Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health, also called gynecology, refers to diagnosing and treating specific female medical concerns. Women can experience the same conditions as men, but they are often affected by these conditions differently and require different treatments and preventive care. 

Women’s health also includes topics like birth control, menstruation and menopause treatment, and treatment of conditions that affect the breast and pelvic regions. 

In addition, women are encouraged to receive regular screenings for breast and cervical cancer, as well as bone density tests to detect and prevent osteoarthritis or osteoporosis.

What does women’s health treat?

Women’s health includes both preventive care and the diagnosis and management of other female illnesses or conditions. At Beacon Family Health Care, women’s health includes:

  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Annual physical exams
  • Birth control guidance and prescriptions
  • Treatment of anxiety and depression
  • Heart disease
  • Infections
  • Urinary tract or bladder problems
  • Reproductive health
  • Osteoporosis and osteoarthritis
  • Breast, ovarian, and other female cancers
