Oh yes it`s common, worldwide as well as here in the Middle East and GCC! Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a health problem that affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age (8 – 20% of women globally). Also known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, affected women have a hormonal imbalance and metabolism problems that may affect their overall health and appearance.

Many women have to deal with unwelcomed health issues every day. A very common issue indeed is those dreaded urine drops that slip when they sneeze, cough, laugh hard or exercise, otherwise known as `stress urinary incontinence`.

Being a woman, your chance of suffering from a urinary tract infection is considerable; with some experts ranking your lifetime risk of getting one as high as 1 in 2. As a matter of fact, many women are unfortunate enough to have repeated urinary infections, sometimes for years on end!

During your reproductive years, it is natural to experience some monthly bleeding whenever your period is on. Occasionally though, you may notice some vaginal spotting in between the periods. The term “vaginal spotting” usually describes light bleeding happening outside of monthly periods.

Dear ladies, regular preventative care represents one of the foundations for maintaining health over time. If you wait to visit your gynaecologist only when you have a health concern, it may be too late! Being a woman, you may view the Pap smear as somewhat of a nuisance, or even a few minutes of panic. This might put you off from getting tested, but here is why you should stop avoiding it and book an appointment now.
