Gynecologist

About Gynecologist

Casually termed as “the science of women”, gynaecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of female reproductive systems, such as breasts and hormonal conditions, amongst many others.

Nature of the job

Some gynecologists are employed by hospitals, some set up their own clinics, and some work in colleges and universities doing research. Considering the intimate nature of the work since it is related to female reproductive systems, some patients can be rather shy or embarrassed with their conditions. A gynae needs to be respectful and compassionate in your communication, listen attentively and sympathetically, and build trust in order to get them to open up and fully discuss the issues they are experiencing.

In modern days, most gynecologists are also trained as obstetricians, expanding their job scope to also focus on pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. This means that you may be called in during irregular hours or weekends to deliver a baby. It may be a struggle getting out of your bed in the middle of the night, but welcoming new lives is always, always, always magical.

It is however not all sunshine and joy, sometimes there will be unfortunate complications such as miscarriages, which are always heartbreaking, you need to be extra gentle in breaking such bad news to patients and families.
