Obstetric and Gynaecologist Specialists at PMC Hospital, Malaysia
Obstetrics and gynaecology are two branches of medicine specialising in treating and caring for women. They are specialists in diagnosing and treating conditions related to the female reproductive system.
The primary focus of obstetrics is on caring for pregnant women and their babies. They also monitor the health of the fetus. Obstetrical conditions are types of problems that can affect a woman's reproductive system.
A gynaecologist is focused on the health and function of women's reproductive system. Contrary to obstetricians, gynaecologists diagnose and treat diseases and disorders that affect the female reproductive system. They do not treat people who are pregnant or have babies.
They diagnose and treat reproductive system disorders such as:
- ovarian cysts
- pelvic pain
They may also care for people with ovarian, cervical, and other reproductive cancers. Some gynaecologists also practise as obstetricians.

Gynaecological disorders are disorders that affect the female reproductive system. Common types of gynaecological disorders include:
- polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) - the most common cause of anovulatory infertility
- uterine fibroids
- menstrual disorders
When Should You Visit Your Obstetrics and Gynaecologists?
Malaysian females are recommended to undergo their first gynaecological visit between the age of 13 and 15. For some women, however, their first visit to the gynaecologist takes place once they are sexually active.
After taking a pregnancy test at home, women must make an appointment with a doctor to get their first prenatal visit. This appointment should be made around eight weeks after their last menstrual period.
You should make an appointment if you think you are pregnant or around six to eight weeks into pregnancy. You can start by making an appointment with a midwife or your general practitioner at a women's health clinic or hospital.
These healthcare providers can help you to plan for your pregnancy and provide you with the necessary prenatal care. Before choosing a doctor to take over your care, you should meet with other doctors.
Some of the tests that your gynaecologist may perform include the following:
- blood pressure
- body weight and body mass index measurement
- breast exam to check for abnormalities
- Pap smear test to check for cervical cancer
- pelvic exam to check for abnormal lesions or discharges
