Women’s health refers to physical and mental health problems that are of exclusive concern for women, which differs from that of men in many unique ways.
The treatments for women’s health will take care by doctors and health care providers from a variety of different specialties like primary care doctor, obstetrician/gynecologist (Ob/GYN), general surgeons who specialized in breast care, perinatologist, radiologist, Physiotherapist, physician assistant, general practitioner (GP), skin specialist, etc
The following are some of the focus areas in women’s health:
Women’s health includes a wide range of specialties like gynecology, polycystic ovary syndrome, irregular menstrual cycles, in vitro fertilization (IVF), birth control, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, pregnancy, childbirth, sexual health, menopause, hormone therapy, bladder infection, other female cancers, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), immunizations, endometriosis, heavy menstrual cycles, sleep disorders services, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), high-risk pregnancy care, etc
Like the above problems, there are endless problems and solutions as well in women’s health. Being nervous is normal and most of the women will fear or feel shy to explain problems, especially to address an issue as private and personal as reproductive health but you don’t need to be.
