Why Are Women More Likely To Experience UTIs?
(http://ow.ly/B8ls30ms1B8)

Women are more susceptible to urinary tract infections because of the way their anatomy is designed. A woman's urethra is within proximity to her anus. Therefore, it's easier for bacteria like E. coli to make its way into the urethra and travel into the bladder. While there's no way to prevent this from happening entirely, good hygienic practices like wiping from front to back can make all the difference.

What Is an IUD?
(http://ow.ly/afGU30ms1B6)

An IUD is a form of semi-permanent birth control. IUDs are T-shaped devices which are made of plastic. They're carefully inserted into a woman's uterus and prevent sperm from reaching or fertilizing eggs. If at any point you decide that you're ready to start a family, your IUD can be removed.

(http://ow.ly/eRLu30ms1B3)

Stress urinary incontinence is a problem that's particularly common among women who've had vaginal childbirth. If you have stress urinary incontinence, you experience involuntary urine leakage whenever you cough, laugh, or sneeze. Not only is this embarrassing, but it can also leave you planning all of your outings around whether or not you'll be able to access a restroom.

What Is Endometriosis?
(http://ow.ly/cWNk30ms1AY)

Endometriosis is a painful condition in which the endometrium or uterine tissue grows outside of the uterus. When your monthly menstrual cycle occurs, it triggers hormonal changes causing these tissues to become irritated and inflamed. Over time, this can lead to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms including chronic pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, and severe cramping.

(http://ow.ly/C1dt30ms1AR)

Menopause signifies the end of a woman's reproductive life cycle. A woman is said to have entered menopause when she has gone a full 12 months without having a menstrual cycle. During this time, the body stops releasing eggs and reduces estrogen production significantly.
