Birth Control Breakthrough or “Promiscuity Pill?”
A new FDA-approved pill is creating a sexual controversy since it can be used up to five days after engaging in unprotected sex or experiencing contraceptive failure.
OB-GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson explains how the anti-progestin pill, similar to other emergency contraception pills, works to thin the uterine lining to prevent attachment, block estrogen and halt or delay ovulation; however, it does not protect against the risk of STDs from having unprotected intercourse.
Opponents of the new pill argue that it may prompt promiscuous behavior in some women and question if it terminates a pregnancy. “This is not an abortifacient pill,” Dr. Lisa says. She stresses that the pill should only be used as an emergency contraceptive.
She adds that the pill also comes with negative side effects, which include nausea, headaches, dizziness and stomachaches, so it’s not something to take lightly or rely on frequently to prevent pregnancy.

How to Spice Up Your Marriage
Deb and Ken have been married for 12 years and have two children. Although they are still deeply in love, their sex life was reduced when Deb was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2009.
Deb underwent chemotherapy had a double mastectomy performed to eradicate the cancer. In addition, because her cancer was 99 percent estrogen receptor positive, a hysterectomy was also performed.
“I had to have a radical hysterectomy that throws you into menopause,” Deb explains. “It makes having intercourse painful.”
“I need to give her a lot of advanced notice,” Ken says. “Spontaneous sex is not something that we can really engage in.”
“I know a lot of women who are really happy in sexless marriages. I am not one of those women,” Deb says. “Cancer and all the resulting treatments and surgeries I had have taken away a lot from Ken and I. We are determined that it’s not going to take our love for each other and our sex life.”
“Kama movement is a combination of some elements of yoga, Pilates and sensual dance, and what we work on is our most problematic female fat zones,” says Kama Movement Founder Halyna Skrypnk.
