Gynaecological and fertility problems can affect both men and women at any point in their lives. These issues can be very personal and usually require immediate and effective treatment.
If this is not provided, then it can result in poor general gynaecological health and problems with fertility, pregnancy and childbirth.
Unfortunately, there are many possible instances where negligent treatment may give rise to a claim for medical negligence. However, some of the more common complications may result in the following:
- Infection leading to loss of fertility
- General infertility
- Poor prognosis following a diagnosis of cervical or testicular cancer
- Uterine, bladder or bowel perforations following surgery
- Psychological trauma
