Tip of the Month
Want to lose weight, but your always finding yourself eating candy bars and drinking sodas from the vending machine at work?
A friend of mine is always complaining that it is impossible to stick to a diet because she is always heading to the vending machines at work or running to the nearest fast food joint for sheer convenience. Here are some tips to avoid making the wrong snack/lunch choices at work:
Question of the Month
Q. How can I stop/start my period when I want to because I have a special event coming up and don't want to be on it?
A. There have been A LOT of ladies asking how to basicly manipulate their period for the sake of convenience. Example: pool party, wedding, vacation, planned
I must warn all of you, that it is NOT okay to try to manipulate your period just for the sake of convenience. Many of you want to do this by taking too much or too little birth control and not following the dosage instructions given to you by your doctor. You think that it's okay to take more or less just to manipulate your period. It is unhealthy and dangerous to do this! Not only are you throwing off your body's menstrual cycle which performs best at a constant repetative rate, but you could also be damaging your body or could over dose on your birth control. Messing with your period could leave you with negative symptoms such as cramping, spotting, and severe mood swings. It could also make it difficult to get your cycle on track.
Trust me ladies,leave your period alone. Only take your birth control as prescribed.
