Hi! I’m a 15 year old girl and I need help to understand my body. I’m 5″4 and about 130 pounds with quite an athletic/heavy built. I’ve been insecure about my weight for several years since I started ‘getting curves’ as a teenager, and for the last year I’ve been starving myself on and off but only losing a bit of fat and muscle mass. I’ve only now started to try and get healthier, and though calorie calculators say I should be eating around 2200 calories a day to keep my weight and at least 1200 to function, I never really eat more than 1000 a day. The thing is, I never think I have? I’m not a big eater and yet I have a lot of trouble with getting slimmer. Do I need to eat more?
Some remedies, however, can be done. Women with progesterone deficiency should eat more food that contains zinc, selenium, magnesium, and different herbal medicines, take vitamin supplements, especially vitamins B and C and have a lot of rest to be able to deal with factors that cause stress and reduce progesterone levels. Maintaining a proper hygiene in the intimate zone is also important. Menstrual cups will provide leak-free protection so that you could feel confident in any situation. Besides, gynecologists don't recommend using perfumed gels or soaps since they can disrupt your natural vaginal flora. So, you can use a naturally-scented Castile soap to maintain pH balance of your intimate area.
When testosterone levels in a man become low, he may start to experience various unpleasant symptoms, since this hormone is responsible for the maintenance of several functions in his body. Learning what the symptoms are, what causes the condition and how it can be treated helps men identify the signs of low T early on; thus ensuring* their condition can be treated quickly and more successfully, since a late diagnosis might mean the man will need a considerable amount of testosterone therapy to produce effective results when trying to restore his testosterone levels.
