Genital Diseases, Female

Publication Title: 
Postgraduate Medicine

The woman past 65 years of age is as much in need of periodic gynecologic examinations and the ancillary tests used to diagnose early genital cancer as her premenopausal counterpart. Many gynecologic ills peculiar to the geriatric patient result from the tissue shrinkage that follows menopausal loss of estrogen secretion. Some of the resulting distress can be relieved by local estrogen or androgen therapy. A number of minor vulvar and vaginal disorders may appear with advancing age, often causing the patient discomfort and worry until she is reassured that they are benign.

Since the basic problem in the use of hypnosis in physiopathological obstetric and gynaecological conditions is the choice of the right method for the right indications, the symptoms and clinical conditions which may benefit from this treatment are discussed. The following gynaecological indications are suggested: dysmenorrhoea and algomenorrhoea; hypogastric plexalgia; frigidity; dyspareunia and vaginismus; psychogenetic amenorrhoea; postoperative psychoses and depressions; gynaecological somatisations of psychotic states.
