Gynecology is the care of the female reproductive system.
What’s the difference between gynecology and obstetrics?
Gynecologists treat women who aren’t pregnant, while obstetricians treat pregnant women and their unborn children. However, there is a great deal of crossover between the two fields.
Gynecologists manage diseases of the uterus (womb), fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, vagina, and vulva. A gynecologist also specializes in menstrual problems, contraception, sexuality, menopause, and infertility. Many gynecologists also provide prenatal care.
What do gynecologists do?
Gynecologists perform the following procedures:
- Laparoscopy: the diagnosis and removal of cysts and infections from the ovaries and fallopian tubes
- Cone biopsies: the removal unhealthy cells from the cervix to prevent cervical cancer
- Hysterectomies: the removal of a woman’s uterus
