Women’s Reproductive Health Advice #1: The Monthly Cycle

Women’s Reproductive Health Advice #2: Diet is the key
It does not matter how many times we say this, your diet is the key to your physical and mental health. There is no better gift than being healthy and no matter day than today to start practicing a healthy lifestyle. Fast food, junk, diet food, cola, there is so much non-sense out there on the racks that it is impossible to escape. We suggest you to try the ‘70/30’ policy. For most part of the week, let’s stick to the raw and the greens and 30% of the times, you can indulge. Sounds like a deal?
Women’s Reproductive Health Advice #3: Vital Vitamins
It is a no ‘epiphany’ that vitamins and minerals contribute to physical health. But did you know, magnesium and zinc define how you feel down there?
PMS can increase or decrease with magnesium levels in your body. Migraine, mood swings, irritation, and pain can be subsided with magnesium pills.
With more and more GMOs and fertilization of plants, the levels of magnesium (which are already low in food sources) are further more being negatively affected. Add Magnesium tablets, after consultation with your doctor, in your diet.
Women’s Reproductive Health Advice #4: Its Okay to Use Lubricants
Now that we can ‘acceptably’ talk about safe sex practices, we would like to go a step further and speak about using lubricants, when in need. Yes, ladies. It has nothing to do with your sexual drive or your attraction towards your partner. The level of lubrication can get affected because of medications, over all well-being and stress levels. Using a lube is an option for a successful sex life.
Women’s Reproductive Health Advice #5: No Addiction
Yes, we have to say this in the end. No matter how disheartening this one is, you must avoid smoking if you are looking for better reproductive health. It impacts your body in the long run more than you know.
A woman’s body is much more complex than a man’s body. Exercising a little more caution can do more good than harm.
