Originally published on October 4, 2013 7:37 pm Back in 2002, a research study blew apart the widely held belief that hormone replacement therapy protected women from heart disease and other chronic ills. Instead, the Women's Health Initiative study found that taking estrogen plus progestin hormone replacement therapy — HRT — actually increased a woman's risk of heart disease and breast cancer. A second WHI study published two years later reinforced the message, finding that taking estrogen alone also increased the risk of stroke, dementia and other problems. This week, the Women's Health Initiative published a final comprehensive report on its long, broad and deep look at women and HRT. JoAnn Manson, lead investigator of the Women's Health Initiative and a professor of medicine at the Harvard School of ...

Two of the more important routine screenings women should be aware of are regular mammograms and pap tests, which can both diagnose risk factors for certain types of cancer. Screenings also might detect microcalcifications that can sometimes indicate breast cancer as well. Most organizations, including the National Cancer Institute, recommend that women age 40 and over have a mammogram done every one to two years to help catch cancer early, which improves a woman's chance of survival. In the United States, roughly 68 percent of women have gotten mammograms within the last two years, according to the CDC. It is recommended that women age 35 to 39 get a baseline mammogram so they have an image of the healthy breast to which future mammograms can be compared. Pap Tests.

Then there’s the frustration of why some women experience horrible PMS symptoms while others barely experience a twinge, it’s no big deal. Thankfully, many of these symptoms can be warded off with lifestyle changes and treatments to reduce the effects caused by the main root of PMS symptoms, which is hormonal imbalance. It’s interesting how some women hardly feel the effects of PMS, or only suffer from a couple symptoms, while other women experience symptoms that interrupt daily life and routines. The main element that determines if your body responds to hormonal changes with PMS is if there is an imbalance. Other lifestyle factors such as stress, pre-existing health conditions and diet have a huge effect on someone’s individual response to PMS. Other women who experience more severe symptoms may choose to a ...

These FDA approvals represent important new options for clinicians and women, and the availability of lower dose products will facilitate better individualization of therapy, says Victoria Kusiak, Wyeth's vice-president of Global Medical Affairs and North American medical director, in a company press release. Although representatives at Wyeth did not respond to repeated attempts at contact for this story, company press releases include the following statement: Wyeth Pharmaceuticals' low dose hormone therapies are part of a family of well-studied products.

Sweden aims for an energy supply system with zero net atmospheric greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.MenopauseAlcohol and cardiovascular disease: Excessive alcohol intake is associated with an elevated risk of alcoholic liver disease (ALD), heart failure, some cancers, and accidental injury, and is a leading cause of preventable death in industrialized countries. However, extensive research has shown that moderate alcohol intake is associated with health benefits, including less cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and lower all-cause mortality.Vaginal floraMercian Way: The Mercian Way is a long cycle path that runs from Salisbury in Wiltshire to Chester in Cheshire. Operated by Sustrans, it is part of National Cycle Route 45, but is also well used by walkers.Estradiol cypionate: Estradiol cypionate (INN, USAN) (brand names Depo-Estradiol, Depofemin, Estradep, and many others), or estradiol cipionate, is a synthetic ester, specifically the 3-cyclopentylpropanoyl ester, of the natural estrogen, estradiol. It was first introduced in 1952 by Upjohn in the United States, and has been in widespread use since.

(1/615) Potential explanations for the educational gradient in coronary heart disease: a population-based case-control study of Swedish women.

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the association between educational attainment and coronary heart disease (CHD) and the factors that may explain this association. METHODS: This population-based case-control study included 292 women with CHD who were 65 years or younger and 292 age-matched controls. RESULTS: Compared with the adjusted odds ratio for CHD associated with college education, the age-adjusted odds ratio associated with mandatory education (< or = 9 years) was 1.87 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.23, 2.84) and the odds ratio for high school education was 1.35 (95% CI = 0.81, 2.25) (P for trend < .01). The odds ratio for mandatory education was reduced by 82%, to 1.16 (95% CI = 0.69, 2.09), after adjustment for psychosocial stress, unhealthy lifestyle patterns, hemostatic factors, hypertension, and lipids. CONCLUSIONS: Much of the increased risk of CHD in women with low education appears to be linked to psychosocial stress and lifestyle factors. Hemostatic factors, lipids, and hypertension also contribute to a lesser extent. These factors may be considered in strategies geared to reducing socioeconomic inequalities in cardiovascular health.  (+info)

(2/615) Is whole grain intake associated with reduced total and cause-specific death rates in older women? The Iowa Women's Health Study.

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to determine whether nutrient-rich whole grains reduce mortality risk. METHODS: The study included 38,740 Iowa women, aged 55 to 69 years. A food frequency questionnaire was used to obtain data on grain intake. RESULTS: Median whole grain intake quintiles ranged from a median of 0.2 to more than 3 servings per day. Women with higher intakes had healthier lifestyles and less baseline disease. The total death rate decreased in increasing quintiles, and the pattern repeated for cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other causes combined. Adjusted for lifestyle and baseline disease, the relative hazard rate ratio for total death was about 0.85 in daily consumers of whole grain. Findings persisted in strata of baseline healthy and diseased and were not explained by dietary fiber. Rates of total mortality, but not cardiovascular disease mortality, were higher among frequent consumers of refined grain. CONCLUSIONS: Total mortality risk was inversely associated with whole grain intake and positively associated with refined grain intake. Refined grains contributed more than 20% of energy intake, and whole grains contributed 1%. Substitution of whole for refined grain may reduce chronic disease risk in the United States.  (+info)

(3/615) Lead and hypertension in a sample of middle-aged women.

OBJECTIVES: The role of lead exposure as a risk factor for hypertension is less well defined among women than among men. This case-control study assessed the relation of blood and bone lead concentrations to hypertension in women. METHODS: Cases and controls were a subsample of women from the Nurses' Health Study. Hypertension was defined as a physician diagnosis of hypertension between 1988 and 1994 or measured systolic blood pressure > or = 140 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure > or = 90 mm Hg. RESULTS: Mean (SD) blood lead concentration was 0.15 (0.11) mumol/L; mean tibia and patella lead concentrations by K-x-ray fluorescence were 13.3 (9.0) and 17.3 (11.1) micrograms/g, respectively. After adjustment for potentially confounding factors, an increase from the 10th to the 90th percentile of patella lead values (25 micrograms/g) was associated with approximately 2-fold (95% confidence interval = 1.1, 3.2) increased risk of hypertension. There was no association between hypertension and either blood or tibia lead concentrations. CONCLUSIONS: These findings support a potentially important role for low-level lead exposure as a risk factor for hypertension among non-occupationally exposed women.  (+info)

(4/615) Mildly dyskaryotic smear results: does it matter what women know?

BACKGROUND: As of 1992, all women in the UK who have a first mildly dyskaryotic cervical smear are placed under surveillance for 6 months rather than being referred for immediate colposcopy. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to explore the relationship between anxiety and understanding about mild dyskaryotic, and to propose and discuss a method of analysing free text comments written by participants in studies based on structured questionnaires. METHODS: The freely scripted text of 236 women who had completed a questionnaire as part of a randomized controlled trial to assess the impact of an educational package was analysed. Randomization group status was concealed. Texts expressing similar views were grouped together and categorized. A matrix was drawn up to encompass the categories, and the comments were reallocated accordingly. RESULTS: Examination of the free text revealed two dimensions, concern and knowledge. There were no differences with respect to the apparent level of concern between the two randomization groups. However, comments from the intervention group were significantly more likely to have been classified as expressing good or vague knowledge than those from women in the control group. CONCLUSION: Although the educational intervention improved women's knowledge about the meaning of an abnormal smear result, this better knowledge was not correlated with less anxiety about the result. The free text analysis was a useful supplement to the main trial questionnaires. It demonstrated the existence of a range of understanding about cervical dyskaryosis, of anxieties relating to the receipt of such a result and the degree of interest women showed in acquiring further information.  (+info)

(5/615) Women patients' preferences for female or male GPs.

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate general preferences to see a male or female GP either some or all of the time, and specific preferences to see a female primary health care (PHC) worker for individual health issues; to compare these preferences with reported consultation behaviour; and to explore women's evaluations of the quality of PHC services in relation to their preferences and consultation behaviour. METHOD: Results are reported on 881 women aged 16-65 years who had consulted their GP in the previous 6 months. Logistical regression analysis was undertaken to evaluate whether a general preference to see another woman is more important than specific women's health issues in determining why some women regularly choose to consult a female GP. RESULTS: General preference was 2.6 times more important than specific health issues in predicting choice of a female GP in a mixed-sex practice. Nearly a half (49.1 %) of women attending male-only practices stated that they wanted to see a female GP in at least some circumstances, compared with 63.8% of women in mixed-sex practices. In total, 65.5% of the sample stated that there was at least one specific health issue for which they would only want to be seen by a woman PHC worker. The most positive evaluations of the quality of GP services were made by women normally seeing a male GP in mixed-sex practices and the least positive evaluations were given by women in male-only GP practices CONCLUSIONS: In order to meet women's expressed preferences, every GP practice should have at least one female GP available at least some of the time and every GP practice should employ a female PHC worker.  (+info)

(6/615) Participation in breast cancer susceptibility testing protocols: influence of recruitment source, altruism, and family involvement on women's decisions.

OBJECTIVES: We offered education, counseling, and family-based BRCA1/2 testing to women at increased risk of breast cancer and assessed (a) their reasons for participating and (b) whether source of recruitment, desire to help research (altruism), and the need to communicate with their affected relative about testing distinguish those who did and those who did not complete each phase of our protocol. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We sent invitations to 403 women who had completed a questionnaire on BRCA1/2 testing, 178 of whom were considered high risk because they had more than one relative on the same side of the family with early-onset breast cancer. RESULTS: Among the 132 high-risk respondents from the mid-Atlantic states (where testing was offered), 36% (n = 47) were interested in counseling. Those who actually attended counseling were more likely to have some college education, a higher perceived risk of breast cancer, and a greater fear of stigma and were less likely to have a daughter than those who did not attend. The reasons for attending that were rated "very important" were to learn about the test (80%), to have the test (43%), and to help research (38%). High-risk women were eligible for testing only if their affected relative was willing to be tested and tested positive. After the session, 83% intended to ask their affected relative to be tested, but only half of the affected relatives actually came for pretest counseling. The proportion of participants who ultimately involved an affected relative was 2.5 times higher among women from a clinical population (25%) than among those from a registry population (10%); in this latter population, an altruistic desire to help research was a greater motivator for participation than interest in being tested. CONCLUSIONS: Source of recruitment influences both motivations to attend education and counseling and actual testing behavior. These results have implications for interpretation of findings from studies in research settings as well as for informed consent and decision-making in the context of family-based testing.  (+info)

(7/615) Older women's illness representations of cancer: a qualitative study.

This paper investigates the role of illness representations in older women's utilization of cancer screening. Older women's own beliefs, or illness representations, of cancer and cancer screening in relation to breast cancer and cervical cancer were explored using relatively unstructured, face-to-face interviews. Twenty women aged between 45 and 70 were interviewed, half of whom were regular screeners and half under-screeners. A comparison of the illness representations of the screeners with the under-screeners indicates some differences regarding cancer in general, and substantial differences regarding the treatment and cure of cancer. The screeners expressed less concern about cancer and gave more positive examples of the successful treatment of cancer. The under-screeners were more likely to express cynicism about the medical profession, to indicate that a person would have symptoms if they had cancer, that they would not want most of the treatment available for cancer, that screening is more important for younger women and that the use of alternative therapies negates the need for cancer screening. Few differences emerged between the two groups regarding the causes of cancer.  (+info)

(8/615) Gender difference in management of epilepsy-what women are hearing.

This study reports the results of a questionnaire survey of female members of the British Epilepsy Association (BEA). The women were asked about their concerns about their epilepsy with respect to being female, and, in particular, asked about the information they had been given on important topics such as contraception and pregnancy. A questionnaire was sent to 6000 BEA female members of whom 1855 (31%) replied. Forty-six percent of the women (mainly aged between 26 and 45) stated that they currently used some form of contraception. The most frequently used method was the condom (34%). Twenty-two percent of the women using contraception were taking the oral contraceptive pill whilst a further 4% were using a hormonal contraceptive injection. Fifty-one percent of the women aged between 16 and 55 claimed not to have received any advice about possible interactions between contraception and antiepileptic drug therapy. With regards to pregnancy, 34% claimed they had not received any advice and 25% had not discussed pregnancy with anyone. The women planning to have children over the subsequent 2 years received the greatest amount of advice about epilepsy and pregnancy, although 20% still claimed not to have received any information. Thirty-four percent of the women in the study stated that they were either menopausal or post-menopausal. Twenty-nine percent of women who had taken hormone replacement therapy in the past reported an increase in seizure frequency compared with 18% amongst current users. This survey has shown that women with epilepsy want, and need, more information and counselling about issues relating to contraception, pregnancy and the menopause.  (+info)

women.....?


  • I recently asked a question about politics and said what I was for and against and got some pretty hateful responses such as since I am pro life that as a woman I make them sick! I had an abortion when I was 14 and had no idea at the time what I was doing. I would give anything to take it back. My question is how many of you who have had abortions are pro choice? It seems to me that just women who have never had to go through something like that are pro choice. Am I right? I was 14 he was 18 and we are still together today (thank you ) my parents talked us into doing it.... You think that a 14-18 year old should be allowed to do that?
  • I always thought that if I was ever confronted with the situation, I would have an abortion. I was all for pro-choice. Then it happened. I couldn't do it once I knew there was a life inside of me. Hey, that's just me. I think it should be every woman's choice, and if she can not think of the fetus as a "life" and abort, then that's where she's coming from and shouldn't be criticized. Likewise, if someone can't bring themselve to do it, so be it. That is also her choice. Bottom line: Stop trying to force your views and opinions on others and live and let live.


WOMEN.......___????______?


  • OK.this has been bugging me forever.So id like honest answers please.have you ever met a man that when inlove only fantasizes about the women he is inlove with ???
  • Well you can't know for sure unless you're a man I guess. My boyfriend says he fantasizes about me all the time, he never mentions thinking about anyone else, but then again what would he get out of mentioning that? My guess would be that most men fantasize about whatever they want to, I'm like that. Usually I just fantasize about my boyfriend, but if I do think about someone else then it's nothing I worry about. Even men in love can have wandering minds! :)

why do women get morning sickness, some worse than others?


  • Some women never get it, some have it bad. Some have it every pregnancy, some have it maybe one out 2 or 3 pregnancies. Some throw up a few times & others never stop the entire pregnancy?? I know that horomones play a role but why do different women react so differently to the rushing horomones than other women & different pregnancies?
  • Everyone is different.


How come women like to have their hair pulled during sexual intercourse?


  • I'm being serious. What exactly about that turns women on? Every girlfriend i've had has asked me to do that during sex or something they would like me to do during sex in our conversations. Does that help women reach orgasm faster or something to that effect? Or is it that women are more turned on by rough sex? I also wondered is it just a matter of a woman wanting to be dominated by a man or her sex partner?
  • You just so happened to find a series of women who like it... Women can have very different appetites for sex (more than men it _seems_). It can be the psychological effects of it (domination is most obvious) or the physical of having something to focus them on the good sensations or simply to have more sensation (regardless of good or bad).


What percentage of women shave their pubic hair?

  • It varies on the age, and type of women really. For instance, if you were to walk in on a bunch of 20 year olds in a locker room, I'd say about 75-80% of them would be shaved/trimmed. However, if you were to walk in on a locker room of 40 year olds, I'd say about 10%, if not less.


Why are there so few women that can cook good?


  • Specifically for the women being born after the 50's. TV dinners, frozen pizzas, and a simple peanut butter sandwich is what seems to be the only things that these women can make. Is it because that a woman that can cook really good home meals are portrayed as a housewife in which is undesirable to these women born after the 50's?
  • Well there are still plenty of women that cook exceptionally well, but there maybe something to the notion that women, in this day and age, are not as proficient as there predecessors in an era before the 1950s. I don’t think this is a result of modern women being turned off by the image of the subservient house wife, and having this image dissuade them from attaining skill at cooking. I just think that the modern world is not conducive to producing good domestic cooks, or housewives period. Modernity places too many demands on a woman’s time. Prior to WWII, most women were fixated with marriage, children, and maintaining domestic tranquility. Now, with women, rightfully I might add, gaining equal access to education and jobs previously reserved for men, they simply don’t have the time to perfect their coconut pie recipe, or find creative ways to make meat loaf palatable. They must, on top of being mothers and wives, have to excel at school, be on the top of their game in the corporate world, and be social and politically active – things that women living in the era of “I Love Lucy” seldom had to deal with. The specialization in cooking, that women before WWII took very seriously, has become subordinate to other interests. Personally, it does not bother me that good cooks are not as pervasive as they used to be among our female population. The work place and society has greatly benefited from the intelligence, creativity, diligence, and compassion that women have imparted to the world. Though I believe there are certain cases where the feminist movement has gone too far in making “equality” akin to “sameness”, in effect making women just like men, for the most part the feminist movement has deeply enriched our world. If the quality of our food has to suffer a bit, it is the price I am willing to pay. After all, the decrease in women cooking has caused a great surge in employment in the food services industry. So there is a positive side to this as well. In short the benefits of women living more fulfilling lives in this day and age, out weighs the paltry cost of not having our food exactly the way we like it.
