Women’s Health

The life of a woman goes through several crucial moments, such as the beginning of fertile age, pregnancy, puerperium and menopause, each of which is characterized by different needs in terms of well-being. Our commitment is aimed at providing ad hoc support and information for the needs of women of all ages. At any age, a woman’s body is supported by different contrasts that make it strong and fragile at the same time. Stress, nutrition, sedentary life, disordered habits and above all low frequency of checks can put women’s health at risk, which requires tailored attention at every stage of life – and we at My Canadian Pharmacy are fully equipped to give it.

My Canadian Pharmacy: a responsible and tailored choice

When it comes to women’s health, proper attention should be paid to every symptom or disorder. In this sense, prevention becomes a crucial moment to report more or less serious problems and must be carried out both through specialist visits and with a defined cadence, and through the analysis of changes in the body, in the menstrual cycle, in weight and in related habits especially sleep and physical activity.

Almost everyone in the female universe is faced with recurring problems throughout life, mainly related to stress and connected to the menstrual cycle. In fact, women’s health cannot be separated from its monthly flow, which brings with it some ailments. Among the most frequent are:

  • migraine;
  • insomnia;
  • abdominal swelling, pain and cramps;
  • swelling of the lower limbs;
  • diminished sexual drive;
  • mood changes;
  • back pain and kidney pain.

Stronger in the premenstrual phase, these problems continue even after menopause, which can add to the list a series of ailments related to hot flashes, sweating, tachycardia, pressure problems and intimate itching.

All the aforementioned annoyances may or may not occur in the menstrual period, but if frequent even outside this phase they can be a wake-up call to be taken into consideration and reported to the doctor, especially when they are related to the intimate sphere of female health: if treated promptly, in fact, will not turn into more serious, painful and complex infections to cure, capable of also undermining the potential for fertility.

In addition to the menstrual cycle, with a view to increasing attention to women’s health, stress must be kept under control, which can occur both with anxieties, fears and feeding problems, and with a symptomatology similar to that of the menstrual cycle. To carry out a good prevention and give the doctor correct indications, it is necessary to observe the frequency with which a malaise repeats itself and the period, to better distinguish the factors that may be the cause.

Risks in women’s health

Heart problems, diabetes and breast cancer: female well-being is a goal that must also deal with problems with more serious implications, which can significantly affect women’s health. If the same ailments can also have important consequences for men, several factors make the risk higher in women, even according to recent research.

In particular, the University of Amsterdam has shown with a shock study published in the first few months of 2019 how mortality in the event of a heart attack is higher for women, comparing 5,700 different cases. The research, carried out under the guidance of Hanno Tan, underlined that at the basis of the difference in mortality cases there are different methods of intervention also in terms of timeliness, since it is mistakenly believed that for women heart problems are less frequent.

Another central theme for women’s health and well-being is that of breast cancer, a topic on which medicine and research have been actively engaged for years and on which studies continue to grow: even in this case prevention remains one of the tools at the basis of a fast and incisive intervention.

Today, talking about female health also means giving space to sexual and reproductive health as an integral part of general health and the psycho-physical well-being of women. Sexual and reproductive health has an impact on the quality of personal and emotional life, it is related to the physiological rhythms of monthly hormonal cyclicity and is regulated by delicate mechanisms that involve the production of sex hormones.

Sexual and reproductive health encompasses a significant span of life, starting from the fertile age in which women express their maximum potential and are committed to personal, emotional, family and professional fulfillment. We offer an optimal choice of contraceptives, libido enhancers and sexual wellness products with discreet delivery.

Hormonal contraception plays a key role in this period: through the possibility of autonomously managing the physiological mechanisms that regulate fertility to prevent unwanted pregnancies. This allows women to live the intimacy of a couple with full freedom and serenity, responsibly and consciously managing procreation.

In recent years, a multitude of safe and reliable birth control methods has become available. The woman can identify, with the support of the trusted gynecologist, the contraceptive method that best meets her clinical profile, her personal and couple needs.
