American Heart Month is about more than wearing red on the first Friday of February. It's about taking action to prevent heart disease and stroke.

The risk is real because heart disease and stroke kills one woman every 80 seconds. Your best defense is education and here’s how you can "Go Red."

Building Immunity smThis is the time of year when everyone’s immune system is stressed as the body battles against cold viruses and the flu and the fight can be tougher if you’re pregnant. That’s because your pregnancy is suppressing the immune system to accommodate for all of the biological changes underway in your body.

HPV Cervical Cancer smCervical cancer affects nearly 13,000 women in the United States each year and it kills more than 4,000 of them. But it is one of the most preventable cancers and vaccination can greatly reduce the risk.

Cervical cancer develops slowly beginning with abnormal cell changes that occur years before cancer develops. These cell changes can be caused by human papillomavirus (HPV).

pregnant fallWhen you think about the danger of falling we usually associate it with older women, but mothers-to-be also need to take care to avoid a fall that can injure you and your baby.

It’s estimated that one out of four pregnant women will suffer a fall.

Be sure to evaluate any symptoms you might have if you take a tumble.

Now, there’s a new way to get Bio-HRT from using pellet delivery from Northline Women’s Health Center, the leader in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in southeast Michigan.

Pellets about the size of an apple seed and made from hormones are placed just under the skin in an outpatient procedure. These pellets slowly release the hormone into the body's fat and then into the bloodstream.
