Who is a Gynecologist? What's the right time to visit them?

Gynecology is the study of the female reproductive system. A Gynaecologist is the one who provides all the examination services related to the female reproductive system and its sexual health. It includes pap tests, screening of cancer, checking in the vaginal infections, pelvic exams, etc. Apart from this, they are responsible to treat the disorders related to the reproductive system of the women like fertility issues, endometriosis, pelvic pain, ovarian cysts, and STI's. 

The average yearly salary of gynecologists is 18,00,000/- annum in India. The people starting their career as a fresher in this industry may expect up to 2,50,000/- year and the people having years of experience can expect upto 30,00,000/- annually in India. 

As suggested by the "American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists," -

  • People between the age of 13 to 15 must visit the OB-GYN to build a rapport with the doctor - not mandatorily for the test if she doesn't have any medical issues.
  • People must visit a gynecologist whenever they become sexually active at the age of 21 for the Pap Test.
  • People must visit the gynecologist if they have any reproduction-related issues like STDs, sex pain, pregnancy complications, miscarriage, infertility.

As per one of the articles published by the health department in 2018 - the United States is recently facing a big shortage in the OBS-GYN. The major reason behind this is the 'Lesser medical students opting for this subject.'
