No matter how excited a woman is about the prospect of being pregnant, she can experience just as many sexual roadblocks as her male partner. Sex on demand can be tricky for her -- even if she’s the one doing the demanding. For example, it’s easy for women to get in the goal-oriented, baby-making mindset, where sex is simply a means to an ends. That can mean that she may not even be in the mood when she initiates sex, but is guided instead by ovulation. Yet a lack of desire can lead to additional problems, like decreased lubrication and difficulty climaxing. It’s important to devote the same amount of attention to foreplay and arousal when trying to conceive that you normally would.

How are women affected by the pressure to conceive?

How often does a healthy young woman need a check-up?
Howard LeWine, MD, Internal Medicine, answeredDuring your 20s, you should have a routine preventive care visit every two years. There are two main reasons why you need an actual office visit:
- Blood pressure check
- Pelvic exam with a Pap smear
Plus, when you have an office visit every two years, your doctor can review your family medical history, diet, exercise habits and use of tobacco and alcohol.
Doctors often screen for depression during a routine checkup by asking:
- Have you been feeling sad or hopeless?
- Have you noticed a loss of interest or pleasure in doing things you used to enjoy?
You may feel fine. But a routine checkup gives you a chance to ask medical questions not worthy of a separate appointment.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
What are breasts composed of?
HealthyWomen answeredBreasts are glands contained within the front of the chest wall. The average breast weighs between seven and 10 ounces and is primarily composed of 12 to 20 lobes that spread out from the nipple like the spokes in a bicycle tire. These triangular lobes each have one central duct that opens at the nipple, through which milk exits.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
