Women's Health Q & A

What issues are unique to women?

Everything from bone fractures to heart disease is different in women, which makes preventive measures that target a woman’s unique makeup highly effective. For example, because of hormone levels, women are more prone to bone density issues, especially as they age, putting them at a higher risk of fracture. Seeking medical advice to address osteoporosis before it becomes an issue helps women lead happy, active lives.

Women’s organs, namely the reproductive organs, are highly specialized in their functions, and the doctors at the Montes Medical Group can help you navigate the issues and provide the expertise and care needed to keep these organs functioning properly, whether or not you have children already, or plan on having them.

What is a woman’s wellness exam?

Regular wellness exams are a great way to track your health, from your younger reproductive years on up through menopause and beyond. In creating a solid medical history and baseline, doctors can follow your journey with an eye toward the issues unique to women and detect any changes before they become major problems.

Wellness exams typically involve checking the following:

  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Hormone levels
  • Cholesterol
  • Liver function
  • Heart activity
  • Respiratory system
  • Breasts
  • Pelvic region

Depending upon your history, more tests may be ordered to ensure that no stone is left unturned when it comes to your health.

As well, the doctors at Montes Medical Group firmly believe in good preventive care and will recommend lifestyle changes for you, such as exercise regimes and nutritional habits.

How often should older women have a wellness exam?

As women age and head toward menopause, changes in hormone levels can play a large role in their health. The level of estrogen, often referred to as the “female” hormone, starts to drop in a woman’s 40s and 50s, and this drop can lead to a host of issues, such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Weakening of the skin
  • Muscle and tissue loss
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Memory loss

Observing how your body reacts to the progressive drop in estrogen, while taking your medical history into account, will dictate how often you should seek medical help. The doctors at Montes Medical Group want to make sure that your post-reproductive years are as happy and healthy as possible and will do what it takes to ease your transition.
