Potential risks: If it is not cared for correctly and promptly, there is a greater risk of developing conditions that can put the person’s health and quality of life at risk, such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility, liver inflammation, miscarriage or premature birth, and cancer, among others.
