What is an OB/GYN

OB/GYN is a specialization that stands for Obstetrician/Gynecologist. An obstetrician is a medical doctor and surgeon who specializes in pregnancy, childbirth, and reproductive health. OB’s are who you go to when you are thinking about getting pregnant, trying to become pregnant, currently expecting a baby, or about to deliver your baby. Gynecologists, like obstetricians, specialize in women’s reproductive health. GYN’s however, work with women who are not pregnant. They specialize in everything from periods, to bladder health, to menopause and libidos. Most OB’s are also GYN’s, as the specialties go hand in hand. Not all of them perform surgeries however. Sometimes women will see their regular family physician for basic obstetric and gynecologic care, but just as they are specialized in family practice, OB/GYN’s are specialized in this field.
