There are common questions that we can answer about all health topics, such as "What is it?" and "How many people are affected." Answers to these questions are found under Condition Information. Each health topic frequently has specific questions that pertain only to that topic. We have answered those in this section.
During pregnancy, a woman’s prenatal care visits will include education and counseling about how to handle different aspects of pregnancy, the importance of good nutrition and physical activity, and what to expect during labor.
The screenings listed above are just a few of the many tests that women should seek throughout their lives. Some screenings, such as blood pressure and cholesterol checks and colonoscopies (to screen for colon cancer) are important for both men and women. Other screenings, such as tests conducted during pregnancy at regular prenatal visits, help protect the health, and could even save the lives, of the mother and her fetus as well as prevent complications during pregnancy and beyond.
