Understanding Reproductive Health: Common Conditions and Treatment Options

Reproductive health is important and if women are struggling with untreated reproductive health issues, it can affect their daily lives. It’s important that you’re able to identify if you might be dealing with a reproductive health issue. There are some common conditions that many women struggle with and each one needs treatment so that you can live comfortably and without the stress of further complications occurring.

Common Reproductive Health Issues

Reproductive health issues come in all shapes and sizes. One of the most common types of conditions is those related to a woman’s period. There are conditions that can affect a menstrual cycle and make it so that periods are heavy, painful, and sometimes irregular. Seeing an OBGYN can give you the tools you need to manage this pain. Often, your doctor might recommend making lifestyle changes, looking into birth control, or changing what you’re currently using.

Endometriosis can cause extreme pain and cause fertility issues. This happens when tissue that is similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterine cavity. Endometriosis can cause scar tissue to build up and painful periods. Pain medication along with hormone therapy is one of the best ways to regulate your pain.

Many women deal with uterine fibroids and don't know they have them. Some women experience severe pain and heavy periods. Fibroids can be completely harmless and are noncancerous growths that develop in a woman’s uterus. If they begin to affect your daily life and cause you to feel constant pain and fatigue, your doctor might recommend removing your fibroids.
