Women’s health is an area of medicine that focuses on the unique health needs of women. The stages of a woman’s life center on her reproductive organs, starting with her first period and ending with menopause.
Your reproductive organs influence your health and increase your risk of developing certain health conditions, like breast cancer and cervical cancer.
At Elam Health and Wellness, Dr. Opusunju specializes in women’s health. Taking a holistic approach to care, she not only focuses on your reproductive health, but your overall health and well-being. She evaluates your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.
The details of your women’s health exam at Elam Health and Wellness depend on your age, current health concerns, and medical history.
Dr. Opusunju may first spend time talking to you about your current health issues and symptoms. She then reviews your gynecological, medical, and family histories, and performs a physical exam.
During your annual women’s health exam, Dr. Opusunju also performs various health screenings, such as:
Depending on your age and history, she may also suggest a mammogram to screen for breast cancer, colon cancer screening, or a bone density test for osteoporosis.
Dr. Opusunju may run lab work to check hormone levels for women experiencing symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, mood changes, and fatigue.
After your exam, Dr. Opusunju customizes your women’s health treatment plan to address your current health needs and reduce your risk of future health problems. Your plan may include:
Dr. Opusunju also provides chronic disease management for women who have long-term health conditions, such as diabetes or hypertension. Additionally, she has advanced training in psychology and provides specialized care to support your emotional and mental health needs.
