  1. Gynecology

    Gynaecology or gynecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive system. Literally, outside medicine, it means "the science of women". Its counterpart is andrology, which deals with medical issues specific to the male reproductive system. Almost all modern gynaecologists are also obstetricians. In many areas, the specialties of gynaecology and obstetrics overlap.
