A gynecologist (خواتین کی ڈاکٹر ) provides treatment for the plethora of problems faced by women from all age groups. They cater to the period problems faced by teenagers, sexual and family planning issues of the middle age women and provide care for older, menopausal women.

Gynecologists also treat many diseases and conditions pertaining to reproductive health like ovarian cysts, fibroids, infections, tumors, abnormalities of the reproductive tract, etc. They are also the first doctors to be contacted in cases of fertility issues.

OB-GYN specialists provide the necessary maternal care; pregnancy is a very tricky time in the life of a woman and if it is not handled well, women can even lose their lives. Monitoring the health of the mother and the fetus is hence an extremely important task.

There are many ailments that concern the pelvic and abdominal regions that may not necessarily be due to some gynecological issue. However, women in Pakistan find it easier to discuss these issues with their female doctor i.e., gynecologist rather than a general physician.

Moreover, gynecologists also deal with the welfare of women in general. In an orthodox community, women do not have many avenues to discuss their sexual health. Gynecologists also thus serve to remedy sexual problems, inform and provide their patients of safe sex options and are confidantes of many women. They are at the forefront of furthering the cause for female, and especially maternal, health.
