Ovarian Cancer Prevention Month

Ovarian Cancer is one of the most deadly women's cancers. Each year, approximately 21,980 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. This cancer typically occurs in women in their fifties and sixties with the median age being 63. Many women who are diagnosed with Ovarian cancer have a genetic history that may include carrying the BRCA mutation gene and having a strong family history of ovarian cancer. Unfortunately, many women don't seek help until the disease has begun to spread, but if detected at its earliest stage, the five-year survival rate is more than 93%. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are often subtle and easily confused with other ailments. Symptoms may include: • Bloating • Pelvic or Abdominal pain • Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly • Urinary urgency or frequency Other symptoms may include: • Nausea, indigestion, gas, constipation or diarrhea • Extreme fatigue • Shortness of breath • Backaches There is no adequate screening test of ovarian cancer at this time which is one of the reasons that this cancer is often discovered in later stages.

September is Menopause Awareness Month

September is Menopause Awareness Month. Even if you’re not in menopause, you probably know someone who is dealing with it. You may have seen their ups and downs. When does Menopause begin? Menopause usually begins around the ages of 51-52. Typically, if a woman has not had a menstrual cycle over the course of a year, she is in menopause. What are some “typical” Menopause symptoms? The most common symptom experienced by 80 percent of women during menopause are hot flashes (daytime) or night sweats. Some women may also experience muscle and joint pain (arthralgia), mood swings, “brain fog,” loss of libido and weight gain (to name a few). Many women begin to develop insulin resistance and diabetes, osteoporosis and arthritis; all caused by hormonal deficiencies. Intimacy can become painful due to vaginal dryness. How is it clinically proven that I am in Menopause? We treat the WHOLE patient as every patient is different and has different needs. Among other tests, we order a full thyroid and hormone panel INCLUDING testosterone, estradiol and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). What are proven solutions to relieving the symptoms of Menopause? After menopause, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is often prescribed to resupply the body with ...

MonaLisa Touch provides relief for many women suffering in silence

Menopause affects all women. However, most women are reluctant to talk about the common symptoms like vaginal dryness, itching, and urinary incontinence that can severely affect their quality of life and intimate relationships. These seldom talked about symptoms can profoundly impact their daily lives and intimate relationships. In fact, studies show that only 25% of women seek help from their doctor, believing its simply part of the aging process. Dr. Rachel O’Keefe, certified menopause practitioner and board-certified OBGYN at Walnut Lake OBGYN has seen first-hand how common of an issue this is for women. “We hear about this all the time from women who are patients at our practice. Unfortunately, until now, there have been very few non-pharmacological or non-surgical options that could address these common problems including vaginal atrophy, laxity and urinary incontinence”. Luckily this is about to change thanks to a breakthrough in medical technology. An in-office procedure called MonaLisa Touch is the most successful device on the market for restoring vaginal health and treating mild urinary incontinence. Walnut Lake OBGYN was one of the first practices in metro-Detroit to offer the MonaLisa Touch treatment. “We heard about MonaLisa Touch in the medical community, and after researching it, ...

A severe and potentially disabling form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) affects up to 5% of women of childbearing age. Like PMS, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) may cause bloating, breast tenderness, fatigue and changes in sleep and eating habits. In PMDD, at least one of these symptoms also occurs: sadness or hopelessness; anxiety or tension; extreme moodiness; irritability or anger. PMDD hinges on the fact that, on top of PMS symptoms, it interferes with daily function or tasks, and your relationships with other people. Many women with PMDD may also have depression, according to the U.S. Office on Women's Health. It’s important for our patients experiencing PMDD to keep a diary of their symptoms for several cycles to help the doctor pinpoint specific symptom combinations that relate to the disorder. For a PMDD diagnosis, a patient must have at least four PMS symptoms plus a fifth symptom related to mood behavior, and the symptoms must start about week before menstruation and end shortly after. Patients need to know that there's help for PMDD:. Treatments include antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. In addition, over-the-counter pain relievers may help relieve cramps, headaches, backaches, breast tenderness and other physical symptoms. While birth control ...
