Women's Health

Did you know that women are afflicted with depression and autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis three times more than men? Women often neglect their own health needs to prioritise their partnerís or childrenís health, but itís important to look after yourself too.

Multiple health problems such as heart disease, pernicious anaemia and an over- or under-active thyroid affect both men and women, but they often cause different symptoms in women. Other conditions such as menopause, osteoporosis, obesity and depression are however more common in women than they are in men.

Women are twice as likely as men to contract a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and are prone to more infections than men, such as bacterial vaginosis (BV). HIV is one of the top ten causes of death in women aged 25 to 55. Click here to view our range of discreet and accurate STI and HIV tests.
