Women's Health Q & A

Why do I need routine women’s health care?

Whether you call it an annual physical, wellness visit, or well-woman exam, getting a yearly health check-up is the best (or only) way to prevent chronic health conditions and maintain optimal wellness.

During your yearly well-woman exams, you also have the opportunity to talk with your provider about any issue on your mind, whether you want to stop smoking, wonder when to have STD testing, or need help dealing with acne.

What are the top women’s health concerns?

Better Health Management Inc offers comprehensive care for the vast array of health issues facing women, ranging from common concerns like acid reflux to complex conditions. Among the top women’s health concerns are:

Heart disease

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women.

Breast cancer

Breast cancer is the most common of all the different cancers.

Hormone imbalances

In addition to hormones that fluctuate during puberty, menstrual periods, pregnancy, and menopause, women can develop other hormone imbalances. Hormone levels often drop due to age, stress, illness, and nutritional deficiencies.

Women also have a much higher risk than men of developing thyroid and adrenal disorders. These disorders can lead to serious problems because these glands produce hormones that regulate every body function, including metabolism, heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, body weight, and sleep cycles.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age, putting them at risk for infertility and causing serious health problems like insulin resistance, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

What happens during women’s health care?

A well-woman exam begins like an annual check-up. Your provider reviews your medical and reproductive history, learns about any problems you may have, and checks your blood pressure, weight, and heart rate.

After completing a physical exam, your provider may also do a urinalysis or run bloodwork.

You can receive a wide range of women’s health care services, including:

  • Pelvic exam
  • Breast exam
  • Birth control
  • Pap smear
  • STD testing
  • Immunizations
  • Weight management
  • Mental health care
  • Health screenings
  • Chronic disease management
