Calendar Method. The calendar (rhythm method) is considered the least reliable of fertility awareness methods. Women who have very irregular periods may have even less success with this method.

Smoking is dangerous: A visit to one's doctor can help, especially if the doctor knows of successful smoking cessation methods, medications, and programs, all of which may help a tobacco user wanting to go cold turkey (stop all use at once).

Is it true that certain birth control pills (ocella/yaz/yasmin) may be leading to gallbladder issues?

This suggests that if there is a risk, it is not clinically significant. ...Read more

Been struggling with my weight the last 2 years, I cannot seem to lose the weight I gained after stopping my birth control Yaz. I gained about 10kgs in one month and I’ve been struggling to lose the wait. I exercise frequently burning 600 cal a day ?
Hi,: Weight gain and battling to lose it is a hard struggle. And the coc- combined oral contraceptive pill is notorious for being associated with this.
