Not That Complicated: How to take care of her reproductive health?
Our definition of physical health includes our digestive health, respiratory health, bone health, but it seldom includes reproductive health. Most women think about their reproductive health and seldom do they do anything actively to take care of it. The stigma around sex also contributes to the lack of awareness about reproductive health. However, it’s about time we start to talk about reproductive health openly and help people be aware of it. Just because reproductive function usually comes later in life doesn’t mean that reproductive organs need not be taken care of from the very beginning. Young-age lifestyles have a significant impact on fertility. So take notes fellas, here’s how you can take care of her reproductive health.
Before you take care of her reproductive health, you need to be aware of it first. I know the female body can seem like a hard maze to find your way through, but trust us, it isn’t that complicated.

Quit and limit bad habits together
Smoking can have endless adverse effects on our bodies and it includes reproductive health issues too. It can severely affect a woman’s ovaries, uterus and other parts of her reproductive system.

Mental health also plays an important role in maintaining reproductive health. The advice to not take stress seems easier said than done, but make efforts towards her own happiness as well as your happiness.

Have Safe Sex
