As we exit puberty and enter adulthood, we may experience some rather surprising physical and mental upheavals. What are the most common problems in women at this age and how to deal with them?
Although during puberty your period may not have been accompanied by unpleasant side effects, in your early 20s the increased level of the hormone prostaglandin can cause painful menstrual cramps. In these cases, only antispasmodics help somewhat.
The appearance of acne between 20 and 30 is quite an unpleasant surprise, especially if you did not face this problem during your adolescence. Again, we can blame hormones for this, but stress and poor eating habits, as well as smoking, should not be ignored when looking for the causes of annoying pimples on the face. It often turns out that the cosmetic products we use are not of sufficient quality or we do not clean our face properly after using them. This leads to clogged pores and worsening of acne. Consult a dermatologist in time.
Irritation, burning, pain, unpleasant smell - about 70% of women suffer from similar discomfort in the area of the genital organs The main reason for this is sexual intercourse - too often or with too many different partners. The dangerous diseases that sexually transmitted infections lead to - syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes - require us to pay serious attention to our sexual behavior. We will protect ourselves from such problems in two simple ways: oblige our partner to use a condom and limit promiscuous sex. Sexually transmitted diseases require prompt treatment. If you notice similar symptoms, do not delay the visit to your gynecologist.
If as a teenager you had a plump and rounded face, between 25 and 30 it gradually begins to elongate and your cheekbones acquire a brighter outline. This is due to a decrease in subcutaneous fat and the level of collagen in the skin - thus the volume of the face decreases, especially the cheeks.
At the age between 20 and 30, we most often resort to different types and duration diets and exercises We should not look at food as our enemy and embark on a diet just because it's trendy right now. In our quest to shed the few pounds gained from unhe althy eating during our college years, we may contract illnesses such as anorexia and bulimia. Try to see food as pleasure and "fuel" for your body. Take your figure for granted and try to draw attention to your slim waist or beautiful hair instead of lamenting your plump thighs.
The human body is an admirable mechanism, however, as we age, we notice a gradual loss of bone and muscle mass This can become a reason in the mid-30s to gain weight as a result of the slowed metabolism, especially if you have neglected physical activities and do not eat he althily. Be confident that you can handle this problem. It is only required that you start (it is best if you have never stopped) serious work with dumbbells and regular physical exercises 2-3 times a week for 20 minutes.
The fourth decade of a woman's life is filled with many changes and responsibilities - she takes care of children, builds a career, helps her elderly parents, tries to be a brilliant wife and housewife. Unfortunately, not everyone succeeds in each of these roles. Often in this period, relationships break up - marriage is a novel whose end is hard to predict. Depressions and often alcohol and drug abuse follow. Seek help from a psychologist or psychiatrist in time to prevent an emotional breakdown or serious mental illness.
