Women’s obstetrics and gynecology covers two of the main types of women’s physicians, and they are often used interchangeably even though they do two different things. An obstetrician specializes in obstetrics, or prenatal care. They are the physicians’ women turn to when they are expecting. Soon to be mothers will visit an obstetrician throughout their pregnancy to ensure they, and their baby, are healthy. An obstetrician will also create a birth plan with you and deliver the baby. After you have the baby, your obstetrician will care for you for a while to ensure you are recovering, before referring you back to your gynecologist or OBGYN.
The other half of women’s obstetrics and gynecology is gynecology. These physicians specialize in the health of women’s reproductive system and sexual health. The do not, however, provide care for expectant mothers. They provide annual wellness exams to their patients as well as STD and STI testing, birth control management, in office procedures, and even menopause counseling.
The third type of women’s physician in an OBGYN. This type of doctor has training in both women’s obstetrics and gynecology. While an obstetrician and a gynecologist can’t provide care in each other’s area, an OBGYN can. This allows for patients to receive care from the same doctor throughout all of life’s stages, including pregnancy.
