Womens Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing health issues that affect women. Michigan Avenue Primary Care is a multispecialty practice that provides all the services you need under one roof, including comprehensive women’s health care.

The experienced and dedicated providers take a patient-centered approach to health. They work closely with you, talking to you about your health and helping you make decisions about treatments and therapies that fit your needs and lifestyle.

What are common issues that affect women’s health?

Many issues affect women’s health. However, women experience specific health problems because of their reproductive organs. These include uterine fibroids, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and menopause.


Women’s reproductive organs also place them at greater risk of developing gynecological cancers like breast cancer, cervical cancer, and endometrial cancer.


Other conditions that affect women’s health include:


  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Pelvic pain
  • Painful periods
  • Skin problems
  • Sleep problems
  • Urinary problems
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Low libido (low sex drive)


Michigan Avenue Primary Care is equipped to manage any of these health concerns.
