Women take roles in various aspects, whether as a child, brother/sister, mother, wife, worker or caregiver. According to the 2015 Global Burden of Disease report, women in Singapore are living longer but lagging behind men in terms of adding healthy extra years to their lives. The good news is, some of the factors that lead to poor health near the end of life are preventable.
At Gleneagles Hospital, we understand women. We know that because of the biological makeup of women, their medical needs are different from those of men.
With more than 300 medical specialists in various disciplines, we are here to help women meet their evolving healthcare needs.
Sexual & Reproductive Health
A woman’s sexuality can change at different stages of life. Whether you are a teenager, a newly married woman, a working professional or a pregnant woman, there are things about sexuality and fertility that all women should know.
At Gleneagles Hospital, we understand the importance of an honest and open discussion about this. Having an understanding of female sexuality can improve your quality of life and prevent health problems from arising. From questions about low sex drive to fertility and pregnancy, we’re here to help answer your concerns.

We also examine health problems that affect the bladder, reproductive organs, and colon under a specialty known as urogynecology, as well as the warning signs of cancer a woman should watch for.
