Even though it is a fact that women and men alike contract various conditions, in actual sense there are some conditions that affect women differently and more commonly. Added to this, a number of the female health conditions in most go undiagnosed and a number of the drug trials never include female subjects.
Though this is the case, it is to be noted as a fact that there are some health conditions that happen to be quite particular and exclusive to the female gender and some of these are such as breast cancer, menopause, cervical cancer and pregnancy. Notable as well is the fact that compared to men, stats have revealed that more women succumb to conditions such as heart disease. Depression and anxiety is another of the conditions that has been so common with more women as compared to men. Added to these are urinary tract infections which are more common in women than men and as well there are the STIs which have caused women a lot more harm as compared to men. Here are some of the conditions that present more frequently in women that happen to be posing serious health risks to women.
Heart Disease is the first of these we will be taking a look at. According to what has been seen from reports and studies, one out of every four deaths of women in the United States has been as a result of heart disease. While many have somewhat believed that heart disease is one condition that affects more men than women, in actual sense it is one that affects men and women in a near equal rate. However not all women actually appreciate the fact that this is one of the conditions that so affects their livelihoods anyway. Heart disease can be a result of the following conditions; high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoke to mention but a few and these are some of the conditions that close to 50% of the population happens to be commonly exposed to.
Breast cancer is one of the other conditions that has been proved to be such a growing concern and so common with many and particularly the female folk. Generally speaking, breast cancer has been proved to be one of the most aggressive forms of cancers and actually affects a good segment of the global female population. By the way, breast cancer has been so common in many in the developed countries and this is for the reason that there is such an extended life span of those in these countries. For this reason, it is important to ensure that you go for your breast cancer screenings at least once a year.
