Women's Health Q & A

What makes women’s health unique?

Women’s health is the medical discipline that focuses on conditions that only women get and the different ways that certain conditions affect women as opposed to men. When you visit a women’s health physician, the feminine aspects of your health are the focus. 

At Ohealth by Dr. T, Dr. Tages-Cordova and her team help you learn to navigate the stages of womanhood, including puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. She also helps you learn to maintain your health with an appropriate diet, exercise regimen, supplements, and treatments. 

What is involved in a women’s health exam?

If you’re a woman, you should get a women’s health exam once per year after age 21. As you age, more screenings and tests are added to your exam. If you have health conditions or a higher risk of getting them, Dr. Tages-Cordova may recommend that you visit more frequently.

Your women’s health exam might include:

  • Pelvic exam
  • Pap smear
  • Mammogram (breast exam)
  • STD screening
  • Cancer screening
  • Birth control prescription or change
  • Bone density screening
  • Mental health assessment
  • Heart health assessment

Your women’s health exam is the perfect opportunity for you to ask Dr. Tages-Cordova questions about your general health and wellness. 

Everything is private between you, so don’t be ashamed to bring up topics regarding your health that seem embarrassing or difficult to talk about. 

What conditions can only women get?

Many conditions and diseases affect women differently, but there is a long list of ailments that primarily affect women. Dr. Tages-Cordova helps you learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of these and other women’s health conditions:

  • Pregnancy
  • Loss of pregnancy (miscarriage or stillbirth)
  • Menopause
  • Menstruation and associated irregularities
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Pelvic floor disorders
  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Endometriosis 

If you’ve noticed unexplainable changes in your menstrual cycle, abnormal bleeding, or discomfort in your pelvis, you should visit Dr. Tages-Cordova for an assessment. 

Be sure to follow through on any treatments or medications that she prescribes for the best possible resolution.

If you’re a woman and need help navigating your body’s changes and fluctuations, don’t hesitate to request an appointment by phone or online at Ohealth by Dr. T today.
