HRT and Breast Cancer

By Oscar

Fear of breast cancer is probably the most common reason women decide against hormone replacement therapy. Many women became concerned about their risk after the Nurses Health Study 1995 report suggested an elevated risk of breast cancer for women who use HRT for more than five years.

However, doctors caution that the results of the Nurses Health Study are not definitive proof of a link between breast cancer and HRT and that the benefits may outweigh the risks for many women.

Researchers note that:

More than 30 other studies have examined the link between estrogen and breast cancer, and the results from these studies are inconclusive.
For many women, the risk of developing heart disease is much higher than the risk of developing breast cancer.

Women with no history of breast cancer who use HRT for less than five years show no increased risk for breast cancer. Only you and your healthcare provider can determine the relative benefits and risks of HRT as they apply to your particular condition.

If you are considering HRT but are concerned about your risk, talk to your health care provider.

By Oscar

While the term ” maternity leave ” is familiar to most people, paternity leave is less so. Many women take a significant amount of time off work during the end of their pregnancy and the first weeks or months of their baby’s life. Fathers, however, are much less likely to take time off, for a number of reasons.

Fertilization

By Oscar

During intercourse, semen is ejaculated into the vagina, where the sperm can then travel through the cervix and uterus up into the Fallopian tubes to fertilize an egg. In some cases, the egg is already in the tube awaiting fertilization; in others, the sperm (which can live for up to 72 hours) wait in the Fallopian tubes for an egg to be released.

Pregnancy

By Oscar

I’m pregnant and can’t find ANYTHING to wear! Why is it that designers assume any sense of style you might have had prior to pregnancy disappears upon conception? I’ve never liked pastels, lacy smocks or cute animal prints. Got any suggestions?

The Chosen Child

By Oscar

Adoption may not have been a consideration when you began to plan or add to your family. This wasn’t your chosen path to walk. However, it is helpful to be familiar with all your options so that you have the greatest chance of realizing your dream. “What does it mean to be adopted?” asked a child. “It means that you grew in your mother’s heart instead of her tummy.”
