Women tend to take care of everyone and everything, except themselves. Taking good care of your personal health will keep you healthy for those you love. Primary and preventive health care is critical to long-term health and in many cases, can help a woman and her provider detect minor issues before they become serious.
Women of all ages should make sure routine physical exams are scheduled, including complete gynecological examinations, which may begin as early as ages 13-16, depending on her individual situation and her doctor’s recommendation. Mammograms should begin at age 40 unless family history or other risk factors indicate a mammogram should be scheduled sooner. Talk to your doctor about your family history so we can help you make the best decisions for you.
