What does Women's Health cover?
Women's health concerns a wide range of medical issues that are unique to women. From menstruation and puberty to pregnancy, birth and menopause, and from mental health and domestic violence to hormones and urinary health, women have health issues that are often different from men's. OB/GYNs as well as general practitioners and many types of specialists treat women for those issues.
What are some of the services that Women's Health providers offer?
Women's Health covers a breadth of women's health issues from a simple pap smear to addressing domestic violence in the home. OB/GYNs help with gynecological and reproductive concerns like prescribing birth control, handling pregnancy and infertility, and diagnosing and treating cancer and other reproductive system disorders and diseases. Women's specialists in physical therapy and cardiovascular and orthopedic fields are becoming more prominent as are mental health providers devoted to assisting women with both domestic and physical issues.
