30s: In Your Prime

Kids. Work. Home responsibilities. The 30s are a juggling act for many women. It's all too easy to let a ball drop — and often that means less attention to your health.

At this busy time, though, taking care of yourself will help you take care of all those other things, too. Focus on good eating and exercise habits, stress management, and preventive care. Regular wellness visits can help you stay on track.

Be aware of your mental health. Many women will suffer from depression or anxiety at some point in their lives. Talk with your doctor; these conditions can be successfully treated.

In these sexually active years, it's important to continue practicing safe sex, and to evaluate your contraception choices. If you're ready for a pregnancy, you'll also want to know how to prepare your body for the best experience. 
If you're working outside the home, and happen to be sidelined by a work-related injury, you'll be happy to know that our Occupational Health team is on top of the latest medical advancements and treatments.

Prevention continues to be important. That means keeping on track with preventive screenings such as Pap tests and pelvic exams, taking steps to protect your skin from sun damage, and building your bone health. Strong bones will protect you from injuries and keep you active into your 40s, 50s, and beyond.
