Five Reasons Why Women Should See Their Healthcare Provider Today

Last week we announced Trekz Titanium Pink and we’re all pretty excited to sport the hot new color while also speaking out about the risks of ovarian cancer, a disease that 1 in 67 women will develop in their lifetime, and breast cancer, affecting 1 in 8.

When it comes to combatting cancer, awareness is the name of the game. Your chances of survival are significantly higher with early detection. That’s why it’s so important to receive routine checkups and annual screenings. If that’s not enough of a reason to dial your doctor’s number, here are a few more: 

 

1. To Develop a Rapport

You may only be seeing your doctor once every three, five, seven years right now, but as you get older, you’re going to need your doctor more and more. Why not take the time now to find someone you’ll actually enjoy seeing? By developing a positive relationship with a provider who makes you feel comfortable and lets you be yourself, you’re more likely to keep those appointments, even with your crazy schedule.

 

2. To Give You Peace of Mind

You know you’ve laid awake some nights asking yourself, is this normal? Is that? And how about that other thing? Don’t lose those precious winks of sleep wondering. With one quick trip to your provider, you’ll have a much better idea of where you stand, and what you can do to improve your bill of health.

 

3. To Maintain Optimal Health

If you look healthy, and you feel healthy, then you must be fine, right? Ehhh, unfortunately not always. By keeping up with your wellness exams, bloodwork, and other routine testing, you’ll be able to tackle the small stuff, and that’s much easier than tackling the big stuff!

 

4. To Save Money

Nobody likes bills, and nobody wants to pay more bills than they have to. (How many little fines, fees and service charges have you disputed?) But a small co-pay now is loads better than a big hospital bill later.

 

5. To Set An Example For Your Kids

From watching your language, to eating your vegetables, you’re a positive role model for your kids. Demonstrate that getting your yearly checkup is no worry and no hassle, so that they grow up caring about their health, as much as you care about their health!
