Women have many unique health concerns — menstrual cycles, pregnancy, birth control, menopause — and that's just the beginning. A number of health issues affect only women and others are more common in women. What's more, men and women may have the same condition, but different symptoms. Many diseases affect women differently and may even require distinct treatment.
Some women are being turned down for oral surgery or other dental procedures because they are taking osteoporosis drugs, which pose the risk of a rare condition called osteonecrosis of the jaw. But experts say the overall risk of developing this condition is low, and in most cases the fact that a woman is taking an osteoporosis drug shouldn’t stop her from receiving oral surgery.

They opened the first Feminist Women's Health Center in Los Angeles, California. They offered self-help groups for the community.

In 1971 a woman named Carol Downer used a speculum, a mirror and a flashlight, to look at her own cervix. She was the mother of six children and had never seen her own cervix. She saw where her babies had passed through, where her menstrual flow came from, and what the doctors had commented on over the years. It was a very enlightening moment for her. What she did with that knowledge was revolutionary. She was part of a woman's group, working to legalize abortion. She took her speculum to the next meeting and showed them her cervix. The group in turn took speculums to the California NOW conference and did "Self Help" for hundreds of women. Self Help groups became a place where women could see their cervixes, talk about their reproductive health care, and learn from each other's health experiences.
