  • No. Not all health issues are gynecological.

  • I too use my Pcp as my Obgyn. The only things I'll go to the OB for are things my pcp isn't cleared to do, like the removal of my IUD, or prenatal care. But my pcp can and has done the general check up stuff, like pap smears and breast exams. Which saves me a trip every year.

  • No. Different doctors specialize in different areas of the body and mind.
