Our Mission Behind OB/GYN Health+
OB/GYN Health+ is a resource for you, inspired by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology's quest to help you live your best life. The purpose of this site is to educate, energize, and empower you with information and resources across a broad spectrum of health topics.
The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) is a non-profit organization that board certifies obstetricians and gynecologists (OB GYNs) and offers continuing certification to OB GYNs in the United States and Canada. Board certification is a voluntary process for those physicians who choose to pursue certification.
ABOG also administers board certification in five subspecialties:
- Complex Family Planning
- Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery
- Gynecologic Oncology
- Maternal-Fetal Medicine
- Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
OB GYN Health+ does not provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. All content offered in this website is for informational purposes only. Nor does this website provide access to physicians who offer medical diagnoses or treatments. Please contact your board certified OB GYN or OB GYN subspecialist to seek medical care. To verify whether a physician is board certified, use ABOG’s search tool.
The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) recognizes that patients have diverse gender identities and is striving to use gender-inclusive language in its publications, literature, and other printed and digital materials. In some instances, ABOG uses the word “woman” (and the pronouns “she” and “her”) to describe patients or individuals whose sex assigned at birth was female, whether they identify as female, male, or non-binary. As gender language continues to evolve in the scientific and medical communities, ABOG will periodically reassess this usage and will make appropriate adjustments as necessary. When describing or referencing study populations used in research, ABOG will use the gender terminology reported by the study investigators.
