What You Need to Know About Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
(http://ow.ly/5keJ30mVZlL)

Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is a hormonal disorder that can affect anyone with a uterus of reproductive age. It can cause very long, painful, and irregular periods, increased facial or body hair, and poor ovarian function. These symptoms tend to be worse in obese individuals. Fortunately, effective treatment options are available.

Abdominal Obesity and Your Health
(http://ow.ly/ItUU30mVZlK)

One way to determine whether you have abdominal obesity is by measuring your waist to hip ratio. A waist over 35-40 inches is considered high risk. The fat that accumulates in the belly region can be particularly problematic from a health standpoint, so making efforts to slim down can be very important. Minimizing excess belly fat can help lower your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer.

Is Hormonal Contraception an Effective Acne Treatment?
(http://ow.ly/e56v30mVZlJ)

If you have acne-prone skin, certain types of birth control pills might help alleviate your symptoms. All combination OC pills can potentially treat acne because they lower the levels of free androgen in your body, and androgen plays a significant role in symptoms such as pimples. The patch may help for similar reasons.

Do I Have Uterine Fibroids?
(http://ow.ly/Q1py30mVZlG)

You can have uterine fibroids for years without realizing because they don’t always cause noticeable symptoms. When they do cause symptoms, pelvic pain is one of the most common. Otherwise, your doctor may discover signs of the cysts during a routine pelvic exam. If so, additional tests may be ordered. An ultrasound is often the first of such tests. If the results aren’t definitive, an MRI scan can help provide more detailed images.

Not Cool vs. COOL Ways to Lose Stubborn Belly Fat
(http://ow.ly/gUhp30mVZlF)

There are safe, effective ways to do away with stubborn belly fat and not so safe or effective methods. Through their research and interviews, folks at CoolSculpting discovered that many people have gone to extreme lengths to slim down their midsection. Fad diets and exercising while wearing tight plastic aren’t advisable from wellness or aesthetic standpoint. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is FDA-cleared for fat reduction.
