If you are a woman and you are concerned with your health, there is literally no time to waste. From cystocele to rectal prolapse, there are so many things that could go wrong, and many of them are very difficult to fix. Women, who do not have a primary care doctor, or a gynecologist, are much more likely to fall prey to fixable problems, especially those that are in more embarrassing areas – i.e. the vagina and rectum. Most women don’t want to talk to people about problems of that nature, and the result is usually not good – a painful infection, or even time in emergency care. The worst part is that both of those things can be prevented by setting up regular appointments and physicals with a primary care doctor, and also seeing a gynecologist about any woman issues you might be having.
If you are healthy and disease free, you are one of the lucky few. Most people out there have one or more STDs and some will undoubtedly suffer and possibly die from a disease that can be prevented or at least treated. One of the hardest things to come to terms with is family rejection as a result of diagnosis with an STD – this is one thing that dissuades people from visiting a doctor for diagnosis. Money is another issue, as well as denial or self-diagnosis, in which a person assumes that they have one problem, when in fact they are afflicted with something else that needs medical attention. This is a woman’s world, and it is her option to get good health care and live a fruitful life.
