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.

pregnancy stressLife is stressful enough without the challenges of being pregnant. Add the pressure cooker atmosphere of the holiday season and you have a recipe for an expectant mom’s meltdown. But there are some simple steps you can take to cope with stress now and anytime during your pregnancy.

The first step is to accept that pregnancy is stressful. It’s okay to share your fears with your partner, because he’s probably feeling stress too. Communicating about your anxiety can help you both feel better.

incontinence smUrinary incontinence (UI) is a common problem that affects as many as one out of three women. It may be a few drops of urine that leak out when you cough or laugh, urine loss during sexual activity, or a sudden and uncontrollable urge to urinate.

UI is usually caused by problems with muscles and nerves as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, or menopause. There are effective medical treatments for urinary incontinence, but the first step is to talk about it, even if you feel shy. Many women across southeast Michigan suffer from urinary incontinence and our doctors at Northline Women’s Health Center have heard stories just like yours.

robotic hysterectomy smA hysterectomy is the most common surgery in gynecology and is second only to the C-section in all of women’s health care with about 600,000 hysterectomies performed each year in the United States.

A hysterectomy removes the uterus, and sometimes the cervix and occasionally other reproductive organs. A hysterectomy may be necessary to treat cancer of the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes, or ovaries; a prolapse of the uterus; fibroids; Endometriosis, unmanageable bleeding or chronic pelvic pain.

A missed period may be the first sign that you're pregnant. You'll probably want to take a home pregnancy test and if that's positive, it's time to schedule an appointment with us.  A typical pregnancy lasts 40 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period to the birth of the baby. Pregnancy is divided into three stages - the first trimester, the second trimester, and the third trimester.
