More and more women are now troubled by uterine fibroids, which are mainly caused by excessive estrogen secretion, hormonal imbalances, and irregular sexual activity. Let's follow the editor to learn more.
Can sexual dysfunction lead to uterine fibroids?
According to traditional Chinese medicine, uterine fibroids belong to the category of "Zheng Jia" (a disease caused by lumps in the abdomen).
The formation of "Zheng Jia" is often related to the weakness of Zhengqi and the imbalance of qi and blood.
Traditional Chinese Medicine explains "Zheng Jia": If a woman is a person of moderate temperament and has a disharmony between husband and wife, it will inevitably affect the seven emotions. If the seven emotions are injured internally, the qi mechanism is not smooth, the qi and blood are imbalanced, and the qi stagnation and blood stasis occur for a long time, it can be considered as "Zheng Jia".
It can be seen that normal sexual stimulation between couples can promote the normal progress of neuroendocrine systems and the normal and good secretion of hormones in the human body. However, long-term sexual dysfunction can easily cause hormonal imbalances, leading to chronic pelvic congestion and inducing uterine fibroids.
What are the hazards of sexual dysfunction
Irritable and sweaty
Couples at this age often have already passed their most passionate years, and with the increasing pressure of life and work, the frequency and quality of sexual activity between couples have decreased. Some couples may not even have sex for a few months.
At this age, women have a strong sexual desire, and their hormone secretion increases. However, due to long-term lack of sexual activity, hormones will accumulate in the body. When they accumulate to a certain amount, they will affect the human nervous system, leading to symptoms such as irritability, excessive sweating, and insomnia.
The menstrual cycle of women is closely related to the secretion of sex hormones. If there is no sexual activity for a long time, it will reduce the secretion of sex hormones in women, which can affect their menstrual period and easily lead to dysmenorrhea.
In addition, it may also lead to abnormal menstrual blood volume, irregular menstruation, prolonged menstruation, and other abnormal situations.
Due to the special location and structural characteristics of the vagina, there are a large number of bacteria present in the vagina. However, the vagina has a certain self-cleaning function and often secretes a type of mucus, which can have a bactericidal effect.
If the vagina is not fully stimulated for a long time without sexual activity, it will reduce the secretion of mucus, thereby reducing its ability to self purify. Bacteria can easily multiply in the vagina, leading to vaginitis and potentially leading to gynecological inflammation such as pelvic inflammatory disease and cervicitis.
