Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health refers to the specific health issues related to a woman’s reproductive system. Holgistic takes a holistic approach to women’s health, recognizing the interconnections between all organs and systems of the body. Focus is also directed to the importance of mental, emotional, and community health. 

Women have high rates of heart disease, diabetes, anxiety and depression, as well as nutritional deficiencies. Holgistic recognizes that these issues can dramatically reduce your quality of life. 

Women’s health care includes patient education and screening to help you live an active, healthy, and balanced life, no matter your age. 

What are some reproductive health issues women face?

Once you move through puberty, you’ll experience numerous phases of your reproductive life. As the years pass, your women’s health needs will shift and change. Having a trusted team of medical advisors to turn to ensures you navigate those changes with ease and always have access to outstanding care and guidance. 

Some of the reproductive health issues and needs women face include: 

  • Birth control
  • PMS
  • Fertility care
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Uterine fibroids
  • STDs
  • Menopause

Holgistic structures your care to meet your specific set of needs. 

What happens during a women’s health visit?

During your women’s health visit at Holgistic, you’ll receive the screenings appropriate for your age and health history. A breast exam is a standard part of the process, as is a pelvic exam. 

Pelvic exams give your provider a chance to evaluate the tissues of your vaginal walls, cervix, and external genitalia for abnormalities. 

A Pap smear is part of routine well-woman care. Your provider will discuss how frequently you need this simple test, which identifies cervical cancer in the earliest possible stages. 

During your visit, you have an opportunity to discuss any areas of concern and ask questions. If you’re experiencing symptoms, numerous diagnostic tools are available. If a problem is detected, you’ll learn the full details of all treatment options, empowering you to make an informed decision about your care. 

If you’re overdue for a well-woman exam, call Holgistic or book an appointment online today.
