5 essential health tests for women at every stage of life

Health Checks for Women at Every Age and Stage of Life

March is Women’s Health Month, and it’s the perfect time to focus on prevention. We spoke with physicians from Pembroke Pines to Port St. Lucia to gather a comprehensive list of health checks for women at every age and stage of life.

Dr. Christopher Chang, a renowned physician in allergy and immunology at Joe DiMaggio Hospital in Pembroke Pines, emphasized the importance of looking beyond the checklist. If you are experiencing symptoms of recurrent infections such as pneumonia or unusual infections, further testing or referrals to a specialist may be necessary.

For women aged 18-39, it is recommended to undergo cervical cancer screening, PAP and HPV testing, screening for gonorrhea and chlamydia, screening for contraception or contraception counseling, and receive recommended immunizations. It’s also important to prioritize self-care practices such as regular exercise, healthy eating habits, getting enough sleep, and managing stress levels.

For women aged 40-65, important tests include breast cancer screening, colorectal cancer screening, glaucoma screening, melanoma screening
