What is Gynaecology?
Gynaecology is the medical practice which deals with functions and diseases specific to the health of the female reproductive system, usually treating women who aren’t pregnant.
Obstetrics usually treat pregnant women and their unborn children, but scenarios can dictate crossover between the two. For example, women may be referred to consultant gynaecologists in the earlier stages of pregnancy, and obstetricians later in their term.
