Health, Site News - May 17th, 2009
I’ve decided to start a new category for posts about women’s health. While this is a beauty blog, it’s also a woman-focused blog so talking about women’s health is still topical. I hope my readers will enjoy and appreciate this new content!
Kicking it off is some good info about a subject many of us wish we hadn’t experienced: the UTI, or Urinary Tract Infection. Cystex, makers of an over-the-counter urinary pain relief medication, have put together some informational videos with board-certified urologist Dr. Elizabeth Kavaler. The Cystex site also features a UTI FAQ with answers to your burning (ha! ha!) questions about UTIs.
Here is a link to the Mayo Clinic’s site about UTIs – the site walks you through an explanation of the infection, possible causes, what to expect at the doctors office, home care, and prevention.
I’ll leave you with a video of Dr. Kavaler discussing the importance of “taking a seat.”
