Health problems are not confined only to women, in today’s sedentary lifestyle, where lack of physical exertion and spending long hours in front of computers almost welcome many health issues. Women are usually more concerned about their partners’ health or their children’s health and tend to neglect their own health concerns. However, this is wrong and they need to be watchful about any unwelcoming changes in their body and immediately seek medical advice for the same. Osteoarthritis, depression, obesity, and some types of cancers are common female health problems.

Couple of the below mentioned problems are associated with growing age and hence, women must follow a regular check-up screening program to arrest any severe consequences to the medical condition.

Following are some general female problems.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are common in women than men, and especially during their adolescence. Women are fascinated by ‘ideal figure’ and this is the root cause for most of the eating disorders, wherein they literally starve to a limit that actually puts them to the risk of death.

This disorder has been reported to have severe outcomes, such as death in almost 1 in 10 cases. Thus, prompt attention is required to avoid children falling prey to this problem. Adolescent girls should be explained the importance of healthy diet and healthy life. Contact your physician to seek a solution to such problems.

Menstrual Cycle

Menstrual cycle is a vital part of being a woman and it implies your ability to have children. Usually, girls start menstruating between 10 to 13 years of age. If you believe that you are either early or late, you should see your physician. Moreover, after starting to menstruate, some women do not have a regular cycle. Usual cycle is of 28 days. If you do not have periods for more than a month or it is irregular, you should consult gynecologist for the same.

Vaginal Discharge

White discharge from the vagina is normal during periods, however, if the discharge is huge and frequent there may be different reason associated to it. Especially, if the vaginal discharge is green or yellow color, it is certainly worrisome, and demands medical evaluation.


Women are born with all the reproductive eggs they will ever have in their lifetime. During each menstrual cycle, one egg matures and if it has come in contact with the sperm, it fertilizes too. However, women may face problems with their fertility during a certain age and hence, need extra care and medical assistance to overcome the problem.
