Reproductive health can be a complicated and sometimes embarrassing topic to discuss. That’s why so many people can be misled about what is going on down there. Here are some true facts about women’s health, and how vaginal rejuvenation can help with some issues.
Common Women’s Health Myths and Facts
Can your period come back after it stops at menopause?
Around age 51-58, a woman’s period stops, and should not come back. Doctors say it is never normal for bleeding to return. Certain medical conditions can be the culprit of postmenopausal bleeding like cancer, polyps, infections or precancers. The best thing you can do is ask a doctor if you have any concerns about vaginal bleeding and get it checked out immediately.
If your doctor recommends you get a full hysterectomy, you may have concerns about the surgery’s effect on your body and the fact that you’ll lose your ability to conceive. It’s okay to get a second opinion on a hysterectomy; modern medicine provides many alternative options to handle issues like fibroids, bleeding and endometriosis. Certain medications can treat these conditions. However, they are not as permanent of solutions as a hysterectomy surgery. Check with your doctor to know all your options, and decide which treatment works best for you.
Should I still go to the doctor even after I stop having babies?
Yes! Regular checkups with your gynecologist is important, even after you have children. You’ll need to continue getting regular breast exams, pap smears and rectal exams. You should never neglect your health care. Your doctor can also keep track of your blood pressure and weight, in addition to providing counseling on how to maintain reproductive health.
How accurate are mammograms?
Mammograms are pretty accurate exams, but in the past, they have missed 10-15 percent of breast cancers. Even if you received a positive result from your mammogram never ignore these signs:
- Breast pain
- Nipple discharge
- Change in breast size
- Change in breast skin texture
If you notice any of these symptoms, consult a doctor at your women’s health clinic for another test to make sure nothing is awry.
Why hasn’t sex felt the same since I’ve given birth?
As women age, their reproductive organs also feel it. After delivering a baby, going through menopause or being treated for certain cancers, the vaginal walls are not what they used to be. This can cause discomfort during sex, urinary incontinence or uterine prolapse. The FemiLift vaginal rejuvenation procedure can help prevent some of those problems and bring back feeling and control to the vagina.
