May is an important time for females everywhere – so it’s only fitting to make women’s health a priority this month. No matter what your age is, women should feel empowered to take charge of their health. Regular check-ups are essential and preventive care can keep diseases away or detect problems early, when treatment is more effective.
It’s also important to learn how to talk to your healthcare provider to get the facts and answers you need to a variety of health questions, especially for menopausal and postmenopausal women. Every woman will experience menopause in her healthcare journey. Although many women feel uncomfortable or embarrassed to discuss sexual health issues they may experience during this time, talking about sexual health is a vital aspect to good healthcare.
