What Is A Gynecological Disorder?
A Brief Note About Gynecological Discorder
Terminology: Gynecology is a branch of medicine that specializes in the treatment of women – specifically, the treatment of diseases and problems of the reproductive organs. A doctor who practices this branch of healthcare is called a gynecologist. Obstetrics is a branch of medicine that deals with the care of women in pregnancy and childbirth. A physician who practices obstetrics is called an obstetrician. Very often a doctor may qualify in both areas and is called an OBGYN.
A gynecological disorder is a condition which affects the female reproduction organs, namely the breasts and organs in the abdominal and pelvic area including the womb (uterus), ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina and vulva. Virtually every woman will suffer a gynecological condition at some point in her life. For most, it will be minor and easily treatable, but for others their condition may have devasting consequences – impacting their ability to have children and even, with some illnesses, threaten their life.
