Gynecology is concerned with the female reproductive organ's health and other concerns. Ovarian cancer, infections, hereditary disorders, infertility and other problems of the female sex organs are also addressed. A gynecologist is a doctor with a specialty in treating medical ailments related to pregnancy and maternity. To maintain healthy intimate hygiene, it's essential to consult a gynecologist near you. 

Feminine problems such as menstrual cycle, pregnancy or OCDs are still considered to be taboo topics. Women hesitate to discuss such problems openly with any family member or a doctor. However, you must discuss your problems with your doctor in detail so that you can get the best therapy available. A gynecologist near you helps you to discuss such a problem without any hesitation.

How does a gynecologist help?

Women undergo many physical changes as they hit puberty or when they get pregnant. These changes should be addressed by a specialist who can help and avoid any complications ahead. A gynaecologist can diagnose and treat endometriosis, infertility, ovarian cysts, pelvic pain and a variety of other reproductive issues.

Many gynaecologists also practice as obstetricians and are known as OB-GYN.  

What’s the difference between gynaecologists and obstetricians?

Although both deal with the female reproductive system and organs, there is a minor difference between them. For example, gynecology is concerned with the uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix, ovaries and vaginal health while obstetrics focuses on the care of pregnant women, labor and delivery and postnatal care.

When do you need to see a gynecologist?

Women should pay a visit to a gynaecologist between ages 13 and 15, as, during this time, a girl's body goes through many changes. Annual screening is recommended once a year. For any other concerns about symptoms such as pelvic, vulvar, and vaginal pain or abnormal bleeding from the uterus, one should always ask a gynecologist before taking any over-the-counter medication or therapy.

  • Treatment for contraception, sterilization and pregnancy termination
  • STIs
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Difficulties with ligaments and muscles that support the pelvic organs

  • Sexual dysfunction

What can you expect from your first gynecological visit?

Usually, women feel uncomfortable visiting and answering questions related to intimate hygiene and sexual health. During your first visit to a gynecologist in Delhi, the doctor may start with a general talk about your medical history and sexual life. It is critical to communicate accurate information without any hesitation. The conversation between you and the doctor is never disclosed to any third party.

After primary examination, if the doctor finds any symptom that needs to be addressed, he/she may perform tests like:

  • Pelvic examination
  • Pap smear
  • Internal bimanual exam
  • Breast examination
  • STD test

This test helps the doctor to address any problem at an early stage and treat it accordingly. The length of your initial consultation, your age and your sexual history all influence the type of treatment you receive.


Talking about female health and hygiene should not be taboo. Dealing alone with problems like puberty and menstrual cycle or abortion or pregnancy will lead to many complications. Taking the help of a gynecologist near you will make you feel safer.

Do I need to shave while paying a visit to a gynecologist?

No, it's not necessary to shave or wax before visiting a gynecologist. Although keeping your vaginal area neat, clean and odor-free is recommended.

Does a gynecologist know whether I am a virgin or not?

No, no one except you and your sexual partner will ever know about your virginity. The hymen is a flexible piece and not an indication of virginity. Furthermore, the only way to determine if you are sexually active or not is to perform a pelvic or rectal exam. These tests will not be carried out without your authorization.

Can I see a gynaecologist during my periods?

Yes, of course, if it's urgent, you can surely see a gynecologist even if you are chumming. If the case is not serious or urgent treatment is not necessary, you can wait for a week.
