Staying aware

With our hormones demanding so much of our attention, it may be hard to focus on other aspects of our physical health. But there are other important areas that we need to monitor.

In addition to seeing your healthcare provider regularly for pelvic exams and pap smears, having your cholesterol and blood pressure checked, and performing monthly self-breast exams, be sure to have the following tests done:

  • Mammogram
  • Colonoscopy
  • Total body skin examination
  • Fasting plasma glucose
  • Glaucoma test
  • Bone density testing
  • Thyroid hormone test
