After-Pregnancy Blues: Cause for Concern?
Up to 4 in 5 new moms feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed, or just plain tired after giving birth. It’s no wonder so many new mothers get the “baby blues.” Even if delivery went well, mothers are bound to be short on sleep and long on responsibilities.

4 Awkward Health Problems You Should Tell Your Doctor About
Here are four common health issues you should discuss with your provider (even if you’d rather not).

Should Pregnant Women Worry About X-Rays?
If you break a bone or get into a car accident while pregnant, a healthcare provider may need to give you a scan, such as an X-ray, to see what’s going on. But isn’t that dangerous for your baby? Probably not.

Breastfeeding May Lower Women’s Postmenopausal Stroke Risk
Breastfeeding also reduces your risk for breast and ovarian cancer, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and other conditions.

Pregnancy Discomforts: When to Call the Doctor
Congratulations—you’re pregnant! The next 9 months may bring some uncomfortable changes to your body. Most of these ills—including backache, constipation, and morning sickness—aren’t worrisome.

What Is Molecular Breast Imaging?
Molecular breast imaging (MBI) is a test similar to X-ray, CT, and ultrasound, but with an important difference. Those imaging procedures provide pictures of bones and soft tissue, but MBI allows health care providers to see what is happening inside the breast at a molecular and cellular level.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Treatment Key to Maintaining Good Health
PCOS is a common hormonal problem in women of childbearing age. The condition often is accompanied by other health problems, and can make it hard to get pregnant.

Hysterectomy: What Are My Options?
Hysterectomy is surgery to remove your uterus. It may be done to help treat cancer, fibroids, or endometriosis.

Lung Cancer May Be Greater Threat to Women than Breast Cancer
The major reason for the greater risk is that more women are smoking these days.

HPV Test May Be Better Than Pap Test at Detecting Cervical Precancer
A new study found that women who got the HPV test were much less likely to develop cervical precancer than those who were screened with the Pap test.

5 Health Symptoms Women Shouldn’t Ignore
If you’ve noticed small changes in your health, you may be tempted to shrug them off. But something small may be a sign of a more serious issue.

Timing of Menopause Linked to Diet
