Care for Women of All Ages at Penn Highlands

At each stage of life, women face health challenges unique to their gender, such as endometriosis, pregnancy, and menopause. But they also often have different health risks than men for conditions like heart disease and osteoporosis because of the role that estrogen and other hormones play in their overall health. Penn Highlands women’s health specialists, including gynecologists, oncologists, and specialists, offer a continuum of care for women from their teen years through menopause and beyond.

Women’s Health Services

Most women start seeing a gynecologist, a physician who specializes in women’s health, around the time of their first period or when they first become sexually active. In addition to preventive screenings, well-woman visits help establish a relationship between you and your doctor where you can feel comfortable talking about gynecologic issues like abnormal uterine bleeding, urinary incontinence, or concerns about pain during sexual intercourse.

Your gynecologist will help ensure good breast health with annual clinical breast exams and a personalized mammogram scheduling recommendation to detect breast cancer as early as possible.

In addition to general GYN care, our board-certified physicians and OB/GYN nurse practitioners provide care and counseling for women hoping to get pregnant. From contraceptive counseling to infertility treatments to prenatal and maternity care, they help women achieve a healthy pregnancy. And when the time comes, obstetricians and OB teams will be right there for you at our maternity units at Penn Highlands Dubois and Penn Highlands Elk to ensure a safe labor and delivery.

In your later years, our women’s health specialists can help you cope with the symptoms of menopause, manage your risk for osteoporosis, and provide additional senior women’s care.

Preventive and Diagnostic Screenings for Women

It’s important for women to commit to regular preventive screenings for things like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and bone density. In addition, screenings for cancers of the breast, cervix, and colon can help with early detection, making treatment more effective. Routine tests such as mammograms, Pap smears, colonoscopy, and bone density screenings are essential to good health.
