Norwalk, Connecticut (PRWEB) January 03, 2012
On January 5th at 12:30 pm EST, Real Women on Health, an on-line women’s health community and radio show, invites women’s health communities and bloggers to this week’s on-line radio show on “Advances in Permanent Birth Control”.
The on-line conversation will be led by Kelley Connors, MPH, Women’s Wellness Advocate and feature Dr. Amy Brenner, Gynecologist, and her patient who will share her “real women” story. The 30-minute on-line radio show will help women make better lifestyle and health-related decisions around birth control options as they confront completing their family.
“The topic is one that reflects national trends towards families with fewer children, but most women are unaware of all the options they have for permanent birth control”, says Kelley Connors, MPH, Founder and Host of Real Women on Health. “We encourage all women and especially health bloggers to listen in or ask questions, so they can inform and inspire others with credible, up-to-date women's health content”.
This topic aligns with key demographic trends, and findings from a recent survey by HealthyWomen, the nation's leading independent health information source for women:
➢ Permanent contraception is the most common form of birth control overall and the most popular type of birth control for women over age 35.
➢ Between the ages of 40 and 44, the percentage of women opting for permanent birth control jumps to nearly 35 percent.
➢ Most women surveyed knew about the existing surgical birth control procedures, but there are other less-invasive solutions that don't require surgery.
Women's health writers and bloggers are invited to join us, ask questions or simply comment. We will give you and your blog a “shout out” on our show and provide you with content for more in-depth writing. Simply e-mail Kelley Connors at Kelley(at)kc-health(dot)com for more information!
The conversation is supported by Conceptus, Inc., maker of Essure®.
