Women’s health refers to the gender-specific complexities of your health as a woman. Your reproductive system and sexual health are vastly different from a man’s, so you need specific care to address those health concerns.
Women uniquely go through menopause during middle age. Sometime around your mid-40s, your menstrual cycle stops as you lose the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. This can result in a myriad of symptoms like hot flashes, cold sweats, insomnia, and mood swings. If they affect your life significantly, the team at Mark Baravik Family Practice can help.
