Who Doesn’t Love a Good Mammogram?

A few days ago, I had the, um, pleasure of subjecting myself to one of the many indignities women continually face when taking charge of their health: the lovely mammogram. For those of you who somehow missed the memo, a mammogram is a diagnostic procedure in which each of a woman’s breasts is basically squished [...]

The Inception of the Fertility Awareness Network (FAN) (Part II)

Stuffed and mangled manila envelopes packed with all manner of research studies etc. would only get us so far back in the ‘80s.
