Top 5 Health Mistakes Women Make

There are instances when women visit their doctor’s office for a checkup, yet after the process, these women would still feel lost and misunderstood. Ladies, have you ever encountered this situation? If you are unaware of it, yes, it could happen and most of the time this could be prevented.

Women would feel voiceless and paralyzed once they are inside the doctor’s office. Even women who are well bred and with promising careers suffer from this problem. These mistakes should not be taken for granted—especially because it involves health care.

Here are the five mistakes that most women are guilty of:

1. Women don’t question doctors. Women do not ask their doctors the right questions. It is natural for most women to feel intimidated, especially if the doctor is a male. The difference in power and authority often makes a woman vulnerable and child-like. If you are in such a state, it is best to take someone with you who would ask the necessary questions, especially those questions that you are afraid or embarrassed to ask. You could also talk to your doctor afterward and tell him the things you did not understand about what he just told you. The doctor may have been using jargons while he was talking to you. It is just right that you speak up and tell him so. That way, he could slow down and explain to what’s going on.

2. Women tend to over-research. It is more likely for women to search and look up health information online. This method might have benefits, but it is not altogether    the best. Women are more inclined to make themselves believe that they have health problems when in fact they don’t. If you are among such women, it is advised that      you narrow down all your researches and instead focus on the main and more important points. Then with the organized information you have, ask your doctors anything       that bothers you. This is more coherent than having a lot of printouts, and it saves you time.

4. Women interpret their own symptoms. It is normal for the women to just neglect the facts, interpret their conditions, and make their own diagnosis. This could put    their health at risk. It is good for you to just state the facts and let the doctors do their job. Let them have their own interpretations and diagnosis. But if you have    questions, don’t hold back. There are times that you are probably right, but it is still best to trust in the professional’s interpretation.

5.Women don’t trust their intuition. This is considered the mother of all mistakes. As said earlier, if you think that the doctor’s interpretation is incorrect, step up and   tell him or her so. After all, it is your health at risk here.
