AN OBGYN or gynecologist specializes in women’s reproductive health. That means they are basically the go-to person for anything to do with your vagina, your period, your sex life and anything related to pregnancy and reproductive health. Not every woman goes to an OBGYN, some prefer to take their reproductive/women’s health concerns to their main healthcare provider and that is OK too.
However, if you do go to an OBGYN for your feminine health needs, you do also need to have a general practice doctor for issues related to other parts of your body. An OBGYN wouldn’t be a good person to go to if you had a cold, or the stomach flu, or you broke your arm, for example. When selecting any type of healthcare provider, remember to always choose the one you feel the most comfortable with.
