All About Uterine Prolapse
Uterine prolapse is often something women don’t hear or know much about until it happens to them. When the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments – which support the uterus – stretch out and grow weaker, the uterus can slip into or protrude out of the vagina. You may not even know you have a mild prolapse, which often doesn’t require treatment, but more pronounced cases can lead to discomfort and require more extensive intervention.

Ovarian Cancer Screenings
When ovarian cancer is found early, nearly 95 percent of patients live five years or longer after diagnosis, according to the American Cancer Society, yet only about 20 percent of cases are detected early. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, so you might be seeing more people wearing teal and sharing the sometimes-subtle signs of ovarian cancer. These can include bloating, pelvic/abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, and urinary urgency or frequency.
