Why do I need women’s health care?

Women’s health care is essential for preventing chronic conditions, supporting your reproductive health, and promoting overall wellness with a sustainable lifestyle plan.

Beyond reproductive care, women’s health focuses on every unique concern facing women, including mental and emotional challenges, sleep disorders, hormonal imbalances, and nutritional challenges.

Your provider also monitors women for health concerns such as heart disease, breast cancer, and autoimmune diseases. Women account for more than 80% of all people diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, putting them at a high risk of conditions such as thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and Crohn’s disease.

What gynecology conditions are included in women’s health?

Your Prosperity Internal Medicine provider offers skilled care for:

  • Missed or irregular periods
  • Painful periods
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), including severe PMS
  • Perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause
  • Conditions associated with menopause

Hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings are common problems before perimenopause, during menopause, and post-menopause. But they’re not the only challenges. After estrogen production stops, your chances of developing osteoporosis dramatically increase.

Which health screenings are included in women’s health?

  • Breast cancer (clinical breast exam and mammogram)
  • Cervical cancer screening (Pap smears)
  • Osteoporosis screening (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, or DEXA)
  • Colorectal cancer screening (stool testing and colonoscopy)
