Essential Health Screenings for Women

Many health problems are detected via preventative screenings—which ultimately improves outcomes. Women are at an increased risk for several conditions, but with education, motivation and help from your primary care provider, you can start the habits that make for a longer, healthier life.

In both women and men, the half-century mark—age 50—is a common milestone for testing and monitoring increased risk of stroke and heart disease. Women should be seeing their physician annually, at the very least, once they turn 50.

Speak with your doctor about the right method of screening for you. The age at which you begin screening depends on several things, including family history and your personal health profile. You and your doctor will decide which screening method is best for you. For information about the 10 things you can do to help live longer, live better, and live happier, read our Women’s Health Care Guidelines.
