What is Gynecology and Obstetrics?
Gynecology is the medical and surgical specialty that studies the female reproductive system and its diseases, that is, the internal and external genitalia and mammary glands.
Obstetrics is the medical specialty that deals with the monitoring and care of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period, in addition to exploring the psychological aspects of maternity.
These specialties jointly create a single one. This way, an obstetrician-gynecologist can perform a comprehensive monitoring of the female patient from her childbearing age to menopause./p>

Prevention saves lives!
There is no specific age to visit a gynecologist, but it is necessary if the patient is sexually active or if problems or changes appear, particularly during pregnancy, such as bleedings, persistent cramps or decreased fetal movement.
