Treatment of Prolapse
There are several surgical procedures that can correct support issues with pelvic prolapse. These procedures vary based on the type of pelvic prolapse and should be discussed further with your physician.
What is “Tomosynthesis?”
Tomosynthesis is a process that takes multiple images of breast tissue. Digital breast tomosynthesis offers cross-section views of the thin sections of the breast. While 2D screening has been proven to reduce breast cancer mortality, its sensitivity and specificity are limited. 3D tomosynthesis compensates for this by being able to detect malignant lesions that could be obscured by overlapping breast tissue on a standard mammogram. It can also increase specificity by detecting pseudolesions, which can often trigger so-called “false positive” results.
My period has been different. What’s going on?
Your menstruation periods should be regular. If you notice something starting to change in your menstruation like heavier flow, prolonged menstruation periods, or if your cycle is happening at a much more frequent rate, you should contact your doctor and let them know what is going on.
Is it safe to paint while pregnant?
It all depends on the type of paint you’re using. Some chemicals found in paint such as lead, zinc, and aluminum should be avoided. The most common paint used is latex paint, which is safe; it doesn’t contain solvents and clean up is easy with soap and water. Oil-based paint contains solvents and requires mineral spirits or turpentine for clean up. It is best to avoid contact with oil-based paints if possible and to consider these precautions if you cannot use latex paint:
- Limit the amount of time you spend exposed to the paint.
- Provide good ventilation and wear a mask.
- Wear gloves, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt to protect absorption through the skin.
- Do not eat or drink near the paint site to avoid ingesting paint chemicals.
Overall, it is best to avoid painting with oil-based paints until after delivery.
