Women are usually the stronger of the two sexes. However, they are prone to a lot of ups and downs once they hit their late forties due the menopause. Menopausal women experience a great deal of health problems especially due to the hormonal changes that this period brings along. This is the time when other diseases creep up too, such as heart disease, infertility, osteoporosis, uterine fibroids, fibromyaglia, cervical cancer, breast cancer and so on.
Why Women’s Health Care Specialist is Recommended
In ordinary circumstances, women are okay with the regular medical practitioner and medical care. However, when age advances a women’s health care specialist would be a better choice (and recommended) as such a professional will be able to provide the right guidance to what tests a woman should do when and what special care a woman needs to maintain good health.
Besides the medical attention, the women’s health care specialist would be able to focus on the mental make-up and upheavals that menopause inflicts on women. This is a difficult time for women not only because their bodies seem to have a mind of their own, but also because they are prone to heavy depression bouts, excitability, mood swings and feeling of hopelessness which does not help in any way the overall situation.
Many times the hormonal changes are so drastic that these cause acute and even suicidal depression. When and if such times are coupled with any of the diseases mentioned a bit earlier, it kind of overwhelms the women. The role of the women’s health care specialist is here to keep women healthy physically as well as take care that they receive sufficient and adequate counseling to equip them to handle the difficulties that the menopausal period brings along.
The women’s health care specialist hence plays a dual role – one of a healer and the other of an adviser. Both the roles are important because women tend to neglect their own health till it is too late. It is as important for women to know why they are suffering as what would cure them. During the middle age, there are a lot of ‘whys’ that disturb women’s peace of mind.
Questions such as, ‘why do I feel like crying all day long?’, ‘why am I so angry all the time?’, ‘why do I feel that I have do be on my toes the whole day long?’, ‘why do I feel so lost and hopeless?’ plague the minds of women in their late forties. These questions affect women much more than any disease and this is where and when the women’s health care specialist is needed most.
