Women’s Health is a section of medicine focused on people assigned female at birth. While everyone shares many of the same health risks, people assigned female at birth may experience some distinct health experiences and challenges, and some common conditions may affect people assigned female at birth differently.1

Women’s health includes, but is not limited to, cancers specific to people assigned female at birth, gynecological conditions, mammograms, and pregnancy and childbirth. Diagnosis and treatment of diseases combined with general health and wellness support are intended to improve the physical and emotional health of people assigned female at birth.2


What does women’s health include?

Women’s health broadly consists of treatment of conditions specific to people assigned female at birth, preventive care and screenings, reproductive and gynecological health support, childbirth and pregnancy, infertility, and more.2

These services are designed with the anatomy of people assigned female at birth in mind and take into account that health conditions sometimes affect people assigned female at birth differently from how they affect people assigned male at birth.1,2


What are some common women’s health services?

Women’s health services help patients address areas such as sexual health, osteoporosis, and menopause. Skilled women’s health providers can provide screening, treatment, and preventive services specific to the female anatomy, such as gynecological exams, infertility treatment, and pregnancy care.2

Women’s health may require a team of healthcare professionals, which can include primary care providers, obstetricians, gynecologists, and other clinicians.2

Pregnancy and the journey of motherhood should be a time of celebration and joy. However, for many Black women, these experiences are often overshadowed by the harsh realities they encounter within the healthcare system.
