Women's Health

Specialized care from puberty, through the reproductive years to the golden years

As a woman, you have special healthcare needs that go beyond primary care. You need comprehensive care that includes gynecology, obstetrics, fertility, menopause, birth control and breast health. At IU Health, we provide specialized care for women at all stages of life – from puberty through the senior years. We take care of you, so you can be there to care for others. 

Our Approach to Women’s HealthSlice

Our teams of experienced healthcare providers – doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse educators, mammography technologists and others – are dedicated to helping to keep you as healthy as possible throughout your life. We’re also here to talk to you about caring for yourself, when you need guidance. 

From the time you enter puberty and need women-specific care, through your reproductive years and beyond, we provide the special care you need at every age and every stage. 

Our Services

Adolescent Care

Young women experience a variety of changes, both emotional and physical. Women’s health services geared specifically toward teens and young adults help you navigate this transitional time. Care you may need beginning in puberty includes:

  • Adolescent gynecology
  • Annual physical exams
  • Education about screenings, vaccinations and good health habits for life 
  • Fertility-sparing treatment in case of damage from radiation therapy for cancer
  • Birth control 

Reproductive Years

The reproductive years can be busy ones. Your career, possible motherhood and an active lifestyle all play a role in your physical health. It’s important to stay current with the care you need to stay healthy, including:

• Gynecological care
Birth control
Annual physical exams 
• Preconception care
• Fertility services
• Obstetrical care
Maternal fetal medicine for high-risk obstetrics and prenatal diagnostic services

Specialized breast imaging

Mature Years

When your reproductive years end, you still need healthcare that is specifically tailored for a woman’s needs. From menopause through postmenopause and for the rest of your life, you need regular healthcare, including:

  • Annual physical exams 
  • Gynecological care
  • Urogynecological care including urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic floor pain
  • Menopause services
  • Bone health services
