Discusses Women's Health

I was elated to see the very thoughtful editorial in the January 2 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine. Like many of you, I have relied on the news to get information about the cases being brought to the Supreme Court in which for-profit corporations argue that their “religious rights” are being infringed…

Every once in a while you’ll see a “how awful” media story about a young woman who had a stroke or clot in her lungs that was ostensibly caused by oral contraceptive pills (OCPs). Lawyers are suing, OCP users are scared and I get lots of calls from concerned patients and parents. And then there…

I know this is the Fourth of July weekend and many of my patients and readers will be busy with family, barbecues and hopefully celebrating the independence of the fabulous country we live in. (And, of course, there are those wonderful sales!). But if you happen to be glancing at this website, I want to…

I have obsessively discussed the positive health aspects of the various forms of contraception in my newsletters over the past few years. (Clearly a part of my Planned Parenthood background!) I have also proclaimed gender health success when the Affordable Care Act (ACA) stated that after August 1, 2012, preventive health services recommended by the…

As I leave for a brief vacation over the holiday, I wonder (as do most Americans) what’s going to happen to that impending fiscal cliff. Somehow, I reassure myself our divided congress will get this settled. But I am less complacent about the outcome for healthcare in the year and years to come. Just before…

Recently, a mother brought her adolescent daughter to my office for advice about  menstrual migraine therapy. After I made my suggestions, I thought it might be timely to give a few “notes” (I sound like a producer) for the website regarding the causes of and treatments for this debilitating disorder. Migraine headaches are unfortunately very…

As I sat down to write this newsletter, I felt that I did not have a favorite new article to use for an update. So rather than leave a blank newsletter this week, I thought I might re-issue one that I wrote for MSNBC several years ago. (There is nothing like quoting oneself!) It dealt…

We could ask our kids (rarely works), speak to the school administrators (they are probably the last to know),  read Seventeen and Cosmo or just look with despair at the promiscuous styles offered to and requested by young girls (and boys). In my perusal of journals, I found a fascinating study which addresses this question….

Your daughter comes to see me…she has a boyfriend or perhaps already had one (or, and I know this is hard, several). She may be going off to college and she (or you) want to make sure she is prepared, not just with books or the latest in fashion, but with birth control. You probably…

Once upon a time most of us moved here, to LA, from other states or countries. And we love it!  As veteran Los Angelinos we live, work and of course, look at others in this, our youth and media oriented city. The inevitable follows: we would like to look like a celebrity worthy of an…
