Men’s and Woman’s Health
Women’s health is the most valuable thing that every woman has. Maintaining psychological and physical health is the most important and vital priority for any modern woman. For a woman, health is an opportunity to preserve youth for many years.
Unfortunately, at any age, a woman has various diseases that can not only cause anxiety but also turn into severe problems that affect the quality of life.
One of the aspects that affect women’s health is the gynecological diseases that every woman has to face. This can be both relatively harmless or severe diseases, the result of which can be the development of serious complications up to oncology and depriving the opportunity to deliver a baby. That is why girls should know the main points regarding the issues of the female genital area: normal duration of menstruation, indicators of a healthy hormonal background, issues of pregnancy planning, symptoms of gynecological diseases and others.
Gynecology studies the features of anatomy, physiology, psyche, and psychology of the female body. Its most important tasks are the identification, treatment and prevention of diseases of the reproductive system. Currently, all gynecological diseases are divided into:
- sexually transmitted diseases. This group includes ailments, the infection of which is carried out in the process of unprotected sexual intercourse. Many of them can subsequently cause infertility.
- diseases that affect the pelvic organs and occur in the form of inflammatory processes.
- diseases that have not inflammatory, but a different nature (endometriosis, neoplasms).
- endocrine changes that develop due to hormonal disbalance (the formation of polyps, cysts, the development of infertility, menstrual irregularities).
Gynecology also plays an important role in family planning. It helps to conceive, endure and give birth to a healthy child. A regular visit to the gynecologist allows the expectant mother to avoid many problems relating to the intrauterine development of the baby and her immediate health.
During menopause, women should also visit the gynecological office. An experienced specialist will select the appropriate therapy, which can significantly reduce the severity of menopause manifestations, thereby relieving the patient’s condition.
Many men do not think about their health until the first problems and diseases appear. Often, even with alarming symptoms, men are in no hurry to make an appointment with a urologist or prostate therapist, preferring to solve problems on their own. To avoid the formation of severe chronic diseases, it is necessary to pay attention to the prevention and treatment of these disorders in time. If you do not monitor your health, you may eventually have to neglect such undesirable consequences as prostatitis, adenoma, erectile dysfunction, male infertility, and even cancer.
At what age should you start taking care of men’s health and what diseases should beware?
According to experts, you need to start monitoring your health as early as possible, from a young age.
Prostatitis and prostate adenoma are the most common male health problems. According to modern statistics offered by Brooklyn health physical therapy centers, every man faces some form of prostatitis. The disease manifests itself as acute pain in the genital area, frequent or difficult urination, impaired erection.
Very young men suffer from prostatitis and prostate adenoma. Previously, prostatitis bothered men over 30. The main cause is circulatory disorders in the pelvic area due to sedentary work, a sedentary lifestyle, hypothermia. Prostatitis related to occupational diseases of certain categories of workers: office workers, drivers, etc. Now even 20-25-year-old active young people often have similar problems. The reason is that other factors were added to the main causes of the disease onset:
- non-revealed genital infections;
- chronic stress;
- environmental degradation.
Prostatitis becomes chronic and leads to impaired potency. It can even cause male infertility. It is better to undergo prostate physical therapy in time.
A prostate adenoma is a benign proliferation of prostate tissue with the formation of nodes. This pathology is observed in about 30-40% of men over 50 years and in 70-90% over 65 years. This problem significantly disturbs the quality of life, causing severe urination disorders, pain, and sexual dysfunction. Among the causes, there are:
- hormonal disorders due to a decrease in testosterone production;
- lack of exercise;
- a sedentary lifestyle, etc.
If the treatment of adenoma is not started in time, the consequences can be severe, up to surgical intervention.
Another common problem that can significantly impair a man’s quality of life is erectile dysfunction.
The production of testosterone hormone decreases with age. At the age of 25, the maximum amount of testosterone is produced in a man’s body. Then every year, its rate in the blood decreases by approximately 1%. Nowadays, men accelerate this process by smoking, alcohol abuse, malnutrition, and obesity, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. An overloaded work schedule, stress and lack of sleep should also not be excluded from the list.
The regular and excessive consumption of beer leads to a visceral type of obesity – “beer belly”. The internal fat, which is deposited between the organs, begins to produce the female hormone estrogen, which suppresses the male hormone. At the same time, the herbal ingredients of beer themselves – phytoestrogens – also disrupt the production of testosterone. As a result, sexual function suffers and potency decreases.
