    No, women are so indulged into their families that they are not focusing on themselves, their health. Even when they do it turns out to be too late for the diagnosis.
    Women today are so busy fulfilling their families’ demands that they’re not even aware of the diseases that could take their lives.
    Breast cancer is one of the leading disease that is spreading so fast among the women, which could even take their lives, among the women living in the country 57% of women are diagnosed with the symptoms of breast cancer which they were not even aware of to be existing as the ones causing breast cancer. Only 1 out of 10 women are found to be known about the breast cancer disease around the country.
    Menorrhagia, uterine prolapse, retroverted uterus and many other diseases that can cause a serious threat to women’s health are today unknown to the women. Women should be aware about their physical health, with everything they go through they deserve the right to stand physically fit.

    Women are so indulged in their routine and daily lives that they neglect their health and their effects. Men and women both suffer from some diseases but there are chances that they ignore their health and consider their family and their health as a priority.
    But there are some who are unaware about mot female-related disease and if they aren’t aware how they will know the precautions and their symptoms. Diseases like breast cancer, ovarian and cervical cancer, pregnancy-related complications are dangerous and if they know least or don’t know regarding that, they will never know if it has happened to them or they are having some symptoms of that disease.
    Most commonly observed autoimmune diseases like virus or panic attacks, osteoporosis, etc. which are known but not cured or taken care of because they assume it’s common according to age, but after all, these are also diseases and should be known. If they don’t know this common disease, they will not be aware of harmful ones. A large number of women are not aware of the female-related disease but this should not continue because once-neglected is dangerous for whole life.
    Education and awareness through campaigns and workshops can help in spreading knowledge about female related disease needs to take up, not only for women’s to be aware but as an individual everyone should be aware.

    The simple answer to this question would be no! No matter how far we have developed in terms of medical sciences, the sad reality at the ground level remains that our women do not have the equality that our constitution aims for. Women are facing many gender related medical problems such as mensuration problems, teen age pregnancies, breast cancer and genital mutation. Women just do not have enough freedom to even talk about the medical issues.
    The problem lies deep in our patriarchal thinking. We have regarded gender a very high importance when it comes to which gender will have right and access to basic facilities. Females are heavily dependent on their families and the families dictate what is right and what os wrong. For most of the time, they do not even know that they have any medical issues. The families disregard most of the female problems as normal occurance and a mundane affairs. This exacerbate the issue and many a times, medical emergency has to be dealt with. Most of the rural women relies on the mid wives to have their babies delivered. This is just not right when our constitution mandates in the term of directive principles that our government should make sure that a proper medical infrastructure is available.
    The whole problem lies in the deep rooted patriarchal set up of our society. We are just not letting our women to explore and learn about their medical issues, citing the taboo that is associated with it. The need of hour is the spread of awareness of medical issues. We have to make women more and more aware in order to normalise these issues. Families should realise that no medical problems are a mundane affair and when a problem is reoccurring, female needs medical attention.

    Health issues are very commonly occurring in the human body both male and female. But these health issues remain unnoticed in the female body. The female body is more complicated than the male. She undergoes many changes during her life span. The first change we see starts from puberty in which she often becomes the prey of bad menstrual hygiene. After that she becomes has to sustain pregnancy which is a crucial period in their life. After some age she has menopause in which she has drastic change like weakening of bones, fatigue, hormonal imbalance etc. life of women is really tough she has many changes in her body but she sometimes doesn’t care about her body and health due to busy life as she is a daughter, a wife, a mother and has to take forward many relations in her lifetime.

    Mostly those women got illness who are not very well concern about medical knowledge and hygiene. They take these diseases very lightly and don’t care even her family member neglect her health issues. Most women nowadays have problem-related menstrual cycle due to an unhealthy environment and eating habits such as premenstrual dysphoric disorder, polycystic ovary disorder, endometriosis and many more often lead to the uterus or vigina cancer which fatal. As women have to carry a child she some times due to unhygienic condition leads to death.

    Urinary tract infection is one of the common disease caused to women than men during her menopause. As women have excessive blood loss during her pregnancy she often suffers from anaemia. Today most women are fighting cancer due to their inability to fight.
    We should try to educate women in rural area about health and hygiene as this will only lead to a healthy country. If women are healthy then their offspring also be healthy.

    There are some female-related conditions that women should not ignore and that’s for their health. Like nowadays women are stressed out of their daily routine and they neglect their health. They just have to remember that if they stay healthy, it can lead to having great offspring, which is the aim and purpose of life. Women are the first people that have to be aware of women-related diseases. Since they are used to spend a lot of time, they neglect their health and then have a major issue with them. There are many problems faced by women of different ages and social strata. Every day millions of women face some sort of health problem. The problems are not solved if they find a doctor nearby or visit hospitals. They suffer the pains and live with it.

    All women should know about cancers, that are breast, cervical, ovarian, and pregnancy so that they can take all precautions related to these diseases and how to deal with the symptoms and pregnancy. Breast cancer affects two in every 100 women in the USA this includes mothers, daughters grandmothers, and many more who care for this disease are young or old there out to help everyone. The entire society should be able to know about women’s health problems and they should be aware that how to take precautions for female diseases. This will help them to get rid of diseases before permanent damages happen.

    In most cases, women are aware of diseases like croup, fever, cold, and so on. What they do not know is something such as calico. Calico is a disease that does not show symptoms in the early stages. By the time the symptoms appear, it has already entered a late stage. Women do not realize this and continue to apply for herbal medicine. Calico has entered a chronic stage and becomes incurable. The domestic medicine that women use does not treat female diseases properly.

    `Women-related diseases are different from ordinary diseases; they are not as simple or easy as other diseases. Women-related diseases are not common. Women-related diseases also greatly harm the maternal condition of women and can also cause serious consequences in the future. They do not have a clear understanding of women’s disease, which is more harmful than men’s, but they do not know what harmful disease they can get. Most female-related diseases can be prevented. Unfortunately, several women are not aware of the causes of these problems. More than 50% of women experience health problems like cancer or stroke. Most commonly observed autoimmune diseases like virus or panic attacks, osteoporosis, etc. which are known but not cured or taken care of because they assume it’s common according to age, but after all, these are also diseases and should be known.

    A major number of women’s are not aware of the female-related disease, it’s very important for every female should at least have basic information because it can cause health issues to female in the future, when we know about diseases we are ready to take preventions and we become more alert to diseases, also we only visit to doctor when we are sick and have any health issues other than very few people do the health checkup, and the pandemic had made us all learn that nothing is more important in life than our health. Having good immunity helps a lot for fighting any diseases, women need to make their immunity strong by doing any form of exercise it can be walking, Zumba, yoga, or going to the gym because all these things keep your body moving and improves blood circulation. Female should maintain hygiene in private parts if she experiences any pain should go to the doctor but instead, they ask their family and friends get advice from them which not a good thing to do. Eating painkillers is just going to stop the pain for some period of time. Females should have knowledge about diseases such as breast cancer, endometriosis, excess body weight, and less body weight. I think women think a lot about their problems so they easily get problems such as high blood pressure, sugar, and strokes usually. I think women should be clear about their lifestyle choices do not get an addiction to alcohol, smoking, unhealthy junk food. Women mostly get caught up in family, career, and parenting so they do not prioritize health which is not good. Because healthy choices will always help people a lot in many ways. Also, women who live in rural areas don’t even know about diseases our health ministry should start training females about the diseases.

    It’s very sad to say that most of the female, specially in India, don’t possess the initial awareness about their own health.
    First, in our society, it’s a stigma going on and on that talking about sex or sex related topics or some genital disease, is a disgrace to society. We should not discuss about it in front of everyone. Only the closest one and people having same sex are allowed to do so, in private though. So, there’s a scarcity of awareness between children or even in some adults about genital disease.
    Second, if we talk on women specially, it’s much harder for them. As usually our Indian woman are not even supposed to raise her voice or talk in between the regular conversation. How can we expect to talk freely on female disease?
    Even some female never talk about periods with that child who didn’t have her puberty yet. As a result even regular monthly periods seems more frightening.
    About female disease like, having bone damage due to deficiency of calcium, most women are not even aware or possess the perfect information regarding it. Women who have, lack to serve own self. Whether it’s working women or housewife, our society expect women to work more and more and serve their families and children. Even sometimes we get to hear the quotes like, what a woman’s life after marriage! Women should serve selflessly Or, serving family, bearing children is the utmost duty for a woman to serve. So, basically it’s not only our expectation ,but we order that a mother or a wife has no right to think and care about herself, all she has to do is to serve her family. We somehow treat women like a child bearing machine, but forget about the general awareness about proper health care. In survey, it’s proved that 93% of death at the time of child birth happens due to some easily recoverable disease, already existed in women body like increase of heart rate, anemia, high pressure or misguided abortion.
    In case of genital disease like vaginal cancer, vaginal cest, breast cancer are the most ignored facts in our women society. Lacking of sense of proper hygiene during periods or child birth leads to fatal disease. But the worst case is, these facts are not only true about the women from rural region, it’s an explicit truth in the most parts of our society.
    Either women don’t have awareness or they’re not applying it into daily basis. As a result, disease like breast and vaginal cancer are spreading like worms in our society, resulting women fatalities and a disturbing sex ratio.
    So, if we want a proper women empowerment, it’s an absolute necessity for government to take strict measures and abolish the social stigmatization about female disease.

    Absolutely not, women is never aware about the female related disease. She is so pierced in the day-to-day life routine that she don’t find time to look out for the changes in her body that might be a small sign of danger diseases. Women are habitual to put their health at lowest in their priority list.
    Many unknown diseases develop in them but due to lack of awareness women never finds out the actual problem and end up being in big disease. Estrogen production, sexual disease and fertility concerns are gender-specific diseases which women suffer every other day. Some women are not getting the right treatment due to unavailability of the resources and some are not enough known of the symptoms.
    Commonly women are being dead due to the breast cancer. This is one of the disease which is highly affecting women and still women are not fully aware of the symptoms. Even if they feel the pain or lumps they ignore them and after few days they are being diagnosed by a breast cancer. It is largely women’s fault of not takingthe changes that their body is showing seriously.
    It is mandatory that all women should have a proper knowledge of the varied women health issues, especially about their reproductive system. By installing more campaigns and movements for the awareness of health issues faced by women we can reduce the number of health problem and the right d treatment will be given to the specific diseases. We need more discussion around these topics and get our women educated with the basics things that matters for our body the most.

    Women are the backbone of a family and their family’s health is dependent upon their health. Women face many health issues that are different from men and many of which they aren’t even aware of. These issues need to addressed and improved for their own emotional and physical well-being.
    Women in a family many times compromise on their health and that’s why it is very important to increase awareness and support each other.
    Women’s lives have become busier than before as they are burdened with the work outside and inside the home. Women’s health gets left behind in the chaos of daily life. Women should go for annual health check-ups. Early detection of any kind of disease will help them cure any kind of disease faster and better.
    Women are unaware of the fact that they are more prone to heart diseases as compared to men. It’s the leading cause of their death. This happens due to excessive stress and workload. Breast Cancer is the most aggressive form of cancer which affects the female population. Cervical cancer is very common in women. It is the growth of abnormal cells in the lining of the cervix in an uncontrolled manner. This disease is caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and for early detection routine PAP smear test is necessary. Women should consult a doctor whenever there is a deviation from their normal menstrual cycle. Women are more prone to Osteoporosis and it occurs mainly after the age of 50 years. Women face hormonal fluctuations which can contribute to depression and anxiety. PMS or premenstrual syndrome can lead to intense symptoms of anxiety. Women also have to go through postpartum depression and menopause which can create stronger emotional symptoms of anxiety and tiredness.
    It’s important that women are aware of these conditions and they also need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Regular physical activity and awareness can improve these conditions.
