About Your Health

Women today spend half their lives in menopause. Menopause is a natural transition but the loss of ovarian function heralds an acceleration of the aging process. In particular, menopausal women note cognitive dysfunction often describing difficulties with memory and focus. They may experience bone loss, cardiovascular disease and menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats.

Your provider has given you a prescription for birth control. Birth control pills and vaginal ring use can help improve menstrual cramps, reduce menstrual flow, help PMS, improve acne, regulate your periods, reduce your risk for ovarian and uterine cancer, relieve perimenopausal symptoms and prevent pregnancy.

The Pap test is known as a screening test because it helps identify people who need further evaluation. The Pap test can detect changes in the cells of the cervix at an early stage. For most women, a Pap test done each year starting at age 21 is the best screening method for finding changes in the cervix.
