Habits are very important when it comes to keeping sexual health at bay male extra. A complete diet, good hygiene routines or do not miss gynecological check-ups can avoid many problems throughout the life of every woman. To face all the sexual stages successfully, the Spanish Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (SEGO) and the pharmaceutical company Bial have launched the ‘Decalogue of healthy women’.
The data point to the fact that Spanish women still do not pay all the attention they should to their sexual health. One in five young people between the ages of 25 and 35 have never had a Pap smear, according to INE data, and “between 12 and 20% of women will have a sexually transmitted disease throughout their lives”, according to Professor Troyano Luque, Vice President Treasurer of SEGO.
The solution to avoid these future diseases may be to be consistent with some food routines, such as maintaining a diet rich in calcium, or look for the contraceptive method that best suits the needs of each person.
Adapting the rhythm of life to the three stages that every woman goes through during her life (childhood-adolescence, reproductive and menopause) is basic to having good gynecological health. These are the tips to follow that the ‘Decalogue of the Healthy Woman’ proposes.
