Women's Health

womens health.png

Women have their own health issues due to a complex reproductive system that makes them unique from men.

A variety of diseases such as heart attack, depression, anxiety, sexually transmitted infections (STI), osteoarthritis, and urinary tract problems can affect women more severely than men.

These problems necessitate them visiting their doctor at timely intervals in order to screen for various diseases. Screening tests can assess the risk for future illnesses and help in their early detection.

Regular assessments are important for women’s health. Cervical cancer and precancerous changes of the cervix are common problems that should be assessed and treated early.

Approximately one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime so breast examinations should be a part of your overall health plan.

Our doctors at Batavia Health perform these examinations and assessments. We also have a fully functional treatment room with registered nurses.

Breast Checks

Breast problems are the most common health concerns among women and can affect women at any age. In women, the development of breasts usually begins around puberty and they may undergo various changes throughout the life cycle, especially during menstrual periods, pregnancy, lactation and advancing age.

Cervical Screening Test

The new Cervical Screening Test detects human papillomavirus (HPV). The current guidelines recommend that every woman and person with a cervix from the ages of 25-74 who has ever had sexual contact should have a Cervical Screening Test every five years

Pre-Pregnancy

Pre-pregnancy counselling and care will help you to become physically healthy and emotionally strong before you enter into the phase of pregnancy. It helps in checking for possible risk factors during pregnancy and also gives a way to resolve any medical issues you may have before you become pregnant.

Menopause

The termination of menstruation and fertility of women is known as menopause, and occurs 12 months after your last menstrual period, when you are in your 40s or 50s. Some women can experience menopause before their 40s, and the condition is known as premature menopause.

Pregnancy Care

Antenatal appointments are important even if you are healthy and your pregnancy is going well. They allow your doctor to check your health and your baby’s health so they can find and manage any problems early on. These appointments are also a good opportunity for you to ask questions and talk about any concerns you have.

Incontinence

Urinary incontinence can affect patients differently. You may be experiencing loss of bladder control, a sudden urge to urinate or an overactive bladder.

There are also other reasons why a woman may leak urine. Sometimes it’s caused by an illness, in which case bladder control returns when the illness goes away.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal condition commonly involving high levels of insulin or testosterone. The cause of PCOS is unclear. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects 12-18% of women of reproductive age and up to 21% in some high-risk groups, such as Indigenous women.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition that affects a woman's reproductive organs. It happens when the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of it.
