The GOQii Women‘s Health Survey 22-23 has indicated that 21.7% of women agreed that their advanced age was a factor contributing to infertility issues. GOQii conducted a yearlong study on women’s health among 3000 women to understand the health issues that continue to exist and remain a cause for concern today.
The GOQii Women's Health Survey 22-23 titled, 'Live Well and Stay Healthy: Lifestyle is a Powerful Medicine', indicates that 51% of women have ongoing health issues. The GOQii Women's Health Survey 22-23 indicates that while difficulties with menstruation, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hypothyroidism, UTI and fibroids are prevalent despite a greater focus on women's health, infertility due to age-related issues has been increasing among Indian women too.
The survey observed that 21.7% of women agreed that their advanced age was indeed a factor for infertility issues. In India, the childbearing age of women has been steadily increasing over the past decade.
This can be clearly attributed to factors such as the increasing number of women in the workforce, rising levels of education, improved access to contraception and changing social norms. With the rising age of childbearing, infertility has become an increasingly common problem in India. More and more women are waiting until they are older to conceive. As per the survey, 12.5% are currently undergoing fertility treatments.
New issues such as endometriosis have also surfaced. Endometriosis is a painful and debilitating disease that affects 1 in 10 women of reproductive age in India and is increasing in prevalence. As per the survey, 57.1% of women have been suffering from endometriosis for anywhere from 1 to 5 years.
Speaking about the study, Vishal Gondal, Founder & CEO at GOQii said, “The demands of everyday life, such as work, family, and home commitments, can cause women to forget to prioritize their health. This can be detrimental to a woman's overall effectiveness in her roles in life, as good health is essential to her success. It is important for women to take the necessary steps to ensure that they are looking after themselves and staying healthy”.
Rajashree Menon, business head - healthcare at GOQii says “As someone who is looking at Women’s health conditions and FemTech solutions with keenness, I've realized that women in India often internalize conditions like dysmenorrhea, menopause, infertility, postpartum depression, hypothyroidism et al as challenges that are not serious enough and have to be dealt with on their own. Lack of social support and environmental prejudices also contribute to this. The survey has thrown up major insights into the prevalence of these conditions; their under-diagnosis and delays in seeking treatment amongst others. It is time we break the stigma around these conditions and encourage women to seek professional help. At GOQii, we are empowering women by generating awareness, providing personalized unbiased advice, and encouraging them to use healthy lifestyle as medicine along with doctors' advice to help them overcome these challenges."
The GOQii Women‘s Health Survey 22-23 indicates that 16.5% of women have menstrual issues such as irregular periods which can be managed by lifestyle modification.  It is observed from the polls that 21.4% of women have their period lasting for over 5 days, 46.4% of women have periods lasting for 5 days and about 32.1% have their periods for 3 days. The survey’s mood analysis shows that 17.5% of women are stressed and 28.3% of women feel tired during their periods.
The survey also indicates that almost 41.7% of women have PCOS for over 5 years and another equal percentage of women have been diagnosed with PCOS in the last one year. 63.3% of women suffer irregular periods or infrequent menstrual cycles due to PCOS. On the downside, 41.7% of women who polled were not aware that lifestyle modifications can help manage PCOS.
The GOQii Women’s Health Survey 22-23 also included lifestyle disorders like diabetes and hypothyroidism. Women are more likely to suffer from hypothyroidism than men, and the symptoms can be severe. The survey says 9.4% of women suffer from Hypothyroidism. Treatment often includes medication & lifestyle changes. 25% of women who polled said they were on medications. Proper nutrition and exercise can help to reduce symptoms and manage the condition.
Diabetes can have a significant impact on your daily life. It can affect your energy levels and ability to complete everyday tasks. People with diabetes may need to monitor and manage their blood sugar levels throughout the day, making it more difficult to manage a daily schedule. According to the survey, 42.9% of the women said they have had diabetes for less than a year, 28.6% of women have been suffering from diabetes for anywhere between 1-5 years and 14.3% have been suffering for over 10 years.
