Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is an incredibly rare condition, but it is highly serious and can affect a number of systems in the body at once. It’s caused by an immune reaction to bacterial toxins. Thankfully it can be treated, but you should always see a doctor if you notice any of the symptoms as it can be fatal if left untreated. While it is difficult to treat at home, there are a number of home remedies for toxic shock syndrome and its prevention.
On average, a woman’s menstrual cycle will last 28 days, however, this can vary from woman to woman. Irregular menstruation occurs when the cycle extends over 35 days or longer. These home remedies for irregular menstrual cycles aim to return the cycle to the normal 28 days-length.
During a woman’s menstrual cycle (her period), the uterus contracts as a way to assist in shedding the lining. What causes the uterus to constrict, is what is called prostaglandins. This hormone-like trigger causes the inflammation and pain, and that overall is what causes the menstrual cramps.
Leukorrhea, or vaginal discharge, is common among women. It is a thin or thick discharge of fluid, white, clear or another color in nature that is sometimes odorless or has an odor. It happens between your menstrual cycles or during pregnancy. It can last from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
At some point in your life you may develop hemorrhoids. The first time it happens it may be indicated by a simple blood smear on your toilet paper, (it may be harder for women to detect and they might think their period is out of cycle), to a full toilet bowl of bright red blood. Both can be a cause for alarm if you’re young and don’t have a history of hemorrhoids.
As the name suggests, vaginal odor is any type of odor that comes from the vagina. It should be noted that is it normal for the vagina to have a smell to it, especially if a woman is on her period. It is only when the smell changes or becomes more pronounced that it may point to a health problem. Vaginal odor is not a problem in itself, but it can be a sign or symptom of a vaginal health problem. For example, if your vagina smells like fish, there is likely something wrong.
Breast pain is not a rare phenomenon and many women get accustomed to it over the period of their adult life. While it is not a normal state of health, it is not always such that should give rise to any alarm as a result of the particulate nature of its occurrence.
