Women’s Health is the most delicate issue among the global health care sector. Women's health is determined by not just by the biological aspect but also by conditions such as Destitution, Employment, and personal responsibilities. The reproductive and sexual health is the major influencing condition on the mental and physical well-being of many women. Women’s health in most countries is only related to pregnancy, childbirth and the post-maternity issues, whereas the mental and physical wellbeing are treated secondary. Several other conditions like cardiovascular disease, Cancer, Human papilloma virus (HPV), Depression, Dementia, and Osteoporosis etc. are given minimal importance. Several such issues have been discussed through Volume 5 Issue 6 of the Journal of Women’s Health Care. The authors mainly focused upon issues like Urinary incontinence, Family planning, Pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder, and Sex during pregnancy, Endoscopy in pregnancy, Tuberculosis peritonitis and Dry eye in women.
Urinary Incontinence (UI) means involuntary leakage of urine, which is due to lack of control over urinary sphincter. It is a much more common problem in women and seems to vary widely. Dhillon et al.  provided significant information about the UI, its prevalence, risk factors and quality of life among Malaysian women. To access this, they selected Scopus and Medline search, but the information collected is incomplete and inconclusive. Thus, there is a need for bigger national population based study by employing a validated standardized symptom-based questionnaire in various local languages with sufficient details that allow for grading of UI severity and to estimate accurately the prevalence of UI.
The prevention of unintended and closely spaced pregnancies, in first 12 months following childbirth is termed as postpartum family planning. The first year after delivery is very critical period for the uptake of contraceptives to prevent unintended pregnancy.

Nigussie et al. , tried to assess postpartum contraceptive utilization in Kebribeyah town, Somali region, Eastern Ethiopia. The results of this study reported low postpartum family planning utilization by the women during postpartum period. Thus, there is a need for Kebribeyah woreda health office to enhance awareness in people to improve the uptake of postpartum contraceptive in order to reduce maternal and new born mortality and morbidity.
Premenstrual dysphoric disorder is a condition in which a women suffers from severe depression symptoms, tension before menstruation, irritability etc. Agustin et al. , focused on the factors those have impact on the pathology on premenstrual Dysphoric disorders and also tried to explore the consequences of the disorders.

The intercourse during pregnancy has many advantages such as good outcome of the pregnancy and child birth, harmony in the couple etc. Prohibition of intercourse during pregnancy cause complications such as, still child birth or miscarriage, so it is necessary for repeated sexual intercourse during first 7 months of the pregnancy.

To study this they conducted a cross-sectional survey in 10 different health centers in Ouagadougou city. This survey reported different sexual interest during pregnancy. Thus, health providers must ensure a good counseling about intercourse during the antenatal cares.
Carbohydrate antigen125 (CA125) is often measured as an indicator of ovarian malignancy. However, CA 125 is often elevated in variety of other non-ovarian conditions such as, pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis etc. The popularity of CA125 in the diagnosis of ovarian cancer is declined because CA 125 was not elevated in most primary ovarian mucinous neoplasms. Khan et al. , tried to evaluate the utility of CA 125 in the diagnosis of intestinal tuberculosis peritonitis in female patients. For this they conducted observational study and this study recorded high CA125 in patients with tuberculosis. Thus, CA 125 can be used as an effective marker for diagnosis of the severity of peritoneal inflammation.
