How to Deal With Health Issues No One Wants to Talk About

There are many embarrassing things about being a human in general, but women are sometimes more prone to them. These mysteries of womanhood and aging can be a real pain, literally, but there are things you can do about them so that you can live a less embarrassing life.

For some women, life revolves around where the nearest bathroom is, or watching the back of your pants in the mirror (just in case). But you can start to live more freely with some of the following tips. You’ll find numerous remedies for each category below.


The Period

They say it’s a sign that you’re now a woman, but for most women the menstrual cycle is just a pain. It’s all about cramps, leaks and mood swings. Of course, there are plenty of remedies out there for all of the ailments that come with that time of the month, and all women go through it until menopause.

Don’t beg for menopause though, young ladies. You may want your period to stop, but when it stops a whole list of others issues start to creep. Not the least of which are those hot flashes that women going through menopause must deal with.

For cramps, you can take an over the counter med, or try a heating pad and a nice hot cup of chamomile tea. Trying to avoid messy leaks? Sometimes pads can be a better, safer choice than tampons, though not as comfortable for some people. And, as far as those hot flashes and mood swings go, look into herbal remedies for the relief you need.

The Leaks

There are more women than you think suffering from light to moderate bladder leakage out there. Over 13 million people in America suffer from incontinence, and over half of them are women. You are definitely not alone, so there is no reason to be embarrassed. In fact, you shouldn’t be too embarrassed to tell your doctor about your issue, since they may be able to help.

You may be able to find relief through herbal remedies, like marshmallow root tea or drinking more cranberry juice. But if that doesn’t work for you and you have no luck with over the counter medications, your doctor may be able to suggest a prescription or even surgery depending on how bad your issue is.

In the meantime, you can protect yourself from embarrassment by wearing panty liners or other protective panty gear to keep leaks from leaking through your pants. And, just remember, you are not alone.

Horrible Hemorrhoids

The older you get the more likely you are to suffer from hemorrhoids. In fact, it’s believed over 75 percent of people will suffer from them at some point. Most of the time they are minor and just irritating, causing some pain and bleeding.

It’s rare that hemorrhoids grow big enough to cause a major issue. Your minor hemorrhoid issue may easily be dealt with by using some cooling pads, wiping more gently, and relaxing in a lukewarm bath.

For symptoms that are harder to deal with, natural hemorrhoids treatment products may be the answer you are looking for. For fast relief search for products that use natural ingredients.

Hair There

Another embarrassing thing that usually comes with age for ladies is hair growing in places you just don’t want it to be. You can wax, shave, and bleach all you want but that chin hair, mustache, and that strange white hair popping out of your forehead or earlobe is going to keep coming back.

Again, you aren’t the only woman dealing with this issue. When you get tired of plucking and shaving, look into electrolysis and other treatments. Talk to your doctor about hormones as well.

Embarrassing issues that are just part of nature shouldn’t be keeping you from showing your face or making your way into public situations. Remember that you aren’t the only one suffering, and there is help out there.
