Whether for contraception, menopause symptoms, or to control heavy bleeding, women have been given artificial hormones for many years now. What is the price we have paid and how can we balance that?
At menopause urinary tract infections are more common, and once again it is down to the changing hormone levels, but natural help is at hand.
It is a regular part of most women’s routine to check their breasts for lumps or anything out of the ordinary at least once a month. The faster you identify a problem, the better your chance of successful treatment.
