What is for
- What are the causes of ageing?
- Aging can be defined as the sum of all the mechanisms that alter the functions of a living thing, prevents it from maintaining physiological balance and eventually leads to the death of said organism. In the human body and most other living things, the process is complex, gradual and depends on many biological factors.
- The main causes of aging are -
The genome is the sum of the genetic information of a person or species. Recent studies have shown that the DNA repair system could play a part in the aging process.
Chromosomes are located in the nucleus of the cell, and carry genetic material. They have at their ends an area called telomere which contains no genetic information. Studies have shown that the length of the telomeres slowly reduced with age and that it was linked to a higher risk of age-related diseases like pulmonary fibrosis, degenerative diseases.
- Unfolded protein response
Proteins mostly work due to their shape which allows them to be identified and to perform their function.
Protein folding allows them to take up their effective shape.
Studies have shown that many age-related diseases, especially neuro-degenerative diseases are due to the buildup of unfolded proteins inside the cell, causing it to malfunction.
Cellular senescence happens when the cell ages and its function decreases. It stops dividing and changes activity.
- Why is sexual health important?
- Sexual health refers to the many factors that impact sexual function and reproduction. These include a variety of physical, mental, and emotional factors. Disorders that affect any of these factors can impact a person’s physical and emotional health, as well as his or her relationships and self-image.

- Increased susceptibility to infection
- Greater risk of heat stroke or hypothermia
- Slight decrease in height as the bones of our spines get thinner and lose some height
- Bones break more easily
- Joint changes, ranging from minor stiffness to severe arthritis
- Stooped posture
- Slowed and limited movement
- Decrease in overall energy
- Urinary incontinence
- Slight slowing of thought, memory, and thinking (however, delirium, dementia, and severe memory loss are NOT a normal part of aging)
- Reduced reflexes and coordination and difficulty with balance
- Decrease in visual acuity
- Diminished peripheral vision
- Some degree of hearing loss
- Wrinkling and sagging skin
- Whitening or graying of hair
Types & Condition
If an individual experiences the above signs and symptoms
- Reproductive system disorders
- Reproductive system disease, any of the diseases and disorders that affect the human reproductive system.
- They include abnormal hormone production by the ovaries or the testes or by other endocrine glands, such as the pituitary, thyroid, or adrenals. Such diseases can also be caused by genetic or congenital abnormalities, infections, tumours, or disorders of unknown cause.
- According to WHO, Infertility is a disease of the male or female reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.
- Infertility affects millions of people of reproductive age worldwide – and has an impact on their families and communities. Estimates suggest that between 48 million couples and 186 million individuals live with infertility globally.
- Urinary system problems
- A urinary tract infection, commonly known as UTI is one of the most common urinary problems and is an infection that occurs in the urinary tract.
- This infection is most often caused by microbes such as fungi, bacteria, and virus and involves the kidneys, ureters, urethra or bladder.
- This condition can be very painful, and the consequences can get critical if the infection spreads to the kidneys.
- Sexually transmitted diseases
- Sextually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)are generally acquired by sexual contact.
- An STD may also be called a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or venereal disease (VD).
- The organisms (bacteria, viruses or parasites) that cause sexually transmitted diseases may pass from person to person in blood, semen, or vaginal and other bodily fluids.
- Sometimes these infections can be transmitted nonsexually, such as from mother to infant during pregnancy or childbirth, or through blood transfusions or shared needles.
- Birth control
- Birth control is any method used to prevent pregnancy.
- There are many different methods of birth control including condoms, IUDs, birth control pills, the rhythm method, vasectomy, and tubal ligation.
