Obstetrics and Gynecology
An OB-GYN, or obstetrician-gynecologist, is a doctor who specializes in women’s health. Some OB-GYNs offer a wide range of general health services similar to your primary care doctor. Obstetrics is the branch of medicine related to medical and surgical care before, during, and after a woman gives birth. Gynecology is the branch of medicine that focuses on women’s bodies and their reproductive health. It includes the diagnosis, treatment, and care of women’s reproductive system.
