Women’s Health

Women’s health is an area of medicine that centres around health issues specifically related to women. Although there is usually an emphasis on obstetrics, gynaecology and gynaecological problems, women’s health related issues can range from problems concerning menstruation, maternal health and child birth, to menopause and female predominated cancers, such as breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

womens-health As female medical practitioners, we at Dr CG Du Plessis & Partners have a special concern for women’s health. We recognise that men and women are fundamentally different, not only in terms of anatomy.

Studies have shown considerable differences between men and women with regards to their susceptibility, symptoms and response to treatment in many sections of health, including heart disease and some particular cancers.

We believe that as women we have unique needs and requirements, both physically and emotionally. For this reason, we strive to provide an individualised approach to women’s health.

We offer the following medical services in relation to women’s health:

  • Full gynaecological assessments

  • Pap smear as well as new liquid cytology and testing for Human Papiloma Virus (HPV)

  • Breast examinations

  • Contraception

  • Management of menopause

  • Sexual health and libido

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Skin and aesthetic health

Further tests may be ordered by our medical doctors to ensure the general health of women and include the following:

  • Mammogram if over 35 years, repeat every 5 years.

  • Bone density, if post-menopausal

  • ECG, if post-menopausal or cardiovascular risk (see above)

  • Full blood count

  • Kidney function

  • Liver function

  • Cholesterol (must be done fasting)

  • Thyroid function

  • Ultrasound and further imaging
