Gynecology is the area of medicine that is focused on women’s health involving reproductive organs. It is often coupled with the field of obstetrics, which involves care and treatment around infertility issues and care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.
Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that affects the cervix; the lower part of the uterus connecting to the vagina. Multiple strains of human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, is the most common cause of cervical cancer. You can reduce the risk of cervical cancer by:
Endometriosis is a disorder in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus and on other parts. It most commonly involves ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining in the pelvis. It can occur in women aged 25 to 40 years.
Ovarian cysts are sacs filled with fluid or semisolid material found within the ovaries. Ovarian cysts usually do not cause any symptoms unless they split or rupture. An ovarian cyst can be diagnosed by a pelvic exam, ultrasound, and laparoscopy by the doctor.
Polycystic Ovary Disease or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a hormonal condition in women affecting the ovaries. In this condition, ovaries produce multiple immature eggs which, eventually become cysts on the ovaries. It affects approximately 5-10% of women in their reproductive age (15- 45 years).

It refers to pain in the region of women’s reproductive organs, involving kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. It may be a sign of an existing infection in the body or might be because of the pain in the pelvic bone. Causes of pelvic pain can be:
Antenatal care (ANC) and Postnatal care (PNC) are aimed at ensuring a healthy pregnancy with a bigger goal to prevent the mother’s and child’s death due to any complications. ANC helps pregnant women to identify any complications that might adversely affect the outcome of the pregnancy. Regular visits to the doctor during this period are essential. Ideally, a minimum of 4 ANC visits should be made to a healthcare provider. PNC involves care after the child has been born. It should start within 24 hours of childbirth by a doctor/health worker. PNC includes a systematic examination of mother and baby and providing appropriate advice to them. Important issues which should be discussed by the doctor are:

This procedure involves placing healthy sperm directly in the uterus when the ovary releases eggs that are to be fertilized.
This procedure is very complex and is a type of assisted reproductive technology (ART). It usually works by using a combination of medicines and surgical procedures to assist in the process of fertilization of the egg(s). The fertilized egg is placed in the uterus after this.
Apart from health issues and care during pregnancy, gynecologists also help women and couples facing fertility issues. Infertility, in women, is a condition that is defined as not being able to get pregnant after a year (or longer) of unprotected sex. There are a lot of conditions that may cause infertility in women:
Childbirth is a crucial period in any women’s life. It is a physically challenging and demanding event where women might experience reduced energy which can create health problems for them. Therefore, proper care before, during, and after childbirth is very essential for every woman.
Good reproductive health is very important for women’s general health and overall well-being. There are, however, many issues faced by women in maintaining optimum reproductive health. It is crucial to be aware of some of the common problems so that preventive measures can be taken, and early treatment can be initiated if needed.
