Migraines And Women™

Image
Migraines occur far more frequently in women than in men. In fact, in adult women the rate of frequency is roughly fifteen to seventeen percent, whereas in men it is only about five percent. Studies have concluded that estrogen withdrawal is a key factor in migraines related to menstrual cycles. Twenty-five to thirty percent of all women in their 30s experience at least an occasional migraine. Menstrual migraines generally last longer than non-menstrual migraines and often are much more difficult to treat effectively. Sixty to seventy percent of women who suffer from migraines have menstrual-related migraine. Ten to fourteen percent of women with migraines have them only during menstruation. These types of headaches are known as ‘true menstrual migraine’. Premenstrual migraine may in fact be part premenstrual syndrome (PMS), the menstrual related mood disorder. Symptoms of PMS include fatigue, irritability or depression, bloating and, yes, headache. Two-thirds of women who suffered fr…

Menstrual Calendar, Charting Your Signs of Fertility™

Image
Charting the signs of our menstrual cycle is a good way to keep in touch with our bodies, our feelings, and our health. It is also a good way to predict our days of menstruation in advance, even if menstrual cycles are irregular, and to know the most fertile times if we are hoping to conceive.

Cervical Mucus

The sign that is easier to observe is the cervical mucus, since it is noticed in the course of daily activity. Fertile type mucus is produced by the cervix during the days when the ova are maturing and preparing for ovulation. This mucus is not only an indicator of fertility, it is essential for fertility. Cervical mucus nourishes the sperm, protects them from the natural acidity of the vagina, and guides them toward the ovum. Following is a simple way to observe and chart your fertile type mucus.€™t

Pay attention to how you feel as you go about your daily activities. Just as you have learned to notice a certain wetness at menstruation, you will begin to notice a second wet time, but…

Image
The first thing you should do is to list out the choices you have, and your budget. Consider what his likes and dislikes are; whether he has an interest in sports, gardening or reading. If he has an interest in sports, you could consider buying him some sports equipment like golf clubs, a baseball mitt or billiards cues. It all depends on his likes. Or if he is an electronic man who loves new gadgets, keep a look out for new electrical items there are on the market, and buy one of them.

Foods to Eat to Lose Weight™

Foods To Eat To Lose Weight

1. Eggs - The highest valued protein of all foods. Just a great choice for breakfast since they have a lot of protein and fill you up so you can avoid snacking in the late morning.

2. Black beans - Contains 25 grams of fiber and 25 grams of protein in a 50 cent can. That fiber takes care of most if not all the fiber that the average person needs in a day. I generally recommend a higher fiber intake for weight loss... over 40 grams a day. But the U.S. government says you should get at least 25 grams of fiber. So that's taken care of. Added bonus, no sugar in them.

3. Tuna - About 30 grams of protein... a lot considering the small size in the typical can. Since many people don't like tuna by itself (me included), I suggest you mix it into other things. Mix with black beans and some sour cream. Mix into a lean chopped up meat such as beef or chicken. Mix into a salad. Whatever floats your boat.

4. Apples - The king of all snacks. High in fiber and water co…

The good news for all those women used to their daily coffee fix is that there’s no need to completely kick the habit in most cases. (Check with your doctor to make sure). Most studies have found that moderate consumption of caffeine (200mg a day) will not harm the baby. On the other hand, research does indicate a possible link between increased risk of a miscarriage and the consumption of more than 300mg of caffeine in a day.Aside from possible fetal complications, there is also the subject of the effect of caffeine on the mother herself. Caffeine is a stimulant…

Elegant Work Bags For Professional Women™

Image
For business women today creating a polished professional image is as much a key to their success, as their experience and skill sets. We've all seen movies like Working Girl where the secretary has far more flair and natural ability than her bosses, but is only taken seriously once she abandons her big hair and transforms her image to be well-groomed and elegantly dressed.

Sexual Harassment and Sexual Discrimination When Working Internationally™

Image
Since ancient times women have been viewed, in many cultures, as men’s inferiors physically, morally, and intellectually. Today, in western cultures, women enjoy more freedom and equality than ever before in history. Despite the gains made by women in recent years, particularly in the U.S., many women worldwide still find that their access to education, employment, healthcare and political influence are limited because of their gender. These discrepancies continue to exist because many societies still maintain centuries-old social and religious laws, customs, and traditions that have created barriers to education, jobs, and healthcare, as well as deprive women of their political and civil rights.

Sexual Harassment

Sexy Lingerie: Teddies And Bodysuits Are More Than Just Sexy™

Image
At first glance all teddies and bodysuits might look alike, but there are some differences between the two pieces of lingerie. A teddy usually a one piece garment that resembles the combination of a camisole and panties. While teddies are now considered sexy lingerie, like all lingerie they started out with a specific function. Teddies were used for full coverage underneath clothing. A fit that was once loose, became more form fitting over time, eventually evolving into the skin tight lingerie we have today.

A bodysuit is also a single piece made of a stretchy material and designed to cling to the body. Bodysuits have short sleeves, long sleeves, no sleeves, and leggings. Teddies are primarily thought of as sexy lingerie and are never worn as an outer garment. Sexy bodysuits, on the other hand, are often worn for fun in the bedroom or for making a splash out in public. Bodysuits gained popularity in the 1980s, frequently worn as outerwear. A sexy bodysuit was and still is a perfect mat…
