Unique Care for Women in Frederick County

Women have unique healthcare needs that are important to overall health and well-being. Everyday stressors like work or childcare can take their toll on physical and mental health. Frederick Health is committed to identifying and addressing the health and wellness needs of all women. Our services help women of any age and health status promote, maintain, and restore their health.

How Are Women’s Health Needs Unique?

There are many medical conditions that exist only in women, and some common illnesses affect women differently. For example, heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in America—but the warning signs in women are often subtle and misdiagnosed. These conditions require specialized care.

Some of the medical conditions uniquely affecting women are:

  • Pregnancy
  • Postpartum depression
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Menopause
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Menstruation / menstrual irregularities
  • Vaginitis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Vulvodynia
  • Breastfeeding
  • Turner syndrome
  • Rett syndrome

Preventive Healthcare

We have screenings and tests are available for different stages of a woman’s life to detect severe and chronic conditions early. You can receive immunizations and preventive medical treatments at your yearly checkups. That’s also a good time to bring up issues you may be experiencing or have concerns about. Your doctor can answer your questions and provide you with necessary care.
