Women's Health Q & A

Sunny View Medical Center

What is included in the women’s health service?

The women’s health service offers the basic medical care all patients need but includes a focus on gender-specific problems that women face, such as the need for birth control counseling and regular breast exams. A routine wellness visit at Sunny View Medical Center would include a physical exam, a Pap smear, and breast exam along with preventative services like screening for heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions.

What conditions affect women differently than men?

Women and men face many of the same medical challenges, but some do affect women differently. For example, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., but the symptoms are gender-specific. Osteoarthritis is a condition that can affect both sexes but tends to strike women more. Urinary tract health is a concern for both men and women but in different ways. Women are more prone to urinary incontinence than men, for example.

Do women have a greater risk of stroke?

Women do have an increased risk of stroke, in part, because they have risk factors men don’t, including:

  • Birth control pills
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormone replacement therapy

Add thicker waists and frequent hormone-induced migraine headaches and you understand why women face this risk.

What to expect from the women’s health service?

Women deal with problems that men simply can’t understand such as PMS, pregnancy and menopause. The women’s health service is setup to handle these unique concerns.
