Why do I need to see an OB/GYN when I'm in my 50s?
Julie Ladocsi, MD, Obstetrics & Gynecology, answered on behalf of Johnston-Willis Hospital - HCA VirginiaIt is important to see an obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) when you are in your 50s. Your OB/GYN will continue to focus on breast health with annual screening mammograms and clinical breast exams. Colorectal screening begins in earnest in this decade, as well as management of perimenopausal and menopausal physical changes. For some women, urinary health can also be an issue, and your doctor will address that as necessary.
How do women feel pain?
Howard S. Smith, Pain Medicine, answeredResearchers believe that for women, pain is in the nerves. For instance, in a study in which men and women are subjected to the same irritant, women usually give it a higher pain rating. When pain is chronic or long-term, women usually report insomnia, daytime sleepiness, irritability, appetite loss, muscle weakness, and depression. All of these can make it difficult, if not impossible, to do your daily tasks, including caring for your family and working outside the home.
