Women of all ages should be aware of their breasts and report any changes to their healthcare provider. Clinical breast exams are recommended for women aged 50-74 years every 2 years. Women aged 40-49 and over 75 years of age can also have a clinical breast exam if they wish, after discussing the potential benefits and limitations with their healthcare provider.

In Australia, the National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) recommends that women have a Pap smear every 5 years from the age of 25 to 74. If you have a history of abnormal Pap smears, your doctor may recommend more frequent testing.

Menopause is the natural end of a woman's menstrual cycle. It usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, but it can happen earlier or later. There are a number of signs and symptoms that can indicate that a woman is going through menopause, including:

  • Irregular or missed periods.
  • Hot flashes.
  • Night sweats.
  • Vaginal dryness.
  • Mood swings.
  • Fatigue.
  • Difficulty sleeping.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should talk to your doctor. They can help you determine if you are going through menopause and recommend treatment options, if necessary.

Yes, HSV is a sexually transmitted disease. It is caused by the herpes simplex virus, which can infect the genitals, mouth, or other parts of the body. There are two types of HSV: HSV-1 and HSV-2. HSV-1 is most commonly associated with cold sores, while HSV-2 is most commonly associated with genital herpes.

HSV can be transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. It can also be transmitted from mother to child during childbirth. There is no cure for HSV, but there are treatments that can help to reduce the symptoms and frequency of outbreaks.

Breast checks are an important part of early detection of breast cancer. Women should start checking their breasts for lumps or changes at the age of 20. After the age of 50, women should have a mammogram every two years.

Here are some tips for breast checks:

  • Stand in front of a mirror and look at your breasts for any changes in size, shape, or colour.
  • Raise your arms above your head and look for any changes.
  • Lie down on your back and use your opposite hand to feel your breasts.
  • Pay attention to any lumps, bumps, or changes in texture.

If you find any changes in your breasts, it is important to see a doctor right away. Early detection and treatment of breast cancer can improve the chances of a successful outcome.
