We've compiled the most important information regarding the science of menstruation and put it in layman's terms. Find out about each phase of menstruation and what happens internally during each cycle.
Many women experience vaginal dryness during the menopause. Luckily, there are a few things women can do to combat vaginal dryness and return to being happy, comfortable, and sexual active.
Rebuilding Vaginal Strength
Women who suffer from narrowing and scarring of their vaginas often experience discomfort during sex, which can be both emotionally and physically traumatizing.
Environmentally Safe Sex
Using vegan condoms is one of the easiest ways to make sure your intimate experiences are not only pleasurable, but also great for the environment too!
Chlamydia is an STD which does not present symptoms in about 50-70% of infected women. Of all the patients infected with Chlamydia that is not detected by their doctor, half will develop pelvic inflammatory disease.
Genital Herpes can be very painful not to mention unsightly and contagious. People with this virus are often subjected to recurrent outbreaks and should seek medical attention as soon as they have reason to believe they might be infected.
Genital Warts take the title of the most common sexually transmitted infection. The genital warts virus is less painful than herpes, and can often go away without treatment. Some people may only experience one outbreak of genital warts before the problem takes care of itself.
Gonorrhea is among one of the more painful and serious sexually transmitted infections and can lead to infertility in both men and women. Gonorrhea bacteria that come into contact with the eye can also cause conjunctivitis.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that remains in the body of whoever gets infected for the rest of their life. There is currently no cure for HIV and no vaccine to prevent people from becoming infected, making HIV extremely serious.
Non-Specific Urethritis is inflammation (pain, redness and/or swelling) of the urethra (tube where urine comes out). It is possible for men and women to have non-specific urethritis but it is more difficult to diagnose in women.
Pubic Lice are tiny parasitic insects that live in coarse body hair, such as pubic hair. They are yellow-grey and about 2mm long. Because of the bug's crab-like appearance, the lice are often known as crabs.
Syphilis is not as common as other sexually transmitted infections but if left untreated, can cause very serious health problems in both men and women. Untreated syphilis may, after many years, start to cause very serious damage to the heart, brain, eyes, other internal organs, bones and nervous system.
Trichomonas Vaginalis is a tiny parasite which causes an infection. In women the infection can be found in the vagina and the urethra (tube where urine comes out). In men it can be found in the urethra.
Thrush can develop in the vagina and on the male and female genitals. It is a very common cause of unusual vaginal discharge – three out of four women will have thrush at some point in their lives, although men usually do not contract thrush.
Bacterial Vaginosis is the most common cause of unusual vaginal discharge which develops when the normal environment of the vagina changes. One in three women will get it at some time. It is not a sexually transmitted infection but can develop after you have had sex.
