Women's Health and Men's Health

When it comes to men and women, there are some significant differences when it comes to how the body processes, matures and develops over time. The concerns that both men and women face throughout their lives are vast, especially when it comes to reproductive health and body function. But, just how different are these genders from one another? Usually, when it comes to the way the body works, much of the systems involved are the same, such as digestion, hormone production, and brain chemistry, but if looked at a bit more closely, they are, in fact, different from one another in ways you wouldn’t expect it.

What are the Key Differences between Women and Men’s health?

Separate Screenings  

One of the most immediate dissimilarities between men and women is that their health determines the type of screenings they need to have to maintain and understand their health. Women need to have selections for cervical cancer, PAP tests, and HPV from the age of 21 onward, while men require screenings for prostate cancer when they’re in their 40’s onwards. Breast cancer screenings seem to be the only commonality between these two genders, and other forms of screenings even if they’re testing for the same illness, still take in the factors of these two genders into consideration.

Reactions to Illnesses 

Heart attacks, while the condition is the same, is experienced differently. For women, they can experience different symptoms, such as soreness in the breasts. For men, the symptoms can appear much quicker and more prominently, such as shortness of breath and sharp pain in the arm. Women and men also experience diabetes differently. Women experience diabetes by developing yeast infections as a result of an imbalanced pH, while men tend to experience diabetes with the usual symptoms.

Wide Ranges of Doctors

Obviously, women and men have to see different doctors for various parts of their health when it comes to certain parts of the body. Women need to see an OB/GYN for their reproductive health, while men don’t need to. Women need to start visiting the OB/GYN as early as 13 to 15 years old, once they begin developing their period. Men, on the other, would have to see doctors such as proctologist, a doctor that specializes in men’s health, specifically regarding the prostate.
