You wanted to know when you should start getting mammograms, and this is an excellent question. All women between the ages of 50 and 74 should get one every 2 years, and this is in the absence of other risk factors or abnormal results in the past. Women who are 40 years of age should start the conversation with their doctor, because maybe there's a family history of it or other risk factors that may warrant getting mammograms earlier, like between the ages of 40 and 50, and not waiting until 50. It's important, no matter how old you are, to be aware and to do regular self breast exams, and if you notice anything abnormal, don't hesitate to bring it up with your doctor.
There's no way to know if what you're feeling is normal or not without having a conversation with them, and hopefully it can just put your mind at ease after talking with them. And best case scenario is that if there is a problem, it's been detected early and there are great treatment options for breast cancer, especially when it's caught in the earlier stages, and that's what it's all about. Breast cancer screening doesn't prevent the disease, but the whole point is that it can be caught early and treated so that you can live a full life with your family.

My period starts september 13 and lasted september 17, 2018. We had unprotected contact last september23, 28 and october 1, 2018. Is there a higher chance or possibility that I'm being pregnant? And I have 32days cycle. Thank you
Hey doc, I’m wondering if I could be pregnant if I had 2 periods since my one sexual encounter? Semen was only ejaculated on me not in me, and the period came late 6 days on day 35 and last month it came 6 late again at 41 days. I only experienced pregnancy symptoms in the first month before they went away, but now 3 months after my sexual encounter my abdomen and breasts are growing and I look 3 months pregnant. I had a negative pregnancy test 2 weeks ago. Help me please?
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
