Women's Health Q&A

What is included in women’s health?

At Generations Family Practice in Cary, North Carolina, the expert team of doctors and medical practitioners offer a number of services to their female patients. They’re dedicated to the reproductive and overall health of women through services such as:

  • Well-woman exams
  • Tests for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Cancer screenings
  • Gynecology services
  • Pregnancy counseling
  • Contraception
  • Prenatal care
  • Menopause therapy

Your team is skilled and experienced in every aspect of women’s health.

Why should I consider women’s health?

Women have different medical and physical needs than men. Women are more likely to develop or die from certain diseases, such as heart disease. They’re also more likely to develop illnesses such as:

  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Depression
  • Serious effects of STDs
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Another part of women’s health is making sure your reproductive organs are healthy and functioning as they should.

What reproductive services are included in women’s health?

Your doctor helps you navigate every stage of your reproductive life, from your first period all the way through menopause and beyond. They make sure your periods are regular and normal, for instance, and may prescribe treatments if you bleed abnormally or experience extreme pain or discomfort during your periods.

You can get help with either becoming pregnant or preventing pregnancy through contraception. Your doctor counsels you on the best types of effective contraception and safe-sex methods based on your needs and desires. 

If you’d like to become pregnant, your women’s health team helps with counseling and testing. They also offer prenatal care, exams, and ultrasounds to ensure that your baby develops normally. 

Once you enter perimenopause or menopause, your provider helps you manage symptoms with lifestyle changes and possibly hormone replacement therapy (HRT). They also help you protect your bones as your hormone levels fluctuate.

When should I seek help for women’s health?

In addition to regular exams and counseling, you should contact Generations Family Practice any time you feel unwell or notice unusual symptoms such as:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Painful cramps
  • Heavy or irregular bleeding
  • Foul-smelling or unusual vaginal discharge
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Low libido
  • Dry, itchy vagina
  • Blisters or sores on your vulva or anus
  • Mood changes
  • Insomnia
  • Incontinence
