Many women have a hard time talking about problems “down there,” but poor gynecological health can trigger a myriad of health concerns. It can interfere with your sex life, cause unnecessary pain and increase your risk of developing a serious disease such as cancer.
Accept and respect your body.
- Get your annual gynecological checkup.which can help detect abnormal cells early.
- Practice safe sex.More than 20 sexually transmitted diseases have been identified. The most common include Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
- Eat a healthy diet to maintain a healthy body weight.Your menstrual cycle is highly dependent on your weight; women who are too thin or too heavy may start to experience problems such as losing their periods or having excessive or irregular flow.
- Do your Kegel exercises to keep the pelvic floor strong.A weak pelvic floor can cause problems with your bladder, such as loss of urine with a cough or sneeze, and can contribute to sexual problems.
- Work out regularly and in moderation. Include exercises such as yoga, which are good for reducing pelvic pain.
- Plan your pregnancy. Good health prior to becoming pregnant is beneficial to you and your baby; a preconception checkup can help determine whether you are at risk of any medical problems so you can treat them beforehand and can help ease the stress of pregnancy and delivery.
- Care for your vulva and vagina.by avoiding harsh soaps and douching, by wearing light breathable clothing and by ditching daily use of panty liners as they retain moisture against your body.
