The CDC observes both National Women’s Health Week and National Women’s Check-Up Day in May, highlighting the importance of women’s wellbeing in the nation’s overall health landscape. This month, we encourage women to prioritize their health and explore their local healthcare resources.
The expert team at the Tulane Center for Women’s Health provides comprehensive care for the challenges faced in every phase of a woman’s life. Specializing in the areas of general obstetrics and gynecology, maternal fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology and fertility, minimally invasive surgery, female pelvic and reconstructive surgery and gynecologic oncology, our Tulane Doctors operate on the belief that every woman not only has the right to good obstetric and gynecologic care, but that she is a partner in her care.
Tulane gynecologists offer the latest treatments and therapies for a wide range of services including pelvic pain and infections, family planning, incontinence, menopause treatment and more. They are skilled at employing minimally invasive surgery techniques and the use of robotic surgery. Tulane obstetricians provide care for women throughout their pregnancies, from fertility care, comprehensive prenatal evaluation and testing, to birthing plans and beyond.

Wellness is an integral component in living a fulfilling life, and while leading a healthy lifestyle contributes greatly to overall health, declining hormone levels as we age pose a unique threat. Women over 40 are particularly at risk for experiencing symptoms such as stress, anxiety, chronic fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, low libido, and mood swings due to declines in biochemical compositions.
