The gynaecologist is the primary point of contact for women, providing regular gynaecological care, including the first visit at the onset of sexual activity. They address various topics such as cervical screening (pap smear), painful periods, and menstrual disorders. They also provide contraception counselling, discussing options like the IUD, pill, and contraceptive implant. Gynaecologists are also there for couples considering medically assisted procreation (MAP) and guide and support them throughout the process.

Obstetrics, a branch of gynaecology, focuses on pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal care. Obstetricians provide prenatal care, including consultations, monitoring fetal development through medical exams and ultrasounds, and offering advice on physiological and emotional changes during pregnancy. They also prepare women for childbirth and provide support in case of complications. After delivery, they provide comprehensive postnatal care.
