Staying Strong

This past week was National Women's Health Week!  I want to talk for a second about how important it is for women to take their yearly trip to the doctor and make sure all is well with our bodies.  

Below you will find an awesome infographic that can serve as your guide to women's health.  It reminds you when you should get checked out and what you should be doing to make sure that you're healthy. 

Personally, I go into my lady doctor every year.  However unpleasant it might be, I think it's worth it. We always talk about my birth control and make sure that we both think what I'm using works for me, I always get a pelvic exam :P a breast exam, and whatever else I need.  Because I'm in the Army, I also do a once yearly physical with them.  Because of these preventative measures, if there were something wrong with me, we'd catch it! Chances of surviving a potentially fatal...anything are going to go up with early detection!  

So don't forget to head into the doctor and get your yearly check ups! Find out more about the check-ups you need with the graphic from  Oscar Insurance

PS...Sorry if the graphic is a little small.  I'm still trying to figure out my new computer and that occasionally means that I can't figure out how to make things bigger or smaller...I'll get the hang of it eventually I suppose. If you're interested, you can check out more on Oscar's health insurance services if you're in the NY and NJ areas!

On another note, you should be seeing more of me around here.  I'm still getting settled in at home and trying to figure out a bit of a routine and so far that routine has not included blogging. I have a lot of work to do around this house so that I can make all my crap fit inside of it.  So maybe I'll just blog about it. We'll see!

So don't panic if you don't hear much from me.  Life is just a challenge when it's constantly changing, and unfortunately, sometimes something must go.  For me, blogging may have to be put on the shelf for a few weeks.

Please don't cry.

It's so important to take care of yourself and I try to do the same. Unfortunately with all of our infertility struggles I see my doctor a little more than normal but I'm also grateful for that. I hope you are able to get settled and into a new routine. :)

It really is so important! I think a lot of people just don't think about it like they should.
