HPV: get the facts!

You can get it from somebody who doesn’t even know they are infected. It’s

incredibly common and nearly all sexually active women get it at some point in

their lives. There is a vaccine for it and routine tests that screen for it. You may

or may not develop symptoms and it is usually treatable. Some types can lead

to bumps while several types can lead to cancer if left untreated. Would you

like to know more? Let’s start the conversation on the Human Papillomavirus.

HPV: get the facts!

What will be your labor and delivery soundtrack?

Deep and soulful torch songs or powerful motivating anthems for the

marathon of labor? What will be your labor and delivery soundtrack? You

might want calming instrumental music to get lost in or maybe party tunes to

celebrate you and the power of the birthing experience. Whatever your musical

taste, just remember that all of your senses become heightened during labor, so

your favorite “jam” today might suddenly become a relentless auditory itch on

your special day, so be sure to load a variety of songs on your iPod. Have fun

creating your Birth Soundtrack and enjoy the ride!

It’s not your mother’s birth control pill anymore.

 

 It’s not your mother’s birth control pill anymore. “The Pill,” as it is affectionately referred to, is no longer used just for contraception. Unwanted facial hair, acne, heavy / painful periods and altering “Aunt Flow’s” monthly visit are just a few of the things that the birth control pill can address. And, if taking a pill every day is not your thing, other preparations are available through your doctor’s office. It’s time to take back your health!
