Hormone replacement may help: You may benefit from hormone replacement therapy. Often patients benefit from being placed on hormone replacement therapy for a year or so when they're going through menopause. Your doctor will be able to advise you on the risks versus benefits. In addition there are medications to treat overactive bladder.

Menopause Doctor: In menopause the ovaries are no longer producing both estrogen (estradiol) and progesterone, which are potent female hormones. Every cell in a woman's body has estrogen and Progesterone receptors, not just the reproductive system, so the entire body suffers once in menopause. Find an integrative medicine doctor who specializes in menopause. They are best trained to prescribe bioidentical hrt.

A member asked:

How many hours should my newborn be sleeping?

Dr. Scott Katz
Pediatrics 26 years experience
18-20 hours: Most newborns are only awake for feedings, diaper changes and, on average, a few hours of crying time per day. Remember that this is an average. Some babies, just like some adults, need less sleep. If your baby is happy, healthy and growing properly, she is probably getting enough sleep. Also, most newborns are more awake at night, so try to nap when she is napping.

12-15 hours per day: On average, an infant will sleep roughly 12-15 hours per day. For most babies, that will be a combination of 10-12 hours at night and 2-4 hours of napping throughout the day.

Do not need EEG: Eeg does not diagnose or predict epilepsy. Slowly reduce the med, practice good health habits, and see how you do. Three months of no medication and no seizures can be considered a "cure".

Yes, no problem: In fact i had surgery just last week, and Propofol was used for my anesthesia too. I have sleep apnea, and there were no issues whatsoever. Your physician and anesthesiologist do need to know about your apnea, so be sure you tell them in advance.
