Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health is a branch of medicine that diagnoses, treats, and prevents health problems in women. Men and women experience many of the same health issues, but their unique reproductive systems put them at risk of certain gender-specific complications. 

Scheduling a women’s health appointment presents an opportunity to check in with your primary care physician. You can also undergo preventive screenings, determine the underlying cause of unusual symptoms, and take steps to improve your energy levels and longevity. 

What are some common women’s health services?

New York Specialty Clinics provides various women’s health services onsite, including:

Breast health and mammography

As you get older, you’re also more likely to develop breast cancer. Regular cancer screening, including mammography, can detect potentially serious problems early on when they respond best to treatment.


Gynecology is a branch of women’s health focused on the reproductive system. This includes diagnosing and treating diseases that affect the cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, vagina, and vulva. 

Integrative medicine

New York Specialty Clinics offers several types of integrative medicine to promote mental health and reduce stress. Your provider might recommend acupuncture, aromatherapy, or massage. These treatments are non-invasive and drug-free, ensuring your comfort and safety. 

Mental health and addiction services

If you’re living with a mental illness like substance use disorder (SUD), depression, anxiety, or bipolar, you might benefit from mental health services. Your provider can prescribe medication, or they can refer you to a counselor or psychologist in the area.

Pelvic health and incontinence

Many women 65 and older, experience urinary incontinence. If you regularly urinate due to coughing, sneezing, or strenuous exercise, don’t wait to seek professional help. There are a variety of treatments, including pelvic exercises and medication that can help improve your symptoms.


Obstetrics is a branch of women’s health focused on pregnancy and giving birth. New York Specialty Clinics works with mothers of all ages, providing care for healthy and high-risk pregnancies.

Weight management

As you get older, your metabolism slows down, and your hormones fluctuate. This often results in weight gain or difficulty losing weight. Medically supervised weight management can help you shed pounds and keep them off in a healthy, natural way. 

How often should I participate in women’s health?

New York Specialty Clinics recommends you participate in a women’s health appointment at least once a year. Even if you feel relatively healthy, it’s still important to check-in. 

Many serious health problems present few obvious symptoms, including high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Regular check-ups can alert you to potential issues before they get worse.
