MarinHealth Obstetrician-gynecologists (OB/GYNs) are healthcare specialists who provide care for women through every stage of life. Their focus is on the female reproductive system, and most women make their first appointment with an OB/GYN after their first period or when they become sexually active. While an obstetrician focuses on women’s health during pregnancy, an OB/GYN’s focus is broader and they often perform services similar to what a primary care provider would offer. This includes general health screenings and routine examinations.

When to Visit an OB/GYN

It is recommended that women visit with their OB/GYN once a year for preventive care. OB/GYNs understand the normal growth and development process for women and can answer any questions you may have about your health through every stage of life.

  • Your first period

  • Menopause

  • Abnormal cramping
