Women’s Health: Knowing More About Yourself and Your Female Body Gynecologists are medical practitioners licensed to diagnose and treat of different conditions of the female reproductive system. According to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the common reproductive health concerns that women experience are endometriosis, uterine fibroids, gynecologic cancer, HIV/AIDS, interstitial cystitis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and sexual violence. Let us talk about some of these health conditions affecting women’s reproductive system. Endometriosis is a chronic condition, often a painful disorder affecting a woman’s uterus, wherein the tissue lining the uterus grows somewhere else, commonly affecting the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue around the pelvis. Endometrial tissues grow outside the uterus such as on and around the ovaries, the abdominal and pelvic organs, and rarely on other parts of the body. The exact cause of endometriosis is unknown, but the possible causes are family history, retrograde or backwards menstruation and metaplasia. The other possible causative factors predisposing to endometriosis are having first period before 11 years of age, having first pregnancy at an older age, heavy bleeding more than five days, shorter regular menstrual cycles, immune cellular changes, low body weight ad alcohol use. The key factor in the diagnosis and an important symptom of endometriosis associated with the abnormal location of the endometrial tissue is pain. Painful episodes usually happen before and during a menstrual period, during and after sex, or when urinating and bowel movement. Bleeding may occur, usually heavy with or without clots, and it may also be irregular, with or without a regular cycle, longer than usual and may happen before a period is due. Other signs and symptoms include bladder and bowel problems, increased abdominal bloating, tiredness, moodiness, reduced quality of life and vaginal tightening and spasms. Polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS is a hormonal imbalance caused by genetic and environmental factors, that causes absence of ovulation, high androgen levels and ovarian cysts detected by ultrasound. The signs and symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome are irregular or no menstrual periods, infertility, excess body and facial hair, acne, oily skin, dandruff, pelvic pain, baldness or thinning of hair, and patches of darker, thicker, velvety skin.

On the other hand, uterine fibroids are the presence of noncancerous tumors around the uterine wall caused by abnormal growth of muscle cells and tissues forming fibroids. The most common signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids are heavy or painful periods, bleeding between periods, feeling of fullness in the lower abdomen, frequent urination, pain during sex, lower back pain and reproductive problems such as early labor, multiple miscarriages and infertility.What Almost No One Knows About Experts
