Most hospitals talk about their women’s health programs, but, too often, these programs focus exclusively on the three Bs: babies, breasts and bones. Augusta University's Women’s Health program encompasses the entire spectrum of care, delivered by physicians who understand the important gender differences in health care and know that age is no longer just a number.

Do you know the 4 symptoms of #PFD? You might be living with it and not even realize it.

Saying 'no' to 'going with the flow': Anne's story of breaking free from urinary incontinence

One in 3 women will experience #PFD in her lifetime, but nearly 60 percent may wait up to five years or more to talk to their doctor about it— some never do. Anne said she just couldn't live with it anymore.
