Endometriosis- Symptoms & Treatment


Great read about Endometriosis

Originally posted on Robotic Gynaecology and IVF Australia:

Endometriosis is a common disease found among women these days. It can strike a woman of any age or race. It is estimated that most of the women have this disease at childbearing age. Some of them who suffer it; may have severe pelvic pain and others have no symptoms. There is nothing about endometriosis that is simple and also there are no absolute cures. The disease can affect a woman’s entire existence – her ability to work, to reproduce and her relations with her mate, her child & everyone around her.

Symptoms: Most commonly, the symptoms of this disease start years after menstrual periods begin. Then, the symptoms tend to gradually increase as the endometriosis areas augment in size. After menopause, the abnormal implants shrink away and the symptoms subside. The most common symptom is period’s pain, especially excessive menstrual cramps which may be felt in the abdomen…

What is Estim?


Estim machines

Originally posted on Healthy Solutions:

Estim is known under a few descriptions, Erotic Stimulation, Erotic Electro Stimulation and Electric Stimulation.

Depending what your needs are there are plenty of devices to chose from and it is always best to discuss the types of devices with your medical advisor prior to investing.

Estim is also known as EMS Electrical muscle stimulation or neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)

What ever you chose to call it or which ever product you decide to use all of them come down to one thing, which is forcing the of muscles to contract through electric impulses.

Women with weak pelvic floor muscles may see this as an easy option for pelvic floor exercising, but  with every good idea there is always a down side, which is why it is so important to discuss any alternative pelvic floor therapy with your medical advisor and physiotherapist. Over use of an electrical stimulation on muscles…

Dribbly women don’t dance – incontinence and exercise.

Dribbly women don’t dance – incontinence and exercise by Elaine Miller physiotherapist

 If you are reading this you are not my audience.  Sorry.  The fact that you are reading something to do with incontinence suggests that you already have an understanding about the condition, are comfortable getting information about it, and are keen to learn more. So, you either are, or, will be, alright.

The people I fret about are the millions of women who are living with their leaking and not yet seeking help.  They just put up with having poor bladder control, pad up, and feel a bit disappointed.

Well, I say “feel a bit disappointed”.  In fact is that a third of them go on to develop clinical depression.  Of course, exercise is commonly recommended for managing mood disorders – but, if you leak when you run, well, you’re not going to go for a run, are…

Dear CrossFit and “CrossFit Gynecologist,” I’m Appalled. There’s Help For ‘Peeing’ During Workouts!


Worth reading this

Originally posted on Pelvic Guru ™:

What’s the Issue?

Recently, a CrossFit video, entitled, ‘CrossFit – Do You Pee During Workouts?’ was released on YouTube. CrossFit participants were interviewed at the Central East Regional competition.

 “CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.”CrossFit website

Watch this video to see what the controversy is all about:


Why am I Shocked About the Video?

  • Any video that starts out with an announcer stating THIS is not going in a good direction: “we’ve seen blood today and now we see urine and that’s what it takes if you want to be the fittest woman on the planet.”
  • A GYNECOLOGIST that participates in CrossFit states in the interview: “We need to invent something to help these women. I’m one of ‘em. Do about 10 double…
