March is Endometriosis Awareness Month

Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disease that affects at least 6.3 million women and girls in the U.S., 1 million in Canada, and millions more worldwide. It occurs when tissue like that which lines the uterus (tissue called the endometrium) is found outside the uterus -- usually in the abdomen on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and ligaments that support the uterus; the outer surface of the uterus; and the lining of the pelvic cavity. This misplaced tissue develops into growths or lesions which respond to the menstrual cycle in the same way that the tissue of the uterine lining does: each month the tissue builds up, breaks down, and sheds. Menstrual blood flows from the uterus and out of the body, but the blood and tissue shed from endometrial growths have no way of leaving the body. This results in internal bleeding, a breakdown of the blood and tissue from the lesions, and inflammation -- and can cause pain, infertility, scar tissue formation, adhesions, and bowel problems. What are the Symptoms of Endometriosis? • Pain before and during periods • Infertility • Fatigue • Painful urination during periods • Painful bowel movements during periods • Other Gastrointestinal upsets such as ...

What YOU Should Know About Endometrial Ablations

Do you suffer from unusually heavy periods that last too long and cause fatigue or even anemia? Endometrial ablation might be an option for you. Why it's done: -Unusually heavy periods, sometimes defined as soaking a pad or tampon every two hours or less -Bleeding that lasts longer than eight days -Anemia from excessive blood loss By surgically destroying (ablates) the lining of the uterus (endometrium), the endometrial ablation reduces menstrual flow, and in some women, it may stop completely. Some types of endometrial ablation can be done in your doctor's office, and no incisions are needed. Factors such as the size and condition of your uterus will help determine which endometrial ablation method is most appropriate. If you think you might be a candidate for this procedure, contact us at Walnut Lake OBGYN & Wellness to schedule your consultation today!

3 Common New Parent Questions

Almost every new parent knows the feeling: It’s 2 a.m., you’re bleary-eyed and you want nothing more than everyone to get some sleep. However, you’re up, and so is your new baby. Though most parents wish their little one could tell them what’s keeping him or her awake, sometimes there’s no clear answer. To help parents who are looking for answers to the questions that keep them awake, including those regarding poop, sleep and tummy time, Walnut Lake OB/GYN & Wellness, offer this advice. 1. Why is my baby’s poop a weird color? Flashback to before your baby was born: You probably never imagined you’d be searching the internet for answers to questions about poop.

Is stress affecting your weight loss battle?

Stress brought on by dieting is added to the personal and work life stresses that we face every day, often resulting in a "vicious cycle" of increased stress and increased food intake. People under stress tend to engage in self-defeating and unhealthy behaviors such as binge eating and there is strong biologic evidence that stressed-out people may tend to put on the pounds faster. "I'm stressed, therefore I eat." Many people complain that they overeat in response to workplace or personal stress. If this sounds like you, read the following tips for managing stress-related overeating to help you check this unhealthy habit. 1. Practice waiting. Postpone your instant gratification when hunger hits. Tell yourself you'll wait 10 to 30, minutes to eat. Chances are good if your cravings are only stress-related, they'll disappear when you allow yourself to become distracted. 2. Keep a food journal of what you eat each day. Knowing you have to write down every snack or nibble can be a good way to remind yourself to think before eating. 3. Enlist a friend's help - ideally one who also is tempted by stress-related cravings. When you feel like eating, write him/her a quick note or make ...
