This chapter on obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) is well structured and covers pregnancy, childbirth, and diseases of the female reproductive tract including infertility and cancer. It reviews common conditions, their incidence, presentation, investigations, and management. It also discusses pre-pregnancy counselling and antenatal care in addition to stages of normal labour. High-risk pregnancies with twins or placenta praevia are explained for ease of understanding. It covers emergencies in O&G including ectopic pregnancy, sepsis, and cord prolapse. Uterine cancers are discussed with management. It also includes details on common operations such as hysterectomy, hysteroscopy, Caesarean and other assisted deliveries. This title includes how to perform both O&G history and examination. It is written for both those looking to apply for medicine, and those in medical school.
