Having a baby can be one of the most exciting things to happen to the expecting woman or couple. For some, they leave the chances of getting pregnant up to nature. Others want to be able to plan that blessed event out in their own time, when they feel they are ready. For those who aren’t quite ready to start a family, there are many birth control options on the market.
While birth control is very effective to preventing pregnancy, some forms are doing far more harm to a woman’s body. There are many complications involved, and some may have the potential to be fatal. Birth control pills can cause many health risks. Some may cause abdominal and chest pain. They can also cause blurred vision and headaches. While these symptoms typically subside once you stop taking the pills, there are some that may not go away so easily.
There have been many cases where certain birth control devices, such as an IUD, has caused more severe complications. In these cases, there have been reports of some women suffering from intestinal perforations, pelvic inflammatory disease and ovarian cysts. There are also cases where women have experienced ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages because of their regular use of these types of birth control. Due to this, there are many cases in the court system involving a Mirena lawsuit.
The decision to have a baby should never come lightly, it is a life altering choice. Choosing not to get pregnant can be the best decision for many women. Picking what birth control method is best for you, should not be a hasty decision. Make sure to do as much research as you possibly can. Read all of the brochures that your doctor gives you. Make sure you are aware of any and all complications and side effects that are involved.
It turns out that my nephew Rick actually hand wrote a thank you letter to the non profit attorney nc practice, Everett Gaskins Hancock LLP, who has giving him a good dose of inspiration to finish up in high school with good grades and many years of college, to become a non profit attorney himself. Rick had a very “rocky” childhood and we all didn’t think he would live long enough to become any where close to legal age. Yet he managed to get his life in order, which took a lot of hard work and tough love for the whole family for many troublesome years.
Someone in the large circle of school friends that Rick has accumulated through the years, had a father who worked for this non profit lawyers practice. Through out the years Rick heard so much about how theses attorneys are so active with the involvement with numerous committees and commissions to improve our community. Funny how no one really remembers Rick talking about this man and what he did for a living. Rick did spend a lot of time over at that friend’s house as teenagers tend to do to socialize and to learn from various households and people that they are exposed to during that time of their life.
I hope Rick gets a hand written letter back. There are still a few people and companies that still communicate without the aid of a cell phone, pager or the Internet. I’m proud of Rick. You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to be able to say or type that!!!
This year we once again start Daylight Savings Time some what early this year, believe me I’m not complaining. I have always been a huge fan of Daylight Savings Time, so I don’t mind losing just one hour of sleep in return for an extra hour of daylight in the afternoons. Daylight Savings Time, or DST, always begins on the second Sunday of March (this year it’s March 10th) and ends on the first Sunday of November (which is November 3rd). I have no problem with the loss of sleep rather quickly, because then I can enjoy some late afternoons out in one of my gardens or on my yard swing with any or all of the critters that we have here at the house. Weather permitting of course.
I wish that they would consider to keep all the clocks around the world on Daylights Savings Time. It must be so confusing to live in counties and/or states and/or territories and the like that don’t participate in this crazy, twice yearly, ritual that was started so long ago. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I found out that not everyone everywhere was utilizing all that Daylight Savings Time has to offer.
Over the past couple of weeks I have been hearing that Burger King is in trouble with traces of horse meat being found in their popular and famous Whoppers over in the U.K. I don’t think any has been found in the burgers being sold over here in the states, thank goodness, since I tend to eat at Burger King a couple of times a month. I had to stop going to McDonald’s, because their food just doesn’t taste good to me any more. I used to love their $1 sweet tea, but that has started to taste too sweet and it makes my teeth hurt just thinking about drinking their sweet tea.
Thinking about the possibility of having horse meat placed in any of my food doesn’t set well with me. But there certainly could be worse things than horse meat that really make my stomach upset just thinking about the possibilities. I guess that is the chance that we take when we eat out and are at the mercy of the people in charge in the ordering, the preparing and the serving of our orders. I know a lot of people that refuse to eat out because of all of the horrible possibilities that are involved when you place your trust in anyone other than yourself.
Weight loss and health are two of the most talked about topics in the country. It seems everyone is trying to lose some weight and get healthy. From colon cleanse weight loss systems to strict exercise regimens, there is a mind-boggling selection of weight loss methods. How do you choose the one that’s best for you? Read on to discover several common sense tips on choosing a healthy weight loss program.
• Talk to your doctor – This is the first and most important step in on a weight loss path, yet it seems that hardly anyone actually does consult their doctor before choosing a weight loss program. A qualified physician can help you ascertain if you really are overweight and if so, just how much weight you need to lose. A doctor can also make sure that any underlying health issues are addressed and that the weight loss program you choose is a healthy one, tailored for your unique health and wellness needs.
• Do your research – As with anything, safety should be the first priority. When choosing a diet and weight loss plan, make sure it is a safe one. Again, this is where a doctor or licensed registered dietician can be extremely helpful. A healthy diet needs to have enough calories as well as enough protein and nutrients. Fad diets or super low-calorie diets fail because the body is deprived of what it needs to function properly.
• Be like the tortoise, not the hare – With weight loss, slow and steady really does win the race. Diets that promise ultra-quick weight loss are usually either extremely unhealthy or are an out and out scam. Rapid weight loss often results in yo-yo dieting where the weight lost is quickly regained, and then some. A slower weight loss rate is much healthier and has a much better chance of succeeding in the long run.
• Be able to commit – To truly gain the health benefits from weight loss, you need to keep that weight off. The best way to do that is to make permanent lifestyle changes, so be sure the changes you make are ones you can live with for the long haul. Many people find success in the short term but gain the weight back after slipping into old habits.
The best colon cleanse can be a great kick start to a weight loss program, but be sure to follow it up with a healthy diet and exercise plan.
