What is Obstetrics and Gynaecology?

Obstetrics is a medical field that concentrates on pregnancy, childbirth and the time soon after birth while Gynaecology is the medical field that focuses on a woman’s reproductive system, its functions and the diseases that affect it.

Types of Conditions

Obstetric conditions can include some of the following:

  •  Gestational Trophoblastic: this is a rare type of cancer that occurs during pregnancy. The cancer cells grow in the uterus where the baby grows.
  • Ectopic pregnancy: occurs when the fertilised egg attaches itself on other parts of the reproductive system and not the uterus as it should.
  • Spontaneous abortion (miscarriage): is the natural death of an embryo or foetus before 20 weeks of gestation.
  • Labour abnormalities: these are the rare cases during labour such as malpresentation (the wrong positioning of the baby that hinders natural delivery).
  • Congenital malfunctioning of the female genital tract: these are conditions that affect normal functioning of the various reproductive parts such as the uterus e.g. Didelphys (a condition in which a woman has two uterine walls).

Gynaecological conditions can include some of the following:

  •  Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS): is a condition common in women that affects the ovaries causing prolonged and irregular menstruation.
  • Genital tract infections: these include Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s) such as Gonorrhoea and Syphilis.
  • Ovarian cysts: these are fluid sac pockets that grow in the ovaries. Most are harmless and cause no pain, However, some do cause pain and may even be cancerous.
  • Endometriosis: is a condition that occurs when the lining of the uterus grows on other areas of the body especially the reproductive areas such as the fallopian tube, the pelvis and the ovaries.
  • Uterine fibroids: these are noncancerous tumours that grow in the uterus especially during child bearing years.

How IMT Can Help?

Obstetrics and gynaecological conditions can be treatable, especially if caught early

We recommend that you see your local doctor for health check-ups and that you keep yourself informed about the best ways to maintain a healthy life-style.
