Abstract: The traditional practices for gynecologic complaints of Turkish women were examined. The research population was comprised of patients admitted to the gynecology service at Health Ministry Ege Obstetrics and Gynecology Teaching Hospital. The sample included 143 gynecologic patients hospitalized for treatment between the ages of 18 and 59 yrs who agreed to participate. A questionnaire form was used for data collection in the research that was developed by the investigators according to related literature. It was used for data collection in face-to-face (revized) interviews with the women. It was found that, of the women with gynecological problems who were within the scope of the research, 23.8% employed traditional practices and used herbal products for gynecological complaints.
