8 Self-Checks Every Woman Should Do

Taking care of yourself physically is a big part of self-care that every woman should spend some time into. Take considerations to look out for certain symptoms inside and out for the benefit of no one other than yourself.

1. STI test. 

Unless you have been with the same partner for a long time you should have a yearly sexual health screening. No signs doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have an STI.

2. Breast test. 

You just need a mammogram depending on your age and family history but you have to self-check your breasts once in a while enough to know what’s normal and be aware on how to spot changes.

3. Check your skin. 

Regular self-exams can prevent skin cancer and is especially essential for people with multiple moles,fair skin, red hair or a cancerous/precancerous history. Dark rough patches under the underarms may signify diabetes.

4. Dental checkup. 

You can’t do this yourself so go to the dentist at least once every year. If you have issues with your teeth this number might increase. Dental checkups provide preventative care as well scoping out any current issues.

5. Check your nails 

We are not only talking a manicure check look out for dark lines on your nail bed or black, yellow, and brown stripes that signify cell damage and possibly melanoma.

6. Eye test. 

After the age of 40 the risk of developing further problems with sight increases but with all the blue light our generation looks at we should still be getting them tested at least once every 2 years.

7. A regular pulse check. 

Checking your pulse and heart rate at a regular rate can be a symptoms of heart issues an overactive thyroid or atrial fibrillation.
