Are there screening tests for cancer?
There are screening tests for some forms of cancer, including breast cancer, cancer of the cervix, and colorectal cancer. These tests should be a part of your routine health care. They help find changes in the body that may be early signs of cancer or may lead to cancer.
What happens as menopause nears?
As menopause nears, the ovaries make less estrogen. One of the earliest and most common signs that menopause may be approaching is a change in your menstrual periods.
Even though menstrual periods tend to be irregular around the time of menopause, you should be aware of bleeding that is not normal for you. This could be a sign of a problem.
At some point, the ovaries stop making enough estrogen to thicken the lining of the uterus. This is when menstrual periods stop. You are not completely free of the risk of pregnancy until 1 year after your menstrual last period.
What is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become thin, brittle, and weak. These changes can increase the risk of fractures. Fractures can lead to disability. Fractures caused by osteoporosis have been linked to an increased risk of death.
Can certain substances affect sexual response?
Smoking, alcohol, and drugs can affect sexual response for both women and men. Smoking can slow down blood flow in the sexual organs and cause arousal problems. Alcohol and drugs affect how your body responds. A good first step in addressing sexual problems is to stop or limit smoking and the use of drugs or alcohol.
