Body Talk – Dealing with Common Recurring Issues!

Women experience a variety of medical issues that most men will not or cannot. We want to take some time to look at some of the more common recurring ones and identify some ways you can treat these.

Night Sweats

If you wake up in the middle of the night or the morning finding that your pillow and sheets are soaked with sweat, then you may be experiencing night sweats. These tend to occur during menopause, and talking to your doctor about this symptom is the best way to get the treatment you need for it. There is medication to help control every symptom of menopause, and if night sweats are bothering you, then your doctor may be able to prescribe something for you or advise you on a way to deal with the problem.

Bacterial Vaginosis

When your bacteria levels become imbalanced, then you may start to experience some discomfort in your vaginal area. If you notice excessive discharge, an odd smell or some pain when you urinate, then you may have bacterial vaginosis, and you can treat this with a few different home remedies. Soaking in a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water is one of the best ways to deal with it, but medical treatment or different kinds of natural applications work as well. There are actually tons of different possible treatment options for bacterial vaginosis, and you should be able to find one that you are comfortable with.

Sleep Apnea

This problem of restricted or blocked breathing during sleep is more common in women than in men. That’s because it can be caused by obesity (which is more common in women), menopause, pregnancy or a variety of other health issues. Treating the problem could require dealing with a health issue directly, such as by losing weight, if the problem is caused by obesity. But simply changing sleeping patterns and behaviors can be enough to make it go away. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to open up the airways enough to allow for regular breathing.

Menstrual Cramps

Only about one in seven women will experience severe menstrual cramps, but that’s a large enough percentage to discuss an easy treatment for this recurring problem. The best way to deal with the cramps is through regular exercise, and the best kind of exercise for them is aerobic exercise. That’s anything that gets your heart rate up, so biking, running, calisthenics and other cardio-heavy exercises are ideal. This should relieve the cramping and even make the cramps less severe next time. Cramps tend to become much less severe as you age, so if yours are troublesome, just hold on for a while longer. Relief is coming.

Genital Herpes

This is the most commonly transmitted sexual disease, and it is also one of the most benign. It can be accompanied by itching, sores or growths in the genital area, and there is no cure for it. The problem may go away on its own, but it can be successfully treated and the symptoms made less severe by a number of different treatment methods. There are both at-home remedies, like applying ice or baking soda to the affected area that work quite well, but the best treatment is a medical application.
