Age At Which Women Reached Menopause, Type Of Menopause Appeared To Impact Cognition In Later Ages, Study Finds This is more information and support for the importance of estrogen in women’s health. I have said for years that estrogen is important for memory and its deficiency related to Alzheimer’s Dementia. Here, the idea of
Study shows impact of endometriosis on women’s work ability New study shows that women with endometriosis have significant work reduction due to symptoms in "Middle Age." I'm not sure we needed a formal study to show this concept but it certainly highlights a huge problem for our endometriosis (adenomyosis) patients from ages 38 to 45
Menopause Symptoms May Start Long Before Women Stop Getting Their Periods, Study Shows Science is so slow to evolve: As one who tries very hard to learn from his patients, it is unbelievable that it has taken 100 years since the isolation of estrogen to "discover this secret." Women begin having symptoms of menopause
More women are delaying parenthood. As we counsel many young women with endometriosis regarding the timing of childbearing, we clearly see this trend emerging over the last ten years. However, more significant for the birth rate is a dramatic increase in women with no desire for future pregnancy. Twenty years ago it was rare
[Health Day] Studies are now showing that cardiovascular disease deaths are approaching the number one cause of death, cancer, in women under 65.
Studies are now showing that cardiovascular disease deaths are approaching the number one cause of death, cancer, in women under 65. The highest death rate was in the 25-35 yr old age group and the change decreased with age. This is really no surprise given the massive uptick in carbohydrate consumption in the U.S. over
Current recommendations are for vaccination of all adults, whether pregnant, trying to conceive or otherwise.
Current recommendations are for the vaccination of all adults, whether pregnant, trying to conceive or otherwise.

As this technology continues to evolve, I would just like to emphasize the even greater need for egg cryopreservation in our young endometriosis patients who anticipate a significant delay to child bearing. The diminished ovarian reserve that comes with endometriosis significantly shortens the reproductive time frame and thus egg freezing should be considered earlier than
Pregnant Women Who Consume Coffee May Be More Likely To Have Children With Behavioral Issues Later In Life, Study Indicates
About 3 or 4 years ago American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) made the landmark statement after 100 years of the opposite precedent that 200mg of caffeine per day in pregnancy was "OK." As many may know, I have been very outspoken in my belief that caffeine, like amphetamine (both stimulants) are very damaging
Breast Cancer Diagnosis May Quadruple Risk Of Diabetes And Metabolic Syndrome In Postmenopausal Women, Study Indicates
This studies' results clearly support the idea that insulin resistance (insulin elevation) is highly correlated with cancer. In a study like this, one cannot say that insulin causes cancer but overall the evidence is pointing in that direction. A quadrupling of the risk is a real association. We are not talking a 20% increase but
Pre-Eclampsia May Increase Mother’s Risk For Future Cardiovascular Disease And Earlier Death, Research Indicates
If one reads this medical headline from ACOG to our nations physicians, one would assume/conclude that pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure in pregnancy) itself is responsible for the increase in cardiovascular disease. This is a classic example so common in medical "reporting" in the media. The following is the article title. Title: Preeclampsia and Cardiovascular Disease in
