Gynaecology is the study of medical science that deals with the health and functions of the female reproductive system. The subject revolves around the functions, diseases, disorders and treatments related to the female vagina, ovaries and uterus.
Doctors who deal with gynaecological problems in female patients are called Gynaecologists. Some of the common gynaecological symptoms include menstrual problems like heavy periods, irregular or intermittent periods, bleeding between periods, pelvic and abdominal pain between periods, irregular discharge and burning or itching.
