Almost 3 out of 4 young women avoid going to the gynecologist when necessary because they are embarrassed. Ladies, if you are reading this, keep in mind that your reproductive system is a miraculous force of nature and you should never feel ashamed to talk about your health.
We compiled a list of problems that are often ignored until they become major health problems. We hope you sit back, relax, read, and remember that your well-being is the number one priority.
Most Common Female Health Problems
The Problem Of Spotting
Spotting is defined as light bleeding outside of your menstrual cycle. Totally unfair, right? It can be caused by ovarian cysts, missed birth control pills, or even stress.
It’s important to set aside time for self-care during stressful times in your life. Do things like take a hot bath, get a massage, and remember that your health is more important than meeting this deadline.
If stress is not the case, consider what could be disrupting your hormones and speak to a gynecologist if the problem persists.
The Risk Of Vaginitis
Vaginitis is a type of inflammation that can cause itching, odor, discharge, and pain. Looks adorable, right? It can be caused by a number of factors and the good news is that it is not always infectious.
Tampons, soaps, and lubricants can cause non-infectious vaginitis. Therefore, be sure to use unscented natural products and wash them gently with water and natural soaps. If you think you have an infectious form of vaginitis, see your doctor as soon as possible.
Discomfort Due To Dryness
There! Every woman knows that a dry “downstairs” can ruin the best days. This unpleasant dryness is caused by a hormonal imbalance, possibly due to menopause, childbirth, or breastfeeding.
Fortunately, the solution is simple. Natural lubricants can be used to alleviate dryness, just be sure to check the ingredients first.
The Risk Of Cysts
Umm, no thanks! Don’t worry, cysts usually go away over time. Vulvar cysts appear on the outer skin, while vaginal cysts appear on the inner vaginal wall.
The best home remedy is to soak in a sitz bath for 15 minutes. But if a cyst becomes infected, seek professional treatment and be sure to see a doctor.
The Danger Of Tight And Synthetic Underwear
Yes, we know these silk panties are beautiful, but we have found that wearing tight underwear can cause friction and heat, which increases bacteria overgrowth and can lead to infections.
So keep this in mind the next time you see nice underwear at the mall – your health is more important than fashion.
Always check the fabric of your underwear! All your problems can start due to the poor quality of your synthetic underwear.
Issues After Overzealous Cleaning
Ladies, we all want to be quiet there, but excessive cleaning and unnatural chemicals can upset the natural bacterial balance of the vagina and cause infections.
So, put that fruit-scented product back on the shelf and opt for unscented natural soap or products made especially for intimate and therapeutic hygiene.
