A/Prof Fong graduated with the top medal in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and was awarded the Gold Medal in the Master’s Examination in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (NUS). In 2014, he led a team to transplant an ovarian tissue back into a patient with ovarian failure, which led to Asia’s first baby conceived naturally from implanted ovarian tissue. His expertise and key interests are in the treatment of complex gynaecological problems such as stage 3/4 endometriosis, difficult fibroids and ovarian cysts, congenital genital tract abnormalities, as well as fertility.
Many women experience pain during their periods. Most of the pain is a result of the process of the uterus contracting to release the menstrual blood.
However, if the pain you experience begins before the onset of bleeding and interferes with your daily activities, there may be an underlying condition other than the typical uterine cramping. Some of these symptoms might be related to endometriosis, fibroids, an ovarian cyst, which may make periods especially painful.
