women health report survey

A health survey states that 92% of Indian women know that feminine health affects emotion and mental well-being, yet they are hesitant to seek help. Motherhood Hospitals, a speciality hospital chain providing fertility care and services to children and women in many cities of the country, conducted the survey.

Sample Of The Survey

According to the Economic Times, Motherhood Hospitals interviewed 225 women from Sec A and Sec B from millennial, Gen Z and Gen X categories. These women lived in tier-one cities of the country.

The survey aimed to study the priorities of new-age women with respect to feminine health. It is also meant to trace the changes in the opinion of women on the subject of female health. The survey also explored the factors that led to these changes.

Highlights Of The Survey

  • The statistics say that 92% of women from the sample know about the adverse effects of feminine health. However, only a few take measures to ensure mental and emotional well-being.
  • About 50% of the women are more likely to discuss feminine health issues with female members of the family. The other half is likely to discuss these issues with a spouse or a friend instead of seeking help from a gynaecologist or health expert.
  • About 55% of women visit the gynaecologist only when they are pregnant or have concerns regarding fertility. 22% of Indian women seek professional help for menstruation-related problems.
  • Only 11% of women prefer regular checkups with the gynaecologist, while 33% return for a follow-up within five to 15 days. 

Professional Opinion
