Gynecology is a specialist branch of medicine practiced by obstetrician-gynecologists, who treat patients who were born female or have female body parts (whether or not they identify as women).

A gynecologist is a doctor who treats medical conditions and diseases that affect women and female reproductive organs. (Gynecologists are also trained in obstetrics – the care of women going through pregnancy and childbirth, which overlaps with gynecology.

Examples of conditions dealt with by a gynecologist are:

  • Cancer and pre-cancerous diseases of the reproductive organs including ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, vagina, and vulva
  • Incontinence of urine
  • Amenorrhea (absent menstrual periods)
  • Dysmenorrhoea (painful menstrual periods)
  • Infertility
  • Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual periods); a common indication for hysterectomy
  • Prolapse of pelvic organs
  • Infections of the vagina (vaginitis), cervix and uterus (including fungal, bacterial, viral, and protozoal)
  • UTI and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Other vaginal diseases

There is some crossover in these areas. For example, a woman with urinary incontinence may be referred to a urologist.
