Women have unique health issues. These unique issues include pregnancy, menopause, and conditions of the female organs. Some health issues that are common to both men and women affect women differently.
These are some of the health issues and their effects on women:
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States. Women are more likely to die following a heart attack than men are.
Women are more likely to show signs of depression and anxiety than men are. Depression is the most common women’s mental health problem, and more women than men are diagnosed with depression each year.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It causes joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. The condition affects affects more women than men.
Sexually transmitted diseases/sexually transmitted infections (STDs/STIs)
The effect of STDs/STIs on women can be more serious than on men. Untreated STDs/STIs cause infertility in women. STDs/STIs often go untreated in women because symptoms are less obvious than in men or are more likely to be confused with another less serious condition, such as a yeast infection.
More women than men suffer a stroke each year. Although many of the risk factors for stroke are the same for men and women, including a family history of stroke, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, some risk factors are unique to women. These include: taking birth control pills, being pregnant, using hormone replacement therapy, having frequent migraine headaches, having a thick waist, particularly if post-menopausal, and high triglyceride (blood fat) levels.
Urinary tract health
Women are more likely than men are to experience urinary tract problems. For example, urinary incontinence affects twice as many women as men due to the way the female urinary tract is structured.
