For some reason, among people, including female doctors, there was a very false opinion that the labia minora should be almost the same in all women.
On the contrary, the number of variations of this part of the external genital organs is diverse. The size, shape, and color of the labia minora could be different, with even or fringed edges, asymmetrical, narrow, wide, shiny, matte, etc. — it’s all the norm. (далее…)

I never thought that the topic of pregnancy planning after bariatric surgery would be so relevant. But, as obesity becomes a serious pandemic, many young women agree to such an operation.
I personally know several of these women. When in such cases it is possible to plan pregnancy? (далее…)
With this post I want to draw your attention to the topic of social media and psychological pressure, the imposition of certain «public» images, artificially created fashion for almost all aspects of our lives, including personal ones.
And I am writing about this because the other day serious data were published on the increase in suicide cases among teenage girls, especially those who are overweight. (далее…)
Quite often I hear from pregnant women that they have a headache. «Doctor, what should I take?».
It seems like a simple question. But the modern classification of headache has about 200 types of pain, considering the cause of it. If the cause is different, then, of course, different treatment is, right? (далее…)

Two interesting studies have been conducted regarding the impact of night work (night shifts) on women’s health.
• The results of the first study were published in Occup Environ Med 2019 and looked at the impact of night shifts on early pregnancy loss. It turned out that the number of miscarriages was higher in those women who had at least two-night shifts compared to those who had no night shifts. After adjusting for age, weight, smoking, previous pregnancies and deliveries, two or more-night shifts per week between 8 and 22 weeks of gestation increased the risk of pregnancy loss by 32%. In women who have 26 night shifts from weeks 4 to 22, the risk of pregnancy loss is increased by 2 times. (далее…)

☝🏼Secondly, HPV causes cancer in men too. (далее…)

Speaking about the quality of medical care, which doctor do you think makes more accurate diagnoses: the one that uses a lot of tests and diagnostic methods, or the one that uses less than the rest?
Tinglong Dai and colleagues conducted such a study and published the results in the article «Conspicuous by Its Absence: Diagnostic Expert Testing Under Uncertainty» in Marketing Science (2020). It turns out that super-diagnostics do not need many tests. Weak diagnosticians use an excessive number of tests. Why? Due to lack of knowledge, reinsurance, low level of analytical thinking. (далее…)
