Health is wealth and to welcome 2017 with a bang it’s wise to set aside some time and budget for health exams and screenings. One of the best resolution we should all commit to this year is to keep ourselves healthy. With this in mind, here are the 5 must-do lists from Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liners’ OB-Gyn Faith Suluen this 2017:
- Pap Smear and Pelvic Exam
It’s essential to catch early any possible abnormal growth whether you’re sexually active by age 21 or the disease runs in the family.
Quick screening test/procedure and the gold standard that detects precancerous or cancerous cells from papillomavirus or HPV.
- Transvaginal ultrasound
Make sure that your reproductive system (uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, and vagina) is on its tip-top shape.
Highly recommended for checking irregularities or possible cysts, pelvic pain, unexplained vaginal bleeding and more, the ultrasound probe allows the doctor to see a bird’s eye view of the organs with more accurate results.
- Mammogram and Breast Ultrasound
Breast cancer may be considered as one of the leading causes of death among women globally, however it’s totally curable and controllable with the help of early detection and regular screening.
Both mammogram (for 40 years old and above) and breast ultra sound (for 40 years old and below) is powerful tools even before a woman experiences its symptoms, so consider these tests as your major partners in prevention and to ensure full mammary health throughout your lifetime.
- Blood Chemistry Test
Make a point to regularly monitor blood pressure and cholesterol, which are lifesavers from heart disease and stroke.
Remember that the tender age of 20 should be a starting point of your biannual blood pressure monitoring habit with cholesterol checking every four to six years, but perhaps more frequently if age, weight, lifestyle habits, and family history are major factors of developing your risks.
- Routine Urinalysis
Even if you don’t feel any abdominal or back pain and abnormalities in your urine, this is a preventive test that will keep your urinary system at the pink of their health.
Considered as one of the simplest yet most powerful screening tests that detect UTI, kidney disorders, liver problems, and diabetes, it also helps to diagnose specific disorders such as endocrine diseases and bladder cancer.
Also, be finicky about your sanitary pads, choose quality and consider a brand that can do more for you, like Jeunesse Anion.
Its anion strip feature is uniquely on its own that greatly helps in reducing feminine discomforts like dysmenorrhea, cramps, and icky odor, consider this to be one of your most valuable essentials as a smart and wellness-conscious woman.
Remember ladies, health and wellness is important and should be our top priority all year, every year.
