There is a comprehensive study going on about women’s health today that links gum disease and hormonal issues in women. Women experience hormonal changes all throughout their life: at their puberty when they start their menstrual cycle, during their pregnancy and when they menopause. It is almost a common knowledge that women’s hormones fluctuate all the time all throughout their lifetime.
But, what is not common knowledge is that for every hormonal fluctuation, there is the tendency of a woman’s mouth condition to change and this change allows bacteria to grow more. This can result to bacteria entering the blood stream that will likely bring about health issues in women such as fetal death if she is pregnant, bone lose, preterm births among others.
This study, conducted by Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine Associate Clinical Professor Charlene Kreji, was one of 100 plus studies cited on an article about women’s health that connects hormonal changes in women to her oral health.Gum Disease Linked To Hormonal Changes
