From the first instance of menstruation to menopause, your gynecologist will be there to support you and provide vital treatments for a variety of issues. That’s why it’s important for women to know when to visit their doctor, whether they have family planning questions or are experiencing night sweats and other symptoms of hormonal fluctuations.

The following are just a few ways a trusted gynecology team can help you.

When To See A Gynecologist Cincinnati Ohio


A girl’s first visit to a gynecologist usually takes place by age 15. If your daughter is experiencing any health issues, such as heavy or painful menstruation, it will allow her to get them addressed. As well, they can access information about birth control and STD prevention as they grow older.


All pregnant women should find an OB-GYN they feel comfortable with. These doctors provide prenatal care, help with the delivery, and support during post-pregnancy. Until about week 28, most pregnant women are recommended to visit their OB-GYN at least once a month. From week 28 to 36 visits should occur once every two weeks, and from week 36 on they should happen every week.

Menopause & Post-Menopause

Once a woman has entered menopause she faces an increased risk of cancer. That’s why regular, yearly pelvic exams are crucial at this stage of life. In terms of Pap smears, which are tests that look for cancerous cells inside the cervix, women past 65 will only need them performed if they have a history of abnormal test results.
