For many years I too had advised that the proper way to perform Kegel exercises was to activate those pelvic floor muscles that would allow the patient to stop and then start the urinary stream. More »
Do pregnancy and childbirth affect bladder control? Yes. But don't panic. If you lose bladder control after childbirth, the problem often goes away by itself. Your muscles may just need time to recover. More »
The uterus can lie in different positions in the pelvis, and it may vary from one woman to another. Most commonly, the uterus lies horizontally over the bladder, as do the ovaries. As the uterus enlarges with pregnancy, or perhaps with a large fibroid, it will cause increasing pressure on the bladder, and this results in increasing urinary frequency, pressure symptoms, and perhaps lower abdominal protrusion.

In the United States alone, it is conservatively estimated that there are between 10 and 20 million women suffering from the involuntary loss of urine! The large baby boomer population of the United States is now moving through the menopausal transition period when this involuntary loss of urine (urinary incontinence) often becomes worse, and consequently the number of women with incontinence will only increase.

Endometriosis is a condition in which the lining of the uterine cavity (endometrium) grows outside of the uterus. Endometriosis can be found anywhere in the pelvic cavity, including all the reproductive organs as well as on the bladder, small bowel, colon, rectum, appendix, and vagina. However, endometriosis cannot be considered simply as misplaced endometrium, because it differs in hormonal responses and visual appearance. More »
Depression and incontinence appear to be associated in women, but the statistical strength of that association depends on the instrument used to classify depression, according to this population-based, cross-sectional study. Investigators used data on 5,701 women aged 50 to 69 years collected during interviews conducted for the Health and Retirement Study. More »
On October 6, 2000 the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) announced that it was initiating a national policy for coverage of biofeedback treatments of urinary incontinence (UI). This is a significant development both for physicians already using biofeedback and for those contemplating adding conservative therapies to their practice. More »
We are coming out of a dust bowl. When I was asked to write an article on the recent history of biofeedback for treating incontinence and the reimbursement associated with it, my first thought was that it's been a dust bowl. For the last five years we have been working with OB/GYNs, urogynecologists, and urologists from across the country who provide biofeedback. More »

Many thanks for your interest in the FetalGrowth app, it was a surprise for us to see the post Carlos has started, and those many follow-ups ! We would like to make some comments regarding our app:
Why Fetalgrowth app, in the first place? Most ultrasound equipments that compute fetal weight percentiles and most charts and calculators available on the internet rely on basic statistical models and have quite limited accuracy. This is fine for example in normal pregnancies where say, one chart gives you a figure of 40% ptile while another gives you, 60%. You 'll know you are dealing with a more or less normal fetal weight. But what happens when one calculator gives you 5% and another 25%? You will surely want to rely on a tool as accurate as possible to be certain you deal with a Small for Gestational Age case or not. In such cases Fetalgrowth will be of much help as it is an accurate tool using fully customized statistical models (you will need to input more info but calculation will be more reliable).
Customization is provided for several countries such as Spain, Sweden, Netherlands, Ireland, UK, USA, Australia, etc. If interested to include a model of your country and may provide us with pregnancies statistics for that country, please contact us at email@example.com.
Just to make sure, we will detail a bit what is actually required to add a model for a new country. We need some data (nation-wide statistics) regarding pregnancies in that country. Namely, we need a list of singleton pregnancies and twins pregnancies with the following data (this is the minimum information required):
- Mother's age - Maternal Ethnicity - Maternal Parity - Maternal Height - Maternal Weight at booking - Gestation (weeks,days) - Baby's weight at birth - Fetus Gender
We need to know if the mother suffered certain conditions that could have affected fetal development and if the pregnancy was normal or not.
A minimum of 1000 singleton cases and at least 200 twins cases would be needed to design the statistial model of birthweight and based on this model implement the calculator and growth charts.
Morcellation of the Uterus is an oncologically flawed and dangerous practice. It is incredible that the gynecological community is accepting the practice as safe. For example, the incidence of occult leiomyosarcoma is 1/400 in women who undergo hysterectomy for presumed benign fibroid disease. Morcellation leads to conversion of an early stage, contained and potentially curable uterine cancers to a deadly stage 4 cancer; that is, sarcomatosis or carcinomatosis. Morcellation is virtually never part of the informed consent process. And even if it was, the incidence of occult uterine malignancy makes it a disastrous and unethical technique. Please refer to the following link to a petition to place an immediate moratorium on this terrible practice. It is your ethical responsibility to explore this issue and help stop it: https://www.change.o...ve-hysterectomy
Has anyone tried FetalGrowth app (App Store for iPhone/iPad) ? I'm interested in using a simple and handy tool to calculate fetal percentiles, and I came across this app, which seems it does the job (plots growth charts, as well). I haven't seen anything else, besides this app, so I was wondering if there are people who have already tried it.
’Scientists have somehow missed definitions of gender in human beings,” states Dr. Makarand Fulzele. Insights gained from years of practice as surgeon makes him wonder if indeed we have overlooked facts staring in our face. Nature has a tendency to hide many secrets but at the same time it provides enough clues to unravel its mysteries. Dr. Fulzele picks up loose threads from life to stitch together the theory that man is an extension of woman in his new book, “Man Is the Extension of Woman: Know the Ultimate Truth about Yourself” (published by iUniverse). Dr. Fulzele’s book explores similarities between men and women against the backdrop of their genetic differences, physical variations, and emotional and intellectual dissimilarities. Dr. Fulzele who is a successful surgeon further explains in his book: The main hypothesis I discuss in this book is that, if a woman lives long enough she will be converted into a man physically. A similar thing can also be stated about man. It is wrong to categorize humankind into two genders as it implicates that they are extremely dissimilar and physically opposite to each other. I try to prove that man and woman are just two different stages of one developmental process. And physically they are very similar. The ideas presented may sound unconventional but Dr. Fulzele implores readers to consider his point of view with an open mind. “Your world will not change if you do not agree with me. But if you agree with me, how does it change your world? If more people agree with you and me, how does it change our world? The possibilities are limitless.” About the Author Dr. Makarand Fulzele is a successful surgeon and medical superintendent of a government hospital in Mumbai. He enjoys tapping into hidden and mysterious regions of the human mind, where many strange thoughts occur and get ignored. He is also the author of “Rainbow,” a book similarly dedicated to the spirit of light.
