So many health complications that affect women can also affect men, women’s health features set of issues. The most standout difference, but not one, is reproductive system, and this can be the nexus of many conditions, even if you do not have children or plan to have any in near future.

Women’s health isn’tsynchronous with obstetrics and gynecology. Women’s health also includes issues that affect the entire female body. Some conditions that aren’t exactly gender-specific affect women differently or more often than males. For example, women are at higher risk of:

  • Heart attacks, stastically hearth attacks are fatal for more women than men and affect women at a younger age than men on average, and become more likely after menopause
  • Mental health conditions, Women are susceptible to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, which are more commonly diagnosed in women
  • Sexually transmitted diseases(S.T.D), women are anatomically structured to be more likely candidate than men, often with more serious symptoms and complications
  • Osteoarthritis (O.A), women are biologically more prone to develop
  • Urinary tract infections, which are far more common among women than men
  • Bladder issues, such as overactive bladder, primarily affect older women
  • Irritable bowel syndrome, which is most prevalent among young women

As a woman, being aware of these risks and taking steps to prevent them will help you stay healthier in the long run.
