Genital Pain

Genital discomfort and recurring pains can be quiet disturbing to people of all ages. Usually adult men and women suffer anguish rather than seeing a doctor to find out out if there is anything wrong. The causes that are associated with this condition are wide and varied. Sometimes it can a symptom of a much bigger problem and sometimes it is nothing to worry about. The fact that we know it can indicate an underlying disease or condition can be a serious cause of worry. So to understand the nature, cause and cure for the pain it is best to get a diagnosis. Treating genital pains and getting the required medical help depending upon the seriousness of the situation is necessary for people suffering from this problem. The NHS sexual health hub is a platform for discussing and creating awareness about this problem.

Genital pain in men, women and children can be explained in most cases. In grown up people, this can be an indication of a sexually transmitted disease that has been contracted. It is not necessary that every time a person experiences pain in his private parts, it means that he or she has contracted an STD. But, it is best to be sure and aware of what are the steps one must take if he/ she experiences excessive discomfort.  Infection and traumas can cause pain in the genital area such as the scrotum, penis, testicles in men and vulva, vagina, and the clitoris in women.

Are Weight Loss Drugs the Answer?

Losing weight: a battle against yourself

A recent study by the United Nation has shown that the United Kingdom has the highest level of obesity in Wesern Europe, with about a quarter of its adult population being obese. This is a morbid condition that worsens people's lifestyle and health and it even leads to preventable death.

The traditional -and by now, best- way to tackle obesity is a combination of excersise and a correct diet. However, for one reason or another, most people find it really difficult to stick to these two instructions.

Testing for Meningitis

What is Meningitis?

Meningitis is a medical condition in which the protective membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord become infected, causing damages to the nerves and the brain. Meningitis is most common in babies and children younger than five years; however, anyone can suffer from this condition as can be seen in this recent story where a woman lost her husband to meningitis. Her husband who initially complained of fever and headache became completely unresponsive about five hours after she contacted the NHS non-emergency service. Two days later, he was taken off of life support and it was confirmed that he died of meningitis. According to the NHS, it was a busy period, explaining the five hours delay before they were finally able to get the woman’s husband to the hospital.

Types of Meningitis
