Women’s Health Q & A

What specific health concerns affect women?

Some health concerns are specific to women, such as pregnancy, menopause, and reproductive issues. Other health conditions affect women differently than men.

The female-specific health concerns Dr. Singleton addresses include:

  • Incontinence
  • Infections (urinary tract and yeast infections)
  • Hormone disruptions
  • Breast issues (mastitis, breast cancer, etc.)
  • Infertility
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Cervical and ovarian cancers

Women are more likely than men to die from a heart attack and more apt to show signs of depression and anxiety. Dr. Singleton considers these sex-specific issues when caring for women.

What are the typical women’s health services?

Dr. Singleton offers preventive care, health screenings, and medical treatment for female-specific health concerns.

Health screenings

Dr. Singleton treats many of the health conditions listed above, but he can refer you to the proper specialist when necessary. With his background in family medicine and his mostly female clientele, he provides comprehensive women’s health care services.

Dr. Singleton also offers a variety of aesthetic services for women, including dermal fillers, laser skin procedures, hair removal, microneedling, and vaginal rejuvenation.

How can women protect their health?

Many of your risk factors for disease are avoidable with healthy lifestyle habits. Dr. Singleton promotes a preventive approach that includes the following:

  • Avoid smoking: quit or don’t start smoking and avoid secondhand exposure
  • Perform breast self-exams: conduct a monthly hands-on assessment to detect breast changes
  • Eat a healthy diet: focus on produce, whole grains, fiber, and lean protein
  • Exercise: work 30 minutes of fitness into most days
  • Lose excess weight: maintain a healthy BMI
  • Relieve stress: manage tension with relaxing activities

One of the best ways to prevent disease is to schedule your routine exams with Dr. Singleton and discuss your health concerns with him. To schedule a well-woman exam, call the number listed or click the “book now” button.
