Understanding Breast Problems E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Up to 70 percent of women in the West experience breast changes that fluctuate with their menstrual cycles. Their breasts can feel so tender, swollen and/or lumpy that the discomfort is unbearable. Some women complain that they can’t bear to be hugged, and find sleeping very difficult because they can’t get comfortable.

Are there any symptoms?

"The symptoms are grouped under a variety of different umbrella terms, including cyclical breast pain, cyclical mastalgia (which literally means breast pain), cyclical mastitis or fibrocystic breast disease. Despite their severity and the disruption they can cause, most breast problems are...

Understanding Cervical Abnormalities and Smear Tests E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"What is a smear test?

A cervical smear test is a simple test designed to detect abnormalities in the cells of the cervix. It is also called a Pap (Papanicolaou) smear after the doctor who invented it. A small instrument called a speculum is inserted into the vagina and a spatula is put inside this in order to reach the neck of the womb (the cervix). Cells are gently scraped from the surface of the cervix, smeared onto a glass slide and then sent to a laboratory for examination...

Understanding Cystitis E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

What is cystitis?

"Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder, and it can be the result of infection, irritation, or bruising, or even a combination of these three factors. Women are more prone to cystitis than men because the tube (urethra) that runs from the bladder to the outside of the body is much shorter (about 5cm/2ins) in women than it is in men (about 18cm/7ins). This means that bacteria can more easily travel to a woman's bladder than it can a man's. What's more, the...

Understanding Endometriosis E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Endometriosis is a very common gynaecological condition which can affect up to 15 percent of all women. Half of all women with endometriosis will be infertile. After fibroids, endometriosis is the most common gynaecological problem. The National Endometriosis Society estimates that between 1.5 and 2 million women in Britain have endometriosis. In the US that number is closer to 5 million.

"Endometriosis is more common in childless women over the age of 30. It is now believed that endometriosis is...

Fat Around the Middle E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"If you're apple- rather than pear-shaped, with a tendency to gather fat around your waist, you'll know how difficult it is to keep slim. What you may not know is how dangerous the fat around your middle really is (more so than fat on your thighs or bottom), increasing your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and certain cancers.

"Because of where the fat sits on your body, normal diets, even rigorous exercise regimes rarely work. However I have devised a simple lifestyle plan that does...

Understanding Fibroids E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

What are fibroids?

"Fibroids (also called myomas) are non-cancerous growths in or on the muscular wall of the womb (the myometrium). They can vary in number and size, according to the individual. Doctors will refer to the size of a fibroid in terms of a developing baby that size – in other words, 12 weeks. Some fibroids can be as small as a pea, but others can be as large as a...

Understanding Heavy Periods E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Every woman's periods are different, and it can be difficult to assess whether or not your bleeding is heavier than it should be. Periods are obviously a personal subject, and most of us have no way of knowing if our bleeding is the same as that of our friends or anyone else. How do specialists gauge it? Well, thanks to a number of women who...

Understanding Hysterectomy E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

Hysterectomy is the most commonly performed operation, and it has, over the past decades, been used to ‘solve’ all manner of female problems. Hysterectomies are rarely performed to save lives, many are unnecessary and the most common reason for a hysterectomy is heavy periods. Frankly, the removal of a fundamental part of a woman's body for this reason is nothing short of scandalous...

Understanding Infertility E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Over the past twenty years, fertility problems have increased dramatically. At least 25 percent of couples planning a baby will have trouble conceiving, and more and more couples are turning to fertility treatments to help them have a family. On average, young couples can expect to wait an average of three years before conceiving, and, as a result, very few doctors will...

Understanding Irregular Periods E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Suffering from irregular periods is a fairly clear indication that your cycles have become imbalanced. There are a variety of reasons for this, which we will discuss below, and also many ways to address the imbalance. Many women are unconcerned about having irregular cycles until they begin trying for a baby, but other women find it very...

Understanding the Menopause E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"The menopause is not an illness. If you subscribe to the standpoint currently held by the conventional medical profession, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was.

In conventional terms the menopause and its symptoms are viewed as a disorder caused by falling hormone levels. So, by giving menopausal women hormones in the form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), the deficiency can be corrected and we have a 'cure'. This argument is supported by the supposed similarity between the...

Understanding Miscarriage E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Suffering a miscarriage is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a woman, and to her partner. Many women conceive easily and are not emotionally or physically prepared for the shock of losing a baby.

"To make it worse, there are often complaints that the medical profession lack sympathy, and investigations into the cause are normally not even considered until you have suffered three miscarriages. It may seem a callous approach, but the reason for this response is simply that miscarriage is extremely common. In fact, one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, usually before the twelfth week of pregnancy. Many women miscarry without...

Understanding Amenorrhoea (No Periods) E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Periods can be missed both at the beginning and end of our reproductive life. In the beginning, when we enter puberty, hormones can take a number of months to settle down into a proper rhythm. Much the same thing occurs as we move towards the menopause, and missing periods can be quite common. There are also natural reasons why we do not have periods – for example, during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. However, if you suffer from an...

Understanding Osteoporosis E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"In 1993, the Lancet medical journal reported that the remains of an 18th-century woman were found beneath a church. Studies showed that these bones were stronger and more dense than the bones of any modern women, either pre-menopausal or post-menopausal. Something in our modern lifestyle is clearly affecting the density and strength of our bones, and only now are we beginning to understand what that might be...

Understanding Ovarian Cysts E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Many women develop growths, known as ‘cysts’, in or on their ovaries. These cysts are fluid- (water-) filled sacs (rather like a blister). In some women cysts are completely harmless, requiring little or no treatment. These cysts are ‘benign’, or non-cancerous. Other cysts, however, can be cancerous, which is why a diagnosis is extremely important when ovarian cysts are suspected. Cysts can vary in size. They are normally small, which means that you may...

Understanding Painful Periods (Dysmenorrhoea) E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"It is estimated that between 50 and 70 percent of women endure some degree of period pain and cramping. Of those, approximately 10 percent experience contractions so extreme that they are one and a half times more powerful than labour pains.

How painful is painful?

"Every month many women suffer from pain around the time of their periods. For some women the pain can be so debilitating that they are forced to take time off work or can only get through their periods by...

Understanding Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Polycystic ovary syndrome is something quite different to suffering from ovarian cysts, which are discussed in detail in the Ovarian Cyst e-book. Polycystic ovaries are ovaries that are actually covered with very small follicles in which the egg develops.

What is polycystic ovary syndrome?

"In each menstrual cycle, follicles grow on the ovaries. Within those follicles eggs develop, one of which will reach maturity faster than the others and be released into the fallopian tubes. This is known as ovulation. The remaining...

Understanding Health During Pregnancy E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Like the menopause, pregnancy is not an illness but a natural event but there can be complications and uncomfortable symptoms that can be distressing and even debilitating for some women. It’s also very important that you know how to reach and maintain a state of optimum health in order to prepare for a comfortable pregnancy and the delivery of a healthy baby.

"At more than any other time, you will be considering what you eat when you are pregnant. The responsibility of feeding (indeed, growing!) another human being should never be taken lightly. You need to know...

Understanding PMS E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Fifteen years ago, doctors claimed that PMS did not exist. Today, it’s one of the most common conditions suffered by women, with symptoms that can be anything from mildly inconvenient to positively debilitating.

"Admittedly, some women sail through their cycles without a mood swing or a hint of discomfort. But they are pretty rare: PMS is estimated to affect 70 to 90 percent of women during their childbearing years. And 30 to 40 percent of women are believed to have symptoms severe enough to...

Understanding Prolapse E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Prolapse is a common condition and it occurs when the structures designed to keep organs in place weaken or stretch, causing them literally to ‘prolapse’. There are many causes for prolapse, but the two main causes: gravity and childbirth can affect us all, so it’s important that you keep an eye out for symptoms. A prolapse can be fairly mild but it can also...

Understanding Thrush E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Vaginal thrush affects millions of women during their lifetime and many women will have several bouts of thrush every year. Some women suffer from thrush on a monthly basis, which can be enormously uncomfortable, inconvenient and even embarrassing.

What is vaginal thrush?

"Thrush is an infection caused by...

Understanding Vaginal Infections E-book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"When the birth control pill took over as the main form of contraception for women, it replaced a variety of other methods, all of which acted as a barrier to sperm reaching an egg for fertilisation. But these methods did more than prevent sperm getting through, they also prevented diseases from...

Weight Control (Loss / Gain) E-Book  - Written by Dr. Marilyn Glenville

"Although both men and women can have weight problems, I have included this e-book because it is an issue that affects so many women. Most women I see mention their weight in relation to their overall health, and on the basis of that concern, I have addressed the main issues that affect women.


"Women form the majority of people dieting, joining a slimming club, trying the next ‘quick-fix’ solution to weight problems and they are the main purchasers of low...
