8 Warning Signs Women Usually Ignore As Regards Their Health

Women's bodies are constantly changing, making it difficult for them to detect abnormalities in their early stages.

In reality, the average woman waits around 13 weeks after first feeling signs of a serious condition before consulting a doctor. However, by paying close attention to even minor changes in your body, you will be able to preserve your physical health and avoid future difficulties.

8. Your stomach is bloated.

Bloating is a typical feature of some women's monthly cycle. However, if you are not prone to bloating and have been feeling it for more than two weeks, this could be the first symptom that your body is out of balance.

Bloating can last for days or even weeks, while it might disappear in a matter of hours. Aside from that, persistent bloating could be an indication of bust or ovarian cancer.

7. You have pimples on your chin.

Your body produces more estrogen and progesterone about two weeks before menstruation. Because of the change in hormone levels, you may get an acne outbreak on your chin, which should go away after a while.

However, if you experience pimples on your jaw or chin on a regular basis, it could indicate that your hormones are out of whack and you should visit a doctor before it's too late.

6. You experience pain while working out.

If you frequently have pain in the pelvic region while running, walking, or even standing for an extended period of time, this could indicate that your endometrium, the inner layer of your uterus, is growing outside of where it is meant to.

5. You have lower back and leg pain.

Lower back pain is fairly typical during a woman's monthly period, therefore it is acceptable. Endometriosis is more likely if you feel pain in your lower back and shoulders before, during, and after menstruation, as well as muscular tightness in these areas.

Other typical endometriosis symptoms include numbness, tingling, and discomfort in the legs. This type of pain may spread to one or both of your legs and worsen before to your period.

4. You have blood clots during your period.

Everyone's period is unique - it can be lighter, darker, or heavier, for example. It's also very normal to observe a clot or two every now and again.

However, if your blood turns dark and the clots are regular and large in size, you may have uterine fibroids. These non-cancerous uterine growths can cause irregular bleeding and even bladder problems.

3. You are uninterested in your favorite foods.

Do you constantly feel stuffed and struggle to complete even a little meal? Have you recently lost your appetite? All of these changes in your typical eating patterns could be symptoms of ovarian cancer, especially if they are paired with abdominal pain and changes in your bowel habits.

2. You're losing your hair.

Hair loss is one of the visible indicators of insufficient testosterone, a hormone that promotes and maintains healthy hair production. Patchy hair on your head is a sure symptom of an imbalance, and it can progress to baldness over time.

Body hair can also be affected, though this symptom may be less obvious, especially if you shave your legs and armpits on a regular basis.

1. You're either too hot or too cold all of the time.

If you're never comfortable at room temperature, you're definitely suffering from a hormonal imbalance. One cause of such an imbalance could be low estrogen levels, a hormone that affects female reproduction.

Its levels normally fluctuate throughout your life and menstrual cycle, but there may be occasions when your body's production of it is compromised.

Your body temperature might be affected by estrogen levels. Low estrogen, on the other hand, produces heat flashes, while much estrogen makes you feel cold in your hands and feet all the time.

Remember to share this information with your relatives and friends.
