RMHP is committed to helping young women stay healthy and active. Making good lifestyle choices is the best thing you can do to stay healthy. The choices you make can help you feel better now and prevent health problems later.
You should see your doctor regularly for preventive health care. This can help find problems early or prevent health problems before they occur. Preventive health care includes exams and screening tests that look for problems even before you are sick. It also includes immunizations, which help to prevent some diseases.
There are some problems that are more likely to cause sickness at certain times of your life. For this reason, preventive care is based on a person's age and risk factors.
You and your doctor can work together to plan how you can have a healthy lifestyle, decrease your risk factors, and prevent disease. Together, you can watch for sign of problems that are common in women in your age group. If problems are found early, they may be easier to treat and less likely to pose serious risks to your health.
