What is women’s health?

Women’s health includes preventive care and general services to maintain your health as you get older. These services center around your hormonal, reproductive, and sexual health and wellness. Women’s distinct needs in these areas leave them more susceptible to certain health conditions, which consistent women’s health care can help prevent.

The team at Summit Health Family & Urgent Care provides you with a yearly women’s health exam to check in on these aspects of your health and address any of your wellness concerns.

When you visit for a women’s health appointment, you should bring any documentation of recent treatments, a list of your current medications, and the contact information of any previous providers.

Which conditions impact women’s health?

Many conditions affect only women and some that affect women in ways that are different from how they affect men. The team at Summit Health Family & Urgent Care can diagnose and treat a variety of gynecological disorders as well as hormone imbalances and breast conditions. Their specialties include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Infertility
  • Breast cancer and lumps
  • Pelvic cancers

Yearly women’s health visits allow the team to identify conditions like these even if you don’t have any symptoms. Screening tests like a Pap smear aim to identify concerning developments long before they show any signs.

Which services does women’s health provide?

Summit Health Family & Urgent Care provides many essential services to improve or maintain women’s health at any age. Although your needs may fluctuate over time, there are some services you should get routinely.
