Women's health is important. From detecting problems early to treating a variety of issues, finding a gynecologist a woman likes and respects is important in ensuring that she stays healthy. When searching out a women's health care provider many women see that obstetrics and gynecology are frequently linked. This is a natural linkage as both specialties take care of a woman's reproductive health. However, many women wonder which type of women's care is right for them.
A gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in the women's care in regards to their reproductive system. Procedures performed by a gynecologist include mammograms and pap smears, infections of the uterus or vagina, problems conceiving a baby, and hysterectomies. Sometimes a gynecologist confirms the pregnancy and then transfers a woman's care to an obstetrician.
An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in the care of pregnant women following conception through childbirth and post-natal care. An obstetrician will perform regularly scheduled checkup with the pregnant woman and will perform, or order, an ultrasound to ensure the health of the pregnancy and the baby.
Often physicians specialize in both obstetrics and gynecological care in order to care for a woman throughout all points of her life.
