Overview

A/Prof Fong started his journey in Medicine when he was awarded the President’s Scholarship to study medicine at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He 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). He also achieved the Board of Examiner’s Prize (Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists) and a letter of commendation from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists leading to his postgraduate degrees.

In 2002, A/Prof Fong won a Fellowship programme in Minimally Invasive Gynaecologic Surgery and was the lead-surgeon in laparoscopic surgery in NUH for more than 10 years. Under his leadership, many firsts were achieved in the region. In 2008, he performed the first robotic surgery in NUH and the team went on to perform the first robotic surgery for gynaecological cancer in the region. In 2009, A/Prof Fong was the first to perform single incision surgery in the region and later went on to perform the first multidisciplinary single incision surgery in the region. In a breakthrough in 2014, A/Prof Fong led the team in transplanting 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. His other areas of interest include pelvic floor reconstruction and the use of microsurgical techniques for tubal re-anastomosis or fertility enhancing surgery.

Fluent in English, Mandarin, Bahasa, Cantonese, and Hokkien, A/Prof Fong sees local and international patients from all walks of life.

ASK DR FONG YOKE FAI: MENSTRUAL PROBLEMS

Ask Dr Fong Yoke Fai: Menstrual Problems undefined

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.

Join Dr Fong Yoke Fai as he hosts a QnA session where he answers all your questions on menstrual problems.

Dear Andreana Some women experience mid cycle spotting for a couple of days and this might actually be a sign of ovulation. This is because just before ovulation occurs, there is a little dip in the level of hormones produced by the ovary. This results in slight spotting before t...
Consult Doctor
Dear Tryphenalee There could be several possibilities for your symptoms. If you are fully breast feeding your child, then there is a possibility of a low female hormonal (estrogen) environment - due to the fact that the ovary is less likely to ovulate. The lower oestrogen levels ...
Consult Doctor
Dear Jael Usually some variation in the volume of flow and presence of clots do occur from cycle to cycle. However, if you do notice there has been a consistent increase over a number of cycles, then one should consider the possibility of fibroids and endometrial polyps. Menst...

Dear Ria Sorry to hear about your previous history of ectopic pregnancies. This has some relevance since the conditions that lead to an increased risk for ectopic pregnancy are likely to affect both tubes in the pelvis, rather than just one side (since both tubes are connected to...
Consult Doctor
Dear Poh Ching, Treatment is dependent on whether the fibroids are affecting the woman's quality of life e.g. heavy menstrual bleeding, severe pain, anemia etc. If removal is required, surgical options include hysteroscopic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and for some cases, open surgery. The typ...

Dear ZY For a young lady with a history of irregular menses, we will always consider polycystic ovaries as a possible cause. Other possible causes include severe stress, hormonal disorders such as thyroid problems, prolactin producing tumours (prolactin is a hormone necessary for production of br...
Consult Doctor
Dear Crystaline The date of conception is likely to be around 16 days ago. This is because in a typical menstrual cycle of 28 days, ovulation occurs around day 14. This is assuming that everyone’s biological clock does not change from month to month. However, in th...
Consult Doctor
Dear Nic The best advice I can give is actually to go for a check. There are reliable tests to check for infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhea and other possible STIs. While a white discharge is often associated with a fungal/ yeast infection, which sometimes flare up with the menses, there can b...
Consult Doctor
Dear Nurul Menstruation can be assessed according to frequency (24 -38 days), regularity (+/- 7days), duration (<8 days) and volume (whether heavy, normal or light). If you have been bleeding for about 4 weeks, it is considered as a form of abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) a...
Consult Doctor
Dear Lisa If you are only having menses once a year, this is highly unusual and I would highly suggest that you see a gynaecologist for evaluation. Normal cycle length usually ranges between 24 to 38 days - that is, most women would have a menstrual bleed a month. While ...
