This means diseases of the uterus (womb), fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix (opening of the womb), vagina, and vulva (external genital organs). A gynecologist also specializes in menstrual problems, contraception, sexuality, menopause, and infertility. Many gynecologists also provide prenatal care. Some gynecologists may perform primary care services depending on their experience and training.
