Women’s health

Women’s health

Women are special as they can do unique things that a male cannot. A woman can give birth to a baby, which is a great moment for any individual.

Menstruation and menopause are two natural stages in a woman’s life. These alterations mark the beginning and end of fertility. Women’s mental and physical health demands are diverse and complicated, changing with age, fertility, and our surroundings. The majority of our doctors are interested in women’s health.

There are some major issues that might impact women’s health right from their birth to old age.


Menstruation is commonly called a period and is what adolescent girls and women of childbearing age usually experience as a blood flow from the vagina. A build-up of blood causes it on the womb’s lining (uterus) in response to hormones.

Periods usually last between 3–7 days, with the blood flow usually starting heavy and getting lighter during this time. Most girls or women get their period once a month, but anywhere between every 3 and 6 weeks is normal.


Menopause is a normal event in a woman’s life and occurs when the menstrual cycle stops permanently.

Menopause can be an unsettling time, depending on your symptoms, but some women go through menopause without any problems.

Most women reach menopause between 45 and 55. However, there is no set age or duration for menopause, and symptoms vary.

Cervical screening

Regular cervical screening is your best protection against cervical cancer.
You need to have a cervical screening test if you:
  • are aged between 25 and 74
  • are a woman or a person with a cervix
  • have ever been sexually active.

  • It makes no difference if you:
  • have had the HPV vaccination or not
  • are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or straight
  • are no longer sexually active
