Many women are unaware of the many unique services offered at women’s health clinics, which promote both the physical and psychological well-being of women. From support groups to family planning, women’s health clinics are an incredible resource, and all women should be aware of the services offered in women’s health clinics.
Professional and non-judgmental service
The healthcare professionals working in women’s health clinics are trained to treat patients in a professional, respectful manner so that women feel comfortable sharing their information and seeking out services.
Female-focused health assessments
Women’s health clinics conduct a range of female-specific health assessments such as gynecological and breast exams. The physicians working in these clinics work with a focus on health risks that are specific to women, such as cervical cancer. Many women are unaware of the ailments that affect the female body only. Visiting a women’s health clinic can be a great way to educate yourself on symptoms to look out for, and how to conduct certain health exams at home.
Resources for pregnant women
For women who are unsure whether or not they want to carry their pregnancy to term, women’s health clinics provide ample psychological support to help women make difficult decisions, as well as emergency contraception. Women who plan on carrying a pregnancy to term can find family planning services, prenatal care, lactation services, and resources for postpartum complications at a women’s health clinic. In addition, women can find valuable information on birth control options, and how to manage their method of birth control.
Regular sexual health tests
Many women avoid seeking information and treatment from women’s health clinics because they are simply looking for a routine STD checkup. Women can seek out the same STD testing as one might find in a regular sexual health clinic, however, the women’s health specialists in these facilities will be able to provide even more detailed information and resources, which are specific to female health.
