Join the team at Family Integrative Medicine as we celebrate National Women’s Health Week from May 10 through May 16! Established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH), the main focus of this observance is to encourage women and girls to prioritize and improve their overall health.
According to the OWH, a recent trend shows that many women have delayed seeking care for their health and wellness during the past few years. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, women have juggled growing responsibilities for child care, working to earn income and more. Many have adjusted their daily routines to keep up with the fast pace of life and the challenging circumstances they face, focusing on others’ needs and minimizing their own health conditions.
Detect Women’s Health Conditions with an Annual Wellness Visit
According to the OWH, many women’s health conditions treated by medical professionals can be resolved or minimized if detected early. It’s also why Family Integrative Medicine’s experts both advocate for National Women’s Health Week and recommend that every woman schedule an annual women’s wellness appointment for preventative care and screening.
Women’s bodies go through normal several stages of change throughout life. As a result, common health risks can vary by age group. Especially after menopause, some women experience health conditions caused by their body’s changing hormone levels. Other major diseases and conditions that significantly affect women’s health include:
- Respiratory Conditions
- Cardiovascular disease
Clearly, the importance of scheduling an annual women’s wellness visit cannot be overstated. During the appointment, your physician may recommend screening tests like mammograms or bone density tests, blood pressure and vital readings, or even medication to address acute symptoms.
