Multivitamins and Pregnancy in the News

The main message about taking multivitamins during pregnancy to come out of this study is that although many women feel as though it could help them, especially if they’re having difficulty getting a balanced diet, some multivitamin supplements could actually be harmful to the baby. This is because some multivitamin supplements aren’t made specifically for pregnant women and therefore could contain high levels of vitamins such as vitamin A (also known as retinol). Too much vitamin A during pregnancy could harm your unborn baby and this is why mums-to-be are advised not to eat liver products for example, such as pâté, or even fish liver oil because these are very high in vitamin A.

Endometrial Hyperplasia and the Risks of Leaving it Untreated

This is a condition where there is an overgrowth of the cells that line the womb that causes the womb to thicken.

The danger of endometrial hyperplasia for some women is that it can develop into one of the most common gynaecological cancers, womb cancer. Figures quoted put the number of women diagnosed with this kind of cancer at 8,500 per year, with the number of women with endometrial hyperplasia thought to be around 25,000.

Surgery To Correct Prolapse

Weakening of the tissues surrounding the womb / uterus, the rectum or the bladder can lead to these organs slipping down and protruding into vagina, and this is commonly known as a prolapse. It is essentially a hernia in the vagina; it is normally the rectum which is affected.
There are however different types of prolapse depending on which of the pelvic organs is involved e.g. a uterine prolapse, an enterocele prolapse etc..

PMS: Not a Psychiatric Condition But An Ovarian Cyclical Syndrome

If you suffer from some of the more pronounced symptoms of PMS there is one important fact to remember, and that is that the pathology of PMS is clearly linked to ovulation and ovarian activity – it is an ovarian cyclical syndrome. This means that the suppression of ovulation should be, and IS an effective treatment for this condition.

Polycystic Ovaries & Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

The number of women who are being (correctly) diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) appears to me to be on the increase. This is likely to be due to factors such as the obesity epidemic and also the change in the UK population dynamics. The UK population for example now includes more women from South Asia and the Middle East who are at risk of developing this disease.

A Thorough Health Check Designed For Women


For many women today it’s often the case that they lead very busy lives, and the only time they are really able to speak to a medical professional about any aspect of their health is when they visit their doctor or for example when they have their smear test. It is however unlikely that a woman will be able to talk over all of her medical concerns with her doctor within the time allocated for a normal appointment, and it may have been some time since her last smear test. It may also be the case that she has concerns or questions relating to that last smear test and these have left a nagging worry in the back of her mind.

As you read this you may have some health concerns of your own that you would like to opportunity to talk to a medical professional about, preferably to a specialist in women’s health.
