Being a woman certainly has its pro’s and con’s. Different stages in life make certain health conditions become more likely as the female body goes through biological and hormonal changes. We experience many health concerns that are specific to our gender such as pre-menstrual syndrome, menopause and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
Premenstrual syndrome also known as PMS refers to the many physical and emotional symptoms a woman can experience prior to menstruation. Menopause refers to the change of life experience when menstruation ceases and you can no longer fall pregnant. During this time, there are many hormonal changes that bring about a range of symptoms that can be downright difficult for many women. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a very common hormonal problem that affects normal ovulation as eggs are not released during the middle of the menstrual cycle, and this can cause a number of inconvenient symptoms.
