Women are the real architects of society.’ Her role in shaping up the family is also commendable. The Almighty has made them in such a unique way that is a true avatar or care, compassion and strength and resilience’ all in one soul, one body. To carry out multiple roles, she must be healthy and free from any pain. Yet, there are times in life when she sacrifices her health until it gets too late.
Don’t let your health get into the ‘too late’ mode just like Sharmila. Sharmila is a confident young girl busy shaping her career in the hospitality industry. She had a tough time every month with menstruation debilitating her completely. Severe cramps accompanied by loose motions, heavy bleeding, nausea, and dizziness had become a routine every month. On being advised to see a doctor, she kept postponing it until she was diagnosed with dysmenorrhoea.
This is a condition describes as throbbing and cramping pains in the lower abdominal region. The pain generally starts 1 to 3 days prior to the beginning of the periods. It’s a constant dull pain which can even radiate to lower back and thighs. Why does this cramping take place in the very first place? During periods, the uterus is contracting hard and trying to expel out its old tissue lining. Prostaglandin, a hormone acts as a trigger for pain and inflammation while squeezing the uterine lining.
Some of the other causes of excessive pain are as follows:
- Endometriosis– This condition arises when the tissue lining the uterus implants itself outside in the fallopian tube or ovaries.
- Cervical stenosis- Some women are born with a narrow cervix which does not allow the normal menstrual flow, hence the increased pressure by the uterus to expel the tissues and blood causes unbearable pain.
- Uterine fibroids- these are nothing but benign growths in the uterine wall.
- PID (Pelvic inflammatory Disease) – it is an infection caused by certain bacteria affecting the female reproductive parts and is sexually transmitted.
Smita was an athlete in school. After joining college, she suddenly put on a lot of weight. It was found that she has cysts in her ovaries. Ovaries are the gonads of the female reproductive system that release an egg or an ovum every month for it to get fertilized and form the zygote. Ovarian cysts are nothing but sac-like structures filled with a semi-solid or liquid substance.
There are many types of ovarian cysts like:
a) Follicular cysts
b) Dermoid cysts
c) PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).
Smaller cysts disappear on their own after a period of time but the bigger ones remain in the ovary and cause symptoms like pain in the abdomen/pelvis, bloating, pain during sexual intercourse, nausea and increased abdominal girth. The most common amongst the cysts is the PCOS characterized by the presence of multiple small cysts within both the ovaries. It can also give rise to a number of hormonal problems and is also a leading cause of infertility in women.
Several reasons could be responsible for pelvic pain like:
- Ectopic Pregnancy
- Mittelschermz (Pain During Ovulation)
- Uterine Fibroids
- Infections Like Uti And Pid
- Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer is the uncontrolled growth of different types of cells within the ovary. The unfortunate part is that most of the cases of ovarian cancer are detected towards the later stage as there are no reliable early signs and symbols.
Leucorrhoea is a condition in which a whitish discharge is released from the vagina. There are two types of leucorrhoea.
- The first one is physiological leucorrhoea which occurs when as a mechanism to restore the chemical balance of the body and maintain the flexibility of the vagina when estrogen levels are high.
- The second one is inflammatory leucorrhoea characterised by foul smelling whitish discharge indicating an infection. The main cause of leucorrhoea is hormonal imbalance.
