Common Questions and Answers about Women's health magazine history


410281 tn?1254232664 I had a really good friend tell me once that "you have to be your own health advocate." I think of that everytime I procrastinate making a doctors appointment because I'm sure that I can't handle being told "stress can do strange things to your body..." or "if the chemicals aren't balanced..." or "suck it up!" again. Thus the question: How are you your own health advocate? How do you get through "limbo land" without snapping?

Avatar f tn It would have been nice to have had a spokesperson and/or medical doctor discuss new technologies available for diagnosing (OvaSure test) and to urge women to be advocates for their own health. Otherwise, they did a good job presenting the faces of cancer and I hope they raised a lot of funds.
Avatar n tn I'm so stresses out, and I'm 21 years old, my first child died and I'm worried sick the second child will be born premature because it seems like the people I'm around(baby's dad, and my mother) like to stress me out. I can't get stressed because I have a history of preeclampsia and I don't want that to come back. Can someone please give me some advice?
Avatar m tn His accomplice has never been identified. Following the Birmingham incident, Markley entered the Women's Community Health Center in Huntsville Alabama, assaulting at least three clinic workers. One of the workers, Kathryn Wood received back injuries and a broken neck vertebrae. Markley was convicted of first-degree criminal mischief and three counts of third-degree assault and harassment in the Huntsville attack.
931415 tn?1244681111 Oprah Winfrey has been the host of the highest rated syndicated talk show in television history, her self-named The Oprah Winfrey Show. The show has been running for nearly 23 years, with over 3,000 episodes. Winfrey is so famous that she is one of those rare celebrities who is known instantly by just her first name. Say “Oprah,” and virtually everyone will know to whom you’re referring, and her show is often colloquially known as simply Oprah.
Avatar n tn It all seems to be related to my cyle, but I don't understand the connection if there really is one. In terms of health history I am in generally good health, my cholestoral is in normal range and the only time I have ever been hospitalized if for the removal of my thyroid (because of a goiter)3 years ago. The only medication I take is synthyroid.
Avatar n tn Why can you pump at work??? I know in our State it's the law they have to provide you with a private place to pump your milk at. You might want to check the laws in your state, if it's the workplace giving you the problem.
Avatar n tn I know it's hard to get a doctor's appointment soon (at least it is in our area) but you could try going to a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant who specializes in women's care and get in faster. They could order a mammogram and refer you to a breast specialist. Waiting is soooooo hard. Just remember that manhy lumps, even painful ones, turn out benign.
Avatar f tn I unfortunately had to stop because I started developing cysts that could be estrogen driven, history of early stage OvCa, we feel that HRT is not worth the risk for me. I think that you need to give yourself a bit of time....you have a lot going on physically and emotionally, all of which could have an effect on your libido.

Avatar n tn OMG!! 46, will be 47 in June. Can't even tell you how everything seems to be failing, wrinkling, etc. & yes, it seems like it happened overnight. Perimenopausal as well. Had complete check up recently & no major health issues. However, my gyno has me hrt's(which I REALLY want to get off of). Added into the mix of all the skin issues mentioned, I am losing my hair like CRAZY. Anyone else having hair loss issues?
Avatar n tn None of the Men's Health Manual, nor anyone at Advanced Health as any affiliation with Men's Health Magazine..
Avatar n tn 1. The health (standard skin health). 2. The function (urinoir dispenser, reproductive, pleasure). 3. The maintenance (standard health management according to the area's condition). 4. The aplication (serving the only husband is the safest to avoid STD, HIV, AIDS, & damage due to extreme use). Every nature creation, including in genetic factors, must have special aim. Nothing is 100% similar.
Avatar n tn The antiobiotics only help for about 2 months then back to the same stuff So if you have a history of diabetes mellitus; liver disease; history of stroke; history of cancer; or bed sores your more likely for the bacteria Strep B to show itself because those things mainly effect immune system. Basically all you can do is manage life and try to treat the symptoms but because its a bacteria theres not much you can do :/ it really *****.

Avatar n tn possible diagnosis were extreme dry skin, excema, psoroasis and because of my sexual history of only 2 monogamous partners they though "no way it could be an std" well thank god one of my nurse practitioners said a rash should not last almost 2 years, itching on and off...........and gave me a BLOOD test for herpes just in the off chance it could be that. And guess what, IT WAS!
Avatar n tn I'm in a similar situation. I'm 30, my boyfriend is 28. I've had health problems. He says the health problems don't change his view of me. Maybe this is bunk. If marriage didn't exist, my relationship would be perfect. No two people more right for each other. Yadda yadda. I'm not going to get into the details. What makes me angry about this is how many of you women I see being exceptionally cool about the whole deal. You know what you want -- committment. You want long term stability.
Avatar f tn My husband thinks if it bothers me so much I shyould have it removed. I am scared and want to know what the health risks are. Does anyone else have this problem? Shat should I do about it?
Avatar n tn any instructions for follow-up? did you get any meds? Seriously think about going to a naturopath for extra health support, get someone to call and drive you there. Also, go see your medical doctor if you feel that you have worsened. I got the flu shots on Nov 5th and there have been days that I felt that I went "backwards" and then I would improve again. Look at our original forum (Tingling after Swine Flu Vaccine) where there are over 150 comments for more feedback and suggestions.
Avatar n tn I had mine Merina put in one week ago. I've had 2 kids but because of some scar tissue my health care provider said it was a very difficult insertion. If I do not take 800 mg of iburprofin every 6 to 8 hours the pain is very bad. Its not getting any better. Also having the back pain and the pain is worse on the right side. I agree with jrd325 - feels more like contractions than menstral cramps. At 40 my options for birth control are getting fewer, I sure hope these cramps go away.
Avatar n tn There is a good article in Women's Health this month in regards to Chronic pain and the fact that sometimes the nerve does not "shut off" long after the injury has healed. At least this would account for the fact that nothing shows on MRI's, X-Rays, CAT scans, Bone Scans etc., etc.. The hope was that the nerve blocks that I had would work "like shutting down and restarting your computer". One worked for 4 days, the next one 2 (they won't repeat them).
Avatar n tn Hello All, This is my first time being on this site and it has been truly insightful so far. I am a 33 year old female that found a lump in my breast. After the mammogram (VERY painful) and ultrasound, a 1 cm lump was indicated. The ultrasound findings indicate "an area of palpable abnormality 4 cm from the nipple. This is a suggestion there is some enhancement posteriorly suggesting this may represent a complex cyst.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn I have been on Lexapro on and off for 2 years now. I had to quit taking it for 3 months because i ran out of health insurance. I also am on weight watchers and had lost 50 pounds a few years ago. I was looking back on my weight loss chart and saw that within 3 weeks of starting lexapro each time, I had a significant weight gain. I went from 175 to 185 the first time and then continued to gain despite following the program and exercising.
