Women's Wellness & Health Q & A

What is the focus of women’s wellness and health?

Men and women share many of the same health concerns, like diabetes and heart disease, but women have special health concerns that involve the female anatomy and reproductive system. 

Women’s wellness and health care focuses on:

  • Annual pelvic exams, including Pap smears 
  • Breast health, including clinical exams and mammograms
  • Maternal and child health
  • Genital health
  • Menstrual health
  • Hormonal health
  • Sexual wellness

A woman’s health care focus changes as she ages too. The team at Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic tailors care according to your needs, symptoms, and health history. 

What services come under women’s wellness and health?

The women’s wellness and health services provided at Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic include preventive and acute care. 

You might come to the office if you have symptoms of a vaginal, yeast, or urinary tract infection. Your provider can also evaluate symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease, such as irregular vaginal discharge, itching, or warts, and provide treatment.

If you have menstrual problems, such as severe cramping or heavy bleeding, or are nearing menopause, seek support from the compassionate providers at Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic. The team can help with strategies like hormone therapy or medications.

The team also provides annual pelvic exams to check the health of organs like your vagina and uterus and perform a Pap smear, an important screening test that checks for irregular cells that could lead to cervical cancer. 

You should also raise any health concerns, like pelvic pain or painful intercourse, during your women’s wellness and health visit. If you need more targeted care, the team can direct you to a trusted specialist. 

How does hormone therapy support women’s wellness and health?

Women and men are vulnerable to hormone changes as they age. Women, in particular, experience dramatic changes in their levels of estrogen and other hormones as they move through menopause.

Hormone fluctuations can lead to disruptive symptoms like:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Low sex drive
  • Reduced mental focus and memory
  • Joint and muscle aches and pain
  • Night sweats and hot flashes
  • Weight gain, especially in the midsection

The team at Babcock Health and Wellness Center offers BioTE® hormone pellet therapy as a solution. The pellets are placed just under your skin to release hormones as your body needs them to reduce or resolve symptoms.
