Nous parlons français.

Our gynecological practice is located at the center of Düsseldorf. We are at your side …

Like life itself, our practice for gynecology and obstetrics has evolved. Established by Dr. Karla Junghanns in 1993, we are now four gynecologists, each of us dedicated to supporting you personally and responsibly in dealing with the evolving phases of life and challenges you face. We share a joy in our work and we complement one another in terms of our personalities and medical specializations – by sharing medical opinions, discussing diagnoses and analyzing test results, we ensure an exceptionally high level of professional excellence.

We are well aware of the different life and work schedules of our patients, which is why we offer extended consultation times.

… in all life phases.

A close and trustful relationship with each patient is one of our foremost goals, along with
highly qualified and holistic care throughout a patient‘s lifetime. Each of us draws on professional experience in different clinics and areas of gynecology. We are here for you, whatever questions or needs you have: whether related to puberty, pregnancy, cancer screening, menopause or life after menopause – we will take time to give you comprehensive care.

Our areas of expertise

Gynecology for children and teenagers

Gynecological questions can arise among girls of any age.

Because an appointment with a gynecologist is unfamiliar to most, especially very young patients, we allow plenty of time and conduct examinations in an atmosphere that makes children and teenagers comfortable. Girls have concerns of all different kinds. Mothers may also become worried, for example, about a daughter's premature breast development or menstruation.

Other girls may wonder why they have not yet had their period, although their friends have. Premature or delayed puberty as well as vaginal infections, irregularities of the vagina and vulva or premature breast development are not uncommon and can all be treated. As specialists in gynecology for children and teenagers, we are happy to answer all your questions and clear up any concerns you might have. 
Puberty consultation

It's perfectly normal to be a little nervous about your very first appointment with a gynecologist – it's new and unfamiliar to you. We allow plenty of time for puberty consultations. Our focus is on talking with you and answering your questions, rather than on the checkup itself.

Any and all questions you might have are welcome: What do I need to know about menstruation? Do I need the new cervical cancer vaccine? How can I protect myself against venereal disease? What type of contraception is right for me? If you decide on a birth control pill prescription, we will carry out the necessary examination externally via ultrasound. In most cases, there is no need for an internal exam on the gynecology chair.
Gynecology for children and teenagers is one of our areas of specialization, so even younger girls who have not yet entered puberty are in good hands with us.

And of course your mother, best friend or boyfriend is also more than welcome to come along with you to your appointment!

Reliable contraception is about quality of life, not just preventing unplanned pregnancy. We will discuss the many different methods with you in detail and support you in choosing the right one based on the most important criteria, like tolerance and safety. If you have German public health insurance, contraception costs will be covered up to the age of 20 years.

Contraception options include:
  • Birth control pill (micro-pill and mini-pill)
  • Intrauterine device (IUD)
  • Hormone spiral (Mirena)
  • Condom
  • Vaginal ring
  • Three-month shot
  • Etonogestrel implant (Implanon)
  • Sterilization
  • “Natural” methods
  • Emergency contraception
Pregnancy and birth

You're expecting? Good for you! We look forward to supporting you in the coming months with our knowledge and experience. We're here for you to answer all your questions – whether your pregnancy is entirely uncomplicated or you go through difficult times.
We recommend regular prenatal checkups for all expecting mothers. If you have German public health insurance, monthly visits are covered for the first 30 weeks of pregnancy and biweekly visits thereafter. The prenatal examinations allow us to determine whether your baby is developing well and to identify possible risks. We can then take preventive measures or keep risk factors under observation. In the event of a multiple pregnancy, this will be identified at a very early stage and given especially intensive attention in the coming months.

Our clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art ultrasound technology for prenatal diagnostics. We have earned DEGUM II certification from the German Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ultraschall in der Medizin e.V., DEGUM), which is awarded only to practices with an outstanding level of training in ultrasound technology and highest-quality equipment.

Good nutrition is especially important during pregnancy. As an expecting mother, you have heightened vitamin and mineral needs. In fact, it is impossible to get sufficient amounts of certain vitamins and trace elements like iodine and folic acid through food. We will advise you about which vitamin and mineral supplements you should take from the beginning on.

Whatever questions you might have on topics like sex, travel or exercise during pregnancy, prenatal classes, maternity leave, breast feeding or postnatal care – we'll help you get along.

Starting a family
For several months, you have wanted to have a baby. Everything appears to be perfect, yet you're still not pregnant. This can be for many different reasons: organic conditions, hormonal disorders or psychological problems. Studies estimate that one couple out of seven fails to have children despite having a clear wish to start a family. But with today's advanced medical methods, more and more couples are able to have a baby after all. We will work with you to find out what is preventing you from conceiving, and what can be done to help.

In general, there is a 15–20% chance of conception during each menstrual cycle. Half of couples wanting to start a family succeed in conceiving within three months, while two-thirds of the women become pregnant within one year. Those with irregular cycles require longer on average to conceive. But even if your cycle is regular, you and your partner should allow yourselves a year's time before seeking medical advice. After an in-depth consultation with you and your partner, in which we talk about your personal expectations and conditions, we carry out a thorough examination. In further exams at different stages of your cycle, we seek to find out why your wish for a baby has remained unfulfilled.
As failure to conceive is due to the male partner in a large percentage of cases, we always recommend a sperm analysis to determine the makeup of your partner's sperm cells. Following this test, conducted by a urologist, we discuss the results with both of you. Together, we then consider what steps to take next. If you wish, we can cooperate with a fertility center.
Cancer screening

Thorough cancer screening is very important throughout every phase of life. Only if checkups are done on a regular basis can the various forms of cancer be identified and treated at an early stage. Your health is precious, and early diagnosis of cancer significantly increases the chances of cure.

We also utilize your cancer screening visits to talk about how lifestyle factors like exercise and nutrition can help reduce your risk. German public health insurance covers annual cancer screening for women from the age of 20 years onward. As the risk increases with age, the checkups are divided into the age groups 20–30, 30–50, 50–55 and over 55. Women between the ages of 50 and 69 years can include mammography screening to detect breast cancer.

From the age of 55 onward, Germany's public health insurance also covers a colonoscopy to detect cancer of the colon. Alongside cancer screening, we offer a number of additional exams that are generally not covered by public health insurance. When a patient is diagnosed with breast, uterine or ovarian cancer, we take time to explain the disease and what it means in detail. Family members often take part in these talks. We discuss the available therapies and which of them we recommend as well as which hospital is most suitable.

Menopause is a phase of gradual transition to a new stage of life. Family planning is no longer relevant and your own interests take on greater importance. We will explain the changes taking place in your body and how to ease possible complaints. Together, we'll work out an individual therapy plan to help you through this period. Many different options are available.

Around the age of 50, you can expect your menstrual period to stop occurring. As an initial sign that menopause is approaching, your cycle will become irregular – in many cases, shorter – as your hormonal makeup changes. Each woman experiences this phase of life individually. When the effects begin and how strongly they are felt can vary widely. One woman in three experiences significant discomfort due to effects like hot flashes, accelerated heart rate and urinary leakage. Patients frequently feel depressed, have trouble sleeping and experience a decrease in sex drive. On the other hand, a third of women feel no discomfort at all.

Hormone therapy offers a broad range of options that not only address menopause-related complaints, but can also have the additional benefit of anti-aging effects when applied properly.

After menopause
The inner turmoil of menopause is followed by a transition to more peace and composure. A sense of awareness and caring for your wellbeing plays a greater role. Regular cancer screening is important, as are osteoporosis tests. Incontinence may become an issue. We wish to support you in maintaining your happiness, health and beauty during this life phase.

As of 2017 Partner in the gynecology practice Dr. Karla Junghanns and Dr. Sybille Schmidt

“During the many years I've worked at different hospitals university clinics, I have gained experience in many areas of gynecology and obstetrics – from risk pregnancies and emergency care to breast cancer diagnostics and gynecology for children and teenagers. At the Medical Center of the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) of Munich, which maintains a large midwifery practice and cooperates on home-birthing support, I learned firsthand that there is much more to healthcare than a narrow focus on old-school medicine. It is so important to see the patient as a whole human being, to slow down and ask what a woman needs and how I can give her strength. These aspects play a huge role for me, not only during childbirth, but as guidelines for my holistic approach to all patients.

I have lived happily in Düsseldorf with my husband, our daughter and two sons since 2010.”
