Obstetrics and gynaecology is the area of medicine that combines the two subspecialties – obstetrics and gynaecology. Obstetrics covers pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum while gynaecology covers health of the female reproductive system – uterus, vagina, breasts, and ovaries. A doctor who specialises in this specialty is known as an obstetrician-gynaecologist.

– You are a woman and experiencing symptoms such as vaginal or vulvar pain or abnormal bleeding from uterus
– You are pregnant
– You have delivered a baby recently
– You have issues relating to menstruation, pregnancy, fertility, and menopause
– You wish to have a routine check-up of breasts.
