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?”
