What is women’s health?

Women's health is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on the unique health concerns and medical needs of women. At EMC Walk-In and Wellness, the experienced providers understand that women experience different symptoms, health risks, and outcomes compared to men.

With a background in women’s health, the team provides gender-specific care tailored to each woman’s individual needs and goals.

What are the most common women’s health concerns?

Women's health concerns can vary depending on your age, lifestyle, and medical history. However, some of the most common health concerns in women include:

  • Menstrual irregularities (heavy bleeding, missed period, etc.)
  • Breast health concerns (lumps and bumps, pain, tenderness, and more)
  • Menopause and perimenopause symptoms
  • Reproductive health issues, such as infertility 
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Sexual health concerns, including sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and low libido
  • Mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety

Women are also at an increased risk of several chronic conditions as they age, such as diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis.

What happens during a women’s health visit?

Every women’s health visit begins with recording your vitals, height, and weight. Next, the team reviews your medical history and asks questions about any symptoms or concerns. Depending on your reason for visiting, your provider may conduct a pelvic exam, which involves checking your vagina, vulva, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and uterus for abnormalities.

Many women’s health exams also include a Pap smear. This screening tests for signs of cervical cancer by collecting cervical cells.

What are the signs of women’s health problems?

Women’s health problems aren’t always obvious. That’s why routine well-woman exams are essential to protect your reproductive health. Telltale signs that it’s time to schedule a checkup include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Irregular periods
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Sudden bloating
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Unintended weight loss or gain

Other signs of women’s health problems may include changes in vaginal discharge, breast changes, fatigue, mood changes, and skin changes. If you experience any concerning symptoms or changes, discuss your concerns with the team.
