Everything You Need to Know About Nexplanon
(http://ow.ly/y8eE30mXP2C)

The Nexplanon® implant is one of the most effective forms of birth control on the market today. The implant, similar in size to a matchstick, is implanted in the upper arm during a short procedure and releases pregnancy-preventing hormones for several years.

The Nexplanon implant is ideal for women who want peace of mind and a “get it and forget it” birth control. It works by inhibiting ovulation while simultaneously thickening cervical mucus, making it virtually impossible for a sperm to reach an egg for fertilization.

It's always good to remember that prevention is better than a cure. To stay in tiptop health, here are three things you should regularly get:

• Vaccinations: especially crucial for children and young adults who have yet to develop their immune system;
• Check-ups: helps prevent the formation, or further worsening of illnesses;
• Routine Tests and Exams: particularly critical for middle-aged and elderly patients who have weakened immunization to diseases.

The Essential Facts About HPV
(http://ow.ly/zcoK30mXP2B)

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases among sexually active adults in the United States. One of the reasons why it is so widespread is because people can be carriers for years and not experience any symptoms, unwittingly passing it to future sexual partners.

HPV care is especially important for women because it can cause abnormal cell growths that make gradually develop into a type of cancer. This is one of the reasons why gynecologists urge women to receive regular Pap smears to screen for these kinds of issues.

What Do Uterine Fibroids Mean For Your Health?
(http://ow.ly/eOlx30mXP2A)

Uterine fibroids are common in women, especially those in their 30s and 40s. These normally benign (meaning non-cancerous) lumps aren't necessarily life-threatening, but there is plenty they can do to lower your quality of life if left untreated.

Uterine fibroids are known to cause heavy bleeding and longer periods lasting seven days or more, bloating or fullness in the belly, pain in the lower abdomen and pelvis, constipation, and possibly even infertility. A myomectomy can be performed to remove fibroids and, in many cases, preserve your ability to have a child in the future.

Everything You Need to Know About Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
(http://ow.ly/nSDK30mXP2z)

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that causes a woman's hormones to be thrown out of balance. Although there is much to understand about this condition, women with PCOS have higher-than-normal levels of male sex hormones known as androgens, which can cause a variety of problems.

Common symptoms of PCOS include acne, weight gain, extra hair growth on the body (hirsutism), thinning hair on the head, irregular periods, and potentially even fertility problems. A healthy diet and regular exercise can help correct many issues associated with PCOS.

Understanding the Implications of an Ectopic Pregnancy
(http://ow.ly/jvak30mXP2y)

An ectopic pregnancy is a serious medical issues; it's when the fertilized egg attaches itself in a place other than inside the uterus. In most cases, this occurs in the Fallopian tube, but it can also occur in other places like the cervix, ovary, the inner wall of the uterus, or the abdomen.

Some women may not know they have an ectopic pregnancy until it begins to cause symptoms several weeks later — this may include severe abdominal and/or pelvic pain, unusual bleeding, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, and dizziness or fainting.
