Starting in puberty and throughout a woman’s lifetime her reproductive organs change and develop. The development of a woman’s reproductive system can have a significant effect on sexual intercourse, getting pregnant and general health. Gynecologic conditions can interfere with the proper functioning of the female reproductive system and can cause painful medical conditions.
Female Reproductive Conditions
There are many different kinds of gynecologic conditions that can affect the female reproductive system. Some conditions may be caused by congenital factors, while others may be due to hormonal imbalances. Conditions range in timeframes, and can be temporary or a chronic issue that can cause daily discomfort. Some gynecologic conditions that affect the female reproductive system are:
Urinary Tract Infections
