Article 4 talks about how girls are more vulnerable to concussions and how it effects them differently. Female athletes have higher concussion rates, due to their smaller and weaker necks, and their hormones. Hormones contribute to why women have longer and more severe symptoms like headaches, dizziness, nausea, and trouble concentrating. Article 2 states that symptoms resolve quickly, but that isn 't always the case. Athletes during post-concussion rest should not rush to get back to play even if the symptoms are gone.
Bones become weaker and susceptible to fracture as people age and, consequently, it’s one of the main reasons why seniors are more prone to falling accidents. These changes affect the female population more than males; oestrogen helps in controlling the bone forming and resorption processes in the body so, when oestrogen levels fall during the menopausal stage, women become more prone to developing weaker bones. Other than that, the ageing process also causes ligaments to lose their elasticity, which can cause joint stiffness and lead to lower flexibility. To counterbalance these changes, you need to incorporate exercise into your daily schedule. Working out can help you maintain a wide range of motion and maintain good balance, flexibility and coordination, which means you can stay away from injuries even as you grow older.
Once women reach menopause Hormone replacement therapy is advised, as symptoms can often be difficult to cope with, such as night sweats that disrupt sleep patterns (Hailes) Most doctors would advise them to use it for the shortest period possible in order for it to be effective without causing any adverse effects, as the longer they are on the treatment for the higher their risks are for breast cancer (Olsson, Ingvar and Bladström ) and other symptoms. Doctors also advise that oestrogen and progesterone hormone replacement therapy (Stöppler) are used simultaneously to decrease the risk of uterine cancer. Therefore hormone replacement therapy for menopause is not a viable long term solution (Hailes) as the risks outweigh the benefits, and there are other ways to help a patient cope with the effects of
The first tip, in these cases, is to temporarily suspend breastfeeding to prevent gastrointestinal infections also the infant. In addition to pain, more or less intense, the skin reddens and the breast of the new mother becomes hot and tense. Pain and fever are often associated with a widespread sense of fatigue and "broken bones". We must take into account that, if not treated properly, mastitis may lead to a breast abscess, which manifests itself with more pain, swelling, fever and swollen lymph glands axillary. The therapy involves the use of antibiotics and hot packs, besides the use of the breast pump, so as to avoid the stagnation milky.
Whether it be the amount and type of coverage they receive, the sexualisation, stereotypical views they have to fight against, or the failures they may come across, the media is there to cover it. Unfortunately, women have become a victim to an increased amount of challenges when facing the media, though in this period of time in the world, we are working towards a more equal society. This can impact the future generations of athletes and how they believe their efforts in their sport will be seen. If media does not begin to equal out between the genders, it is possible that women’s sports will decrease even

If you don 't make any insulin, which is the case for people with type one diabetes, your blood sugar levels can get dangerously high and if the body makes some insulin but not enough, that is type two diabetes. The ovaries are found only in women. They make the hormones estrogen and progesterone which help develop breasts at puberty, regulate the menstrual cycle, and support a pregnancy. The last gland in the endocrine system are the testes. The testes play a large role in making testosterone and also in making
The adult life is composed of other responsibilities and as a result it also comes with very high anxiety levels, differences in hormones, in values and generally in the most aspects of everyday life. This means that researches examining the adult life in relation to the body image would probably have different conclusions and also they would be very interesting in relation to the differences from age to age. Moreover, there are various psychological factors like anxiety, bad mood, and low self-esteem that break down the good body image and are incriminated for a negative body image (Hewitt & Flett, 1991; Sassaroli & Ruggiero, 2005; Markey & Vender Wal, 2007). Self-esteem as mentioned above seems to be one of the most important risk factors for the dissatisfaction of the body image (Fairburn et al., 2003). As a result, high self-esteem leads to a positive body image, as these two terms are very close to one another.
The fertilized egg in the uterus can implant into the thickened uterline and continue to develop; if the fertilization doesn’t happen the uterline lining begins to shed and this is called menstrual flow. The female reproductive system also produces female sex hormones that maintain the reproductive cycle. During menopause the female reproductive system eventually stops making the female hormones necessary for the reproductive cycle to work. When this happens the menstrual cycle can become irregular and eventually stop. After one year of a woman being without a menstrual cycle she is considered menopausal.
The women may be exposed to conditions which may result in ending a pregnancy as a means or saving the life of the mother such as the heart failure, the severe infections, as well as the severe cases of preeclampsia. The preeclampsia means that a woman develops high blood pressure. The ending of the pregnancy of a woman may be the only option. In this case, if the pregnancy is not ended, the mother's life will be put at risk (Painter, 2012) There may be a spontaneous abortion, or miscarriage. This happens if a fetus stops growing and the body begins to expel such fetus.
