While getting older can be fun, the aging process can also come with a few embarrassing signs and symptoms.
Our in-home care providers at Qualicare North York want you to know there is no need to be embarrassed by any question you want to ask. Aging happens to everyone—and the symptoms you’re experiencing more than likely happen to other women, too.
What Questions Do You Want to Ask About Aging?
The following might be some women’s health questions you have regarding what happens as you age.
First, have you started to notice you have more hair on your face now than you ever had before? New hair on a woman’s upper lip or chin are caused by hormonal fluctuationsthat naturally occur as a woman moves through life.
If you feel, though, that the hair is becoming a little too excessive, make an appointment with your physician to undergo bloodwork for a hormone check to ensure levels are not too far off where they need to be or whether the hair growth could signal a medical condition.
Do you also happen to *leak* every now and then when performing simple exercises or even just laughing? Stress incontinence is commonamong women, especially as they age.
Fortunately, it’s a solvable problem in most cases. From lifestyle changes to medications to physical therapy, there are steps you can take to reduce the risk of incontinence. If exercises alone are unable to help you find relief from stress incontinence, surgery is an option to help women feel as good as new!
