We provide tailored medical care to meet women’s unique health needs.
When you think of women’s health, you may immediately think of your annual visit with your gynecologist or a Pap smear, but women’s health encompasses much more. Here at nurse practitioner-led DelCare Health Solution in Wilmington, DE, Dr. Autherine Sterling, and Dr. Nadine Lindsay provide comprehensive and customized care to address the unique issues, concerns, and conditions that often impact women.
If you are dealing with sexual difficulties such as a loss of desire or pain with sex, our Wilmington, DE, health care team is run solely by women, which provides a safe and judgment-free environment to open up about sexual health and any concerns you might have. We can also refer you to an OBGYN or urologist for certain sexual dysfunction disorders.
While hormonal imbalances are synonymous with menopause, this doesn’t mean that this is the only time women may face hormonal problems. If you notice vaginal dryness, night sweats, hot flashes, chronic fatigue, brain fog, hair loss, or unexplained weight gain, these are all signs that your hormones may be out of whack. Fortunately, our Wilmington, DE, women’s health care team can provide the appropriate testing to determine what’s causing your hormonal issues and how to best manage them.
The American Heart Association reports that one woman every minute dies from heart disease in the US, making heart disease the leading cause of death. Despite these staggering statistics, there are ways to reduce your risk. Our team can go through this with you to understand your risk factors and provide customized recommendations to improve your diet, exercise, stress, alcohol consumption, and more to lower your risk. It’s also essential that you come in once a year for a comprehensive routine checkup so that you can detect irregularities or heart problems early on.
Cholesterol, Osteoporosis, and Glucose Levels
As we age, we are often more at risk for certain health problems, including high cholesterol, diabetes, and osteoporosis (a weakening of the bones that typically occurs during or after menopause). By turning to our team once a year for an annual physical, we can perform comprehensive bloodwork to keep tabs on your health and provide simple lifestyle recommendations to reverse or improve these levels to prevent the need for medications or other medical procedures down the road.
