Women's Health Q & A

What health concerns especially affect women?

Some health concerns are specific to women’s different life stages, such as reproductive health, pregnancy, and menopause. Other health issues shared by men and women — such as heart disease — have a different effect on women than men, so they require a different approach.

Essencia Family Practice and Immediate Care Clinic specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of the following female health concerns:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Yeast infections
  • Incontinence
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Menorrhagia, or heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Reproductive and breast cancers
  • Osteoporosis

Mood disorders — such as depression and anxiety — and domestic violence also tend to be more prevalent among women. Essencia Family Practice and Immediate Care Clinic takes these female-specific concerns very seriously when approaching your health and wellbeing.
