Basic Health checklist for woman at age 40

Best Blogger Tips
All women need regular medical check us. As we are getting older.

  • Pap smear - once a year
         If you are active in sex life you must visit your ob-gyne. Cervical cancer was once the most common cause of cancer death among women. Thanks for the pap smear, that number has dropped by 75 percent over the past 40 years. Now that the vaccine for cervical cancer is available, grab this opportunity!

  • Cholesterol level-check every five years
         Without hormone replacement, a woman's risk of heart disease begins two to three years following menopause.

  •  Blood pressure check regularly
         Heart disease kills more than half a million women a year.

  •  Mammograms- yearly, beginning age 40
         One in nine women will develop breast cancer, but early detection can increase your chance to survive.
