What are common symptoms of PMS?
As the hormone levels in your body change running up to your period you may experience symptoms like feeling bloated, tender breasts, mood swings and irritability, lower back ache and being more clumsy than usual.
What is menopause?
Menopause is when a woman stops having periods, usually between the ages of 45 and 55. If a woman experiences menopause before 40 years of age, it’s known as premature menopause or premature ovarian insufficiency.
What is dysmenorrhea?
Pain associated with menstruation is called dysmenorrhea.
How can dysmenorrhea be treated?
Your doctor may recommend medication or painkillers to see if the pain can be relieved. Lifestyle changes may also help such as exercising, walking, swimming, getting enough sleep and massaging your lower abdomen.
If medications do not help relieve pain, you may see a specialist to help determine the cause of your period pain.
How old should I be when I have my first mammogram?
Women generally get their first mammograms around 40 years old. However, if there is a history of breast cancer in your family, or if you have reason to believe you may have breast cancer, you should be screened sooner.
What is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is loss of bone strength that makes you vulnerable to broken bones. Women start losing bone in their 30s and the process speeds up after menopause. Your healthcare provider will discuss the risk of osteoporosis and what you can do to help keep your bones strong.
What can I do to relieve the aching in my knees?
Osteoarthritis is predominantly a disease of aging wherein the knees, hips, and feet, are affected. Aside from aging, important risk factors are obesity, significant joint injury, and overuse. You should consult your healthcare provider, to rule out rheumatoid arthritis, a more serious autoimmune disease of the joints.
What is a UTI?
A urinary tract infection is an infection in your kidneys, bladder or urethra.
What are common signs and symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?
You may experience irregular menstrual periods, excess androgen or male hormones which may cause excess facial or body hair, infertility, oily skin and severe acne. If you have at least two of these symptoms, you may be diagnosed with PCOS.
What can I expect after an abdominal hysterectomy?
If your ovaries have been removed during your operation, you may be offered hormone replacement therapy (HRT). You can discuss the best way forward with your gynaecologist.
