Mirena and Weight Gain

0 Comments

weight gainIf you are a woman considering to have an IUD treatment such as Mirena as a birth control option, you might want to do your due diligence before making a decision. Try to have a detailed discussion with your physician or gynecologist discussing about the possible options, treatment methods, and what the potential side effects are. IUD (Intrauterine device) is known as one of the most effective, reversible birth control options, however there are also some side effects associated with this treatment. It is still a controversy whether Mirena treatment should be recommended or not due to the reported side effects from women who have undertaken this treatment. However, there are also women who are successful in their Mirena application. So the most important thing to do is to have a thorough discussion with your doctor to see if this is a right option for you or not.

One of the Mirena side effects discussed frequently in woman’s forums is weight gain. There have been pros and cons about this, some people say that hormonal IUD such as Mirena does not cause weight gain, however others have reported excessive weight gain after they started with the treatment. It is hard to say with absolute sure that there is a cause and effect relationship between Mirena and weight gain, however hormonal changes in the body can sometimes affect other body functions. Of course this is different from person to person, as everyone reacts differently to hormonal changes in their body.

It is normally known that hormones imbalance in our body can sometimes cause digestive and metabolism issues. This in effect can potentially cause the body to burn less fat and hence gaining more weight. Hormones imbalance can also sometimes increase craving of sweet food such as sugar and carbohydrates, which can also account to additional weight gain. Hence it is very important to maintain hormonal balance to overcome this weight gain.

Mirena Side Effects

0 Comments

One of the most popular birth control methods is the use of hormonal IUD (intrauterine device) such as the Mirena coil. This is also called a hormonal contraceptive method, as it works by releasing the hormones into the uterus to prevent pregnancy from occurring. There is another type of IUD which is the copper IUD, both IUD prevent the fertilisation of the eggs however they work differently.

side effectsThe hormonal IUD is considered to be a bit more effective than the copper IUD. It is normally inserted for a period of 5 years, although a 3 year hormonal IUD also exists. Copper IUD on the other hand generally last longer and can stay up to 10 years.

Although quite effective, there have been a number of known and reported Mirena side effects after the application which we will look at in this article. Some of the common side effects known to the IUD usage include:

  • Mood swing/changes
  • Weight change
  • Acne
  • Nausea
  • Pain, such as breast pain, spinal pain or headaches
  • Abnormal discharge or bleeding
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Sinus infections

In addition, some of the more serious side effects may include:

  • Device expulsion, which happens when the IUD device is expelled spontaneously from the body
  • Pregnancy complications, if pregnancy happens while Mirena is still in use
  • Ectopic pregnancy, when the egg is fertilised outside of the uterus, also known as “tubal pregnancy”
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease caused by bacteria infection in the reproductive system

Please note however that different person reacts to the treatment differently, so these side effects might or might not happen to you even if you are already using Mirena. You might be suitable to use Mirena if you do not experience any discomforts or infection after the IUD insertion, however the best thing to do is to discuss with your physician or gynecologist before making the decision.

How to cope with uterine bleeding

0 Comments

One of the known side effects of using Mirena IUD as contraception is dysfunctional uterine bleeding. This is based on the detailed study conducted by Margarete Hidalgo on 256 women who agreed to use Mirena for this testing. After the first six months, 25% of these women noticed irregular spotting during the six-month period. Another 25% reported the loss of less than normal menstruation blood flow. A majority 44% reported the absence of menstruation, which is the desired side effect of Mirena. This article will discuss how to cope with Mirena bleeding if you are one of those who experiencing this.

hormones imbalanceThe most important thing to do if you experience irregular bleeding or spotting is to check with your doctor and regularly monitor the IUD and the bleeding. He/she will be able to run some tests to tell you exactly what the problem is, how your body reacts to the IUD, and if you should continue using Mirena. Please note that although some women have reported that they experienced some bleeding after Mirena coil insertion, this is not always the common trend and you might probably do just fine.

One thing that many women find helpful during their first six months with Mirena is to change their dietary intake and their lifestyle. This is helpful because it helps to restore their optimal hormonal balance. For example, reducing the intake of phytoestrogens or dietary estrogens are known to help with restoring the hormonal balance.

How does Mirena cause the bleeding? It is mostly caused by the imbalance between the two hormones progesterone and estrogen in the body. The lower the progesterone, the higher the rate of estrogen secretion is, and this can lead to irregular bleeding until the progesterone level returns to normal. As you can see, it is extremely important to always keep a good hormonal balance of our body to prevent unwanted side effects.

E-commerce website design

0 Comments

More and more businesses and individuals are now selling their products and services online. Even giant retailers such as Best Buy or Dick Smith have reported a fall in sales from their traditional stores, however sales from their online e-commerce stores are rising. This is caused by more shoppers are now buying stuff online, and it is important for businesses to catch up with this trend and strengthen their e-commerce store platform. Even individuals are now starting to sell stuff online to earn some extra income. The question is, how can someone with no technical skills start an e-commerce store?

e-commerce website designIt is not that hard to start an e-commerce online store. Just like any other types of website it requires elements such as e-commerce website design, content development, domain and hosting etc. The main difference is the website is geared towards selling products (although you can also sell your services online). So there will be many product updates required, from entering the product information, updating the description and price, maintaining the stock level, etc. Of course this goes along with automatic order processing, ie. processing orders and payments from the website, receiving, processing and fulfilling the order. Hence you will need to integrate a payment gateway into your e-commerce website. There are many merchants who already provide this service such as Paypal or Authorize.net. All you need to do is integrating their payment system into your website.

Of course, for some people this may sound like a daunting task. The good news is you do not have to do everything by yourself. Yes you can design your own e-commerce store if you can, but you can also engage help from others such as website design Melbourne agencies if you live in Melbourne. Make sure they have e-commerce website design experience as it requires a bit more than just ordinary website design.

green tea benefitsGreen tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world. It is loved by people from all walk of life – from small children to old people, from the east to the west. There are many kinds of green tea, the most popular ones being Japanese green tea and also Chinese green tea. Why is green tea so popular? Not just it is soothing, green tea also tastes good and it is believed that green tea has many health benefits which do not exist in other types of drink. Green tea is especially known as an effective anti-oxidant, and can help lowering cholesterol levels, helping with weight loss and even helping to prevent the growth of cancer cells. We will look at these health benefits in more detailed in this article before you buy green tea.

Green tea beverage is made of green tea extracts boiled in hot water. Green tea contains polyphenols and flavonoids, which is known as a powerful anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidant is a chemical or substance which can help preventing cell damage caused by free radicals. In effect, it can also prevent the development of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease and stroke.

How does green tea help in lowering cholesterol levels? It does this by lowering the LDL (bad cholesterol) level in our body and also lowering the serum triglyceride levels. Scientific studies have shown that middle aged men and women in Japan who regularly drink green tea (two or more cups per day) usually have normal cholesterol levels. It is also wide known that drinking green tea after eating fatty food can help to dissolve the fat in our body and prevent it to flow into the bloodstream.

green tea leavesProbably one of the biggest health benefits of green tea that is known to mankind is that it can help to prevent cancer by preventing damage to the cells. Green tea is very effective in this regard as it is a natural anti-oxidant which is considered to be more safe and effective to consume. It can help to prevent various kinds of cancer such as prostate cancer, breast cancer and lung cancer. In one scientific research, two groups of men in pre-prostate cancer condition were given different treatments. The men in the first group were given twelve to fifteen cups of green tea treatment per day, while the men in the second group did not take any green tea at all. After a year, only 3% of the men in the first group developed prostate cancer, compared to 30% of the men in the second group.

Green tea also contains chemicals that binds estrogen which can help women in breast cancer treatment and prevention. Women who consume green tea regularly are 50% less likely to develop breast cancer, and less likely to have re-occurence of the breast cancer after treatment if they have one.

Another benefit of green tea that is less well known is that it can protect our joints against osteoarthritis. This is made possible by green tea preventing the inflammation on the joints. Yet another appealing benefit of green tea is that it is said to help with losing weight. Green tea is also known to be beneficial to help with skin cancer treatment, and various other skin conditions such as rosacea and psoriasis.

The next question to ask is, how much green tea do we need to consume to maintain a good health? Typically two to three cups per day would be enough to achieve the health benefits mentioned above. We should also note that there is a minor side effect of drinking green tea caused by the caffeine contained in green tea. It is best to check first with your doctor if green tea is right for you, especially when you are on medication.

Would you wear a onesie on your flight?

0 Comments

sylvester onesiesOne of the things that has been debated frequently by travellers especially the young people is, would you wear a onesie on your flight. For some people it makes sense to do so especially if it is a long flight (more than 5 hours). On the other side of the spectrum are the people who say that onesies should not even be allowed to be worn on a flight as it is basically a kind of pyjamas, and you would not wear a pyjama to the flight. Which group are you? The truth is, hundreds of people are travelling on a plane wearing onesies everyday. We will look at some of the opinions of the people who have done this, and some of those who despise the idea of wearing a onesie on a plane.

Some of the cons of wearing onesie on a plane is when going through the security checking area, and when trying to use the toilet. People may also look at you as a weirdo but if you do not care about what other people think of you then this should not be an issue. You might also get sudden new fans in the form of the little kids who want to meet with the Pikachu or Sylvester at the airport or even on the plane.

On the other hand, the pros are it would give you a warm, comfy sleep during your flight as that is what a onesie should do, and you will also get the attention that other passengers won’t get. For some people comfort is more important than style so wearing a onesie is an idea most welcome by them.

If you are interested in the idea and wanted to try it for yourself, why not shop for your favourite style of onesies online and tell us about your experience.

Sometimes you have hard to reach windows or a glass facade that needs to be cleaned. In many cases the best thing to do is to hire a professional to do it for you when the budget allows.

window cleaning melbourneMost professional window cleaners offer window cleaning service for both residential homes and commercial buildings. Because of the safety reason and risks associated to the work, you need to make sure you hire a certified professional who is licensed to do the job and experienced in this area.

Choosing the right air conditioning installation company

0 Comments

If you are thinking of getting a new air conditioning or heating system installed in your home or in your office, or replacing the existing one, then it is important to hire the right service provider for the job. If you already have a maintenance contract in place with your existing air conditioning installation company then that is probably the first option you would go for unless the contract has expired. However, if you are getting a new HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) system installed then you need to be aware of certain number of things to make sure you get the most out of the cost you would be paying for the job. This article will teach you just this and help you in choosing the right air conditioning installation company.

Experience and Skills

air conditioning systemThe first and foremost criteria in choosing an air conditioning installation provider is to choose a qualified and accredited company with many years of experience. A very experienced service provider would have worked on many varieties of air conditioning and heating units, and would have probably installed almost every model and make that are available. Although you probably would not need someone with this calibre, you still need to find someone who has had experience with the make and model of the air conditioning or heating systems you need to get installed. Sometimes the senior installer would have a junior staff accompany him to learn and practice how it is done. This is okay as long as the senior staff would keep an eye on what the junior is doing, but if you do not want this to happen you can inform the company about this before the job starts.

Cost and Warranty

This is probably the number one criteria on many people’s list when they are choosing a service provider. Although it is important, you still need to make sure that you would not hire someone with the cheapest rate yet is inexperienced, as it would probably just cause more troubles in the future. Make sure you are comparing quotes on the same job on the same types of air conditioning units. Sometimes a specialist on one make of air conditioning units can give you a lower quote as they are experienced with those units, while a company with little or no experience on that make would probably charge you higher cost to cover their work and warranty. You would want to go with the more experienced one for your needs, although they might be a smaller company. Along with the installation cost, you also need to clearly ask about the warranty of their work.

Services and Professionalism

Nobody likes an awful service experience regardless of how cheap the cost is. Ask the service provider some questions before you make a decision to hire them, to find out how they interact and answering your questions. Do they care about your needs and concerns, or just cannot wait to make another sale to you. Ask them if they can provide some references of previous clients who are happy with their jobs. After you have made a decision and book the time with them, make sure the paperworks are prepared by the service provider in a professional way with the warranty clearly stated.

These are probably the most important criteria that you need to watch out for when hiring an air conditioning installation specialist. The next question is where can you find such company? Ask for referrals from family, friends and relatives if possible as this is probably the best source that you can trust. You can also find these companies from your local area business directory, or find them online by typing Melbourne Air Conditioning and Heating Systems on Google if you live in Melbourne for example.
