Dr Oz: Women’s Health Down There
There are all kinds of medical symptoms and issues that come up when our pants go down. But they’re not always talked about in polite company. Thank goodness for Doctor Oz, who discussed intimate issues including Yeast Infection Remedies, Urinary Incontinence, and the debate about Hysterectomy Vs Hysteroscopic Myomectomy. He also investigated Using Men’s Razors For Intimate Shaving.
Dr Lauren Streicher is a gynecologist who joined Dr Oz for a candid conversation about women’s health issues. For this show, Dr Oz also invited groups of girlfriends from around the country to help them find answers to questions they just don’t talk about.
Dr Oz: Hysteroscopic Myomectomy
Mina was one of the women Dr Oz invited to talk about her health questions. She wanted to know what can be done to control heavy flow bleeding during her monthly cycle. Dr Streicher explained that heavy bleeding is a common symptom, typically associated with Fibroids.
Dr Oz illustrated a normal Uterus and Ovary, and then compared it to a Uterus with a Fibroid growth, which was much larger. However, the Fibroids that cause this are benign, and you don’t have to worry about them moving to other body areas.
While some Fibroids settle inside the Uterus, others push against it. When this happens, it can cause a malformation and bleeding. Hormones are a contributing factor to this issue.
Dr Oz: Hysterectomy Vs Hysteroscopic Myomectomy
You’ve probably heard of a woman in your life undergoing a Hysterectomy. But there are other approaches that can help stop heavy bleeding. Dr Oz revealed that the Hysterectomy is the #1 unnecessary surgery performed for women.
On the other hand, a Hysteroscopic Myomectomy is less complex, and also offers the potential option of future pregnancy. It’s a 45 minute outpatient procedure, which means you get to go home the same day it’s performed.
But the Hysteroscopic Myomectomy only works for Fibroids in the Uterine Cavity. Dr Oz said if you are told you need a Hysterectomy, it’s a good idea to get a second opinion before making a choice. That way you can know all your options before coming to a decision.
Dr Oz: Urinary Incontinence
Tammy was from another group of friends invited to the show. She reported that her plumbing has been different since giving birth to her children. She has persistent urine leakage, and she wanted to know what to do about it.
Aging, weight gain, or childbirth can all cause incontinence. You might find that if you laugh or cough, you unintentionally release urine. Overactive bladder sufferers can have other problems as well.
A tight pelvic floor prevents leakage, but these risk factors cause the pelvis to sag, which causes a noticeable change in your continence, especially as you sneeze or laugh.
Dr Oz: Pelvic Physical Therapy & Incontinence
Kegel exercises can help to tighten the pelvic muscle, but they may not be the most effective solution, depending on your symptoms and circumstances. Instead, you might require Pelvic Physical Therapy to take a more aggressive approach in strengthening your pelvic floor.
Dr Oz: Botox Remedy For Incontinence
Botox is often thought of as a beauty problem, but it is increasingly effective for a variety of other medical issues. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has now approved injections of Botox into the bladder muscle as an Incontinence treatment.
Dr Oz: Yeast Infection Advice
Are you constantly coming down with Yeast Infections? That’s Diana’s problem, and Dr Oz said that at least half the female population will have this problem sometime in life. Yeast can get into the bladder, where it thrives on heat, moisture, and sugar. These ingredients can excite the bladder and cause infections.
Dr Oz Yeast Infections: RepHresh Pro B Review
There are different approaches to treating Yeast Infections. One that Dr Oz recommended is the RepHresh Pro B, which is available at your local pharmacy or drugstore, to help cleanse the body of wanted bacteria.
Dr Oz Yeast Infections: Fluconazole Review
Still struggling with chronic yeast infections? Dr Oz said that if over the counter remedies aren’t helping, you can try a regimen of Fluconazole. Just take one pill every week for six months to address chronic issues.
