Urban Chinese women are facing multiple pressures and health issues in connection with their home life, work and social affairs, according to the 2017 Report on Urban Women's Health published on April 4 by China Business News Data.

The report indicates that women of different ages face a range of problems related to their corresponding stage in life.

For women from 16-20, their top concerns are personal health, fitness, weight loss and psychology. More and more of them regard psychological health as important as physical health, according to the study.

Compared with their peers from smaller cities, young women from the first-tier and the second-tier cities are more likely to seek professional consultation over those topics in their life. Those from smaller cities display a greater eagerness to ask questions about sex and gender on the internet due to its convenience and privacy.

As indicated in the report, neurology and posture is set to be the most common consultation topic among 20 to 25-year-old female workers. They are also more concerned about their teeth and digestive health.

As for 25 to 35-year-olds, they generally pay more attention to gynaecology, obstetrics, paediatrics and dermatology. The top six paediatric questions asked in hospitals by young mothers are about their children's fever, cough, indigestion, throat infection, diarrhoea or flu.

Consultations about throat infections increase by around 44 percentage on smoggy days.

Women in this category also often ask questions about irregular menstruation, constipation, breast cancer and other related diseases.

Finally, women in their middle age, from 35 to 45, often ask questions to orthopaedic surgeons about back problems and other chronic diseases. Furthermore, they frequently visit clinics to see specialists on rheumatology, traditional Chinese medicine and sports health.
