What is Gynecology?

Gynecology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the female reproductive system and the care of women's health. This includes the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the reproductive system, such as menstrual disorders, infertility, and cancer. Gynecologists are medical doctors who specialize in this field and are trained to provide care for women throughout their lives, from adolescence through menopause.

A typical gynecological exam includes a pelvic exam and a Pap smear, as well as other tests such as a pelvic ultrasound and testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Gynecologists also provide routine care such as birth control counseling, cervical cancer screenings and can help identify and manage menopause symptoms. They may also perform surgery, such as cesarean sections, hysterectomies, and other procedures.

Gynecologists work with other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care for women, and they often collaborate with obstetricians, who specialize in care during pregnancy and childbirth, to provide care for women during pregnancy and postpartum period.
