There are lots of embarrassing health problems and issues that many people definitely don’t want to discuss or feel like discussing, even with their health practitioner. However, that is the wrong attitude to have, since the doctor has seen it and heard it all. When it comes to your health and well-being, no topic should be off-limits and that is why we have decided to provide you with the solutions to some of the most embarrassing health problems.
This is a common problem that most women have to face, but not many have the courage to ask their doctor or their friend about it. If you have a persistent problem of leakage from your nipples, and you are not nursing or pregnant then it could mean that you have a condition known as hyperprolactinemia. It can result in high risk of osteoporosis, infertility and irregular periods. Your doctor may test you for the condition and may also check for a prolactinoma. It may sound scary, but it is easily treatable.
Another embarrassing health problem is sweating through your shirt profusely every day, even when it is not that hot. You may have the problem due to your sweat glands overreacting to its stimuli, which are emotions, hormones and heat. This condition is often brought about due to a side effect to a prescription drug or maybe a symptom of another condition, which could be an infection or even diabetes. You need to tell your doctor about the problem, since he needs to find the underlying source of the problem and then treat it. If you are taking supplements such as iron and zinc, you need to cut down on it, since it leads to excessive sweating.
This can be caused by a variety of things and is quite a common problem. The issue with the libido is quite complicated, since the problem may be both psychological and physical. Women general have low libido during perimenopause, when estrogen levels drop, which includes vaginal dryness. Depression is another common cause, since dopamine is essential to create feelings of lust. Taking antidepressants also kills the libido and you will then have zero interest in sex.
You should consult your doctor about the problem and it may involve taking therapy and medications that have no sexual side-effects on your libido.
