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