Health topic on women's health problem:

hello everyone I am Sujit Biswas today I am going to discuss about  the health topic based on women's health problem.
In the present age we are always busy about work, our family etc etc..  I forget to take care our own health, For whom easily infects us with diseaseAnd that's why we need to be careful about our own health.Both men and women have some health problems in the present age. Today we discuss about the health topic on women's health. 

Facts on women's health

  • Women and men share many similar health problems, but women have their own health issues, which deserve special consideration.
  • Women's lives have changed over the centuries. Historically, life was particularly difficult for most women. Aside from the numerous dangers and diseases, women became wives and mothers often when they were just emerging from their own childhood.
  • In 1900, a woman's life span was about 50 years. Now, in the new millennium, average life expectancy for American women is 82 years of age, and it is continuing to rise. Not only are women living longer, but they also can anticipate the possibility of enjoying a better quality of life throughout their span of years. In order to accomplish this, it is essential that women take charge of their own bodies and that they comprehend how they can maximize their personal health and fitness. It is also helpful that men understand and are supportive of the health concerns of the women.
Here, a list of the most common health topic concerns among women to be on the lookout for, and what you can try to do to prevent them.

Cancer: The two most common cancers in women are breast and cervical cancer. Early detection of both cancers is key to keeping women healthy and healthy. About one and a half million women suffer from uterine cancer each year and half a million suffer from breast cancer. These deaths occur in low and middle income countries.

Heart Disease

In the United States, heart disease causes one in every four deaths among women. [2] Although the public considers heart disease a common issue among men, the condition affects males and females nearly equally. Yet, only 54 percent of women realize that heart disease is the top health condition threatening their gender. In the United States, 49 percent of all consumers suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or smoke; factors that contribute to heart disease.
Reproductive health: Sexual and reproductive health problems account for one third of the health problems of women between the ages of 15 and 44. Unsafe sex is a major risk factor - especially among women and girls in developing countries.
Maternal health: Many women are now benefitting from massive improvements in care during pregnancy and childbirth introduced in the last century. But those benefits do not extend everywhere and in 2013, almost 300 000 women died from complications in pregnancy and childbirth. Most of these deaths could have been prevented, had access to family planning and to some quite basic services been in place.
HIV: Three decades into the AIDS epidemic, it is young women who bear the brunt of new HIV infections. Too many young women still struggle to protect themselves against sexual transmission of HIV and to get the treatment they require. This also leaves them particularly vulnerable to tuberculosis - one of the leading causes of death in low-income countries of women 20–59 years.
Sexually transmitted infections: I’ve already mentioned the importance of protecting against HIV and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection (the world’s most common STI). But it is also vital to do a better job of preventing and treating diseases like gonorrhoea, chlamydia and syphilis. Untreated syphilis is responsible for more than 200,000 stillbirths and early foetal deaths every year, and for the deaths of over 90 000 newborns.
Violence against women: Women can be subject to a range of different forms of violence, but physical and sexual violence – either by a partner or someone else – is particularly invidious. Today, one in three women under 50 has experienced physical and/or sexual violence by a partner, or non-partner sexual violence – violence which affects their physical and mental health in the short and long-term. It’s important for health workers to be alert to violence so they can help prevent it, as well as provide support to people who experience it.

Gynecological Health

Gynecology and reproductive health services may include the diagnosis and treatment of various conditions and diseases, including:
  1. abnormal Pap smears
  2. Presence of high-risk HPV
  3. Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  4. Bacterial vaginosis
  5. Endometriosis
  6. Heavy menstrual cycles
  7. Irregular menstrual cycles
  8. Other vaginal infections
  9. Ovarian cysts
  10. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  11. Pelvic pain
  12. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  13. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
  14. Uterine fibroids
  15. Uterine and vaginal prolapse
  16. Vaginal yeast infection
  17. Various conditions affecting the vulva and vagina

Pregnancy Issues

Pre-existing conditions can worsen during pregnancy, threatening the health of a mother and her child. [6] Asthma, diabetes, and depression can harm the mother and child during pregnancy if not managed properly.
Pregnancy can cause a healthy mother’s red blood cell count to drop, a condition called anemia, or induce depression. Another problem arises when a reproductive cell implants outside the uterus, making further gestation unfeasible. Fortunately, obstetricians can manage and treat common and rare health issues that emerge during pregnancies.
Mental health: Evidence suggests that women are more prone than men to experience anxiety, depression, and somatic complaints – physical symptoms that cannot be explained medically. Depression is the most common mental health problem for women and suicide a leading cause of death for women under 60. Helping sensitise women to mental health issues, and giving them the confidence to seek assistance, is vital.
Noncommunicable diseases: In 2012, some 4.7 million women died from noncommunicable diseases before they reached the age of 70 —most of them in low- and middle-income countries. They died as a result of road traffic accidents, harmful use of tobacco, abuse of alcohol, drugs and substances, and obesity -- more than 50% of women are overweight in Europe and the Americas. Helping girls and women adopt healthy lifestyles early on is key to a long and healthy life.
Being young: Adolescent girls face a number of sexual and reproductive health challenges: STIs, HIV, and pregnancy. About 13 million adolescent girls (under 20) give birth every year. Complications from those pregnancies and childbirth are a leading cause of death for those young mothers. Many suffer the consequences of unsafe abortion.
Getting older: Having often worked in the home, older women may have fewer pensions and benefits, less access to health care and social services than their male counterparts. Combine the greater risk of poverty with other conditions of old age, like dementia, and older women also have a higher risk of abuse and generally, poor health.
