Irregular Period-More Serious than Stress

Filed under: menstural cycle,Uncategorized — Candace @ 10:29 am

When a woman’s period gets out of whack she may just blame the irregularities on stress and let the problem pass, when really it could be much more. Doctors often prescribe birth control to restore periods to a schedule before really checking the woman to see what the root of the problem is. Both blaming irregularities on stress and curing them with birth control is a bad approach to the issue.

Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) is an interference with reproductive hormones that plagues 1 in 100 women over 40 years old. POI has been known to increase the chance of infertility and can diminish healthy bones. Normally POI is undiagnosed for years before the symptoms are evident enough, but by then damage is already done.

Many women find the menstrual cycle as more of a bother than it should be. Actually menstrual cycles are a sign showing that the ovaries and endocrine system are functioning properly. Women may think “My periods are coming so everything is fine,” when in reality their ovaries aren’t supplying the hormones needed and birth control is merely masking the problems.

Maureen from New Jersey had this exact experience. After she was married, she went off the pill and began to try to start a family. When she didn’t get pregnant the doctor took a couple of blood tests and discovered that in her body, things were going wrong. The news was that she was post menopausal, though she was only 35.

The diagnosis was thankfully off. POI is often called “premature menopause” but the name isn’t actually as final as it seems. Menopause is a permanent thing where menstruation and ovulation both end. POI can come and go. It can temporarily stop the ovaries but it sometimes starts up again. Between 5 and 10 percent of women with POI are able to become pregnant and have successful births. Maureen did notice that her hormones did seem out of whack when she looked back on the past few years. She had experienced irregular periods and hot flashes. She saw her doctor and he immediately gave her a birth control prescription.

Instead of this immediate reaction doctors should be more evaluative of menstruation alterations. If you do not menstruate for 90 days, or if you have a cycle shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days you should be checked out by a doctor for other conditions. Just a simple blood test can find if you have POI.

Contraceptive Alternatives–Mechanical Barriers

Filed under: contraceptives,Uncategorized — Candace @ 10:29 am

Male and female condoms, as well as the diaphragm, cervical cap and spermicide are examples of mechanical barriers. Having already covered male and female condoms we can now look at the diaphragm, cervical cap, and spermicide.

The diaphragm is a latex cup with a spring-like instrument used to hold it in place in the vaginal canal. Diaphragms are made in all different sizes thus to be sized you must have a pelvic exam and measure the diagonal length of the vaginal canal. The diaphragm is inserted before intercourse and spermicidal is put on the inside of the dome which covers the cervix. The diaphragm works by preventing semen from entering in the cervix. The diaphragm works for 6 hours after being placed in the vaginal canal. If you do not remove the device in these 6 hours a fresh application of spermicide can be applied. After intercourse the diaphragm cannot be removed until at least 6 hours have passed. Depending on the age of the person using the diaphragm and the use of spermicide the effectiveness can range. On average the diaphragm is 80 percent effective. The diaphragm is beneficial because no hormones are used or altered and the woman has control of conception. The disadvantages of this device include the increased risks of having a urinary tract infection, the risk of toxic shock syndrome, and the high failure rate. The diaphragm can produce an odor if it is not properly cleaned.

The cervical cap is a cup shaped latex device that fits over the bottom of the cervix. A seal is made with a small groove in the device. The cap has to be three-quarters full of spermicide before being inserted into the vaginal canal. The cervical cap prevents sperm from entering the cervix and also is a chemical agent using spermicide. The cervical cap is normally 80 percent effective in nulliparous women and 60 percent effective in parous women. The advantage of using the cervical cap is that it provides continuous protection for its full extent of use, regardless of the number of intercourse acts. The cervical cap doesn’t use ongoing hormones. Unfortunately cervical erosion can result in spotting and you may be at an increased risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome when you leave the cervical cap in for lengthy periods of time. You may only use the cervical cap if you have a history of normal results on Pap tests.

Spermicide contains an agent which obliterates the cell membrane of the sperm. Spermicide comes in the form of jellies, foams, films, creams, suppositories and foaming tablets. Spermicide must be inserted into the vagina before intercourse. Using spermicide also lessens the chance of conditions caused by both viral and bacterial organisms that can lead to STI’s. The efficiency of protecting against HIV is limited. Spermicide is 94 percent effective if used perfectly, but typically has a 74 percent rate of effectiveness in the first year of use. The benefits of using spermicide are that the lubrication from spermicide can increase the pleasure for both partners, it is available without a prescription, and spermicide does not affect future fertility. Spermicide does not protect against HIV/AIDS. Using spermicide can be messy and cause a bad taste during oral sex. If spermicide is used frequently they can irritate the vagina and make it easier to contract STI’s. Spermicide can cause an allergic reaction in some people.

The Need for a Low Dose Birth Control Patch

Birth Control Patch, Housekeeping, Ortho EvraWhile the Pill currently stands as the most commonly used form of contraception used by women today, there are certain setbacks associated with birth control pills that cause women to think twice before signing up to start their day with a pill each morning. The number one reason: forgetfulness. Sure, there are plenty of iPhone apps on the market today that promise to prevent any lapses in memory, but for some women, especially mothers with children, turning on the iPhone isn’t an integral part of the daily routine.

Enter the Birth Control Patch. It’s an adhesive patch that simply sticks to skin like a band-aid, and administers the same hormones found in birth control pills straight into the blood stream. For women with busy lives who want to delay childbearing, the birth control patch is an excellent alternative form of contraception. The pregnancy rate of the birth control patch is identical to the pregnancy rate of the Pill, as the FDA estimates that for every one hundred women who use the patch or birth control pills regularly, five will become pregnant.

Unfortunately, though the hormonal birth control patch has proven itself as a viable form of contraception, medical professionals are becoming increasingly concerned over the long term side effects of hormonal birth control methods. Because the hormonal birth control patch transfers estrogen hormones directly into the blood stream, this concern highlights the need for a low dose birth control patch. Though there are several different forms of birth control patches on the market today, an American pharmaceutical company is currently conducting clinical trials for a new lose dose birth control patch. This new birth control patch has lower hormone levels of estrogen and progestin and is designed like other birth control products to effectively prevent pregnancy.

Hashsoft Releases myPill for the iPhone

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — John @ 3:07 pm

Hashsoft has released their myPill 1.0 application for the iPhone. The application not only helps women remember to take their daily pill, it can also be used to track the history of their birth control usage, such as noting which days you have missed your pill, and it can predict your future periods.

While myPill is not the first “reminder” apps, it definitely is one of the most versatile. The app shows you a simulated look at your pack of birth control or if you would prefer, can show you a calendar view. By simply dragging your finger, you can look to the next month to help you predict when your next period may be. You can use this feature to predict your period up to 6 months into the future.

Once the app has been configured, you will receive an alert every day at a chosen hour until you are finished your current pack. There is then a seven day break until a new pack begins automatically. You are able to customize the message you are to receive to remind you to take your pill or how many days are left until your period.

The myPill application is available for download and I’m sure it will help women remember and manage their birth control pills every month. The myPill is definitely an app worth looking into at the very least.

Condoms Use Is Up, but Effectiveness Is Down

The myth that a girl won’t get pregnant the first time that she has sex has been broken. Virgins are very commonly using condoms the first time they have sex. The use of condoms has risen significantly, especially in premarital sex and first-time couples. This is significant because 94% of women ages 15 to 44 have had premarital sex. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the use of condoms has increased from 55 percent to 88 percent in less than 20 years.

This dramatic change is great news to hear, but there is a downside. Condoms still aren’t providing 100 percent protection. 50 percent of pregnancies in the USA are unintentional. It is encouraging to hear that other methods, such as the pill and other contraceptive methods are being used more often. The pill is used by 10.7 million people, and sterilization is used by 10.3 million.

Oral contraceptives fail most commonly because the contraceptive users use the pills inconstantly or otherwise incorrectly. Thankfully we have accomplished the current popularity of the birth control pill contraceptive, now all we have to do is ensure that the pills are taken properly, and consistently.

  • There are now IPhone and IPod applications available which provide a daily ‘pill reminder’ with a settable alarm.
  • As well you can set a daily alarm on your phone or make a note on your calendar.
  • There are some online calendars you can set to send an SMS text to your phone each day with a reminder.
  • Make sure to keep your medication in view.
  • Ask a close friend or relative to remind you

5 STI Risk Factors

At least one in every four Americans will contract and STI at some point in their life.   STI’s are a serious health problem to adults and if they go untreated, they can cause permanent  damage.  Certain factors in your life will determine your risk of contracting an STI, so here are the top 5 STI risk factors –

1. Unprotected Sex – This one is a given, but it is very important.  You’re more likely to contract a sexually transmitted infection if you do not use barrier methods of birth control like condoms.

2. Being Young – People between 18 and 29 are more likely to be infected with an STI than an older person.  Women and men in their 20’s have the highest rates of STI’s out of any age group.  This could be because young women are more susceptible to them.  Their cervix’s aren’t fully developed and they are more likely to experience tearing during intercourse.  Young people in general are less likley to practice safe sex by using condoms, and are more likely to have multiple partners.

3.Alcohol and drug use
–  People who use alcohol and drugs on regular basis may have lowered inhibitions and may be less “picky” about who they choose for a partner.  Those under the influence of alcohol and drugs may be more stubborn about condom use.

4. Having multiple partners – The more partners you have the more likely you are to be exposed to STI’s. Usually people with multiple partners choose partners who have also had multiple partners. This increases the risk of your partner having contracted an STI from a different partner.  Your risk increases even higher if you hire a sexual professional because the truth is they aren’t being paid to enforce safe sex with partners.

5. Relying only on Birth Control Pills – for most sexually active people their main concern is pregnancy.  Lots of couples choose birth control pills as their only contraceptive method.  This is 99% effective against pregnancy, but this does not protect against STI’s.  Once a couple is established in using the pill as their only form of protection, they will become reluctant to use condoms.  This can be because they have gotten used to a sexual routine without condoms, or perhaps because they just don’t like using them.  The safest option is to use birth control pills AND condoms.

The Risks of Combination Birth Control Pills

There’s a lot of negativity associated with combination pills like Yaz and Yasmin where there really shouldn’t be. There are lawsuits all over TV and the internet that suggest combination birth control pills causes pancreatic cancer or organ failure. In reality, these lawsuits should not exist.

It is a patient’s job to ask questions and assess risks with their doctors before taking any medications. In addition, a new article from The Medical Letter – Volume 52, Issue 1334, 2010, reveals that although combination oral contraceptives increase the risk of developing venous thromboembolism (VTE), the risk is low. In fact, the risk of developing VTE while taking oral contraceptives is no different than the risk you have when you are pregnant. Pregnant women have a higher risk of developing VTE than women taking combination pills.

It is even debatable that the risk of developing VTE is worth the benefits that the pill provides. In addition to preventing pregnancy combination birth control pills can lower your risk of developing endometrial cancer, and reduce dysfunctional uterine bleeding, reduce acne, control menstrual periods, and reduce the symptoms of PMS. It is estimated that over 40,000 women in the United States will develop endometrial cancer this year, compared to the strongly age dependent VTE that will occur in 8-10 women in 10,000. All methods of birth control have their own set of risks and benefits. If you are concerned about your risks while taking birth control, don’t be hesitant to ask your doctor. You can’t rely on what you see on TV or hear from others when it comes to choosing the right form of contraceptive for you.

Teenage Pregnancy Rate Down

Filed under: teen pregnancy,teenagers who get pregnant,Uncategorized — Tags: — Tanveen @ 3:22 pm

In comparison to other developed countries, the United States has the highest rate of teen pregnancy. It is twice the amount of Canada! It was in 2008 that teen pregnancy dropped for the first time in nearly two years and this downward trend will hopefully continue.

What a lot of parents fail to acknowledge is that their “little girl” or “little boy” has grown up. Often parents feel that their “children” (young adults) are too young to be talked to about sex. However, this is not the case. More than 50% of teenagers have had sex before the age of 18.

Most teenagers who have sex at an early age, do it without thinking of the consequences. A discussion with your child would definitely make them more aware. As well, children are now being given more knowledge on the subject at school. They are learning about different contraceptive methods they could use if they wish to have sex and how to say no if they are being pressured into something like this. Not only school, and home, but TV shows are also starting to show the effects that teen pregnancy can have on a teenager and his/ her live, especially that of the young woman’s. One such show is “16 and Pregnant” which airs on MTV.

A great effort has been made to inform teenagers and this has lead to a 2% decline in teen pregnancy. Hopefully the rate of teen pregnancy drops even more.

Please remember that majority of teenagers who have had sex say they regret having it at such an early age. Don’t let this happen to your child.

Mirena IUD


For women who are unable to use the standard types of birth control, IUD is the next best option. The copper covered IUD is the only no hormonal method of birth control available. An IUD (intrauterine device) is a piece of plastic placed inside the uterus to prevent pregnancy. IUD’s are one of the most successful birth control methods available. IUD’s are a fairly new method of birth control; they were only made available to all women in 2005.

A young woman entering college began taking birth control pills. She discovered quickly that she has allergies to synthetic hormones. The only form of birth control without hormones was an IUD. Thanks to the FDA’s recent approval of IUD’s she was able to use this form of birth control.

There was fear and a dire reputation of IUD’s in the past, when a large recall was issued in the late 1970’s. Recently IUDs were FDA approved, and have quickly gaining popularity and the product recall is being rapidly forgotten. In the course of one year IUD’s popularity increased by 23 percent.

The IUD has had a bad past. Prior to 1974 the most popular IUD – the Dalkon Shield – was fashioned differently than the current one. The shield allowed STI’s to get inside the uterus and fallopian tubes. This clogged them with scar tissue. Due to numerous deaths from septic pregnancies and other problems connected to the shield it was discontinued and later recalled. The IUD was scarred with a bad reputation for all the trouble it caused.

In 2001, Mirena IUD was put onto the birth control market. This new type of IUD used small doses of progestin. It was feared originally that Mirena could cause permanent infertility in women. This fear was cleared up in a study done in Virginia. It was proven by this study that new IUD’s do not increase the risk of infertility even in women that have several partners. It was also suggested in this study that Mirena protects from STI’s by producing large amounts of cervical mucus which blocks bacteria.

An IUD can be inserted by a doctor. When you have an IUD inserted you will require regular checkups to ensure the IUD stays safely placed and no complications arise.

Who Should Use IUDs?

IUDs (Intra-Uterine Devices) are becoming increasingly popular in North America. The IUD is a low-maintenance, effective form of birth control. Once a device is in place, it can work for 5-12 years (depending on the device) and you can have it taken out sooner if you need to have a child or change methods. IUDs protect you from pregnancy each time you are sexually active and you don’t feel it or notice it’s there.
The IUD is the best option for women who have a low risk of acquiring STIs (sexually transmitted infections), need to avoid estrogen-based products and want a reversible type of birth control. Married women or women in a long-term relationship over the age of 20 are the best candidates. Although young adults can use IUDs effectively, they are more likely than adults to have multiple partners and are therefore at an increased risk of contracting an STI. The IUD isn’t a good first choice for a newly sexually active teen because she cannot predict her partners future sexual behavior. In addition, problems including expulsion, removal for bleeding and pain, and pregnancies are more common in teens than older women using the IUD. Talk to your doctor about your birth control options to find out what is best for you.

Birth Control Pills Lengthen Life

A British medical study that has recently concluded that women who have taken birth control pills are more likely to have a longer lifespan. This study observed the effects of the first generation of birth control pills in over forty thousand women, and has compared the number of deaths of those who were taking the pill to those who weren’t since 1968. Overall, this study demonstrated that the health benefits of taking birth control pills can outweigh any initial risks associated with taking birth control.

In fact, this research has further shown that taking the pill decreases the risk of death caused by bowel cancer by an average of thirty-eight percent. And although birth control has been proven to slightly raise the risk of developing breast and cervical cancer, this study demonstrated that overall, birth control pills decrease the chance of dying from any other diseases, including heart disease and all cancers by twelve percent.

But before jumping on board with birth control forever, remember that this method of contraception is not without risk, and that it’s important to outline your medical history with a doctor before taking the pill. The birth control pills that were observed in this study are slightly different than the modern products, which may not have the same life-lengthening benefits.
Though the women in this study took birth control pills all at various points in their lives for various amounts of time, the study concluded that “Oral contraception [is] not associated with an increased long term risk of death” so much that a net benefit is truly apparent.

The First Forms of Contraception

The first contraceptive methods mark much further back in history than anyone would expect; the first known forms of birth control date all the way back to 1850 B.C.E., when Egyptian women took to inserting objects and concoctions into their vagina to effectively block or kill sperm. Called pessaries, the Egyptians frequently used different concoctions made from honey and even crocodile feces as what they perceived to be effective forms of birth control.

Honey as a Contraceptive?
Although few of us would place our faith in honey as a contraceptive, the recipe for the honey concoction that the early Egyptians used was quite effective. The recipe involves the primary ingredients of acacia berries, colocynth and honey. When acacia berries are compounded, they form lactic anhydride, which is extremely similar to lactic acid, a component often used in modern contraceptive jellies. It is unclear what the colocynth ingredient may have been; however, many historians will categorize it as a plant called Citrullus colocynthis Schrad, which produces a type of bitter apple with properties that may induce abortion. The use of Citrullus colocynthis Schrad as an abortifacient is still utilized today among many Arabic women.

Are Crocodile Feces Actually Effective?
Not many of us would truly ever wish to use crocodile feces as a pessary form of contraception, and it’s a good thing too, because under modern medical scrutinization, the recipe of the crocodile feces concoction does not appear to be effective in any way. In fact, according to modern medical science, the insertion of crocodile feces into the vagina is likely to increase chances of becoming pregnant. Crocodile dung is quite alkaline, and because the optimal pH level conditions to encourage pregnancy are more alkaline than the natural pH levels of the vagina, the feces would not act as an effective contraceptive. The Egyptians would have used crocodile dung likely because of the similarities between the crocodile and depictions of the Egyptian god Seth, who was associated with miscarriage and abortion in their religious beliefs.

The Egyptians were the first in what is now a multi-million dollar industry today, which, thankfully has modernized to provide several different methods of birth control from condoms to oral contraceptives, none of which include any form of animal feces.

Your Guide to Spring Break

A study done by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy states that under fifty percent of young people use contraception when having sex. Unfortunately many young girls fail to understand the importance of contraceptive methods. Here are a few tips girls may find useful during spring break.

  1. Bring Condoms – Always keep a few condoms in your purse, just in case. Condoms are the only option in preventing STI’s (Sexually Transmitted Infections), so always use one. If you are using birth control pills, make sure you pack enough and always take them at the same time each day.
  2. What If? – If the condom slips off you can rely on the Plan B® One Step. This pill is used up to 72 hours after having unprotected sex as a contraceptive method. If you are 17 or older you are able to get it from any pharmacy without a prescription.
  3. Take Your Pill – If you are on the pill, make sure you take the pack with you on your trip. Forgetting to take the pill will increase the risk of pregnancy.
  4. ICE – If you end up in the hospital due to some injury or illness, you may find yourself unable to phone somebody to inform them of your situation. Program your mom’s – or anyone else’s – phone number into your phone under “ICE” (“In Case of Emergency”) so that you will be prepared no matter what happens. Also make sure you get the phone number of a local cab service, and the hotel you are staying in.
  5. Designate Someone Sober – Just to keep everyone straight and make sure nobody makes any bad decisions when they are drunk, have one person designated to not drink each night. Make a rule where nobody should leave with any people they met before the Spring Break trip.
  6. Be Wary – Watch where your drink originates from. Make sure you accept drinks you have seen being made. Do not leave your drink unattended. It is very easy for someone to slip something into your drink, so be careful.

Women May Be Using Unsafe Oral Contraceptives


Various brands of oral contraceptives have been linked to a heightened risk of contracting venous thrombosis. Venous thrombosis – a blood clot forming inside a vein – may cause soreness, but the infection in itself has no serious effects. Venous thrombosis can easily lead to a pulmonary embolus. This is where a piece of a blood clot formed in a vein breaks off and eventually ends up in the lungs. This disease is very serious and may be deadly if left untreated.

A study conducted in the Netherlands compared 1524 patients diagnosed with either venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism and 1760 healthy patients who were not using oral contraceptives. The women using oral contraceptives had 5 times more of a risk of contracting venous thrombosis than the women not using oral contraceptives.

A follow up study was conducted in Denmark. Healthy women between 15 and 49 years old were studied. A total of 4213 cases of venous thrombosis were found; 2045 of these causes were from women using oral contraceptives.

The type of progestogens in the contraceptives affected the risk of contracting venous thrombosis. When you 1st begin using oral contraceptive your risk of getting venous thrombosis will be high, regardless of what brand you use. Levonorgestrel, a type of progestogen, has the lowest risk of contracting venous thrombosis. The progestogens providing the highest risk of contracting venous thrombosis are gestodene, desogestrel, drospirenone, and cyproterone acetate.

The best oral contraceptives that can be used are those with a low level of oestrogen. Levonorgestrel or norethisterone are fine to have in oral contraceptives. The most recent progestogens are more likely to cause venous thrombosis. The risk of getting venous thrombosis is low (only 5 in 100,000 people), but when using oral contraceptive the risk increases up to 25 in 100,000 people.

When You Should Switch Your Birth Control Pill

The pill is a common contraception option among women. It is an easy way to prevent pregnancy if taken properly and can be up to 99% effective. However some specific types of birth control pills may not be the best option for you. Your body may react differently to the medicine, and many women choose to switch to a different pill if the side effects are unbearable.

Side effects – There are usually side effects with most birth control pills. If you experience minor side effects its not a sign to switch pills. Side effects are common in most people, and the side effects are listed in the booklet that comes with a pack of pills. Common side effects can include headaches, nausea, vomiting, decreased libido, and changes in blood pressure. If you notice any unusual symptoms mention them to your doctor on your next visit – they may suggest switching pills.

Menstruation Changes – If there has been any change in your regular menstrual cycle after going on the pill, consider the changes. While on the pill your periods should be lighter and shorter, not heavier and longer. If you experience increased menstrual bleeding after going on the pill, tell your doctor and see if they recommend the use of a different pill. If you feel increased discomfort during your period (painful cramps or other symptoms starting a week before your period) inform your doctor. The pill should not make period symptoms worse. If birth control improves the comfort of your menstrual period, it is not necessary to switch pills.

Weight Gain – Before you assume that the pill is causing you to gain wait, think about any lifestyle changes that you’ve made after going on the pill. People often blame weight gain on birth control, but there is very little evidence that the pill causes weight gain. Pills that are higher in estrogen levels can lead to an increased appetite and water retention, making you bloated. Tell your doctor if you feel that your pill caused you to gain weight. They may switch you to a pill with lower hormone levels such as Yasmin or Alesse.

Mood Swings – You may experience mood swings that started with taking the pill. The hormone levels in birth control pills cause mood swings in most women. If you notice that you are starting to feel depressed or moody for no apparent reason, it could be because of the birth control pill that you are on. You may want to talk to your doctor about your options, but in most cases switching pills will not solve this problem.

Cost- The birth control you are on may be too expensive for your lifestyle. If you are having trouble paying for your birth control every month, try switching to a generic brand. These pills are more affordable than the brand name pills you pay for.

Usually, different types of birth control pills can improve your symptoms and side effects. However, if you feel that birth control pills aren’t right for you, there are many other contraceptive options available such as patches, rings, and IUDs.

A New iPhone App Helps a Woman Get Pregnant

There are a number of helpful iPod applications that can be used by pregnant women to do things like track the baby’s growth or easily generate a due date. An application called Pregnancy App is designed to help shorten the waiting time before your child arrives, showing due date, progress of the pregnancy, the pregnancy week, and a countdown until birth. It also shows information with a picture of the baby’s development. Most women use things like menstrual apps to show them when their menstrual period will start. Using an app to track ovulation days has become increasingly popular when the UK’s first “iPhone Baby” was conceived.

The UK couple says they had been trying for years to conceive. With a little help from an iPhone app, they now have their baby Lola.

Lena Bryce and her partner Dudley desperately wanted a child. Lena told The Sun “It began to weight heavily on us. We were considering IVF and adoption when Dudley gave me the iPhone for my birthday. I put in ‘get pregnant’ and downloaded five apps”. Lena Bryce downloaded the apps and said “The Free Menstrual Calendar was the easiest to use so I stuck with it, and within two months I was pregnant”.

The 30-year old said she had been trying to conceive with her husband Dudley for over four years. In the end, all it took as a simple download for Lena to get pregnant, making her the mother the Britain’s first iPhone Baby.



The Free Menstrual Calendar highlights your most fertile day in pink, shows when your menstrual period begins, and includes predictions to due dates.

The whole ordeal raises some questions. You may wonder whether or not is is necessary to download an iPhone application in order to become pregnant. A simple calculation on a calendar, ovulation test, or a trip to the doctor could provide the same information as the app. At the end of the day, however, the free application was much cheaper than a trip to the doctor, and most likely reduced the time spent traveling and waiting in a waiting room.

4 Reasons Why There Shouldn’t be a Male Birth Control Pill

There’s been ongoing interest over the possibility of a male contraceptive. Every few years a new discovery appears and it convinces us that we are closer to a birth control pill for men. For the first time, a safe, reversible, and effective male contraceptive has become a reality. Within the near future, several types of male birth control may become available to the average man. Soon men will be able to have the same options as women including a daily birth control pill, a patch or gel applied to the skin, and injection given every three months, or an implant under the skin every twelve months.

Seattle researchers claim that the availability of male contraceptives depends on how funding continues. The technology is available and it is understood how a hormonal male contraceptive will work.

Sure, this may be a great thing for women – we no longer have to remember the pill or suffer from awful side effects – but when you really think about it, a male contraceptive might not be such a good thing.

1. A new excuse to get you into bed – Some men might use male contraceptives as an excuse to get in your pants. The same men that lie about pulling out will lie about being on the pill.

2. Will they remember to take it – If you can’t trust your man to remember to pick up milk on the way home or buy condoms when you run out, how will you know if he remembered to take the pill?

3. An increase in STIs – Its been speculated that the approval of a male contraceptive might increase the spread of sexually transmitted infections. The pill won’t protect you from STIs – and if you’re both on the pill, why would you need a backup condom?

4. Decreased pregnancy rates – By putting men in control, couples may not be getting married having children as early in life. Women tend to want children more than men and they want to “move forward” in relationships. Men forget that the main reason for sex is procreation. Someone wrote in reply to the idea of a male birth control “[Male contraceptives] with the simultaneous invention of a time-travel machine, will result in 90% of us not being born”

There’s no telling whether or not men will even use a hormonal contraceptive, however its safe to say – don’t trust a man to do a woman’s job.

January – National Cervical Health Awareness Month

Every year 13,000 people are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States alone. Approximately 1 in 20,923 Americans are diagnosed with cervical cancer. It was estimated that in 2009 11,300 women would be diagnosed and 4,100 women would have died from cervical cancer in the United States. Thanks to current screening technology and practices there has been a considerable decline over the past 40 years in the number of cases of cervical cancer.

Cervical cancer is most commonly caused by Human Papillomavirus. HPV infections cause unusual changes to the cells of the cervix and may possibly lead to cervical cancer. Most HPV infections in young women are short-lasting and are not significant in the long run. 70 percent of infections have vanished in one year and 90 percent in two years. Only between five and ten percent of women diagnosed with HPV do not lost the infection and are vulnerable to cervical precancer, which may develop into cervical cancer. There is no way to know which people who are diagnosed with HPV develop any cancers (or other health problems) before the cancer begins developing. The process takes about 15 to 20 years dependent upon treatment and opportunities for detection. If cervical precancer is caught in its early stages it is most often easily cured. It is advised that women get regular screenings for cervical cancer. Screenings find early signs of diseases so that that issues can be addressed and solved before they progress into cancer.

HPV is the most common the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). It affects 50 to 85 percent of all sexually active people. HPV is transferred by any type of sexual contact. To lessen one’s chances of contracting HPV, decrease the number of sexual partners and use protection, such as condoms.

Gardasil is a widely available vaccination which presents protection from four types of HPV. These four particular types cause 60 to 70 percent of all problems related to either cervical cancer, or genital warts. The best age to get your 1st of 3 doses of the Gardasil vaccination is between the age of 11 and 12.

Is It Best For You To Get Rid Of Your Period?

Menstrual cycles are annoying and painful for most women. They cause mood swings, cramps, headaches, and are uncomfortable. Taking a birth control pill on a daily basis has halted woman’s menstrual cycles in many cases. For women to hear that with a simple pill they can stop their period is glorious! But is this pill safe? Is it as effective as we have been told? There are various pros and cons to be considered.

Pros
Women don’t need a period – The only reason known for a menstrual cycle, is for a woman to get pregnant. A period occurs to rid the body of the uterine lining which has been built up monthly to prepare the egg to be fertilized. When you are on a hormonal birth control pill the lining no longer builds up, thus there is nothing to expel and no reason for a period. A traditional 28 day pack of birth control pills have 7 placebo (sugar, no-hormone) pills. The lack of hormones is what causes the flow.

It is convenient – With monthly menstrual cycles many women undergo severe pain. The symptoms include headaches, cramps, mood swings, and various other painful and undesired feelings. When taking birth control pills and not having a period, there are no symptoms and no pain!

Skipping periods is another reproductive choice for women; the more choices we have, the better.

If you decide to use/continue using birth control pills as a way to stop your period, check with your insurance if they are covered in your plan. You will need a doctor’s written approval to prescribe you with BCP’s for excessive pain before your insurance will cover the pills.

Cons

It’s not philosophically right – Periods are not diseases. The pill is not an antibiotic. Doctors have prescribed continuous-hormone birth control pills for women who experience extreme pains, mood swings, and discomforts. Getting rid of one’s period would be just a matter of convenience. By expelling menstrual cycles it gives the image that women’s periods are something to be ashamed of.

Lybrel doesn’t work – A new release, the no-bleeding pill, Lybrel, might not work for all women. After a year of using Lybrel, a study showed that 40 percent of women on Lybrel still had spotting, and 20 percent bled enough to need tampons or pads.

May be unsafe – Although most professionals say BCP’s are safe for stopping your period, we have yet to know the long term effects of taking hormones nonstop might be.

How will you tell you are pregnant – Skipped periods are the most common way women discover they are pregnant. If you are not expecting your period, how will you know you are pregnant?

We do not know enough about using BCP’s to stop periods to consider it completely safe.

9 Important Birth Control Events of the Decade

In the last century we’ve witnessed extravagant improvements and findings to do with forms of contraception. However, in the last 10 years we’ve continued to experience many more changes to contraception as well. These changes include new forms of contraceptive, an abortion pill, changes in the prices and availability of a variety of birth control methods, and more.

1. In 2006 we were introduced to Seasonique, the extended cycle birth control pill. These pills were made available to women who want to reduce the number of times they had a bleeding period to four times a year. In 2007 Lybrel was approved and was designed to put a complete stop to periods all together. These pills improve the lifestyle of women who suffer from severe menstrual problems.

2. In 2002 a new form of sterilization for women was approved by the FDA. This procedure was designed for women who did not want to undergo surgery. Essure is a surgery-free contraceptive procedure. There are no incisions required – instead, small coil inserts are placed within the fallopian tubes. In 2009, the Essure surgery was publicized when Trista Sutter from the Bachelorette announced she was going to undergo the Essure procedure.

3. In 2007, the Family Planning services received an increase in their funding. This was to provide low income families with family planning services they would be able to afford. The group had been in need of an increase for many years. The 17 million dollar increase helped prevent about 20 million unintended pregnancies. 9 million of these prevented pregnancies would have otherwise been aborted.

4. President Obama was sworn into office on January 20th 2009. His promises for a woman’s right to choose her own reproductive freedoms helped him win the support of many Americans. Polls showed that 91% of Americans strongly favor the use of contraceptives. Obama declared that Roe.V Wade (support of abortion in the US)

“Not only protects womens health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters.”

5. In 2000, the state-of-the-art IUD (Intrauterine Device) Mirena was approved. Because of the IUD’s reputation, the hassle-free Mirena IUD is still continuing to pick up in popularity. Mirena offers women a new combination hormone birth control option. One IUD can prevent pregnancy for up to 5 years and is 99.9% effective making it one of the most effective reversible contraceptive options out there.

6. In 2007, it was reported that teen pregnancy rates were on the rise for the first time in 14 years. In addition, it was also noted that the number of teens with STDs rose to 1 in 4 American teenage women. Read more about teen pregnancy and STD rates here.

7. The “morning after” emergency contraceptive pill took a lot of heat throughout the decade. Even today there is still controversy surrounding the pill. When the Plan B pill became available in the US in 1999, it was not available over the counter or to those over 18 years old. In 2003, the FDA voted for Plan B to be sold without a prescription but it wasn’t until 2006 when the FDA finally approved the sale of Plan B over the counter to those over 18. Plan B was not available to women under 18 until March 2009.

8. In 2001 the Nuvaring was approved. Nuvaring is a flexible ring that releases hormones to protect against pregnancy and inserted into the vagina. The Nuvaring gave women another reversible birth control option and is a perfect alternative to birth control pills.

9. American’s were extra cautious in 2009 when they saw the reality of the recession. Many partners used more contraceptives that in any other year in order to not get pregnant. To them, a baby seemed like another expense. This inflated the birth control sales by up to 10% for OTC products, 6% for condom sales, and a whopping 50-75% increase in the number of vasectomies performed on American men.

Gardasil

Gardasil is a vaccine for girls and women ages 9 to 26 to protect against HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and HPV related diseases and infections. The Gardasil vaccine must be injected 3 times. The 1st injection followed by another, 2 months later, and a 3rd, 6 months after the 2nd. Gardasil is the only vaccine which helps protect against 4 types of HPV: types 6, 11, 16, and 18. It also aids in preventing cervical cancer, genital warts, vaginal cancers, and cervical dysplasia.

Gardasil is not recommended for pregnant women. As with any vaccine, Gardasil may not result in protection for all vaccine recipients. Gardasil is safe and efficient even when taken with most other medications, including analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics, and vitamin preparations.

In 2007 there was a conflict about making Gardasil mandatory for high school girls. There were many people opposing Gardasil and many who thought Gardasil was a fantastic idea. As for it being mandatory for high school girls, it didn’t do thorough.

The Gardasil vaccine, though mainly for girls, could be used for boys as well, to further prevent the spread of the virus.

HPV is incredibly common. An estimated 75% of sexually active Canadians will have HPV at least once in their lives. The age which HPV is most common for Canadian women is between 20 and 24.

There have been occasional overdoses in Gardasil, though it is not a serious danger it is important to contact a poison control centre if this occurs.

Abortion Rates Rise

In Canada in 1970, out of 100 live births, there were only 3 abortions, with a total of 11,152 abortions for the year. By 1988, there were 70,754 abortions, with 19.3 abortions of every 100 live births. In 2001 there were 106,418 abortions. Out of 100 live births, 31.9 were aborted. Times have changed. Some girls are now using repetitive abortions as a type of birth control.

1. Worldwide there are approximately 42 million abortions per year, and 115,000 per day.

2. In the United States alone there were 1,370,000 abortions in 1996. Currently there are 3,700 abortions a day in the US.

3. Teenagers have 20% of all abortions; girls under 15 obtain 1.2% of all abortions. That is 504,000 abortions per year (worldwide) by females under 15.

4. 1% of abortions are because of rape or incest. 93% of abortions are because of personal reasons.

5. 47 % of all abortions are executed on women who have had at least one abortion previously.

6. In England and Wales 74 teens had their third abortion in 2008. 15 other teens under 18 had previously had between 3 and 6 abortions.

7. 1,500 of 19,000 girls under 18 who had an abortion in 2008 had also had at least one earlier abortion. In at least one case a teen was having her 8th abortion.

Some girls are not using contraception services and instead are relying on abortions, which can be dangerous, as repeated abortions may result in severe negative results. Having several abortions may cause cervical stenosis, which increases the chances of endometriosis or infertility. It may also cause scarring in the uterus (Asherman’s syndrome) which may result in infertility and miscarriage. This doesn’t necessarily mean abortion is a extremely hazardous procedure, but it is not recommended to have several abortions.

“The Pill” – Birth Control Prompt on Your Phone

The iPhone is a fairly new and highly popular device with hundreds of applications being created for it daily. A new application just released is called “The Pill 1.0”. This application helps girls remember to take their birth control pill, which countless girls would forget otherwise. It has a cycle, which the girl chooses the starting day, and for 21 days each day it has a reminder which comes similar to a sms text in the morning for the girl to take her birth control pill. The next part of the cycle is a 7 day period with no reminder.

This new application was made by a French developer, Stephane Queraud. It is available in French, English, and Russian. A graph representation of the tablet is available with the application to show the girls how their real tablet should look. In the past, nearly every girl asked had forgotten to take her pill at least once. Now that problem is solved!

The Pill comes with other perks as well, such as a countdown showing when will be the next notification, a full graphical representation of the tablet, and advice in case you forget your pill and need to know what to do.
The Pill is available on iPhones worldwide. It is only $0.99 US on the iPhone app store in the medicine subcategory.

Teens Are Not Getting “The Talk”

Filed under: sex ed,sex education,sex talk,Uncategorized — Candace @ 5:44 pm

Women looking at birth controlMost girls have had “The Talk” by the time they reach their mid-teens. “The Talk” that parents dread and avoid: the talk about sex. Unfortunately boys are less likely to get this talk than girls are.

There was a recent survey with surprising results concerning a lack of sexual education given to teens.

  • Only 25 percent of teen (ages 13 to 17) girls say they have yet to receive a talk about resisting pressure to have sex.
  • Almost two thirds of teen boys had never been talked about the importance of condoms before they had intercourse.
  • Over 50 percent of teens said they had masturbated before receiving a talk from their parents about sex.
  • Approximately 40 percent of girls had intercourse before talking about birth control with their parents.
  • Just under 50 percent of all high school students report they have had sexual intercourse.
  • Over 40 percent of teenagers in a recent survey had intercourse before receiving an in depth talk about STD’s and other important issues. Teens are not getting the information they should have to protect themselves.

Although it is difficult to talk to your teen about these issues, and even embarrassing, it is important for their future decisions to have this knowledge. You do not have to tell your child everything at once, but slowly give them information and advice as they grow and mature. Another issue with having

“The Talk” is that children are told, since they are young, not to ask about sex. Parents say things like
“You’re too young now, I’ll tell you when you’re older.” Kids learn soon not to ask these questions. Lastly, don’t be afraid to tell your teens that you are embarrassed. The children are also embarrassed and admitting it will help bond and have a better conversation.

One third of ninth graders have had intercourse. This is a disturbing fact, but talking to your kids and informing them, girls and boys alike, at a young age, is helpful and may prevent later mistakes.

Birth Control Ring: Introduced in India

India’s birth control plan is beginning to pick up. With a population of 684 million and counting, all methods of birth control are happily accepted. It New Delhi on November 18th, a US based pharmaceutical company in Oregon launched a birth control ring that apparently has no side effects.

Nuvaring is popular form of birth control in North America and Europe that has recently been introduced in India as an easy method of birth control. Nuvaring is a transparent flexible ring that contains hormones which enter the blood stream daily inhibiting ovulation. The ring is a simple and effective reversible birth control procedure because unlike the pill where you take one everyday, it only requires that you insert the ring once a week for three weeks of the month.

Managing director of Organon K.G Ananthakrishnan says that only 20% of women use contraceptives in India. He suggests that the ring is a good idea because it does not have any side effects and will not obstruct other daily activities.

Birth Control: A Timeline

4th Century A.D – Aristotle gave advice on how to prevent pregnancy. He told women to use olive oil, lead ointment, or frankincense oil as a spermicide – Needless to say, his intentions were good but his methods were flawed.

The Greeks claimed that by applying pressure to the uterus by pushing on a woman’s abdomen will force sperm out of her vagina. Although it sounds ridiculous, they had to start somewhere.

1400’s – the Chastity belt was invented. Today they may be viewed as a cruel violation of human rights, however in the 15th century Chastity belts were a form of teaching abstinence. Chastity belts were created to make it physically impossible for a woman to have sex or masturbate. They were often made of steel, locked shut with a padlock, and only had small openings for excretion. These belts were made in only one size – so larger women were forced to endure the pain of an ill-fitted device.

1700’s – 1800’s – The first pregnancy preventing condom was used by Giacoma Girolamo Casaova. Funny enough he referred to condoms as “english riding coats”. In the 19th century, condoms were made of animal gut and were packaged in paper envelopes. Although the product was somewhat formal (being packaged and all), its role as contraception was not very effective.

1844 – American Charles Goodyear invented the vulcanization of rubber. This was a process that stopped rubber from becoming sticky. Mass production of condoms began shortly after he patented his finding.

1900’s – Based on early Egyptian prototypes, in the early 20th Century people were using sponges with strings attached for removal as contraceptive devices. Often these sponges were dipped in vinegar or lemon juice which would act as a spermicide. The method seemed plausible, however it was not necessarily effective or safe. Today, there are safe synthetic sponges which are sterile and coated with chemical spermicide.

1930’s – When the Great Depression hit, many couples could not afford to support children. During this time, new methods of birth control were introduced. The douching method was introduced (like Aristotle’s olive oil technique) however this time it was advertised as “Lysol Douching”. Yes – Lysol surface cleaner was used as a vaginal spermicide for a short time, however when reports started piling in about irritations and vaginal scalding, the method slowly lost popularity. So, a proto-intrauterine device was created. The IUD’s in the 1930’s consisted or something like a metal rod attached to a circular object such as a button. Needless to say, these early attempts often resulted in irritation and severe uterine infections. Oops.

1950’s – The first Birth Control Pill (Envoid) was originally created to promote fertility and reduce menstrual symptoms in women. It was approved by the FDA in 1957 and began gaining popularity, however, around that time there were many complaints by Envoid users about increased menstrual problems. The pill was re-introduced to the FDA four years later as an oral contraceptive. By 1964 the pill was a huge success and became America’s number one type of birth control.

1990’s – In 1992 Depo-Provera was approved by the FDA. This was the first hormonal injection that was used to prevent pregnancy.

Today – Today, there are many forms of safe and efficient birth control. There are shots, patches, rings, IUD’s and Pills available in all different forms that are up to 99% effective.

Could The Pill Be To Blame For The Jonas Brothers Fame?


Could the fame of one of the most popular musical acts, be the result of birth control? Yes, I am talking about the Jonas Brothers. I’ve always wondered how they became so popular. But now science, my good old friend, may have found the answer. Birth control.

A recent study came up with the findings that women are attracted to certain types of men at different times of the month. During ovulation, the period where women are most fertile, women find masculine men more attractive. While during the other part of the month the more feminine men will have an advantage. This is why they believe that macho guys like Sean Connery (think Bond here) aren’t perceived as the more attractive of the two types of males. It also explains how in only a generation the more feminine, non-alpha male has now suddenly become the most desired trait a woman is looking for.

But how does birth control change all of this? Good question. Well according to the research, because birth control stops ovulation, women who take the pill don’t actually experience that point in the month where they are attracted to the manly type of men. Instead they are constantly within that phase of finding feminine guys who they think will be better at caring for children attractive.

However, the survey also flipped views and looked at women from the perspective of the males. The report showed that men find women more attractive when they are ovulating. Bad news for women on the pill is, they don’t ovulate and are often found less attractive to men. An experiment was conducted featuring lap dancers. Dancers that were ovulating made $20 more and hour in tips than women who weren’t ovulating.

Oral Contraceptives: 21/7, 24/4 or Continuous use?

18% of women ages 15-49 use a combined oral contraceptive (COC). Of all Canadian women who use a form of birth control, 32% chose COCs as their primary form of contraception. Birth control pills were first made to be taken for 21 days before a seven day hormone-free period. Today, this 21/7 regimen is the standard dosing regimen for oral contraceptives, however there is also a newer 24/4 regimen that may have even more benefits than the standard dose of 21/7.

Many of the Canadian women taking COCs today still follow the 21/7 dose, however it is not necessary. There are many women who choose to forgo their menstrual period all together by using contraceptives continuously without a hormone free interval. All available contraceptives (oral, trans-dermal, vaginal) can be used in a continuous regimen therefore eliminating a bleeding period. This contraceptive method is becoming popular among Canadian women who are comfortable with eliminating their menstrual period.

90% of all menstruating women have reported some form of premenstrual symptoms. 30% of these women have been diagnosed with PMS, and 8% have been diagnosed with an extreme form of PMS called premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Women taking COCs that contain progestin drospirenone, have noticed relief in minor PMS symptoms including physical and emotional PMS symptoms. COCS have even been successful in alleviating symptoms of severe PMS and PMDD in some women.

There are a number of benefits that the continuous/extended COC use has shown. Some of these benefits include the lessening of menstrual pain, headaches, bloating and swelling, acne, breast tenderness, and shorter periods. Continuous use, however, may cause spotting or unscheduled bleeding.

The benefits of the new 24/4 regimen include a more efficient suppressing of ovarian activity, that those who take a 21/7 hormone break increase their endogenous hormone levels which making ovulation more likely, therefore giving them a higher risk of becoming pregnant and developing ovarian cysts than women who use the 24/4 regimen. The 24/4 regimen prevents hormonal fluctuations helping to improve the quality of life for its users.Types of birth control pills and their dosage:

21/7 Regimen: Alesse, Yasmin, Cyclen

24/4 Regimen: Yaz, Loestrin 24 Fe

Extended Regimen: Seasonique

5 Ways to Save Money on Birth Control

Many American women are unable to afford birth control during these harsh economic times. It’s been reported that women are trying harder not to get pregnant because they can’t afford to have a child. Some are trying to save money by skipping the pill or going off the pill for several months in order to save money.

Ask for Generic

Switching from a name brand birth control pill to a generic pill can help you save money. Ask your doctor to write down the generic birth control pill on your prescription.

Subsidized birth control

Find out if you qualify for subsidized birth control. Your local health department or family planning clinic may offer discount birth control to low income families.

Ask for help from your partner

This is an option for single women who don’t have combined incomes with their partners. Why shouldn’t the guy help pay for birth control? He’s benefitting from it too – and he’ll be in deeper financial problems if you become pregnant.

Short term solution

If you are strapped for cash but need to pick up your prescription, see your doctor and ask if they have any samples they could give you. Often a clinic will receive birth control samples that they will be able to give you if they understand your situation.



Insurance Plan

Your insurance plan may cover certain types of birth control like the IUD or surgical sterilization. Check your insurance plan and consult your doctor to see what will work best for you.

India’s New Birth Control: Cash Incentives

India’s current population is over 1.2 billion, and it is expected that it will reach 1.53 billion by the year 2050, exceeding China’s population and becoming the world’s most populous nation.

The National Rural Health mission is continuously coming up with new ways to control the population growth. The newest form of birth control in India isn’t the Pill or a television – but money. The National Rural Health mission is granting couples who agree to delay having a child for a year 5,000 Rupees (125 USD). Some couples are agreeing to delay having a child for two years, and earning an extra 2,500 Rupees (50 USD). Considering that 70 Rupees a day is a good wage in India’s rural areas, many couples are welcoming the government’s offer.

Half the population in India is under the age of 25, and 27 million babies are born each year.

President of the Mission for Population Control says “India should aim for zero population growth – We feel that two children is a necessity, but a third is not required. It is better for families to control their family size.”

Common Birth Control Side Effects

When taking hormone based birth control, you will likely be faced with several side effects as a result of your body’s way of adapting to the hormones. With birth control, the side effects usually go away after 3 months of use, so as long as you can trek through the rough patch, you will reap the benefits of birth control.

Headaches, dizziness, and breast tenderness are common side effects for women taking hormonal birth control. The best way to handle these symptoms is to take a couple of Advil, lie down, and drink a glass of water if the symptoms become unbearable.
Nausea is a possible side effect of birth control. This symptom usually goes away after a couple months of use.

Spotting is when you have breakthrough bleeding between periods that is usually very light. The trouble with spotting is that is is unpredictable. Try taking the pill at the same time everyday in order to prevent spotting. For those who have spotting while using a ring or IUD, try a different method of birth control. The spotting will stop when your body becomes used to the changes.

Mood swings are the utmost common side effects of using birth control. Because your body is taking in more female hormones, you may find yourself in a constant emotional state. For many women, this symptom is prominent in the first few months of taking birth control. After three months it becomes less noticeable.

If you are experiencing extreme side effects, try switching methods or pills. Remember that almost all side effects will die away after several months of using birth control.

Beware of Dangerous Deodorant!

Filed under: breast cancer,chemicals,cosmetics,deodorant,parabens,Uncategorized — Amanda @ 10:51 am

Scientists from the UK have found that certain chemicals in underarm deodorants have been found in samples of breast tumours. Parabens are harmful chemicals that can be found in some cosmetic products such as lip gloss, eye makeup, hair products, moisturizers, and deodorants.

Parabens are capable of impersonating the female hormone estrogen, which plays a role in breast development, and the development of breast cancers. The harmful preservatives can be found in some foods as well.

The Parabens found in the tumours indicate that they were applied to the skin by something such as an underarm deodorant. Researchers expected the tumours to develop evenly throughout areas of the breast; however it was found that 60 percent of all breast tumours occurred in the upper outer quadrant of the breast – closest to the underarms.

The publisher of the research Phillip Harvey said “From this research, it is not possible to say whether or not parabens caused these tumours, but they may certainly be associated with the overall rise in breast cancer cases.”

Although most deodorants no longer contain Paraben chemicals, it is important to consider the preservatives and chemicals that we expose our bodies to on a regular basis. There are many organic and natural products on the market that are safer and better for your body.
