TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – The Women’s Services Department at Tempe St. Luke’s Hospital is hosting a free open house to raise awareness about women’s health issues.

“Between raising kids, running their households and nurturing successful careers, women are notorious for putting themselves and their health on the bottom of their to-do lists, if they even make it onto the list at all,” said Dr. Manisha A. Purohit at Tempe St. Luke’s Hospital. “To take better care of themselves and their families, women need to be self-aware of their unique health needs at every life stage, along with the actions they can take now to ensure a long and healthy life.”

The open house, which will take place on Thursday, Nov. 9, from 5- 7 p.m., will offer giveaways, spa experiences, and refreshments. Attendees will also be able to receive free flu shots on a first-come, first-served basis.

“From a young woman thinking of starting a family to an older adult experiencing menopause, women’s health needs vary greatly,” said Dr. Purohit. “Our goal is to help answer some of the common questions, provide tools and resources they can use, and demystify some of the important screenings available.”

At the event, women will be able to learn about important women’s health issues such as pregnancy care, sudden infant death syndrome, gynecological surgery, breast exams, and 3D ultrasounds.

Women will also be able to receive free car seat safety checks by the Tempe Police Department in an effort to provide women with resources to help not only themselves but also their families.

What’s normal? It’s the question that sits in the back of most everyone’s mind – whether the topic’s a salary or an exercise habit. Normalcy is the baseline against which we measure ourselves in all departments. It makes sense that so many women seeking infertility treatment here in Mesa and Tempe want to know, “When’s the right time – the normal time – to get professional care?” [click to continue…]

What Causes Infertility?

The CDC estimates there are around 6.7 million women between the ages of 15 and 44 with “impaired fecundity,” or – in other words – the “impaired ability to get pregnant or carry a baby to term.” This large number represents nearly 11 percent of all women in that age group in the United States. Given the complexity of the human reproductive system (in both women and men), it can sometimes seem like the number of possible causes of infertility can approach this daunting figure.

Your mother, sister, or girlfriends may have given you some idea of what you can expect with regards to menopause symptoms. But, if you’re like many women, the topic of perimenopause rarely comes up.
