Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health is an area of medicine focused on the very specialized health needs of women. Women have unique health needs because of their reproductive organs. In addition to pregnancy and menopause, your reproductive organs also increase your risk of health issues and diseases such as breast cancer, osteoporosis, and cervical cancer.
