Women have unique health
issues. And some of the
health issues that affect
both men and women can
affect women differently.
With the help of this post
we will discuss and
understand some unique
health issues of women’s.
Unique issues include pregnancy, menopause, and conditions of the female organs.
Women can have a healthy pregnancy by getting early and regular prenatal care. They
should also get recommended breast cancer, cervical cancer, and bone density screenings.
Women and men also have many of the same health problems. But these problems can
affect women differently. For example,
Women are more likely to die following a heart attack than men
Women are more likely to show signs of depression and anxiety than men
The effects of sexually transmitted diseases can be more serious in women
Osteoarthritis affects more women than men
Women are more likely to have urinary tract problems
Healthy lifestyle choices — such as eating a healthy diet and including physical activity in
your daily routine — can go a long way toward reducing women's health risks.
For others, women's health concerns include cosmetic surgery. And as you get older, your
women's health concerns are likely to change. Could belly fat lead to health problems? Are
Kegel exercises really necessary? Get the answers to these and other women's health
questions to increase your knowledge.
Home pregnancy tests
Home pregnancy tests are sensitive enough to provide a reading that is about 99 per cent
accurate, if instructions are followed correctly. Home pregnancy tests that are currently
available include Clearblue One Step, Clearview HGC, Crystal clear, Discover, Dotest
Confirm, First Response, Fortel and Pregnosis.
Pregnancy testing can be carried out in 2 ways: some test sticks are held in mid-stream
urine, others need a urine sample which is tested with a dip-and-read stick. If using a dipand-read product, make sure that the urine is collected in a clean glass or plastic container.
Urine samples should be tested immediately after collection.
HCG is often at its strongest concentration first thing in the morning, so is a good time to
take the test.
