Who is the First Gynecologist in the world ? She is also the first Woman physician = Merit Ptah
Merit Ptah generated the oldest known medical papyrus text of any kind in gynecology. Dated to about 1800 BCE, that deals with women's health gynecological diseases, fertility, pregnancy and contraception.
PAPYRUS OF MARIT-PTAH
The text is divided into thirty-four sections, each section dealing with a specific problem and containing diagnosis and treatment; no prognosis is suggested. Treatments are non-surgical, comprising applying medicines to the affected body part or swallowing them. The womb is at times seen as the source of complaints manifesting themselves in other body parts.
There is a reproductive organ section , and fumigation procedure which causes conception to occur; materials prescribed for contraception are crocodile dung, 45ml of honey, and sour milk. Other methods include the placing of an onion bulb deep in the patients flesh, with the positive outcome being determined by the odor appearing to the patients nose. Also treatment for toothaches during pregnancy and a fistula between bladder and vagina with incontinence of urine "in an irksome place."
