Reproductive Health

Stress, a sedentary lifestyle and irregular eating habits can contribute to reproductive health issues in your 20s and 30s. From infertility to Poly Cystic Ovary Disorder (PCOD), we discuss some common problems, their causes and treatments.


Infertility means not being able to get pregnant after one year of trying (or six months if a woman is 35 or older). Women who can get pregnant but are unable to stay pregnant may also be infertile.


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a health problem that affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS have a hormonal imbalance and metabolism problems.


Regular menstrual periods in the years between puberty and menopause are usually a sign that your body is working normally. Irregular or heavy, painful periods are not normal.
