Women's health: Obstetricians deal with pregnancy and helping women to have a healthy baby. Gynecology deals with women's reproduction health, so gynecologists treat reproductive health problems like irregular periods, vaginitis, abnormal pap tests. Gynecologists also help women to maintain or achieve overall health--and so address issues of weight, moods, and prevention.
