Estrogen versus Estrogen and Progesterone and Uterine Cancer

Like all medications, estrogen is a powerful hormone with benefits and risks that have to be weighed and personalized for each woman. Forty years ago estrogen was so popular and considered so beneficial that almost all women were encouraged to take it from the time of menopause until death. Unfortunately, it was found that estrogen alone can cause cancer of the uterus. Women who have had a hysterectomy and had their uterus removed don’t have this problem.

Then researchers discovered that women who take daily estrogen combined with progesterone for at least 10 days of the month did not get uterine cancer. There were some risks of blood clots and strokes, but overall it was believed that estrogen plus progesterone protected the uterus from uterine cancer and estrogen helped to prevent heart disease. The heart disease part of this changed with more research.

Why I Chose an Elective C-Section

E-mail Print PDF
Dr, Jennifer Berman, Site Medical Director
A growing number of women are requesting delivery by elective cesarean section without an accepted "medical indication," and physicians were in the past either uncertain how to respond or unwilling to perform elective C-Sections.

The reason being that it was believed that the risk of surgery outweighed the benefit to the fetus and the mother. This trend is now changing due to the fact that cesarean delivery is much safer now than in the past and to the recognition that most studies looking at the risks of cesarean section were biased, due to fact that women in studies more likely to have been selected for an elective cesarean sections as well as non elective C-Sections.

If you had asked me 5 years ago whether I thought that meditation was an integral component of health and wellness I probably would have shrugged and perhaps even chuckled. Well, since then, I have learned that meditation, in particular it’s affect on stress reduction, is an integral part of health wellness and sexuality and should be incorporated into every woman’s daily routine.

Easier said than done you may say. Take it from me, a Type A, multi-tasking do-it-all woman who can’t sit still for 5 minutes, much less try to clear my mind and to still for 20 minutes.

Update on the Female Condom

E-mail Print PDF

The Female Patient

A less expensive version of the female condom (FC) was recently approved by the FDA. Will this increase the use of this contraceptive form, which offers several important benefits for women? Male condoms have played an important role in global HIV prevention over the past few decades. In recent years, women have become increasingly vulnerable to HIV, especially in highly afflicted sub-Saharan Africa.
