Women’s health overview
The different phases in a woman’s life (e.g. menstrual pains or complaints during menopause), often need special attention and appropriate care. The social environment, society, certain stress factors and environmental effects also play a big role in a woman’s health.
During a woman’s whole life, she is influenced by hormones and subject to certain ups and downs. This process starts already in puberty, and finishes after the menopause. Because of these hormonal variations, women may suffer from being overweight, osteoporosis, heart attack, hair loss, depression, sleeplessness, pigmentation, hot flashes, irritability and many other complaints. All in all, women succumb to circumstances of hormonal imbalance more than men.

Apomeds stocks the following pills in its range of products:
The morning-after pill
Forgot to take the pill? Broken condom? Such accidents can happen anytime and that’s why the morning-after pill was developed. For many women and girls, it is too embarrassing to go to the doctor after such an incidence. The morning-after pill needs to be taken within three days of the unprotected intercourse.
Through the early use of the medication, the settling of fertilized eggs in the uterine lining is avoided and therefore pregnancy is prevented. Apomeds carries two different morning-after pills.
In this area we also offer a brand medication. Bacterial vaginosis, also known as Gardnerella vaginalis or haemophilus vaginalis, happens when the vagina is over-inhabited by anaerobic bacteria or Gardnerella. Then inflammation occurs in the vaginal area, which causes discharge, a fishy odour, burning and itching. Many know this problem under the name vaginal yeast infection. A yeast infection is very common and not a reason to panic.
Which woman doesn’t know it; the unending nuisance of hair-removal. When the enzyme, ornithine decarboxylase, is released excessively, it creates strong hair growth. The reason can be hormonal or genetic. Nowadays, it is not very desirable for women to have a lot of body hair. On the contrary, the trend is for women to be totally hair-free, on the whole body.
Apomeds also has the perfect solution for this kind of distress! Unwanted hair is very disturbing – especially on the face. Vaniqa is the only approved lotion so far, against hirsutism, and can lead to obvious improvement. The active ingredient eflornithine, reduces the effect of the enzyme ornithine decarboxylases, which is found inside the hair follicle and stimulates hair growth. With Vaniqa, the growth process is reduced or completely stopped.
Chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs) are usually caused by intestinal bacteria. Either the pathogens invade the urinary tract system for the first time, or a previous infection wasn’t entirely cured. In over 90% of the cases it is a newly acquired infection, which can happen more than two weeks after a previous inflammation. Because of a shorter urethra, women suffer much more than men from this problem.
UTI’s can happen acutely or they can become chronic. The cause of a chronic urinary tract infection, is a defect in the body’s own protective layer of the bladder wall that the intestinal- bacteria invade. When the GAG’s (glycosaminoglycan) or protective layer is damaged and being attacked, the body’s own protection function becomes disturbed and inflammation occurs as a result.
Apomeds offers an effective antibiotic for the treatment of cystitis, which is obtainable only with a prescription.
