Women’s health: Key symptoms you should know

Our bodies never stop changing, so it’s good to keep an eye on your mental and physical health and make sure you know what’s normal for you.

If you’re worried about any symptoms, or notice anything unusual, do get checked out as soon as possible.

The Bupa Female Health Check

Designed for women aged 25+, this women’s assessment focuses on your breast and gynaecological health. Booking this check-up means you’ll have 30 minutes with the doctor, when you can discuss any worries you may have. It also includes:

  • Measurements of your BMI and waist-to-height ratio
  • A blood pressure test
  • Blood and urine tests, including for anaemia and cholesterol
  • A breast examination
  • A cervical cancer (primary HPV) screening test
  • A high-vaginal swab, if the doctor thinks it’s needed

Learn more about women’s health conditions

There are lots of health conditions which only women face. It’s good to know about the more common ones, so you’ll be able to spot when something isn’t quite right.

We offer mental health information and advice for everyone

We all need different levels of mental health support at times. Sometimes it’s a friend showing they care, sometimes it’s help from a doctor or specialist. The information and advice on our website is for everyone, not just Bupa customers.
