    1. Fat Around the Middle E-book
      "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...

    2. Understanding Amenorrhoea (No Periods) E-book
      "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...

    3. Understanding Breast Problems E-book
      "Up to 70 percent of women in the West experience breast changes that fluctuate with their menstrual cycles.

Some women complain that they canメt bear to be hugged, and find sleeping very difficult because they can't get comfortable.

    4. Understanding Cervical Abnormalities and Smear Tests E-book

      "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.

    5. Understanding Cystitis E-book
      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...

      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.

    9. Understanding Heavy Periods E-book
      "Every woman's periods are different, and it can be difficult to assess whether or not your bleeding is heavier than it should be.

Well, thanks to a number of women who...
