Do not ignore them

Health should be maintained by every woman to avoid risk of falling sick. Here are few things you should not ignore about your health
Monitor your blood pressure
There is a common misconception amongst women that an easy to recognise indication of low or high blood pressure is dizziness and fatigue. The truth is that both hypotension and hypertension are silent diseases that often go undiagnosed.
It is thus important that high-risk individuals get their blood pressure tested on a regular basis to prevent future heart disease. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can rupture the blood vessels and cause a brain hemorrhage or result in blood clots, thereby causing a heart attack or brain stroke.
Chew celery sticks or mint leaves instead of tobacco
Giving up tobacco consumption is crucial because cigarette smoking alone doubles the risk of heart disease. To beat tobacco cravings, one can chew gum or eat celery sticks or mint leaves.
Don’t ignore vaginal problems. Taking good care of your vagina is an important part of staying healthy. When it comes to vaginal care, women often misconstrue serious symptoms such as abnormal bleeding or pain, two things that should never be ignored. Vaginal health can affect a woman's fertility, libido (the desire to have sex) and ability to orgasm.
Never ignore severe leg pain
Working women and housewives must never ignore severe leg pain since it can be an indication of peripheral artery diseases (PAD), caused due to blockages in the blood vessels.
Use toothbrushes with soft bristles
Avoid toothbrushes with hard bristles. Gums have a predisposition to shrink or draw back with age, even if they’re healthy. Though the part of the tooth above the gum-line is made of enamel, cementum is the outermost layer of the root surface and it is not as impervious to decay.
