What Are The Common Health Concerns Females Have?

Did you know that women are more prone to certain diseases than men are? Some of these diseases include breast cancer, cervical cancer, and osteoporosis.
Acne

Hormonal imbalances, stress, diet or even long hours of wearing a mask can lead to excess oil production, clogged hair follicles or bacteria buildup, causing acne breakouts. Sometimes, it can be long-lasting and persist for years or even decades.

Medications can help to clear up stubborn acne, giving clearer skin.

As an effective reversible treatment, birth control pills help to prevent the release of eggs from the ovaries, preventing pregnancy. It also helps to lessen menstrual cramps, regulate periods and acne breakouts.

Emergency contraception can help to prevent over 95% of pregnancies if taken within 5 days of last sexual intercourse.
