What is Breast Enlargement About

Published / by mimin

Breasts are part of feminine beauty, but unfortunately not all women have breast that match up to their expectations. The breasts affect overall appearance, shape and personality of a woman and when they are too small they may lead to psychological issues in the woman. Breast augmentation surgeries offer solutions by increasing the size of the breasts and making them shapely for desired attractive curves. Apart from naturally small breasts, breastfeeding and aging can affect that appearance of the breasts necessitating breast enlargement or enhancement for those who feel a need for the same.

The enlargement comes with different surgery options, especially as far as the shape and size. Implants are used for this purpose, so that at the end of the procedure you will have the breast size that you have always wanted. But there is always an importance of finding out as much as you can about the enlargement so you can make all the right choices.

1. Implant types – Silicone and saline implants are the two types used in the breast augmentation procedures today. Saline implants can be filled when replaced making it easy to enlarge or reduce but they can leave the skin looking rippled. Silicones are more preferred because they look and feel real but they have platinum that may be harmful in rupture cases. Discuss the pros and cons of each with your surgeon before you make a decision.

2. The cost – Breast augmentation procedures are relatively pricey, especially considering that most insurance companies and agencies have not covered for the surgeries unless in the case of mastectomies. You will need regular MRIs to ensure that silicone implants are not leaky and you may require further surgeries if the implants needs replacements. The costs can therefore be pretty high with the implants and you should be prepared financially when you decide to have a boob job done.

3. The risks – The enlargement can definitely improve your appearance and make you most self-confident but you should be aware of the risks involved. Skin death, chronic pain, numbness, breakage, leakage and infections are some of the risks that are associated with breast implants. In rare causes some women have actually reported to have sloshing sound with their hearing especially with filled implants. Saline implants, on the other hand can grow mold and bacteria on the sites. You therefore should only have the surgery done by a qualified and experienced surgeon to reduce the risks.

4. Sizes – The implants come in a wide range of sizes and you can easily achieve the cup size that you have always wanted. Your weight and height should however be the guides to finding the right size for you. Choosing the right size is a simple way of keeping regrets at bay later.

5. Replacements and placements – The one good thing about breast implants is that they do not come with an expiration date; they only need replacement in case they break. It may be years before you need replacement surgery or you may never need another surgery. When it comes to placement, the implants can be under the chest muscle. This placement reduces edge showing, but it takes longer recovery. The other placement option is under breast tissues which does not guarantee unnoticeable edges, but the recovery is much faster.

Genital care is important especially for women not only for personal hygiene but also for overall health. Infections, foul odor and other genital problems can be avoided with proper genital care. There are certain measures to be observed to keep a healthy vagina. So how to keep a healthy vagina? Here are some helpful tips:

Practice good vaginal hygiene. The vaginal area is a sensitive area so it is important to practice good vaginal hygiene to keep a healthy vagina. Make it a habit to wipe from front to back after bowel movement to avoid rubbing dirt on the vaginal area. Frequently change sanitary pads when you have monthly period. Always wear clean underwear to keep the vagina clean and fresh. Plain unscented soap and water are enough to clean the vagina regularly because the vagina has the ability to clean itself. Remove or keep your pubic hair short to keep the vaginal area clean.

Keep the normal pH of the vagina. To keep a healthy vagina, its normal pH should be maintained. The natural acidic environment of the vagina and the presence of beneficial bacteria should not be disturbed to keep its natural pH and to keep it healthy and be able to fight off infections. Douching and the use of scented feminine wash, harsh soaps or deodorants are common practices that can disturb or alter the natural pH of the vagina. The vagina has the ability to clean itself so warm water is enough to wash the area. If you are using these feminine products to eliminate vaginal odor, it is best to consult your doctor if you have disturbing vaginal odor than use harsh feminine products. The use of antibiotics can also disturb the bacterial and pH balance of the vagina. Make sure to talk to your doctor or gynecologist about this to lessen the effect of antibiotics on your vaginal health. Imbalance or disturbed pH can lead to a number of vaginal problems like itching, inflammation and infections like a yeast infection.

Eat healthy diet. To keep a healthy vagina, you should eat a healthy diet. A healthy diet can help prevent vaginal infections, UTIs or other reproductive system problems. There are foods known to help prevent infections like yogurt and cranberry. Garlic is known to be antimicrobial and soy products like tofu can help keep the vagina lubricated. Drinking enough water to hydrate yourself is also good for your vaginal health. Drinking water can help keep your vagina naturally lubricated and can help you urinate regularly preventing UTIs. Regulate your sugar intake to keep your blood sugar on its normal level because sugary diet can lead to many health problems including yeast infections. Yeast feeds on sugar so high consumption of sugar could lead to yeast infections.

Practice safe sex. It is a must for your partner to use condoms to avoid the risk of sexually transmitted diseases and other genital problems. It is better to be safe than sorry. Changing condoms is also necessary if your partner want to go from anal to vaginal. Using artificial lubricant may be necessary if the vagina is unable to provide enough lubrication during intercourse but avoid using petroleum-based or oil-based artificial lubricant because they might cause infections.

Regularly visit your gynecologist. To keep a healthy vagina, you need professional help and advice. It is important to have regular check-ups and gynecological exams like Pap smears and cervical screening for preventive care. Early detection of any vaginal or reproductive problem is important to keep a healthy vagina. It is also important to address infections once symptoms occur by visiting your doctor to avoid more serious genital or reproductive system problems.

Avoid clothing and fabrics that encourage sweating. To keep a healthy vagina, it is important to keep the vaginal area dry. Yeast or Candida thrives on moist and warm areas like the vagina and this can lead to infections. Wear breathable clothing and use underwear made from cotton because it absorbs moisture and allows air to circulate. Wearing tight pants and panty hose can also encourage sweating so as much as possible avoid them.

With proper care, you can keep a healthy vagina. A healthy and happy vagina means a healthier and happier life.


Reason You Need Exercise During Pregnant

Published / by mimin

It is commonly known that exercise is beneficial to the health and wellbeing of individuals, but this article will focus on the benefits of exercise for expecting mothers and their babies. I have often heard people say that they are unable to lose weight or have high blood pressure due to genetics and their family history. Poor eating and lifestyle habits have been attributed to higher birth weights and greater risks of developing health issues and diseases such as obesity. On the other hand, the lack of proper nutrient dense diets by expecting mothers can result in underweight births and cause for a number of other issues including cardiovascular and dysfunctional diseases. It is important to understand the significance of the actions a mother takes during her pregnancy and how they can both positively and negatively affect the baby.

Physical exercise during pregnancy will not only help assure the health of the baby, but it will also help rid of the baby fat left over after delivery on the mother. Many local gyms and health clubs have programs designed for expecting mothers, that involve low intensity and low impact exercises. Water aerobics and yoga are commonly used by this population and for a good reason. Pelvic floor exercises are also good for pregnant women and doing them will lower the risk of experiencing incontinence after having the baby.

Other exercises that will benefit both parties during pregnancy include stationary biking, brisk walking, and light strength training. Participating in exercise during pregnancy will also help with the side effects of being pregnant. This includes helping with mood swings, self-esteem, increased energy, relieving stress and anxiety, and lowering the risk of depression. Another health benefit not mentioned above is the lowering of gestational diabetes risk. Up to 18% of expecting mothers experience this form of diabetes due to the change in hormonal levels. Exercise helps control hormones and maintain homeostasis in the body.

Below is a list of other health benefits of exercise during pregnancy:

· Improves Circulation (Reduces swelling, Cramps, and Varicose Veins)

· Improves Sleep

· Shorter labor

· Less prone to morning sickness

· Social support from other expecting mothers

There are many benefits to exercise for all individuals both pregnant and non-pregnant. These listed above are stated to inspire those who may not have considered pregnancy exercise, to do so. The benefits are overwhelming and your child will be much healthier because of your actions. We are often told and reminded what not to do during exercise but not so often told what we can do to improve and lower risks during pregnancy. Check with your local health club and see what programs they have to offer for expecting mothers and those planning to be in the near future.


All About Hormonal Imbalance

Published / by mimin

Chemicals like estrogen and testosterone have a profound effect on human behavior and moods. Particularly around puberty and throughout the teenage years, changes in body chemistry can impact the way adolescents interact with peers, contributing to insecurity, aggression, and romantic attraction. The human brain is still influenced by many of the same chemicals throughout adulthood, but maturity and a modicum of consideration can help prevent those naturally occurring chemicals from negatively affecting relationships.

The most well-known cause of hormonal imbalance and fluctuation is the premenstrual syndrome or PMS. Occurring between a woman’s ovulation and her period, PMS tends to be portrayed in entertainment media as a period of erratic behavior and unpredictable mood swings. Groups of males may be quick to dismiss a woman’s emotional behavior as connected to body chemistry. As anyone who has had a girlfriend can attest, PMS is not a laughing matter when your partner is awaiting the monthly visit from “Aunt Flo.” To preserve your relationship, avoid the following questions when you think your girlfriend is going through a period of hormonal imbalance.

Is it that time of the month?

Some questions should never be asked directly. Asking whether it’s “that time of the month” is particularly dangerous when it interrupts an emotional outburst or otherwise tense conversation. Even if the emotional outburst is fueled by her monthly cycle, the question completely sidesteps any attempt to address the actual topic of conversation. If she’s running at you with a knife because the toilet seat was left up for the hundredth time, it’s possible that she cares a lot about the courtesy of putting down the toilet seat.

Aren’t you a little young for menopause?

Similar to the idea of questions that shouldn’t be asked directly, many successful boyfriends find it’s best to avoid talking about aging, particularly how it might affect your girlfriend’s body. Women are bombarded by advertisements for anti-aging treatments and procedures. With parents and grandparents eager to have more descendants to coddle, most young women are very aware of the limited time their bodies allow for childbirth. There’s something to be said for dark humor that allows everyone to make light of their own mortality. However, men are not in a position to commiserate about the injustice of menopause because they can often to continue to sire children well into their awkwardly geriatric years.

Why can’t you be more like one of the guys?

To borrow a turn of phrase from the elementary school playground, “if you love the guys so much, why don’t you marry them?” Men and women may find it easier to understand and relate to their long-term friends. Dealing with someone of the opposite gender is one of the biggest challenges of a monogamous heterosexual relationship. The potential for hormonal imbalance is just one of many mysterious factors that lead to miscommunication, misunderstanding, and conflict in a relationship. If the challenge of dealing with the opposite sex is not worthwhile, then we are fortunate to live in an era where you can choose to date “one of the guys” instead.

Ultimately, every individual is different, and most people change over time. Avoiding asinine questions is one way to protect your relationship from being negatively affected by hormonal imbalance.
