Women’s Health

What are some factors ofWomen’s Health?

Women’s health screening is similar to preventative health screening but for a few differences. Screening is used in general medical practice in two distinct ways: to screen for early disease and to screen for risk factors for disease or injury. Since medical problems can affect women and men differently, some serious medical issues may be overlooked because symptoms in many women are not clear-cut. Healthcare for women includes the entire spectrum of a woman’s life. At each stage of a woman’s life, there are important preventive health care steps to follow in order to provide early detection of medical problems, or to prevent them.

What are some preventative health screenings for women?

When it comes to preventive healthcare, statistics show that women are more likely than men to see a healthcare provider for regular exams and screenings. That’s a good thing. But, if you’re a woman, do you know what preventive healthcare you need?

The best plan of action is to get a well-woman visit each year. During your visit, your healthcare provider may talk with you about ways to stay healthy like counseling about healthy eating and exercise, sexual and mental health, injury prevention, misuse of drugs and alcohol, and help to quit smoking. You may also have certain screenings and tests.

There are several screenings and tests that could benefit most women:

  • Breast cancer screening (mammogram)
  • Cervical cancer screening
  • Chlamydia screening
