Are you wondering to know about pelvic pain and ovarian cancer?

Pelvic pain and Ovarian Cancer

Sofat Infertility & Women Care Centre: Many women still struggle to talk about vaginal issues. Research suggests that most of the women find it very difficult to discuss their private health and they prefer to stay in silence and way for too long to see the doctor.

This is the reason, problems like endometriosis take around 7 to 10 years to diagnose properly. By doing this, the women can experience different health issues which can also make it difficult to conceive naturally. So, we always suggest our patients seek medical help from the fertility doctor at the IVF centre if they are not getting pregnant naturally. Waiting too long is not an option, instead, you need to be proactive.
