Women’s Health

From pregnancy issues to vaginal gynecological problems, Village Emergency Centers are ready to handle all emergencies related to female reproductive health.


What Is Women’s Health Care?

Women’s health care is focused on issues that specifically affect women and female reproductive health. Women’s health care is specialized and centered on caring for women and their unique needs.

The Village Emergency Centers provides a variety of diagnostic testing and treatments for women who have:

  • Pregnancy issues
  • Gynecological problems, including vaginal bleeding
  • Cardiovascular issues
  • Complications from cancer, including breast cancer
  • Sexually-transmitted infections
  • Vaginal or urinary tract infections

This list represents an overview of the myriad of health problems that women face.

What Women’s Health Problems May Require Emergency Care?

Women face a number of emergency health issues that fall under any of the categories listed above. More specifically, these problems include:

  • Ruptured ovarian cysts
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Endometriosis
  • Miscarriage
  • Ectopic pregnancies
  • Complications due to gestational diabetes
  • Heart attack or stroke

Again, this list only represents some of the issues that require emergency care. If there’s any question as to whether you should seek immediate medical care, please call Village ER for guidance.

What Are the Symptoms of a Heart Attack in Women?

About one in three women die annually in the United States because of heart disease or stroke. One of the biggest problems is that women often have symptoms that present differently than they do in men. To better understand the issue, here are most common signs of a heart attack in women:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Pain in one or both arms, or in the neck, jaw, back, or abdomen
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • A pressure or squeezing sensation in the chest

While these are largely the same symptoms that men experience, women may feel dizziness and lightheadedness, without feeling any pressure in their chests, which is the most common symptom associated with heart attacks. All too often, a woman is unaware that she’s having a problem until it’s too late, because heart attacks are most often associated with chest pains.

The bottom line is that if you’re experiencing any combination of the above symptoms, you should seek immediate care at Village Emergency Centers, any time of day or night.
