Cervical cancer

Regular pap tests are an integral part of women's health

The best medicine is preventative medicine. That's why regular visits to your ob-gyn include Pap tests, also known as Pap smears, a routine gynecological exam that screens for cervical cancer. The statistics don't lie: around 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States each year. It behooves any woman to maintain a regular schedule of testing to ensure she stays ahead of any potential irregularities. 

woman movement

If you are feeling stuck with chronic fatigue, it could be time to move more

Chronic fatigue should be discussed with a health professional to determine if something such as a hormone imbalance, poor diet, excess stress, or something more serious is contributing to your condition. But it should be said: most women can benefit from moving more. Women make up more than 50% of the population in the United States, a country with people that, some studies suggest, are sedentary for up to 15 hours out of every 24 hour cycle. You may have heard that sitting is the new smoking, another malefactor that keeps energy low. Let's take a look at how movement keeps us energized.

Getting to the Bottom of the Connection Between: Hormonal Birth Control and Depression

Birth control pills help women minimize their chance of getting pregnant by adding in extra doses of estrogen and progesterone to prevent the ovaries from releasing eggs. Anything in life that affects your natural balance of hormones is going to cause noticeable differences both physically and psychologically. So it is important to know what you are going to be putting your body through when you make this choice. Read more for the connection between hormonal birth control and depression.

menorrhagia

Heavy menstrual bleeding affects more than 10 million women per year in the US alone

Known as menorrhagia, the telltale symptom is heavy bleeding that lasts for more than seven days. Bleeding to this degree lowers quality of life and leads to anemia, a common blood disorder that sabotages energy levels. Signs of menorrhagia include:

  • Women who have to change their tampon or pad more frequently than every two hours
  • Menstrual periods that last for longer than 7 days
  • Menstrual flow with blood clots the size of a quarter
  • Associated pain in the lower abdomen
  • Fatigue and shortness of breath

If you exhibit any of the above symptoms, it is worth your time to consult with a doctor to find out if your menorrhagia is caused by a deeper condition, the most common of which include: 

  • Hormone-related abnormalities
  • Uterine related problems including tumors in the cervix, cancer of the cervix or uterus or problems stemming from pregnancy. 
  • Bleeding-related conditions such as platelet function disorder
  • Liver disease
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Other cancer

yeast infections Passaic

Vaginal yeast infections affect up to 75% of women at some point in their life!

To say they are common is an understatement, but that doesn't make them any less uncomfortable. Most often caused by an overgrowth of the fungal organism Candida albicans, symptoms include: 

  • Irritation, itching, inflammation
  • Discharge 
  • Pain during urination or intercourse

Furthermore, though it is not considered and STD, yeast infections can be transmitted during sex. Treatment usually involves topical creams and oral antifungal medications, and many women choose to treat their yeast infection with home remedies, of which there are myriad schools of thought regarding the treatment of yeast infections. But it must be said, the best way to mitigate the symptoms of a yeast infection is to avoid them altogether!
