Which Type of Contraception is Best For You?
Each one has its pros and cons, but all are effective in preventing pregnancy.
The Pill
It is the most popular type of contraception. It is highly effective in preventing pregnancy. Since its introduction many years ago, more women have used the pill than any other birth control method.
Side effects include mood changes, headaches, nausea, weight gain and trouble with normal periods. Depo-Provera
Depo-Provera is an injection of hormones that prevent pregnancy for 3 months. Like the pill, it is known to cause some side effects as well.
The Female Condom
The female condom is a natural way to prevent pregnancy. You can also try the pill or Depo-Provera and see if there is any adverse reaction. Whichever method you choose, be sure to use your contraception correctly, and don't let your pregnancy be an accident.

Infertility; is IVF Really Necessary?

For most couples the thought of infertility treatment means one thing, IVF (in-vitro fertilisation). Today the pendulum has swung too far in the opposite direction and infertility treatment has become synonymous with IVF.
In fact for most patients IVF should not be the first treatment of choice.
The average success rate for IVF treatment in the UK is 19.5%. In other words 80% of all IVF treatments fail to produce a baby. When being offered medical treatment most people are optimistic, feeling it will work for them, unfortunately with IVF the odds are against this.

Every Woman Should Ask Her Gynecologist Questions Before Surgery

Gynecology means the science of women. Common procedures performed by gynecologists include tubal ligation, laparoscopy, hysterectomy, and removal of ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids.
Uterine fibroids
Women may have many questions to ask their gynecologists before deciding on surgery or other treatments. With uterine fibroids, for example, women have treatment options. Tubal ligation
A tubal ligation is a surgical procedure that renders a woman sterile, thereby preventing pregnancy. Most women considering tubal ligation have many questions to ask their gynecologists before surgery.
Ovarian cysts
Many ovarian cysts do not cause symptoms and may not require treatment. Doctors may recommend surgery for postmenopausal women who have painful cysts that don't go disappear. Surgical options for ovarian cysts include laparoscopy and laparotomy. Most ovarian cysts, however, are not cancerous and go away without treatment.
Gynecologists also treat infertility. Advances in fertility treatments provide increasing options; there are many questions to ask before deciding on infertility treatment.
