What are obstetrics and gynaecology?
A woman’s health needs change throughout her lifetime, from adolescence to mature adulthood. She needs to address issues relating to reproductive health, pregnancy, menopause, and healthy ageing. Obstetrics and gynaecology specialists attend to women seeking a wide spectrum of services, from cancer prevention to antenatal care to age management, in order to address her needs over each life stage.Request an appointment with an obstetrician or gynaecologist today.
When do you need to see an obstetrician or gynaecologist?
From puberty to menopause, a woman’s health needs change as her reproductive organs respond to the body’s normal process of sexual activity, pregnancy, ageing, or sometimes to injury or disease.
Women usually visit their obstetrician and gynaecologist when they are pregnant. If you think you may be pregnant, you may wish to contact your doctor to make an appointment and establish your antenatal care schedule. Expert antenatal care ensures that both you and your baby are as healthy as possible throughout your pregnancy. Tests are regularly performed to assess baby’s growth and development as well as pre-empt or treat any complication.
Besides pregnancy, teenagers and women may wish to consult an obstetrician and gynaecologist to discuss family planning, sexually transmitted infections, and menstrual disorders. You may wish to consider seeing one if you have:
- An abnormal cervical screening test
- Excessive bleeding or bleeding after menopause
- Issues with urinary incontinence
- Recurrent or persistent irritation of the vagina or vulva, discharge, itching, or pain
- Symptoms of menopause
