(http://ow.ly/jYtY30mGUmo)

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that can vary in size from quite small to large masses. Symptoms include extended menstrual periods (lasting more than a week), frequent urination, backache or leg pain, or heavy menstrual bleeding. Visit your doctor if you're experiencing any of these symptoms or pelvic pain that doesn't go away.

What Is Recovery Following A Hysterectomy Like?
(http://ow.ly/RPgZ30mz3CL)

Once your hysterectomy is complete, you'll stay in the hospital for at least one night for monitoring. This ensures you don't run into any complications. Once you're sent home, you'll be given a list of recovery instructions to follow carefully. It's important that you take these instructions seriously; this means avoiding lifting as well as intense physical activity. Caring for your wounds, walking regularly, and eating a healthy, well-balanced diet are all practices that will contribute to a quick, complication-free recovery.

(http://ow.ly/r7Il30mz3CC)

Yes. If you exercised prior to your pregnancy, you should have no problem continuing with physical activity. That being said, you'll want to cut back on the intensity level of your exercises and focus on low-impact aerobics instead. The gynecologists at GYN-CARE Women's Healthcare Center can help you determine how much exercise you're capable as well as what type of exercise will best meet your needs. Call them today to request an appointment.

(http://ow.ly/XBUN30mz3CA)

Wash your hands—a message worth repeating. Contaminated surfaces are everywhere: the grocery store, door knobs, bathrooms, work. This is why it's important to make hand washing a common habit throughout your day. It's also important to make sure you are using warm water and to lather your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds if you want to ensure you are doing a good job.

What Is A Pap Test?
(http://ow.ly/C7fu30mz3Cz)

A Pap test is a preventive health screening used to determine a woman's risk of cervical cancer. A Pap test is performed in-office; during this exam, your doctor takes a swab and carefully collects a sample of cells from the surface of your cervix. These cells are then sent to a laboratory for further testing. Since its invention, the Pap test has saved millions of lives.
