Women's Health Q & A
Why is women’s health different?
Specialized women’s healthcare is important as women undergo exceptional physical, emotional, and mental changes in their lifetime. Having a trusting healthcare team that understands the nuances of these changes and provides the proper support is invaluable.
From an overall health and wellness perspective, a woman’s life can be divided into three different stages:
- Reproductive years
- Post-reproductive years
Each of these stages is largely controlled by the female hormones estrogen and progesterone, which signal the considerable changes in your body, whether or not you choose to have children. The influence of these hormones goes far beyond just reproductive issues, affecting your bone, tissue, and heart health, as examples.
What are the most common conditions that affect women?
Some of the most common medical conditions that affect women are:
- Cardiovascular problems, including stroke
- Reproductive cancers
- Sexually transmitted infections
- Urinary tract issues
- Alzheimer’s disease
This list is by no means comprehensive, but it represents some of the more prevalent health problems among women. While most of these conditions are due to anatomical or metabolic differences, others are influenced by intangibles. For example, 80-90% of fibromyalgia diagnoses are among women, and experts aren’t exactly sure why, but they suspect it’s because men and women process pain differently in their brains.
Whatever the reason, it’s important that you seek out expert women’s healthcare services, like those offered at Rochester Primary Care, because the doctors know how to best safeguard your health.
