Gynecology is the branch of physiology and medicine that deals with the functions and diseases specific to women and girls, especially those affecting the reproductive system.
Gynecologists have also been trained in obstetrics (pregnancy and childbirth) but their main concern is the care of women's health in general, especially in relation to the female reproductive system - dealing with issues ranging from menstruation and fertility to sexually transmitted diseases and hormone disorders.
In the US, they also have a role, as general physicians, in the overall primary care of women, referring to other specialists when appropriate. Women in the States may first consult their gynecologist with a health problem, rather than a general practitioner.
