During pregnancy, many women will experience nausea and vomiting – commonly called morning sickness although symptoms may occur at any time of the day. This can be very unpleasant and can disrupt daily life. It usually stops after 16-20 weeks of pregnancy. Treatments for morning sickness can vary, from diet changes to medication.


Contraception is normally used to prevent pregnancy and is available in a variety of forms. Some hormonal contraceptives have other uses, such as treating acne, or to manage the symptoms of conditions like endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Many different types of contraception are available in the UK.


As women age, their hormone levels change, resulting in the gradual decrease and eventual stopping of ovulation and periods. During menopause, these changes can often result in unpleasant symptoms like anxiety, hot flushes, brain fog, lack of attention and irregular periods. There are many ways to manage menopause symptoms.
