WOMEN’S HEALTH

 

Women's health is not confined to reproductive health.  Needless to mention, women's health differs from men's health owing to the obvious reason of the biological and social beings women are. Both men and women are unique in their own ways and as such come with their uniqueness in the various aspects of health.  When one thinks of the health of a woman, one is tempted to only think of the reproductive health.  However, there is a lot more that makes a woman different from a man and as such each area of a woman's health needs to be tackled as a distinct entity.

 

Prevention is always better than cure.  Hence, the following is a list of health problems every woman of reproductive age needs to have checked regularly:

 

1. Cervical CancerWomen's Health

2. Breast Cancer

3. Cholesterol levels

4. High Blood Pressure

5. Skin Cancer

6. HIV  - Human Immunodeficiency Virus

7. Type 2 Diabetes
