Women’s Health

No matter the stage in a woman’s life, engaging with your doctor for a preventative health approach is vital for ongoing wellness and the early detection of medical issues.

Besides health issues that are commonly shared with men, there are certain health issues that are specific to women alone, including gynaecological health, pregnancy, and cancers of the breast, ovaries and cervix. There are also some conditions that women are at a higher risk of developing at later stages of their life including osteoporosis, dementia or Alzheimer’s disease

There are a variety of factors that may make women vulnerable to certain health issues, including age, social history, family history, previous disease diagnoses and past history, genetic and lifestyle factors.

At Infinity Health Medical Centre, we understand the importance of maintaining a good level of health and wellness, especially in our current climate that has us leading lives as busy as ever. Our facilities have been designed to alleviate some of these concerns by providing a comfortable and safe environment for women of all ages and beliefs.

Cervical Screening

Cervical cancer affects the cervix, a part of the uterus connecting to the vagina. It’s primarily caused by persistent infection with high-risk strains of the human papillomavirus, with factors like smoking and multiple sexual partners increasing risk. It progresses gradually, starting with precancerous changes in cervix cells (dysplasia or CIN), potentially leading to invasive cancer if undetected. Symptoms include discomfort during intercourse, vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, and abnormal discharge. Regular screening is vital due to the difficulty in detecting abnormalities.

Screening aims to detect precancerous changes early to facilitate timely treatment, reducing mortality rates. Methods include Pap smear, which examines cervix surface cells under a microscope, and HPV testing, detecting high-risk HPV strains associated with cervical cancer.
