How aging affects female private part and possible solutions

 Probably you’ve been thinking there are some parts of your body that will be spared the indignities of ageing. It’s now time to discard that thought.

 

The truth is, as you age, whether you are single, married, healthy or unhealthy, your body will go through some changes and the results will be shown in your body parts – including your sex organs. You will wake up one day and realise that the organs are gradually changing – in appearance, size, sensitivity and function.

 

However, experts say this is not a reason to panic…because there are certain steps you can take to make the changes bearable as you age.

 

Breasts shrinks

As women get older, they also experience changes in their sex organs specifically the breasts and vagina. As a woman ages, her breasts lose their firmness, change shape, shrink in size and become more prone to certain abnormal lumps.

 

 



  • In fact, from around the age of 40, women should expect their breasts to change in size and shape.

 

  • You may notice that your breasts shrink in size, sometimes by a cup size or more, (unless you put on weight, in which case your breasts may get bigger).

-Declining oestrogen levels at the menopause make breast tissue dehydrated and less elastic, so your breasts lose their once rounded shape and begin to sag.

 

  • As the years go by, you might also notice a wider space between your breasts. Also, the area around the nipple (the areola) tends to become smaller and may nearly disappear.

 

Dense breasts

Young women who have not yet gone through the menopause often have what’s known as dense breasts.

 

Dense breasts contain more glandular and less fat tissue than usual. It’s not the same as having firm breasts and has nothing to do with how big or what shape your breasts are. Having dense breasts isn’t abnormal and isn’t something you can change.

 

But a potential drawback is that dense breasts can make breast cancer screening more difficult because the dense tissue can mask potential tumours on a mammogram.

 

Breast tissue tends to become less dense as you get older, especially after the menopause, so it becomes easier to detect breast cancers on a mammogram.

 

Breast lumps

Breast lumps are common around the menopause period….They’re usually cysts, which are harmless lumps filled with fluid. But if you notice a lump, go for screening – see your doctor to rule out breast cancer, which is most common in women over 50.

 



Other warning signs of breast cancer include:

~puckering of the skin
~nipple changes (like scaling or discharge) ~a swollen, red or inflamed breast.

 

Loss of pubic hair.

When a woman ages, it also shows in her vaginal area in terms of greying, thinning, and loss of pubic hair. “Usually you don’t lose the hair entirely, but a lot can be lost,” says Dr Yael Swica. Scalp, leg, and underarm hair may also thin, especially after menopause.

 

On the bright side. This means you’ll need to shave less as you get older  On the not-so-bright side..hair begins to appear elsewhere. There are women who gain hair on their face and other places they don’t want….Fortunately, there are ways to combat this problem, like creams and laser treatments, which are discreet and fairly inexpensive.

 

Vagina shrink

Swica explains that aging also affects the vagina as well as the vulva…due to the loss of sex hormone in women called oestrogen. The loss of this sex hormone (oestrogen) can result in dramatic changes…such as.. in the appearance and function of the vagina. The vaginal opening can shrink, and the length of the vagina can shrink. You can also get irritation. The irritation occurs because the vaginal walls become thinner, losing elasticity, and especially moisture. Anywhere from 20 to 50 per cent of women start to have this complaint of burning, itching – and these are chronic sensations which with sex, becomes more pronounced. And that’s when they’ll really notice it because it’s painful.” Meanwhile, while sex is the main instigator of itchiness.. there are some people who notice it at other times, perhaps when they are walking or exercising.

 

Tips for preventing breasts, vagina problems

Although there are some aging problems that can’t be completely prevented, experts say the following tips can help women maintain good breast and vagina health.

 

Practice good posture:

When you slouch and have poor posture, you’re giving gravity more opportunity to pull at your breasts. But, standing or sitting in a good position with your back straight and your shoulders back, can help support the breasts and even give you a natural lift.

 

Maintain a healthy weight:

Do some exercise and try not to gain or lose weight too quickly.

Eat a well-balanced diet.

 

Drink plenty of water:

Keep your skin healthy and hydrated to try to preserve its elasticity

 

Don’t smoke: It’s not healthy for you or your breasts.

 

 



Continue to have sex:

The more you have sex, the easier it is to keep having it. Think of your vagina as a “use it or lose it” body part.

When you don’t have intercourse, the vagina becomes more rigid and vaginal tissue less elastic.

 

Wear a supportive nursing bra during the day and while you’re pregnant or breastfeeding:

A nursing bra provides support to the ligaments in your breasts as they grow and become heavy with breast milk.

 

Knowledge is power, the most important thing to do with this information is to digest and make adequate use of it by understanding it fully.
