Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health covers all the problems that affect or stem from the female reproductive system — your uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, vagina, and vulva. It also encompasses conditions more commonly affecting women than men, like urinary incontinence and osteoporosis (loss of bone density).

Healthkey Group Fertility takes a holistic approach to women’s health. The team considers all the factors that contribute toward your health, such as age, diet, exercise, stress, and living environment. They create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the causes of your symptoms.


What conditions can affect women’s health?

Problems women can experience include:

  • Irregular menstruation
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Dysmenorrhea (painful periods)
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

Many women experience issues during perimenopause and menopause, when they stop producing eggs and no longer have periods. You can start having symptoms in your forties that last for many years, including hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness.

Infertility is also a problem for some women. Being unable to conceive a child is heartbreaking when you want to start a family, and there are many ways the Healthkey Group Fertility team can help you achieve your dream.


What treatments might I need for women’s health problems?

Healthkey Group Fertility offers various effective treatments for women’s health problems, including:


Acupuncture is a proven treatment that involves having very fine needles inserted into the skin. It improves the flow of Qi or Chi (life force energy) through your body. Acupuncture can help with dysmenorrhoea, morning sickness, PMS, fertility, and many other women’s health problems.


Herbal medicine

Herbal medicine improves organ function and blood flow, helping ease symptoms of irregular menstruation, PMS, and menopause. Healthkey Group Fertility has its own herbal remedy range, including blends for infertility, menopause, breast care, menstrual conditions, uterine fibroids, and ovarian cysts.


Meridian massage

Meridian massage is another form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that your provider may use in combination with herbal medicine and acupuncture. It helps with full body relaxation, treating stress, insomnia, constipation, and musculoskeletal disorders, as well as women’s health problems.
