    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 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. 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...

    3. Understanding Vaginal Infections E-book
      "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...

    5. Understanding Prolapse E-book

      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...

    6. Understanding Health During Pregnancy E-book
      "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...

    7. Understanding Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) E-book
      "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...

    8. Understanding Painful Periods (Dysmenorrhoea) E-book
      "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...

    9. Understanding Ovarian Cysts E-book

      "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...

    10. Understanding Osteoporosis E-book
      "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...

    11. 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...

    12. Understanding Miscarriage E-book
      "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...
