapy such as Dienogest and the Mirena IUD has been very effective in controlling endometriosis. In fact, surgeries alone without hormone therapy have a 30% risk of recurrence of endometriosis.

How do I know if the endometriosis treatment is effective?

Effective treatment should shrink the endometriosis plugs and reduce inflammation caused by them. The medications used to manage endometriosis should also give you pain relief.

Do I really need an MRI test or key hole surgery to diagnose endometriosis?

If you have symptoms suggestive of endometriosis, it’s not necessary to confirm the diagnosis through MRI or key hole surgery. You can start with a trial of treatment with hormone pills like Dienogest to reduce the disease burden and inflammation.

If the treatment trial works, then it’s very likely that you have endometriosis.

Going to consult Dr Jess has gotta be one of the best decisions I've made in 2018. I'm always a little nervous when I visit a doctor or dentist but she puts me completely at ease. Like another reviewer put it, she truly engages with you and never makes you feel like your question is stupid (you know that feeling). I especially like how she's very upfront with the costs before prescribing or proceeding with anything. I've recommended her to my family and all my friends! Edit: Just wanted to add a shoutout to Dr Jess's team. Each of the ladies I've met in the last couple of years have been so welcoming and warm which calms my nerves while waiting to see Dr Jess or waiting for medication to be dispensed. I don't know why but appointment making can be quite an intimidating process for me but they've always been so kind and are always responsive.

Dr Jess is an amazing doctor with a beautiful heart. What I really love about her is that is super realistic. She does not promise rapid/fake results. She is very humble and I really like it that spent her time to talk and explain to me about my condition in detail. I have been to so many other doctors for the same. They will just talk briefly and try to push me to start the treament on the spot / nurses will start discussing on pricing.Wasted my time and money in the wrong clinic before. However, Dr Jess is just different.She is not greedy. Very helpful and high level of professionlism and empathy.And her staff Hani is super sweet too. Customer service top notch. Sometime I send message so late when i need something urgently. Hani will still reply to me patiently. I am so lucky I finally found the best doctor and her assitant for my lady needs :) . I only have one regret-I didnt find them earlier.

I am soooooo glad I went here to have my concernssorted. I have no words how comfortable I am after she had me checked up. Her hands are very light aswell. It's like having a class about our body parts. She explained my result that I had back in Bangkok than the doctor I had there. How I wish there is someone like her that will make sure all our questions and concerns are answered. She's the best of best. Highly recommend her. Price is reasonable too. Just thank you Dr.Jess and her assistant Aisyah. Have a wonderful day always.
