Health is an issue that affects everyone. However, people who have female reproductive organs can face different health issues than people who don’t. Even common health problems across genders, such as heart attacks, can look different in women than in men. We have compiled a list of resources that would be helpful for people of any age. 



This government-run resource has female-specific health information and topics. It breaks down health issues and topics into short, easy to understand sections such as “What is it?” “What causes it?” and “How can it be treated?”  


American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology FAQ

Provides brief, basic answers on commonly asked questions about reproductive health, pregnancy, birth control, and various common gynecological problems. It also includes a section for transgendered teens that would be helpful to transgendered adults as well. 


Women’s Health Page on Medline Plus

This resource has a plethora of information on female-specific health issues, as well as access to statistics, professional journal articles, and information on clinical trials. This website is available in Spanish as well as English. 


Don’t forget to check out the library’s catalog for books and resources on female-specific health information and more general health information!
