Issues with our dear female system

Well as we all know that there a quit a few things that can go wrong with the female reproductive system, and I know that this is sometimes the last thing anyone wants to think about, but it’s unfortunately one of the things we deal with a women. Women may sometimes experience reproductive system problems. Obviously this is just mentioning a few, but I am very sure that I’m missing a whole lot of things, but some of them are:
  • Vulvovaginitis, Painful swelling and redness (inflammation), it could be caused by irritating material (e.g. soaps or bubble baths). One of the things that could also contribute is poor personal hygiene, in the event where you wipe from back to front after a bowel movement… not a pleasant thought I know, but it happens.
  • Ectopic pregnancy, Ectopic means “out of place”. With an ectopic pregnancy, a fertilized egg has implanted outside the uterus, the egg settles in the fallopian tubes in more than 95% of these pregnancies. It is also commonly called “tubal pregnancies”
  • Endometriosis, well I think that this is the most popular one, because so many of us have been treated and operated for this. Anyway endometriosis is when tissue normally found only in the uterus starts to grow outside the uterus in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or any other parts of the pelvic cavity.
  • Varian cysts, this is normally noncancerous sacs which are filled with fluid or semi-solid materials. They are common and generally harmless, but could become a problem if they grow large.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome, abbreviated PCOS or PCO, is an endocrine disorder. According to all searches conducted the principal features are weight problems, lack of regular ovulation/menstruation, and excessive amount or effects of androgenic hormones, it is said that the causes are not really known, but insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity are all strongly correlated with PCOS.

Now we all know that there are also a large number of menstrual problems which can affect females, it is believed that some of the most common conditions are as follow:

  • Dysmenorrhoea, this is when you have painful periods
  • Menorrhagia, this is when you have a very heavy periods with excess bleeding.
  • Oligomenorrhea, menstruation occurs at much longer intervals than normal or skipped
