Women undergo many changes in their bodies as they grow up. After they hit puberty, they begin to menstruate and experience other changes caused by hormones. After becoming a mother, their bodies tend to undergo major changes such as weight gain, hormonal imbalance and so on. Most women ignore these health-related changes that further lead to long-term health problems.
It is important for them to undergo a medical check-up and to visit their GP regularly. As they say, prevention is better than cure. There are a few health problems like breast cancer and vaginal infection that are commonly discovered in women. Read about these diseases below:
It is common to have white discharge and a little odor in your vaginal area during menstruation. But if things like extreme irritation, itching, pain, abdominal pain are common, then that is a sign that you have a vaginal infection.
You may have contracted a urinary tract infection (UTI), sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), or one of the reproductive organs. You should see a doctor immediately and get yourself tested.
With age, a female body begins to lose essential nutrients such as calcium and iron if they do not follow a proper diet. Women in their 30s and 40s have weak immunity due to an unbalanced diet and lack of calcium and iron supplements. The immunity disorder can also be caused by exhaustion and stress.
Ovarian or cervical cancer
Ovarian cancer occurs in the fallopian tube while cervical cancer occurs in the lower part of the uterus. Both types of cancer have life-threatening effects. They cause a lot of pain. The only difference is that if you have cervical cancer, you may also experience pain during sex.
Breasts are one of the most sensitive parts of a female body. If you feel any lumps in your breast area, you should get it checked as it could be a sign of breast cancer.
Depression and Anxiety
Various circumstances, whether social or physical, affect women’s mental health, causing them to suffer from anxiety or depression.
