    Hanging out in sweaty gym clothes

    Do you rush for dinner immediately after a sweaty session? While you may be saving time by doing that, you may also be encouraging growth of yeast in your sweaty gym clothes if you do not take them off  immediately; such infections thrive in moist environment.

    Using your phone during examination

    Believe it or not, some women prefer to use their phone during examination. Whatever the reason for using a cellphone during examination may be, it disconnects you from your gynaecologist. You should stay connected or at least maintain eye contact during the exam.

    Assuming that heavy menstrual bleeding is normal

    If you experience heavy bleeding during your menstrual cycle, don’t ignore it assuming it is normal to soak pads every two hours. The average blood loss during an entire menstrual period should be about 80 mm, in other words it should not be more than 5 tablespoonfuls. So, consult your doctor instead of wasting tons of pads and tampons.

    Self-treating what you think is a yeast infection

    We bet the first thing you do is buy an over-the-counter medication for yeast infection at the first sign of vaginal discharge or itching. But, what if it’s not yeast infection? Relying on self-prescribed medication may delay a proper diagnosis and make symptoms worse in the meantime. Image Source: Getty
