Women’s reproductive health involves a range of important issues that deserve close attention.

Health

From menstrual irregularities to infections, staying informed about prevalent gynaecological issues is paramount for maintaining overall well-being during the reproductive years.

Health

The most common problems encountered are: Urinary Tract Infection, White Discharge from Vagina, Irregular Periods, Heavy Menstrual Flow and Painful Menstruation.

Health

Urinary tract infections are prevalent among women due to various factors such as anatomical differences and external influences.

Health

White discharge is normal in many instances and can be seen in women before or after menstruation.

Health

Menstrual irregularities can signal hormonal imbalances or underlying health issues, particularly in cases where cycles deviate significantly from the average 28-day cycle.

Health

A flow lasting seven days in total, with the need to change 20 pads (resulting in 80 ml blood loss) inclusive of these seven days, and the passage of small clots, is considered normal.

Health

Referred to as Dysmenorrhea, some amount of pain, cramps, and discomfort are considered natural to occur during menstruation.
