Bone density control – this examination allows to prevent osteoporosis and weaken bones (which is a consequence of estrogen deficiency and increases the risk of bone fractures). The risk group includes thin and fragile women and women with calcium deficiency. This is a simple overview. It is performed with an apparatus (densitometer) and lasts about 5 minutes. Bones can be strengthened with regular exercise and a diet rich in dairy products.
Breast control on the same day each month-Breast cancer is one of the most common diseases of women. It occurs without noticeable symptoms and unexpectedly. Treatment is successful if the disease is detected in time. With regular mammography (women over 45), breast cancer can be detected 2 years before the palpation phase. Examine your breasts once a month. Thus, any change in shape and appearance can be noticed. Perform the examination every same day every month for women during the monthly break from the cycle.
Examination of the digestive organs – these are endoscopic examinations that detect polyps or cancers at an early stage of development. They can then be removed without opening the abdomen. Gastroscopy provides insight into the condition of the stomach and duodenum. Colonoscopy controls the colon. Enteroscopy controls the small intestine. The examination is performed in outpatient clinics after preparation and under a light dose of anesthesia.
Gynecological examinations – regular check-ups are performed once a year. It includes examination of the cervix, secretions and ultrasound examination of the uterus. A woman’s ovaries do not work normally between the ages of 45 and 50. The woman begins to feel various ailments (insomnia, irritability, fatigue, frequent sweating and crying, etc.). In women, blood pressure varies from time to time before a break from the menstrual cycle (which is normal). Hair falls out. Skin and hair tone lose color. The gynecologist also refers to hormone testing and suggests therapy in accordance with the test results.
