Obstetrics and Gynecology
What is an OB-GYN?
An obstetrician-gynecologist, or OB-GYN, is a healthcare professional that specializes in female reproductive health.
People trained as OB-GYNs specialize in both obstetrics and gynecology:
- obstetrics involves working with pregnant women, including delivering babies
- gynecology involves the female reproductive system, treating a wide range of conditions, including sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and chronic pain
