WOMEN'S HEALTH AND EDUCATION
WHAT IS WOMEN'S HEALTH?
Women’s health is an all-encompassing comprehensive subject. Biologically, women have a host of unique issues that distinctly separate them from men. The internal systems that keep a woman alive operate with more complexity than a man’s internal system. In fact, some of the health complications that affect both men and women will affect a woman differently.
Woman’s health is so specialized and complex that it has been given its own branch of medicine. OBGYNs are so integral to the promotion of women’s health, that no other doctor can be qualified to care for the health of a woman. A doctor like Dr. Melissa Austin has spent countless hours studying and analyzing the reproductive and general health of women.
Some of the unique issues that affect a woman’s health are:
- Conditions of the female organs
Other more serious issues that women must stay aware of are:
- Breast cancer screenings
- Cervical cancer screenings
- Bone density screenings
Staying up to date with regular screenings and tests is the only way to ensure that you stay in peak physical condition.
Both the distinct studies of Obstetrics and Gynecology cover different aspects of women’s health. To learn more, let’s examine the differences and similarities between the two.
Obstetrics encompasses the health of expecting mothers. Everything from the health and care of pregnant women, the growing baby, delivering the baby, and recovery of the mother after the delivery falls under obstetrics. Ensuring that the mother and child receive only the best care to eliminate complications is the job of the Obstetrician.
Gynecologists are primarily concerned with the overall health of a woman. Taking care of reproductive organs like the uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix, ovaries and vagina fall under the description of a gynecologist. Your friendly gynecologist will also check your body for healthy functions and other disorders that are affecting you.
An OBGYN is a doctor that is concerned with both Obstetrics and Gynecology. Although the specialty of an OB-GYN is considered one distinct study, it is composed of both specialties. Therefore, for total health, a woman must visit an OB-GYN.
As a woman gets older, she will progress into menopause. This transition can be a confusing time. The mix of emotional and physical changes will be just as impactful as the transition into puberty. Having an OB-GYN to assist you through each phase of your life will keep you in tip top physical condition. Therefore, a woman’s health involves deeply understanding the signals and signs that your body is telling you. Because of the delicate nature of the female system, constant contact with an OB-GYN is recommended for your overall health
If you’re asking yourself what exactly women’s health is then you should speak with an OB-GYN. A place where you can get on the same page and lay out a plan to stay in good health.
