Yes, there are many. With the rise in pollution, plastic use and disposal, chemicals in products we use, all can influence how our hormones form and even the environment they function in. Pollution for example can reduce the oxygen our cells are able to care, also increasing fatigue we experience. A lot of what we eat and consume contain micro plastics which can influence the functioning of hormones, additionally some may be present in the environment surrounding our eggs in the ovaries. While a lot cannot be controlled, but limiting your exposure, improving your lifestyle and consuming a healthier natural diet can encourage your body to take better care of itself.

What supplements are recommended for menopause?
You would generally need calcium and vitamin d supplements once you hit your 40s. As you grow older your calcium absorption decreases and it is very important to maintain certain calcium levels for your bone and muscle strength. Vitamin d is needed for better absorption of calcium as well as for good mood regulation. Apart from that most other supplements get prescribed based on deficiency.
Menopause means stopping of female hormones, especially Estrogen. Because it is necessary for your vagina as well as your overall health, you can take so many natural Medicines instead of taking just supplements. You may face vaginal dryness, mood swings/ emotional ups and downs and osteoporosis. Also hot flushes irritates most. Just supplements are not sufficient if these symptoms are irritating you. Then Take proper consultation with your doctor. Natural medicines are more useful in my opinion.

my periods are not regular after my delivery
Hi there, I hope you are well. -Not getting your period after delivery until a year is considered to be normal. - You can expect it to begin soon. - Hence, you needn't worry ,and take good care of yourself during this phase. - Avoid getting stressed, rather take time to do meditation and yoga as and when possible. - Eat a well balanced diet including fibre, good fats, as well as protein. - Drink enough water. - And add some movement to your daily routine. You can simply opt for a walk . Take care ✨

My periods are delayed by 8days and i checked i am pregnant but i dont want this baby so can anyone help me with MTP abortion details how much days it take to abort the baby?
Go to Govt authorised abortion centre and consult gynec. They will guide you about the process. Defending on age of fetus doctor can give tablets after confirmation of pregnancy using ultrasound scan. Once it is confirmed that your pregnancy is uterine pregnancy, doctor can take decision easily. If anyone have ectopic pregnancy that is Pregnancy in tubes, doctor need to do laproscopy to abort this pregnancy. So ultrasound scan is a must now a days. Kindly do consult a gynec for further management.

Are there any dietary supplements you recommend to support my menstrual health based on my individual needs?
Hey there! 🌸 Looking to boost your menstrual health? Consider adding these essentials to your routine: Iron for replenishing lost blood, Vitamin B6 to ease those pesky PMS symptoms, Magnesium for calming those cramps, Omega-3 fatty acids to soothe inflammation, and don't forget Calcium for bone health and mood stability. Your body will thank you for the extra support!
hina15d
There is no restriction for your diet during your menstrual cycle. Nor are there any foods that you necessarily should eat, except for foods high in iron. Because of the blood loss, there is also some iron loss w/menstruation. Therefore, foods high in iron content can help replace the iron stores that women need. These foods can include dark chocolate in small amounts, molasses, and then green leafy veggies such as spinach, beef, turkey, etc. You can google for a more comprehensive list. Otherwise, no special diet is required.

How can nutrition play a role in addressing common women’s health concerns such as menstrual irregularities, PMS symptoms, or menopausal transitions?
Regulating menstrual cycles with iron-rich foods. Easing PMS symptoms through magnesium and vitamin B6.Managing menopausal symptoms with phytoestrogen-rich foods like soy.
Na_Dia16d
For menstrual irregularities and PMS symptoms, maintaining stable blood sugar levels by eating balanced meals with complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and lean proteins can help alleviate symptoms. Incorporating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and vitamin B6 may also be beneficial. During menopause, consuming foods rich in calcium and vitamin D helps maintain bone health. Phytoestrogen-rich foods like soy products can help alleviate hot flashes and other symptoms. Adequate intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains provides essential nutrients and supports overall health during this transitional phase. Additionally, staying hydrated and reducing caffeine and alcohol intake can help manage symptoms.

I am getting rashes from pads. What can I do to stop them?
docmfrank14d
If you have noticed rashes with one pad brand, it maybe helpful to try another. Another reason could also be using the pad for extended periods of time, which makes you more prone to rashes. Alternatives can include period panties or cloth pads which can help prevent rashes and are also eco-friendly as they are reusable. During your periods opt for loose cotton underwear and change it twice a day to limit sweat and rashes. If this doesn't subside with these simple changes, check in with a doctor to understand a possible underlying cause.
hina15d
Keep the affected area clean and dry, you can also apply a soothing cream or ointment that you can purchase over the counter. Ensure you're changing pads frequently to help prevent sanitary pad rash.

#PeriodTalk How do you track your period? Are you able to figure out when you are expecting your period every month without tracking? Share signs you notice that your period is around the corner in the comments below.
docmfrank13d
I track using the Flo app. My favourite part is adding the symptoms I experience on different days to be able to closer analyse how my cycles run each month.
I usually track my period using a calendar

#HealthCheck What are some common signs of an STD? Do all STDs have physical signs? The key to remember is most STDs can be treated through medications. Check in with your doctor at the earliest if you have any signs of an STD.
Yes, these are some symptoms, but there are possibilities that you might not have any symptoms for some days still you have STI. In some cases symptoms appear after window period just like in HIV infection. Some infection may remain silent and will make trouble to your partner/when you become weak on immunity level, they will start appearing. Women may experience the following symptoms also: Burning or itching in the vagina A discharge or odor from the vagina Pain around the pelvis Bleeding from the vagina that is not normal Pain deep inside during sex Sores, bumps or blisters in the vagina, anus, or mouth Burning and pain with urine or with bowel movements Having to go to the bathroom often warts/skin tags around genitals Some STI can give you cancer also like HPV infection. So never underestimate STI. whenever you have any of these symptoms, always consult with gynec or Sexologist. Get yourself tested If you have multiple partners always use precautions(condom/ female condom).

I am a mother and an educator in charter schools and ABC Youth Foundation. I host several podcast it's a huge passion of mine and I also produce I strongly feel that empathy is the glue of humanity and without it what do we have for understanding one another and being kind toward one another is what keeps Us human it's what makes it work and without it what can possibly get better you must hold on to that and remember and show it where it's needed so that people can know what it is and be able to show that same to others connecting and growing with others is within the foundations of empathy that's how the world gets better so we can understand we don't have to directly know one another we must be that change and it starts with us, we must be the change we want to see!more
