You Deserve to Sleep!


Category : Womens Issues

Women in America are tired. Between jobs, housework, children, husbands, errands, cooking, we’ve got a lot on our plates (not that we’re complaining, of course). We never seem to get caught up on our rest and sleep because there’s always so much to do.

But what if you get plenty of sleep and you still feel tired? As it turns out, it’s not the amount that affects us so much as the quality. Poor-quality sleep interferes with our energy and keeps it vibrating at a low level, which shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Although we’re desperate to rest and sleep, we never fully turn off. There’s always that to-do list running through our minds, like background music. We’re like computers in sleep mode-not fully awake, but not fully asleep either.

One factor that affects women’s sleep quality is motherhood. Even after our children stop waking at night (even after they move out of the house!), we continue to sleep with one eye open and stir at the slightest sound. We conditioned ourselves when our kids were infants to spring to their aid. Now that we don’t have to spring anymore, we still are in mama-bear mode, mostly because it never occurred to us that we’d have to recondition ourselves all over again, to do the opposite.

But first, how can you improve the overall quality of your sleep? In this wired age, the trick is to completely turn off and let our bodies go into repair and restore mode. In other words, we have to give ourselves permission to let go and fall into deep, restful sleep, instead of our usual light, restless, watchful sleep. Below are some tips to maximize your sleep effectiveness.

Establish a bedtime routine. Go to bed at roughly the same time every night. Your body will respond by getting the message that it’s time to sleep and will fall into a deeper sleep.

Don’t watch any stressful or stimulating TV shows for two hours before bedtime.

Before bed, give yourself some time (even if it’s just 15 minutes) to read, meditate, pray, do yoga or tai chi. Make a rule that during this time, you’re not allowed to think about what you need to do tomorrow, what you left undone today or what you should be doing right now instead of taking care of yourself.

Before your relaxation time, prepare yourself by emptying your mind of all the have-tos and chores. Get a notebook specifically for this purpose. Each night before your quiet time, write down everything that you need to do the next day. This will give your brain permission to let these chores go, because otherwise your brain believes it has to be alert to remember the list.

In a separate section of the notebook, write down everything that’s bothering you. Then let it go. In another section, write down everything that you’re grateful for.

Prenatal Nutrition


Category : Womens Issues

Good nutrition is an essential during pregnancy as your baby’s health is dependent on it. Thus a healthy pregnancy diet is the key to a healthy pregnancy. The food consumed during pregnancy is directly related to the health and growth of baby. This is so because all the nutrients required for baby’s growth is derived from the food supplements taken by the mother. Research has proven that nutrition in early pregnancy has a direct impact on the susceptibility to chronic degenerative disease in later life. The Indian Council of Medical Research advises a prenatal nutrition that aids in contributing to the essential nutrients for you and fetal development.

There is tremendous change in the nutritional needs of the body during pregnancy as a result of change in body and fetus development. In the first three months the main nutrients of importance are folio acid, vitamin B12 and zinc. While during the second and third month the key nutrients are protein, iron, calcium, magnesium, B group vitamins and a fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (D HA).

There is need for an extra 300kcals per day during pregnancy to meet the growing needs of the body and to provide sufficient nutrition for the growing baby. It is not advisable to control calories and carbohydrate. This could be detrimental to the growth of baby. Curbing your diet can also result in low birth weight and babies having health and growth problems.

Protein is an important nutrient contributing to muscle strength, breasts, uterus and bay tissues. It also enhances blood supply. During pregnancy an average of 65 g of protein is needed. Both lower and higher protein levels are detrimental during pregnancy. Food having a good protein composition is egg, pulses, meat products fish and cereals.

Fat requirement in the daily diet during pregnancy is 40 g which is equivalent to 5 teaspoonfuls of oil. One needs 300 mg/day of D HA during pregnancy. Omega-3 fatty acid is an important category of fat during pregnancy contributing to the brain development and vision of the growing baby.

Vitamins and minerals like folio acid is essential to build tissues and for overall development of red blood cells. Green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, bread, beans and nuts are significant sources of folic acid. Vitamin B12 helps in the healthy development of brain and nervous system of the baby. Iron is another essential nutrient which regulates blood flow between the baby and mother.

Calcium is needed for strengthening the bones of the baby. A daily intake of 1000 mg per day during pregnancy should suffice. Rich source of calcium are milk, cottage cheese, cheese, green leafy vegetables and fish.

Fiber and fluids are significant to stay away from common pregnancy problems like constipation and piles. Eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetable, whole meal bread and cereals and brown rice improves your fiber intake. There are situations when the body does not get sufficient nutrition due problems like nausea and vomiting, heart burn, constipation, food aversion and some others. Doctors recommend intake of nutrient supplements to cope up with the lack of them. Thus a balanced pregnancy diet comprising all the important nutrients is essential for a healthy mother and baby.

Dyspareunia Causes and Treatments


Category : Womens Issues

What Is Dyspareunia?

Dyspareunia is a general term for painful sexual intercourse for women. Dyspareunia is not a single condition but a syndrome, that is, a set of symptoms. It’s estimated that 50% of women experience painful intercourse at some time. Dyspareunia is not serious, and a number of treatments are available.

What Are the Symptoms?

Each woman has her own set of symptoms. Pain, of course, is the chief symptom. The pain occurs just before, during or after intercourse. Some women feel the pain on the surface or just inside the vagina (superficial pain). Others feel the pain down inside the pelvis (deep pain). Women have described the pain as cramping, burning and sharp.

When Should a Woman See Her Doctor?

Although widespread, painful intercourse is not normal. The pain usually signals a serious underlying medical or physical problem. A woman should see her doctor when the pain reoccurs and interferes with a normal sex life.

What Causes Dyspareunia?

Sources of superficial pain include:
• Vaginal dryness because of too little foreplay; some medications, such as antidepressants and certain birth control pills; or a drop in estrogen levels after childbirth or menopause
• Vaginismus, an involuntary tightening of the vagina muscles
• Damage or injury to the genital area from an accident, certain surgeries or a congenital (inborn) abnormality
• An infection in the genital area or urinary tract
• A skin irritation in the genital area
• Vulvar vestibulitis, an unexplained stinging or burning around the opening of the vagina

Causes of deep pain include:
• An illness, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, cystitis (inflammation of the bladder) or irritable bowel syndrome
• An infection in the fallopian tubes, uterus, ovaries or cervix
• Radiation treatments or chemotherapy for cancer in the pelvic region
• Certain conditions, such as hemorrhoids, ovarian cysts or prolapsed uterus (when the uterus slides from its normal position into the vaginal canal)
• Adhesions (scar tissue) resulting from surgeries in the pelvic region, uterine fibroids (benign tumors in the uterus) or endometriosis (when cells in the lining of the uterus grow elsewhere in the body)

In some cases, emotional or psychological problems are at the root of the pain. More often, however, they contribute to the underlying medical or physical cause. Mental illness, stress, fear of getting pregnant or not getting pregnant, insecurity over one’s sexual performance and negative attitudes toward sex can add to the pain.

What Are the Treatments for Dyspareunia?

The first step, naturally, is to relieve the pain with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin and ibuprofen. The second step is to attack the underlying cause of the pain with the appropriate medication or therapy, for example:
• Antibiotics or fungicides for infections
• Estrogen replacement therapy for vaginal dryness
• The Wurn technique to break down and remove scar tissue
• Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles
• Sex counseling

Many of these treatments can be carried out at home. But women should always check with their doctor before beginning any medical treatment.

How Can Dyspareunia Be Prevented?

Although it can’t be totally prevented, the risk of suffering dyspareunia can be reduced by:
• Maintaining good hygiene and overall health
• Lubricating the vagina before sexual relations
• Prolonging foreplay for natural lubrication
• Trying different sexual positions
• Changing meds that cause vaginal dryness
• Protecting oneself from sexually transmitted diseases
• Avoiding deep penetration, especially if endometriosis is present
• Communicating openly with one’s sexual partner

Feminine Odor Control


Category : Womens Issues

One thing that can surely destroy a woman’s sense of feeling desirable and sensual, is to have feminine odor. Since this malady plagues so many women, let’s look at some methods of feminine odor control.

If feminine odor already exists, the first thing you want to do is have a gynecological exam to rule out any vaginal infection, as vaginal infections definitely cause odor. If the result of your exam is positive for infection you will be given medicine to kill the unfriendly bacteria or yeast causing it; however, caution must be taken so that the infection does not reoccur. The methods used to prevent re-infection are, for the most part, the same for preventing feminine odor, so let’s look at these now.


The most obvious feminine odor control method is to have proper hygiene. If need be, wash more than once a day but do not use harsh soap. Unscented natural soaps are the best, and certainly never use antibacterial soaps as they are too chemically laden and can very easily irritate the sensitive tissue around and in the vagina.

Soap also disrupts the vaginal pH. When this occurs the healthy vaginal flora cannot survive and hence disruptive organisms take over and cause infection and odor.

Natural Clothing:

Cotton and wool are not only natural fabrics, but they breathe, which means they allow airflow. Synthetic materials such as nylon and polyester do not breathe, and consequentially hold in moisture; and constant moisture breeds bacteria and yeast.

Now, just as when you perspire under your arms and you get an underarm odor, the same happens when you wear nylon panties or pantyhose, or polyester slacks — the vaginal area perspires; it can’t get air because of the suffocating material around it; and it begins to smell. Therefore, always wear cotton panties and try not to wear synthetic fabrics such as pantyhose or polyester slacks.

Air It Out:

There was a time in our history when women didn’t wear panties at all. I know going without panties might be a shock to some ladies, but unless you feel it is necessary, at least don’t wear panties to bed; let it air out.

Also consider thigh-high nylons instead of pantyhose.

Ditch the Douche:

Many women douche for the simple reason that they want to feel clean, especially after their period or after intercourse. Some women also douche if they notice a discharge, though some discharge is normal.

The trouble with douching, however, is that it can cause the very feminine odor that women are trying to eliminate. Douching is actually counter-productive and is certainly not a feminine odor control method.

When using a commercial douche, the chemicals in the product badly disrupt the vaginal pH. Friendly vaginal flora die because of this and then harmful bacteria take over, which again causes feminine odor.

Another issue with douching is that the force of the douching fluid can push existing bad bacteria up through the cervix, causing pelvic inflammatory disease; and pelvic inflammatory disease also emits odor.

In summation, the best means of feminine odor control is to wash regularly with a gentle, unscented soap; wear cotton panties and avoid synthetic fabrics in that area; sleep without panties and allow the vagina to air out; and do not use commercial douches.

Endometriosis and Infertility


Category : Womens Issues

Endometriosis is a condition in which cells from tissue inside the uterus (womb) grow in places outside the uterus. These cells settle on or in the fallopian tubes or ovaries, and sometimes on or in other organs in the pelvic area, including the abdomen and bladder. The cells clump up, become inflamed and eventually develop into adhesions (scars), which cause pain. In some cases, the condition leads to infertility, known as endometriosis infertility.

The cause of endometriosis is not yet known. Some women may be born with this abnormality. Some women may be born with a tendency to get endometriosis during their reproductive years. Medical researchers have suggested that during menstruation, menstrual fluid backs up through the fallopian tubes into the abdomen where cells from the fluid become embedded and begin to grow. There are a number of other theories for its prevalence.

Studies have shown that between 5% and 10% of all women have endometriosis, but most of these women are fertile. Some 30% to 40% of women with endometriosis are infertile. In most cases, endometriosis infertility is temporary. Women with endometriosis do have children. They just have more difficulty getting pregnant than other women have.

In most cases, it’s difficult to pinpoint why a woman with endometriosis has trouble getting pregnant. Some researchers think that infertility and delayed pregnancy might make a woman susceptible to developing endometriosis, rather than endometriosis causing infertility. Some researchers believe there are multiple causes of endometriosis infertility and that each woman who suffers this disorder has her own set of contributing factors.

Studies have shown that the likelihood of a woman suffering endometriosis infertility is directly related to the severity of her condition. Most cases of endometriosis are mild, with little or no pain. Nevertheless, woman with mild endometriosis take longer to get pregnant than women in general do. Women with moderate to severe endometriosis have even more difficulty getting pregnant than women with mild endometriosis have.

If severe enough, endometriosis can damage one or more of the woman’s reproductive organs. As the condition worsens, the adhesions formed from the clumps of cells grow thicker and larger in or around the reproductive organs. In general, adhesions that stick to or push against a reproductive organ deform the structure of that organ and impact its normal function. This contact, medical researchers believe, contributes to endometriosis infertility.

For example, adhesions in the fallopian tubes can nudge the tubes out of their normal position, thus preventing the egg from the ovary from entering the tube. Or the adhesions might block the inside of the tubes, keeping the egg from traveling to the womb. Thick adhesions on or in the ovaries can form painful cysts and sometimes prevent the egg from escaping. They can also reduce the number of eggs in the ovaries and damage remaining eggs. And inflammation in the pelvis caused by adhesions can trigger the production of certain cells that attack and shorten the life spam of the sperm.

Common treatments for endometriosis infertility include drugs to control pain and to stop the endometriosis from getting worse and surgery to remove the adhesions. But surgery often creates its own adhesions. The Wurn technique, a hands-on procedure used by physical therapists, has proven effective in breaking down and eliminating adhesions and, in many cases, restoring fertility without drugs or surgery.

Does Massaging Your Breasts Cause Them To Grow?


Category : Womens Issues

If you are wondering how to increase breast size you could be wondering if it is possible for you to massage your breasts to make them bigger. Natural breast augmentation is something that many women have allowed to slip through their fingers. The main reason that this has happened is because surgical options seem to offer results so much quicker. In this article we are going to talk more about breast massage. We will talk about how this technique can help you grow your breasts.

Breast massage has become pretty popular these days for many different reasons. Getting your breasts massaged or massaging your own breasts is very relaxing. Besides for that it helps to release the toxins in your breasts. Whenever you massage something else happens besides for these things however.

Many times the blood flow in the breasts is not flowing correctly. As you massage your breasts the blood flow will pick up. This will allow all of the vital nutrients to get to your breasts and help them grow healthier and be more attractive. Whenever you massage your breasts you will be promoting the production of the breast growing prolactin too.

This technique has been used by women for many years but sadly it has not been as popular and well known as it should be because of all of the publicity that plastic surgeons and other individuals that work in the cosmetic industry have given to other methods that are not natural and are much more expensive.

Whenever you use massage to make your breasts bigger you will be able to naturally grow breasts that are all your own instead of having to have foreign substances in your body. You will be able to keep yourself healthier and you also will be able to make your breasts bigger without looking fake.

Massaging your breasts can be done in a few different ways. The only “wrong” way that you can do this is by massaging too hard and actually damaging your breast tissue. Breasts are very tender and you need to make sure that you treat them with care.

The best way to do the massage is when you are lying on your back. Make sure that you are in a comfortable place where you can relax. Then you should put one arm over your head and allow the other hand to massage your breasts. Do this in small circular motions. You want to be deliberate but you do not want to hurt yourself.

You can do this about fifteen to thirty minutes per day. This will not cause you to see a very large increase but you will notice that things are different. If you want more serious results there are other natural methods that will allow you to get results quicker. This is a great way to start out however. Make sure that you remember to be gentle whenever you massage your breasts or you could do more harm than good.

Exploring Home Remedies For Bacterial Vaginosis


Category : Womens Issues

If you have struggled with bacterial vaginosis, you may have found that antibiotic treatments aren’t very effective. Not only that, but they can create unwanted side effects and complications. So, you may have decided that finding a home cure for bacterial vaginosis is a better idea.

Luckily, there are no shortage of cures and treatments for BV that you can try right in your own home. However, it’s important to understand what it is that you want to accomplish. If you don’t know how BV works, you can’t expect to have any luck with treating it naturally at home.

Your Vagina’s pH Balance:

As a general rule, your vagina should have a slightly acidic pH balance and it should be full of healthy bacteria, such as lactobacillus. Lactobacillus create hydrogen peroxide and lactic acid, which help to protect your vagina from infections. When that balance is upset and your vagina becomes less acidic, bad bacteria can invade, take root and begin to grow and multiply.

The thing that makes antibiotics particularly bad in terms of treating that is the fact that they will kill all bacteria that are present, including the lactobacillus. So, it’s much better to find ways to fend off BV without destroying all of your vagina’s natural defenses.

Two douching options:

One home cure is to simply use a hydrogen peroxide douche. The hydrogen peroxide will keep bad bacteria from attaching to your vaginal walls. Therefore, they may get in, but they aren’t likely to take up residence permanently.
The Mexican pharmacy
They other douching option that is quite popular is to raise the acidity of your vagina just a bit with an apple cider vinegar douche. The raised acidity level will swing the pH balance in such a way that bad bacteria cannot survive in your vagina.

Applying Yogurt:

Another popular home cure for BV is applying yogurt directly to the inside of your vagina. That can be done with a sterilized spoon, another form of applicator or a tampon. However, the process can be a little messy. So, you should be prepared to stay home and stay relatively still for about an hour while you allow the yogurt to soak in.

Singulair Mexico
An even easier way to treat BV is to take a supplement that contains the right mix of vitamins, herbs and minerals to treat BV and all of its symptoms. Some of those symptoms include inflammation, itchiness, cramps, bloating and bleeding. Here are some of the best components to look for in a BV supplement pill:
Folic Acid
B Vitamins
Wild Yam
Black Cohosh
White Willow Bark
Vitamin E

There are also several other vitamins, minerals and herbs that can help you to keep BV at bay.

Be Careful Of What You Eat:

Finally, a great home cure for bacterial vaginosis is to simply be careful of what you eat. Bad bacteria tend to like to feed on sugar, for example. On the other hand, eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins will give your entire body, including the good bacteria in your vagina, more energy and more of a chance to fight off infections. So, carefully consider that the next time you sit down to have a meal or snack.

Thermography Is Not a Replacement for Mammography


Category : Womens Issues

Many have struggled with this subject and it appears to be very common to hear the same questions over and over again: “Is thermography better than mammography?”, “Does it replace mammography?”, “If I have a thermogram do I need a mammogram?” First, let’s look at the difference between the two imaging procedures. Thermography measures heat with the use of infrared imaging. Yes, it is safe, there is no radiation and there is no contact or compression. Mammography is an x-ray and provides us with structural imaging or internal anatomy while thermography measures heat emissions and provides information regarding biological activity of the breast tissue. Infrared imaging (thermography) is a functional test, while mammography is a structural test. As a functional test, thermography is great at detecting abnormalities that other screening methods cannot see; these would include vascular activity and changes. While increased vascular activity identified by thermography may be an indication of breast cancer it could also be caused by fibrocystic findings, infection (mastitis or breast abscess), injury or trauma and even hormonal influence. Further, since functional changes precede structural changes thermography can provide us with valuable information in the early indication of breast disease and even cancer. Having the early warning signs enables doctors to monitor women more closely and put preventive measures in place to help reduce certain risk factors. Now, the limitations of thermography. Thermography cannot and does not diagnose breast cancer. However, other structural examinations also have their limitations and it is only by performing a biopsy that a final diagnosis can be rendered. Thermography does not provide information on the exact anatomic position or define a specific area that needs to be biopsied. It has to be combined with other structural examinations, i.e. mammography, ultrasound or MRI. As a functional test thermography serves as a risk marker that complements rather than replaces mammography.


Younger women as a group account for 18% of diagnosed breast cancers. Breast cancer in younger women is usually more aggressive and more likely to metastasize. Thermography is an effective and safe breast assessment for young women.


Women with fibrocystic breasts with high density breast tissue are harder to screen for breast cancer. Early cancers can mask as fibrocystic findings and are more difficult to identify with conventional screening procedures like mammography. Approximately 40% of women with fibrocystic findings and a persistent high risk thermography rating develop breast cancer within 5 years. However the same group with low risk thermography rating has less than 3% likelihood of developing breast cancer.


The result of Women’s Health Initiative in 2002 clearly showed the associated higher incidence of breast cancer with synthetic HRT. However, in my experience even women that are on a bio-identical (BHRT) hormone replacement have on occasion shown developing higher risk for breast cancer when monitored with thermography. Thermography can help monitor the effects of hormone treatment to see the effectiveness or early warning signs of something that becomes problematic over time. In conclusion, thermography is not a competitor or a replacement for mammography. A low risk thermography rating does not mean that cancer is not present; it simply suggests that there is a statistically low probability. Yet, there are always exceptions. Same is true when a high risk rating is established, this does not indicate the presence of cancer – it only suggests a higher level of risk and will require additional examination and closer monitoring. The most important point is that when combined with other structural or anatomical tests thermography may contribute to the best evaluation of breast health.

Women and Hair Loss


Category : Womens Issues

While supermodel Alec Wek may have made a whole high-fashion career out of her unique look, long legs and bald head, and Samantha Jones on Sex and the City, pulled off her wig in a statement of women’s solidarity, after being treated with chemotherapy, most women cannot pull off that ‘Mr. Clean’ look and do not want to.

A clean shaven head may be sexy on a man – think Michael Jordan or the original bald celebrity – Yul Brynner. But, a bald woman? Mrs. Clean? Think again.

Hair loss in women is a not uncommon problem, affecting approximately 20% of the population, and one that is not as much discussed as hair loss in men.

Women lose hair for various reasons including: heredity, hypothyroidism, hormone fluctuations, illness, or like Samantha Jones, chemotherapy. Women’s hair loss occurs all-over the scalp and may not be as obvious as hair loss in men.

How do you know if you’re experiencing hair loss?

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, most people lose anywhere from 50 – 100 strands of hair each day. When is it extreme and a cause for concern?

One way to tell is if there is there an unusually large amount of hair on your pillow when you wake up in the morning. Or, excessive hair in your brush when you brush your hair. Has your scalp become more visible through your hair? Does your part appear to be wider than before?

These are all visual cues that you may be losing your hair in excess.

According to the International Society Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), losing hair for women may be more psychologically damaging than for a man.

“Women, more than men, have a significant psychological investment in their appearance, and are likely to react more negatively to events such as hair loss….”

Nigel Hunt and Sue McHale writing in the 2005 British Medical Journal observed, “Femininity, sexuality, attractiveness, and personality are symbolically linked to a woman’s hair, more so than for a man. Hair loss can therefore seriously affect self- esteem and body image. “

After all, a woman’s hair is her crowning glory.

If you are concerned about excessive hair loss, it may be time to consult a dermatologist and undergo testing to determine whether you have an underlying medical condition.

If so, you need to be treated. Understand your treatment options and choose the best protocol for your condition.

Realize that often hair loss is a temporary condition and will grow back, once the fundamental medical condition has been treated.

If no underlying medical condition is found, a woman may want to explore both options for surgical remedies such as a hair transplant and non-surgical remedies such as wigs, hair weaves, extensions or hair pieces.

Minoxidil can be used as part of a plan of action to prevent additional hair loss. Unlike Propecia, it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in women.

If surgery is chosen, according to the ISHRS, the combination of surgical hair restoration and medical treatments provides the most satisfying result.

Discuss and create a plan with your physician for long-term cosmetic enhancement. Ask, what are the realistic expectations for both short-term and long-term outcomes of hair transplantation?

Be cognizant of the fact that if you are experiencing progressive hair loss, one procedure may not be the be-all-and-end-all.

If you have a family history of hair loss, this may indicate what is to come and should be taken into consideration when considering a hair transplant or other surgical options.
