When should a woman see a healthcare provider?
Every woman has complex health needs. From adolescence to advanced age, the female body goes through many drastic changes, and these changes can often cause challenges and complications. Because women’s health needs are so complex, there are clinics that specifically focus on addressing these concerns.
Women’s health is important because women are more likely to develop certain diseases than men, including certain types of cancers, heart conditions, and some types of STDs. They are more likely to suffer from severe complications if they have problems with their reproductive organs, like certain types of birth defects and pregnancy problems. Because the female reproductive system is so complex with many different interworking parts, they are more likely to experience health concerns involving the reproductive system. Furthermore, due to the sensitive and delicate nature of the female reproductive organs, women are more likely to become infertile, which is becoming a more prevalent problem.
Mesquite Medical Clinic provides the following women’s health services:
⦁ Breast Care — Breasts play an important role in motherhood as they provide nourishment for newborns. However, they are also susceptible to cancer, which can be prevented or treated early through preventative breast care screenings.
⦁ Pap Smear — Pap smears are important preventative tests that check for abnormalities in the cells of the cervix.
⦁ Gynecology — Gynecological care focuses on sexual and reproductive health and is essential for the health and wellness of each and every woman.
⦁ Women’s Wellness — There are many things that go into women’s health, including routine health checks, disease screenings, mental health, and sexual health.
⦁ Heart Care — The heart is one of the most vital organs, and it is also one of the most common to experience problems, which can be fatal if not properly addressed.
⦁ Women’s Bone Health — Loss of bone density is a well-known complication women face when they get older, and knowing how to prevent these problems can prolong life expectancy and improve quality of life.
⦁ Urogynecology — A subspecialty of gynecology and urology, urogynecology focuses on the pelvic floor health of women.
⦁ Hormone Replacement Therapy — Women go through several hormonal changes throughout their life, and sometimes this can lead to deficiencies or imbalances that need to be addressed by restoring the proper levels of hormones with hormone replacement therapy.
