When to See a Gynecologist

Visits with your gynecologist should be a regular part of every woman’s healthcare routine. It is recommended that women start seeing a gynecologist after their first period or when they become sexually active. Annual visits with the gynecologist keep you on top of your health screenings and overall gynecological health.

Conditions commonly treated by gynecologists include:

  • STDs
  • Abnormal periods
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Incontinence
  • Gynecological cancers
  • Breast cancer
  • Endometriosis
  • Sexual dysfunction

Your gynecologist will help you with personal and sensitive health concerns. It is important you select a provider who makes you feel comfortable. You need to be able to speak openly about your health concerns and have an honest conversation with someone you can trust. The trusted team at OGHS will go above and beyond to provide the discrete, compassionate care you deserve.
