Tests and Procedures Women Should Have Before Reaching Their 60s
Prevention is an integral part of a person’s healthcare. For adult women nearing 60 years of age, it’s all the more important to know the current status of their health. If you aim to enjoy your life even at that age, you have to be aware of your overall health.
There are a couple of variables that significantly impact your overall health: genetics and your lifestyle. Both influence every symptom that your body may feel and health condition you may have, and aging is a factor that compounds them. Although you can’t prevent aging and alter your genetics, you can change your lifestyle. It takes having the initiative and the right mindset to do that before reaching 60, a tender age for a woman.
Regardless of how great you feel, you have to get yourself checked to know how healthy you really are. Taking action means being proactive and setting appointments for screenings, check-ups, treatments, and therapies. Learn about the tests and procedures women should have before reaching 60 in this article.Learn More

Sexual Health and Wellness for Women and for Men: There is no expiration date on a healthy sex life
I once received an anonymous letter at my office which changed my practice. As a urologist for 30 years, I have spent much of my career devoted to helping men with erectile dysfunction. It was after helping a man that I received the “anonymous” letter. Like a frightening ransom note, the letters were cut and pasted from magazines. The author was pleading with me to stop helping because, as a wife with her own difficulties, she was unable to participate in sex. She went on to question: what could I possibly offer to help her?
Well, what could I do? I immediately started to educate myself about the often ignored subject of female sexual dysfunction. Because half of my patients are women, I began to include an open-ended question about sexual health as part of a routine medical history. Suddenly, I was listening to multiple stories from women about their desires and concerns that had gone unmentioned for years or decades. More importantly, they were relieved and excited that a doctor should actually ask and be interested in their sexual health. The origins of the problems were varied, but the common goal was to restore a wonderful but missing part of their life.

Q: Why is my vagina dry and painful during intercourse?
A: The main reason for vaginal dryness lies in a lack or reduction in estrogen. Estrogen is the hormone which stimulates vaginal tissues to thicken, and to secrete fluids to moisten the lining of the vagina. In menopause, estrogen levels drop dramatically, and the vagina loses elasticity, thickness, sensation, and moisture.Learn More

What are the Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment of Overactive Bladder?
Bob, a 53-year-old executive, realized he was waking up two or three times a night to go to the bathroom. During the day, he frequently ran to the men’s room, to avoid embarrassing accidents. Bob was diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), an enlarged prostate condition, which was now obstructing the urine flow from his bladder. Initially, his doctor prescribed a medication to relax the prostate, with only minimal success. Further testing confirmed that his prostate enlargement had caused the bladder to become overactive, giving him the frequent urges to urinate.Learn More
