Although STDs are capable of affecting both genders, the impact on men and women is different. In women, this problem can cause long-term issues such as infertility in women. Although most STDs can be readily treated as soon as the symptoms surface, some cases might not throw up any symptom. Some of the curable STDs that can affect women are discussed below:
Gonorrhoea: This STD is caused by bacteria living in mucous membranes of the vagina, urethra, mouth, rectum and eyes and is capable of spreading through contact. The symptoms in women include excessive discharge from the vagina, abdominal cramps, pain in the pelvic region and bleeding from the vagina after sex.
Chlamydia: This STD is a result of a bacterial infection of ‘Chlamydia trachomatis’. Symptoms in females include burning sensation during urination, unusual vaginal discharge and bleeding between periods. Without treatment, the infection might spread to the urinary tract which could potentially cause PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) which is capable of causing problems in pregnancy and even infertility.
Genital Herpes: Genital herpes is generally caused by the herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) or the herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1). The virus is commonly known to be the chief cause of cold sores. Symptoms may appear soon after infection and usually are severe. This includes blisters, which turn into raw and painful sores that scab and heal over time. This might be accompanied by swollen lymph nodes and fever.
Chancroid: This infection is caused by the bacterium ‘Haemophilus Ducreyi’. It occurs most commonly in the vulva (the female external genital organ that includes the clitoris, labia as well as the opening of the vagina). The condition starts out as a tender lump that appears during the incubation period after intercourse. The incubation period generally ranges between 3-10 days. The bump turns into an ulcer i.e. an open sore, due to the death of the cells. This is usually painful.
Syphilis: It is caused by the bacterium ‘Treponema pallidum’ and the disease mainly occurs if you have sexual intercourse without any protection, that too with multiple sexual partners. The other mode of infection is blood transfusion. Symptoms of Syphilis include appearance of ulcers around the genitals or the oral region known as a chancre, severe rashes around the hand or feet coupled with other symptoms of mild fever, headache, throat pain and immense fatigue. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.
My periods got completed on Wednesday & went out with my boyfriend on saturday. We did not had sex neither did he penetrate me. But since we were too close it is possible that a bit of his premature ejaculated liquid has reached my vagina. I have been facing nausea dizziness pain in lower back since Monday. I have eye problem and have power, and I did not wear specs for two days, I have acidity problem. I am pcos patient too. I have been taking rantac 150 for 2 days twice. Acidity has decreased a bit. But back pain is continuing. Is it possible that back pain is because of the posture we took together even though we did not have sex. My weight is 60 kg. and my lower abdomen has more fat. I am having pain now in lower back and in lower abdominal and thighs joint on both sides. And my head is still feeling heavy.

During childhood we must have heard our mother asking us to sit under the sun for at least 15 minutes every morning to experience sun rays on the body. This sounds to be a dull and drab advise but it is certainly important for bone health. Vitamin D has to perform many important tasks in the body. It keeps bones strong by helping body absorb calcium and phosphorus and important key minerals for bone health.
- Vitamin D is very commonly known as Sunshine Vitamin. It is available in food as well as in other dietary supplements. Vitamin D has several important functions in a human body. It helps in promoting calcium absorption, maintaining normal phosphate and calcium levels, promotes cell and bone growth, reduces inflammation. Calcium and Vitamin D together can build stronger bones in women post menopause. It also helps with other disorders that cause weak bones, like rickets etc.
- It is not possible to see the deficiency externally, but it could be seen internally in few ways such as the effected person may find difficulty in thinking clearly, may go through bone pain, frequent fracture in bones, weakness in muscles, unexpected fatigue.
- Many people don’t develop signs until their Vitamin D levels get tremendously low. There are several factors which contribute to the rising incidence of vitamin D deficiency in people today
- and this includes wearing sunscreen, not spending much time under sun, having pigmentation on skin which restricts rays to go under skin, mothers who breastfeed infants for longer span of time, being obese which naturally increases Vitamin D requirements in them. Some people are born without the ability to process vitamin D from birth.
- It is necessary to get Vitamin D3 in body either externally or internally. Food items like fatty fish like Salmon, tuna etc are considered to be the best source of Vitamin D. Cheese and egg yolks can also provide desired amount of Vitamin D3 in our body. As Vitamin D3 deficiency is difficult to dignose normally there are many conditions in which you can see this deficiency commonly which include someone who is above 50 years of age, someone who has kidney disorders or even someone who has darker skin color.
- Eating correct is the only key to live healthy. Getting enough Vitamin D either through your diet or a supplement should be planned by women to prevent osteoporosis in future.
Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer and accounts for 90 percent of all kidney cancers. Young children can develop another kind of kidney cancer termed as Wilms’ tumour. According to a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), renal cell carcinoma has increased manifold over the past decade. The primary reason is the improvement of imaging techniques and the lack of healthy lifestyle practices by most adults.
Possible Causes of Renal Cell
Carcinoma There is still no conclusive evidence reported by any scientist about the exact cause of renal cell carcinoma. What doctors do know is the fact the introduction of renal cell carcinoma triggers when few cells of the kidney acquire a mutation in the DNA of a person. Mutation communicates the cell to divide and grow uncontrollably. This leads to an accumulation of cells that eventually forms one or multiple tumours and grows beyond the kidney.
Risk Factors For Renal Cell Carcinoma
Some of the common risk factors for renal cell carcinoma include the following:
- Old age
- Persistent smoking
- Exposure to substances such as herbicide, cadmium etc.
- A family history of renal carcinoma
- Inherited syndrome such as Hippel-Lindau disease, tuberous sclerosis complex, Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome etc.
- Pre - existing kidney failure
Typical Symptoms of Renal Cell
Carcinoma Renal cell carcinoma is hard to detect in its early stages. There is no routine test either that can readily diagnose this condition. However, certain symptoms such as blood in urine, fatigue, sudden loss of appetite, fluctuation of fever, pain in the shoulder or back area, sudden weight loss etc. can indicate renal cell carcinoma.
Options for Renal Cell Carcinoma Most renal cell carcinoma is treated with surgery. There are several types of surgeries, and depending on the stage and spread of cancer, one of the types is opted for.
- Nephrectomy- This is a type of surgery that involves removing the entire kidney, some healthy tissues at the border, and other tissues such as adrenal gland, lymph nodes etc. The surgeon might perform an open or laparoscopic nephrectomy.
- Partial nephrectomy– Under this type of surgery, the surgeon removes a tumour and a part of the healthy tissue from the border of the kidney. This form of surgery can be done via a robotic, laparoscopic or open procedure.
- Cryoablation- This is a non-surgical method of treating renal cell carcinoma. Here, a needle is inserted into the kidney using image guidance, ultrasound, and cold gas. It freezes the cancer cells and limits their growth.
Apart from these, some other methods to counter advanced or recurring kidney cancer include targeted therapy, radiation therapy, biological therapy, partial surgery of the kidney, clinical trials etc.
