What are Obstetrics and Gynaecology?

Obstetrics (OBS) and Gynaecology, usually called OB-GYN is a field that specifically deals with medical issues related to the female reproductive system. Obstetrics solely focus on pregnancy-related problems that occur during childbirth and the postpartum period. Additionally, it involves taking care of the child and the mother throughout these stages.

On the other hand, gynaecology focuses on the overall female reproductive health. Certain doctors have certifications in both fields and carry the title OB-GYN.

They deal with all aspects related to female reproductive health and delivering a baby, along with acting as a primary care physician for women.

What is the Scope of Obstetrics and Gynaecology?

The scope of obstetrics is as follows:

·         Prenatal Care and Testing

Prenatal care includes regular checkups and ultrasound scans to monitor the developing foetus’ health. This also involves genetic testing in order to detect genetic disorders or chromosomal abnormalities.

Additionally, in case of high-risk pregnancies, the obstetrician may continuously monitor the foetus and mother’s health in order to avoid complications.     

·         Managing Labour and Delivery

Managing labour and delivery includes monitoring the mother and baby’s health and deciding when the mother should start pushing. It also includes pain management options like epidurals, medication, relaxation techniques, etc., along with deciding whether the mother should go for a natural delivery or C-section.  

·         Monitoring Postpartum Complications

After delivery, doctors closely monitor the mother and baby’s health in order to ensure a healthy recovery. It also includes monitoring for postpartum complications like excessive bleeding, infections, depression screening, etc.

·         Foetal and Neonatal Care

Obstetricians are also responsible for foetal monitoring and neonatal care. The former includes monitoring the foetus’ heart rate throughout pregnancy and contractions during labour to ensure that the baby is healthy.

Whereas, the latter entails monitoring and caring for the newborn and checking whether they are making proper development.   

·         Conducting Gynaecological Tests

Obstetrics also include conducting gynaecological exams in order to monitor the patient’s reproductive health. This includes regular check-ups, screenings, etc. in order to detect existing issues, early signs of cancer, cysts and any other issues that can develop in future.

Listed below is the scope of gynaecology:

·         Overall Reproductive Health

Gynaecology involves all aspects of female reproductive health like menstrual cycles, sexual activity, vaginal discharge, etc. It also includes studying the female reproductive system, its associated organs, assessing how hormones and other factors affect it and the ways of treating them.  

·         Diagnosis and Treatment of Infertility

Gynaecologists can prescribe tests which can help diagnose infertility and suggest treatment options to couples like In vitro Fertilisation (IVF), Intrauterine insemination (IUI), and other fertility medications.  

·         Treating Menstrual Cycle Disorders

Menstrual cycle disorders include issues like irregular, painful or heavy periods, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, etc. Gynaecologists can help patients deal with such conditions by prescribing the appropriate diagnosis and treatment methods.   

·         Dealing With Gynaecological Cancer

Gynaecologists also help patients devise screening, prevention and treatment methods for several types of cancers like vulvar, vaginal, uterine, ovarian and cervical cancer.

Why Visit an OB-GYN?

You can consider visiting an OB-GYN for the following:

·         Pap Smears

Doctors recommend every woman aged above 21 to get a pap smear every three years. It helps detect early signs of cervical cancer, thus providing higher chances of recovery.  

·         Screening for STDs

For patients having unusual discharge or abnormal discomfort after sexual activity, screening for STDs is a must. It helps detect a wide array of sexually transmitted diseases and avail timely treatment for them.

·         Pregnancy

Visiting an OB-GYN is crucial during times of pregnancy. This helps ensure that both the mother and the foetus are heathy throughout the gestation period, along with mitigating any chances of developing complications.  

·         Birth Control

OB-GYNs can also help patients choose the right birth control methods based on their lifestyle and health history. Moreover, if needed, they will write a prescription for it.

What to Expect When Visiting an OB-GYN?

When you visit an OB-GYN, you are expected to receive the following:

  • The doctor will first perform a general health checkup like monitoring your weight, temperature and blood pressure. Based on your health condition, he may prescribe a urine or blood test.
  • Then, he will inquire about your health history and perform a pelvic test, breast exam and pap smear.
  • In case you visit an OB-GYN when you are pregnant, he will check your urine sample for signs of gestational diabetes. Additionally, he will monitor the baby’s heartbeat as well as its size and position. Also, he may suggest other tests based on your current medical condition and health history.
