Quality Care For Women In Our Community
Women are the heart of a family, and they represent the cornerstone of a family’s overall health. The health of everyone is significantly influenced by the physical and mental well-being of the women in their families. However, because of the different roles women play, they often neglect their own health. As the famous slogan “Healthy Women, Healthy World” emphasises the importance of women’s health, we have made women’s health a top priority in our practice.

Whether you are looking for an overall health checkup or any specific problem is troubling you, the experienced GPs working at our women’s health centre can offer you highly trusted medical advice on a broad range of common issues and help you improve your physical and emotional well being during all stages of your life.
Women’s Health Services At Penrith Medical And Fitness Centre
Reproductive System Health
A women’s reproductive system is a delicate and complex system in the body. It is essential that you take appropriate steps to ensure your safety and prevent certain illnesses. However, many female reproductive problems are on the rise these days, and the GPs practising at our women’s health clinic in Penrith can help you with most of these problems, including;
Regular periods indicate that your body is functioning normally. You should have a regular menstrual cycle unless you are breastfeeding, pregnant, postmenopausal, or have an illness that causes your periods to stop. Painful, irregular, or heavy periods can be signs of a severe health problem. Irregular periods can also make it harder to get pregnant. If issues with your menstrual cycle are affecting your life, you can get help and support at our women’s health clinic in Penrith. Different problems with the menstrual cycle can include painful periods (dysmenorrhea), absent periods (amenorrhea), heavy periods (menorrhagia), infrequent periods (oligomenorrhea) etc. You can also get in touch with us to manage premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or menopause.
Good mental health is required for your overall well-being. Mental health problems are unique in women, especially those that occur at times of hormone change, such as premenstrual dysphoric disorder, perinatal depression or perimenopause-related disorder. Depression and anxiety occur more in women than men. If you are experiencing any problem and you are unsure where to go for help, talking with your primary healthcare provider can be your first step. At the Medical and Fitness Centre, expert psychiatrists and psychologists are practising to provide you with the specialised care you need. They use various techniques and medications when needed to treat a broad range of mental health problems in women.
Regular prenatal care (before birth) and postpartum checkups (after birth) are a very important part of every pregnancy. They involve treatments and training to ensure a healthy pregnancy, labour and delivery for mother and child. Women’s health specialists working at Medical and Fitness Centre can help you with;
