Obstetrics & Gynecology Q & A

Leavitt Women's Healthcare

What is Gynecology?

Doctors who specialize in the reproductive system of a woman are known as gynecologists. These doctors are specialists who are able to provide specific care for a woman’s specific needs related to the vagina, cervix, ovaries, and hormones. Special knowledge includes:

  • Female general health including hormones, reproductive organs, breasts, and sexual function
  • Preconception health and wellbeing to enable a healthy baby to be conceived
  • Care during pregnancy and labor ensuring a baby is born properly
  • Postpartum care following birth
  • Menopause and its effects
  • Cancer screening for cervical and ovarian cancer

What is Obstetrics? How is it Different From Gynecology?

An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in pregnancy and its side effects in a pregnant woman. They differ in discipline from a gynecologist, though most doctors specialize in both obstetrics and gynecology. Specific care provided by an obstetrician includes preparing a woman for pregnancy by teaching them how to effectively manage their lives and bodies, helping the woman monitor her pregnancy, providing care for the developing fetus, and treating pregnancy complications such as nausea, cramping, preeclampsia, and any other pregnancy-related illness. The doctors at Leavitt Women’s Healthcare are skilled in providing the highest level of obstetrical care for all of their patients.

What Services Does a Gynecologist Provide?

A gynecologist provides care for women outside of pregnancy. This includes care for their reproductive systems and uterus, their hormones, and providing screens to ensure that no major medical issues arise. Numerous tests are available for women that are provided by gynecologists. These include Pap smears, breast exams, cancer screenings, and testing for HPV. Effective reproductive health is required for all women who have been sexually active or have had children. The doctors at Leavitt Women’s Healthcare provide the highest level of care for women and their specific needs. The safe and respectful providers will enable each female patient that they see to have a secure and comfortable experience.
