About Women’s Health

Women’s health is a broad term referring to well-being of women in biological, psychological, and social health aspects, and does not only reflect the absence of disease in women.  Women’s health deals with the reproductive structures of women, including female genitalia, breasts, and a women’s reproductive system.  Women’s health also comprises hormonal changes specific to women that influence menstruation, conception, maternal health, child birth, menopause, and the growth of breast tissue.  Although some diseases affect both men and women, the manifestation of these diseases differs in women, such as osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.  Each of the above considerations represent an important element of women’s health care.
