Men & Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women have a unique set of needs when it comes to health and wellness, and far too many women place those needs at the bottom of a seemingly never-ending to-do list. Reproductive health is a primary area of focus in women’s health care, and your needs will shift and change as you move through the phases of life. 

Some of the health issues that fall under the umbrella of women’s health include:

  • Birth control
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Infertility
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Postnatal care
  • Menopause
  • Sexual health

In addition to reproductive health issues, women also need special care when it comes to heart health, breast health, and stress management. Women’s health visits focus on providing the screenings and treatment you need to thrive and addressing needs as they arise. 

What is men’s health?

Many men are known to overlook their health needs, often only coming to see a doctor once a problem arises. Working with a primary care physician ensures you get the screenings and assistance you need to function at peak levels in all areas of your life. 

Some of the health issues that fall under the umbrella of men’s health include:

  • Infertility
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Prostate health
  • Heart disease
  • Depression
  • Liver disease
  • Low testosterone

Your needs will change as you age, but having a trusted doctor like Dr. Los to turn to can make it easier to get the care you need. 

How often do I need to come in for men’s or women’s health visits?

Most men and women benefit from coming in for an annual physical exam. These visits play a critical role in preventive health and give Dr. Los a chance to screen for various health issues and begin treatment as soon as possible. 

If you’re struggling with a chronic health condition you may need to come in more frequently, at least until your health improves. During your initial visit, Dr. Los can discuss the scheduling that is best for you and answer any questions you have about how to make the most of your health and wellness both through regular physicals and on your own at home. 

Scheduling a visit is as simple as a phone call or a quick visit to the online booking page, so make today the day you move one step closer to ideal health.
