There are multiple pieces to the puzzle of a woman's health. The more pieces of the puzzles you put in, the more complete and healthy an outcome you will find. Eating the right foods for you (vegetables, fruits, good protein and fats, and little starches and sugars), exercising regularly (weight training, stretching and cardio almost daily), sleeping (a minimum of 8 hous a night), taking the right supplements for you, addressing psychological and relationship issues and not allowing stress to harm you, and finally making sure your hormone balance is correct with the aid of bioidenticals, human identical hormones, are the most important ingredients of a healthy life. Learning how to listen to your body and not allowing fear or intimidation to rule you and affect your attitude is another important piece of the puzzle you cannot miss out on. At the end of the day it is your body, your life, and you are in control of your outcome.

What are natural treatments for women's health issues?

What is withdrawal bleeding?
Healthwise answeredWithdrawal bleeding is menstrual-like bleeding that occurs when a woman takes cycles of hormone therapy or birth control pills. Women take progestin for several weeks and then do not take progestin for several days; this drop in progestin triggers the bleeding. Withdrawal bleeding occurs during each cycle of hormone therapy about five days after progestin use ends. This is healthy for the uterine lining, which thickens with each hormone cycle, then sheds (sloughs off) in response to the drop in progestin. Withdrawal bleeding can happen when it is not expected. For example, it can come and go after stopping hormone therapy or while taking birth control pills. If withdrawal bleeding continues over a period of time, see your doctor.

Should I see my doctor about a lump on my labia?
Mary Chappell, MD, Obstetrics & Gynecology, answeredI usually recommend my patients come in so I can see the lump. You can explain it to me all day on the phone but I have to SEE it to diagnose it. And if I still don't know what it is, I will biopsy it for a diagnosis.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
