Obstetrics and gynaecology is a medical specialty that is responsible for the care of pregnant women and their unborn babies, as well as diagnosing and managing diseases that are specific to women. Treatments can be both non-surgical and surgical. Hence, obstetrics deals with pregnancy, related diseases and ensuring the healthy birth of the baby, whereas gynaecology is concerned with addressing problems or diseases of the female reproductive system, i.e. those related to the ovaries, uterus and vagina. Furthermore, it treats conditions and disorders which can manifest themselves in women, such as irregular menstrual cycles.
What conditions does an obstetrician and gynaecologist treat?
When should you see an obstetrician and gynaecologist?
You would see an obstetrician if you were pregnant and were having your regular check-ups and scans. You would also be treated by an obstetrician if there were any health problems related to being pregnant. You would see a gynaecologist every time you have a gynaecological examination, to have a cervical smear, or to treat any problems related to the female reproductive system and hormonal cycle.
