Can cancer treatment cause vaginal tightness?
Good In Bed answeredImmediately following your cancer treatment, you may feel tighter than you ever have before. You aren't imagining things. This is a common side effect of treatment, and radiation therapy to the pelvic region in particular can cause scar tissue to form in your vagina, and can also cause your vagina to narrow. And while this can improve that delicious feeling of friction you experience during the ol' in-and-out, it can also make sex painful. And no one wants to have sex if they're anticipating an ouch feeling instead of an ooh… In fact, this expectation of pain can also adversely affect your libido.

Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answered
Male inattentiveness isn't the only reason why women tend to talk more than men. It's because women crave the chemicals serotonin and oxytocin. It's part of the reason why gossip actually is healthy for your body (though perhaps not for the person you're gossiping about). By the way, during an average day, women speak with about 20,000 words and gestures. Men? About 7,000. Yes, that includes grunts directed at the Knicks.

What sacrifices are made by working women?
Boston Women's Health Book Collective, Administration, answered
Sixty-five percent of working women who are caregivers report having to make workplace adjustments that include having to go in late to work, leave early, take time off, request unpaid leave, shift from a full-time job to a part-time job (which usually means losing benefits), turn down promotions, or quit working.
