BREAST HEALTH


Every woman over the age of 40 is recommended to schedule annual mammograms and have monthly breast self-exam to decrease the chance of death by breast cancer. To learn more about breast cancer, visit the American Cancer Society.


MENOPAUSE


While for most women menopause occurs at mid-life – between the ages of 40 and 60 – menopause may occur earlier for women with functional disorders affecting their reproductive system or for women who have had their ovaries surgically removed. In any case, menopause is a stage in life that all women will eventually experience. While every woman will experience menopause differently, when struggles arise the doctors and staff at Coastal Bend Women’s Center are here to help.


CONTRACEPTION CONFUSION


Many of us find ourselves overwhelmed when it comes to choosing a form of birth control. Pills, patches, condoms, cervical caps, rings, sponges, spermicides...AHH! So many to choose from! To choose the method that best suits your needs, it’s best to look into the pros and cons of each. Some contraceptive methods help to protect from sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) and some only help to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Birth Control methods may keep eggs from being released on a monthly basis, prevent sperm from ever reaching the egg, change the lining of the uterus, or kill sperm. If the idea of taking a daily form of birth control doesn’t excite you, you may consider a once a month option, such as NuvaRing.

When it comes to birth control methods, all of them have their ups and downs. Birth control pills, patches, the vaginal ring, cervical cap, injection, and diaphragm are recommended for those who need a long-acting method of control. If you are concerned about more than just pregnancy, condoms protect against pregnancy and STD’s. Women who don’t want to have a baby in the next 5-10 years may want to consider an IUD. Those who want an easily reversible form of protection, may consider the sponge. Lastly, those who don't want children or are done having children, may consider either male or female sterilization.

Remember that some methods are more effective than others, convenience differs, price differs, health benefits and side-effects are also inclusive of some options. Some are available over the counter, others require a visit with your doctor or nurse. Some women may have trouble inserting one method and some methods are to be used in conjunction with another. Speak to your doctor to help discover what may work best for you.
