As the kiddos head back to school, an important reminder that it is highly recommended to get the flu vaccine each year. Pregnant women are encouraged to get the vaccine to protect themselves and pass those antibodies to their baby. Pregnant women can get the vaccine at any stage of pregnancy. Postpartum women can also get the vaccine even if they are breastfeeding.

Between the drama of homework, sports, other activities, and having a social life, many teens feel overwhelmed and don’t get enough sleep. Sleep is a very important component ofyour health. Your body works best when you get enough sleep. A lack of sleep makes it hard to concentrate and perform your best at sports and other activities. Studies show that not getting enough sleep slows down reaction time and affects the ability to concentrate while driving.
Teens need about 9 hours of sleep a night and adults need slightly less (7-9 hours each night).
11 Tips to Follow:
Long Term Reversible Contraception (LARC) is the new and easy way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Contracpetion has traditionally been thought of as taking a pill every day. This can be very hard to remember for young, healthy women, or busy new Moms. If you forget to take the pill, then there is a risk of becoming pregnant. There are new devices available that can be placed in the body for 3 years, 5 years, or 10 years or longer. One type is the intrauterine device (IUD). There is the new Skyla IUD for 3 years. The Mirena IUD lasts for 5 years. Both decrease bleeding as well as prevent pregnancy. The Paraguard IUD is hormone free, and lasts 10 years or longer. The most popular for our young patients is the subdermal implant, Nexplanon. The Nexplanon device is placed under the skin on the inside of the arm. It helps decrease bleeding and No Pelvic Exam needed! The Nexplanon lasts for 3 years. It is perfect for ladies in school that want to get through Prom and Graduation without all the Drama! Call our office today to make an appointment to discuss these Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) today!
