Women have unique health issues. And some of the health issues that affect both men and women can affect women differently.

Unique issues include pregnancymenopause, and conditions of the female organs. Women can have a healthy pregnancy by getting early and regular prenatal care. They should also get recommended breast cancer, cervical cancer, and bone density screenings.

  • Women are more likely to show signs of depression and anxiety than men.
  • The effects of sexually transmitted diseases can be more serious in women.
  • Osteoarthritis affects more women than men.
