During National Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, let’s discuss this disease that affects one in 78 women. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, so let’s get real about this deadly gynecological cancer. Ovarian cancer can be catastrophic because it isn’t easily detected or diagnosed. Therefore, by the time it’s diagnosed, the cancer can be in advanced stages. According to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and the American Cancer Society: One in 78 women develop ovarian cancer. Pap Smear tests do not detect ovarian cancer. The five-year survival rate for early stage ovarian cancer is more than 90 percent. Ovarian cancer can be misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome, urinary tract infection, gastritis and even stress or depression. In fact, four in five women are misdiagnosed. But, frustratingly, early diagnosis is critical for the survival of the patient. And, while Pap Smear tests do not test for ovarian cancer, doctors can ask for blood tests and transvaginal ultrasounds for a clear diagnosis. Women who know they have a family history of ovarian cancer are strongly encouraged to speak with their doctors about their choices in early discovery. Hereditary cancer genetic testing is an excellent option, which the doctors at the Advanced Women’s Healthcare […]
Find out if an intrauterine device is your best choice for birth-control. When it comes to birth control, there are many choices available, and your healthcare provider will help you make the best selection based on your health, lifestyle, family goals and more. Between condoms, pills, patches, rings and shots, the choices might seem overwhelming. But your healthcare provider will help talk you through them. Let’s discuss one popular birth-control device that the doctors at Advanced Women’s Healthcare administer regularly: the intrauterine device. What is an IUD? An intrauterine device, or IUD, is contraceptive choice consisting of a small, flexible device inserted into the uterus. IUDs and look like a “T” and are made of copper or plastic. The two types of IUDs are hormonal and copper. A hormonal IUD prevents pregnancy by preventing the ovaries from releasing eggs. It also inhibits sperm’s ability to swim toward an egg. Hormonal IUD brands include Mirena, Skyla, Liletta and Kyleena. A copper IUD prevents pregnancy by releasing copper ions into the cervix, causing a hostile environment for sperm. The copper ions also encourage the cervix to produce a thick mucus that sperm can’t navigate. ParaGard is the most-popular copper IUD choice. Healthcare […]
What you didn’t know about breastfeeding. Breastfeeding can be an appealing choice for mothers worldwide, and it’s a wonderful way for babies to get ideal nutrition, not to mention colostrum to help kickstart a baby’s digestive system.
