You touch so many lives as you go about your day. Your partner, your kids, your parents, and your friends all look to you for your love, support, and just being there for them. Your good health is a priceless gift you give to everyone in your life and, above all, to yourself.
It’s important for every woman of every age to form a partnership with a trusted health care provider early on. It could be an OB/GYN (obstetrician/gynecologist), a certified nurse midwife, or a nurse practitioner. We encourage you to think of your health care partner as your “wellness guide” who will be by your side whenever you need advice, support or compassionate care.
If you’re sexually active and/or older than 18, protect yourself with gynecological exams. Regular check ups are the best way to catch conditions at their earliest stages when treatment is most effective.
It’s your body, but lots of people are counting on you to take very good care of yourself.
