Woman's Health

Women have unique needs both in terms of specific health issues and the way to access health services and information.

Being familiar with how your body works, what is considered normal and abnormal, will better help you identify early any potential health challenges and allow you to take action. Monitoring your health can improve your lifestyle and wellbeing.

The most important things you can do to stay healthy are:

  • Be tobacco free 
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Stay at a healthy weight
  • Be physically active
  • Stay social
  • Keep mentally fit
  • Take preventive medicines if you need them


Be aware of your health needs and consult your doctor regularly to find out more about:

  • Birth controls and sexual health
  • The process of aging – the physical and psychological stages
  • Mood changes and other issues might have been related to your menstrual periods
  • Urinary problems, incontinence and pelvic floor exercises
  • The process of menopause and what can help
  • Bone density and how keeping strong can help
  • Diabetes prevention and management


It is important to establish a relationship with your doctor for regular check-ups and screenings for:

  • Weight (BMI)
  • Cholesterol
  • Blood pressure
  • Pap smear
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Mammogram
  • Diabetes screening
