can also contain substances that have not been confirmed as being essential to life, but are marketed as having a

beneficial biological effect, such as plant pigments or

polyphenols.

5 Factors That Impact Women’s Health

Multiple and frequent pregnancies:

Multiple pregnancies, the uterus muscles become weak and may fail to contract post-delivery. This condition can result in postpartum haemorrhage, i.e. excessive loss of blood after delivery. Unfortunately, over 100000 women die each year from pregnancy-related causes in India.

Ignorance and illiteracy:

Poor hygienic conditions can lead to many diseases like human papillomavirus

(HPV) infection which leads to cervical cancer. It could also lead to genital warts, urinary tract infection (UTI) and other serious health issues.

Lack of Nutrition:

Lack of knowledge about dietary pattern during pregnancy and breastfeeding

stages is crucial, but in most cases, the women are not aware or ignorant towards

maternal and reproductive

health. .

More than half of women suffer from anaemia,

caused by malaria, hookworm infestation and from inadequate intake of iron and

folic acid..

Skewed Sex Ratio:

The Census of India 2011 has shown the lowest child sex ratio since India’s independence in 1947. The rate has dropped to 914 females for every 1,000 male children between 0 to 6 years old. This indicates the society’s preference for a male child. This leads to women getting a sex determination test, multiple abortions, or most commonly in rural areas, this leads to female infanticide. Diarrhoea remains one of the major killers of young girls and a formidable challenge to the health system.

Violent Crime against Women:

Violence against women is also a health problem, but it is sadly not considered one

and ignored. Every five minutes a violent crime is reported against women in

India. This is a serious issue because it depletes a woman’s emotional and physical strength.

Side Effects and Drug Interactions

Dietary supplements may seem safe or mild because they’re natural. Many think that something natural couldn’t hurt them.

Yet, serious side effects and drug interactions can occur when taking dietary supplements.

For example, supplements such as aloe vera, fenugreek, and vanadium may cause excessive bleeding during surgery or interact with anesthetics.

Other supplements may interfere with prescription medications. For example, ginseng may interfere with the drug warfarin’s ability to prevent blood clotting.

St. John’s wort, which people often take for depression, can interact with antidepressants, as well as many other prescription medications.

Your health care provider is the best resource for assessing the risks and benefits of taking a dietary supplement. He or she should know the potential side effects of supplementsand the risk for interactions with your other medications.
