Obstetrics and Gynecology is the medical speciality dealing with fields of obstetrics and gynecology through only one postgraduate training programme. This combined training prepares the practicing OB/GYN to be adept at the care of female reproductive organs's health and at the management of obstetric complications, even through surgery.
Gynecology normally means treating women who aren’t pregnant, while obstetrics deals with pregnant women and their unborn children, but there is lots of crossover between the two. Surgical procedures include: hysterectomy, oophorectomy, tubal ligation, laproscopy, laprotomy, cystoscopy, Vaginal and cesarean deliveries, episiotomy.

Gynecologic oncology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on cancers of the female reproductive system, including ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, cervical cancer, and vulvar cancer. As specialists, they have extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of these cancers. It is mainly concerned about tumors of the female reproductive tract relating to the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of female cancers.
A medical oncologist specializes in treating cancer with chemotherapy (the use of drugs to kill cancer cells, usually by stopping the cancer cells’ ability to grow and divide) or other medications, such as targeted therapy and oral (in pill form) chemotherapy.

Pediatric Gynecology evaluate and treat patients from infancy and childhood through adolescence and young adulthood, giving special consideration to the physical and emotional needs of young women, and providing support in their transition from pediatric care to gynecologic care.
Pediatric and adolescent gynecology is an emerging specialty, at the intersection of pediatrics, pediatric endocrinology, gynecology, pediatric surgery, dermatology, psychiatry, public health medicine and genetics. It thus addresses a wide spectrum of diseases from the newborn period to adolescence.The gynecological problems encountered in children and adolescents are often both medically and psychologically complex and thus require a highly skilled and coherent approach. The adolescent, who is no longer a child but not quite an adult, poses a particular management problem to the traditional specialties.

Reproductive Gynecology is a surgical subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology that trains physicians in reproductive medicine addressing hormonal functioning as it pertains to reproduction as well as the issue of infertility.
Reproduction is the process by which plants and animals give rise to offspring and which fundamentally consists of the segregation of a portion of the parental body by a sexual or an asexual process and its subsequent growth and differentiation into a new individual. It primarily focus on the treatment of infertility, evaluate and treat hormonal dysfunctions in females and males outside of infertility.

Fertility is the natural capability to produce offspring. As a measure, fertility rate is the number of offspring born per mating pair, individual or population. an egg bursts from the follicle and is released from the ovary. The egg then travels along the Fallopian tube where, at some point, it fuses with the sperm to form a single cell. The fertilised egg takes three days to travel to the uterus (womb), and during this time the cells continue dividing. The fertilised egg, now known as an embryo, implants itself in the endometrium (lining of the womb).
Human fertility depends on factors of nutrition, sexual behavior, consanguinity, culture, instinct, endocrinology, timing, economics, way of life, and emotions. Fertility differs from fecundity, which is defined as the potential for reproduction. A lack of fertility is infertility while a lack of fecundity would be called sterility.

Obstetric fistula is a medical condition in which a fistula develops between either the rectum and vagina or between the bladder and vagina after severe or failed childbirth, when adequate medical care is not available. Obstetric fistula is also known as vaginal fistula. It is an an childbirth injury that has been largely neglected, despite the devastating impact it has on the lives of affected girls and women.
Obstetric fistula is preventable and it can largely be avoided by: delaying the age of first pregnancy, the cessation of harmful traditional practices and timely access to obstetric care.

This is a condition when a woman has 2 or more clinical pregnancy losses (miscarriages) before the pregnancies reach 20 weeks. Losses are classified by when they occur. Loss of a “clinical pregnancy” is diagnosed by a health-care provider using ultrasound. Recurrent pregnancy loss is classically defined as the occurrence of three or more consecutive pregnancy loss. A pregnancy loss is defined as a clinically-recognized pregnancy involuntarily ending before 20 weeks.
Clinically pregnancy loss is commonly occuring in approximately 15-25% of pregnancies. the majority of sporadic losses before 10weeks of gestation result from normal numeric chromosome errors, specifically, trisomy, monosomy and polypoidy.

A post term pregnancy, also called a prolonged pregnancy, is one that has extended beyond 42 weeks or 294 days from the first day of the last menstrual period. As many as 10 percent of pregnancies will deliver postterm. Fetal, neonatal and maternal complications associated with this condition have always been underestimated. In most cases, the cause of postterm pregnancy is unknown. There are some factors that place a woman at increased risk. The incidence is higher in first pregnancies and in women who have had a previous postterm pregnancy. Genetic factors may also play a role.
The prevalence of postterm pregnancy in a population is affected by several factors. One of the most important factors is whether routine early ultrasound assessment of gestational age is performed.

Gynecological surgery refers to surgery on the female reproductive system. Gynecological surgery is usually performed by gynaecologists. It includes procedures for benign conditions, cancer, infertility, and incontinence. Gynecological surgery may occasionally be performed for elective or cosmetic purposes. This field is rapidly changing in response to new developments and innovations in endoscopy, robotics, imaging and other interventional procedures. Gynecological surgery is also expanding and now encompasses all surgical interventions pertaining to women’s health, including oncology, urogynecology and fetal surgery.

Gynecologists play three roles in the health care of women aged 65 and over: surgeon, consultant and therapist for gynecologic disorders, and provider of primary and preventive health care. Geriatric gynecology is a rapidly expanding field. With rapidly changing technology and advances in gynecologic care, we must determine which interventions are appropriate and beneficial, identify unmet needs, and allocate resources accordingly.

Gynecologic issues are disorders that affect the female reproductive system. The most common symptoms of gynecologic issues include pelvic pain, vaginal itching, vaginal discharge, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and breast pain and lumps . The significance of these symptoms often depends on the woman’s age because symptoms may be related to the hormonal changes that occur with aging.
Symptoms may result from mild infections that are easy to treat. But, if they are not treated properly, they can lead to more serious conditions, including infertility or kidney damage. Vaginal symptoms may also be a sign of more serious problems, from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) to cancers of the reproductive tract.

In some countries, women must first see a general practitioner (GP; also known as a family practitioner (FP)) prior to seeing a gynaecologist. If their condition requires training, knowledge, surgical procedure, or equipment unavailable to the GP, the patient is then referred to a gynecologist. As in all of medicine, the main tools of diagnosis are clinical history and examination. Gynecological examination is quite intimate, more so than a routine physical exam. As with all surgical specialties, gynecologists may employ medical or surgical therapies, depending on the exact nature of the problem that they are treating. Pre and post-operative medical management will often employ many standard drug therapies, such as antibiotics, diuretics, antihypertensives, and antiemetics.
Additionally, gynecologists make frequent use of specialized hormone-modulating therapies to treat disorders of the female genital tract that are responsive to pituitary and/or gonadal signals.

Laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery has become the mainstream in operating rooms across the United States. The field of gynecologic surgery is clearly not an exception, as minimally invasive gynaecology has gained enormous momentum within the specialty. Advances in computer technology and laparoscopic instruments have allowed us to offer a minimally invasive approach to a much broader range of patients. The field of gynecologic surgery is proudly included in this medical and surgical marvel.
The surgeon uses small incisions to provide entry into an abdominal cavity, and insufflates with carbon dioxide to create space between the internal organs and the skin.
A miniature camera (laparoscope) is placed through one of the surgical team can view the procedure as a magnified image on video monitors in the operating room. Then, specialized instruments are placed through the other trocars to perform the procedures.

Reproductive health is defined as a state of physical, mental, and social well-being in all matters relating to the reproductive system, at all stages of life. Good reproductive health implies that people are able to have a satisfying and safe sex life, the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when, and how often to do so.
There are two types of reproduction: Asexual and Sexual reproduction
Asexual reproduction generates offspring that are genetically identical to a single parent. In sexual reproduction, two parents contribute genetic information to produce unique offspring.
