Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health is concerned with conditions affecting the female reproductive system and the female anatomy. Men and women share many of the same kinds of common health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, and infectious diseases. 

However, some health conditions affect women exclusively, like endometriosis, or affect women far more commonly than men, like breast cancer.

Women’s health includes:

  • Breast health
  • Maternal and child health
  • Genital health
  • Menstrual health
  • Endocrine (hormonal) health
  • Sexual wellness

The Vantage Medical Associates PC team helps you keep up with all of your health needs and learn to identify issues as they arise.

What conditions would come under women’s health?

Examples of the types of conditions that come under women’s health include:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Yeast and bacterial infections
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Menstrual problems
  • Painful intercourse
  • Menopause
  • STDs (sexually transmitted diseases)
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
  • Breast disorders
  • Incontinence
  • Infertility
  • Some cancers
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Cystocele

Issues relating to the menstrual cycle, like painful periods and PMS (premenstrual syndrome), are common. The female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone responsible for reproduction and menstruation can also disrupt your life when you go through menopause.

If you have any urgent concerns about your health, you should make an appointment with your doctor at Vantage Medical Associates PC. Also, make sure to schedule a regular well-woman exam.
