Specialists For Women To See By Decade

Via @HuffPostWomen

Between constantly changing guidelines and a range of varying opinions (even among docs themselves!), it can be tricky to keep track of the medical exams you really need — and when you need them.

Women are more likely than men to go to the doctor, but that doesn’t mean they’re getting better care. In fact, doctors are still likely to miss heart attacks in women, because the typical symptoms are different than those in men, and autoimmune disorders, more common in women than men, are notoriously hard to diagnose.

On the other hand, it’s also possible to overdo it at the doctor’s office. Earlier this year, research suggested docs may be ordering too many osteoporosis and ovarian cancer tests.

So how do you know when you should see a specialist? This infographic from Vitalspackages all the must-know info into one handy list.
