What if I have an abnormal Pap test?
If your latest Pap test results came back positive, it does not mean you have cervical cancer. It does mean your doctor found some unusual or abnormal cells on your cervix that will likely require further evaluation.
Why you should schedule your mammogram today

Ask Sofia: What is a healthy menstrual cycle?
You’re probably not surprised to hear that your menstrual cycle can affect everything from your mood to your sleep, and your energy to your appetite. While there is no “perfect” period, a normal menstrual cycle—the first day of one cycle to the first day of the next—will range from about 25 to 35 days and may shift as we age. Naturally, birth control, pregnancies and peri-menopause can also change the length and symptoms of your cycle.
Ask Sofia: Why do I have bleeding between periods?
While many women experience spotting or intermittent bleeding between periods, it can be both confusing and concerning.
All About Uterine Prolapse
Uterine prolapse is often something women don’t hear or know much about until it happens to them. When the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments – which support the uterus – stretch out and grow weaker, the uterus can slip into or protrude out of the vagina. You may not even know you have a mild prolapse, which often doesn’t require treatment, but more pronounced cases can lead to discomfort and require more extensive intervention.
