During this stage, it is important to take charge of your fertility and care for it. Take note of your menses, especially if they have been irregular, abnormally heavy or cause pain. Also, you can reduce the risks of vaginal and pelvic infections by taking good care of your perineal hygiene. Check with a certified gynaecologist for contraceptive advice and available female health screening.
Perhaps the busiest stage of a woman’s life, a woman in her 30s should take note of possible risks of endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory diseases or infertility, and take steps to prevent and treat these conditions. Regular health check-ups with your gynaecologist also helps to build a strong relationship with your gynae, where she can better understand your needs and concerns.
As you move towards mid-life, it is a good time to make sure that you will be free from degenerative illnesses in future. Many women in this age group are at increased risks of breast cancer, cervical abnormalities, fibroids and ovarian cysts. A comprehensive health screening can help detect any abnormalities, thereby ensuring timely and effective treatment.
In this postmenopausal stage, a woman may want to focus on keeping herself youthful and healthy to enjoy the fruits of her labour—spending time with her children and grandchildren, travel and experience new things etc. Going for regular health screenings, together with a good diet and exercise plan, is essential to building up our immunity and staying strong and fit.
