Pregnancy & Baby Care

Am I pregnant? What should I be eating? Is it normal to be this tired? Whatever you want to know about getting pregnant, being pregnant or caring for your new baby, you should find it here.

Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. About 48,000 women get breast cancer in Britain each year. Most (eight out of 10) are over 50, but younger women, and in rare cases, men, can also get breast cancer.

HRT and the Menopause

There is a lot of misinformation about hormone replacement therapy (HRT). While there are some risks, many women find it dramatically eases their menopause symptoms.

Is Your Blood Pressure Healthy?

It's thought that around 30% of people in England have high blood pressure, and many don't even know it. Though more than half of them are over 60, a large number are younger. Could you be one of them?

Can Trans Women get Prostate Cancer?

Trans people who were assigned Male at Birth and Male-assigned Non-binary people can get Prostate Cancer or Prostate Disease. This includes Trans Women (or Transgender Women or Transsexual Women) who identify and live as Women.

If you are a Trans Woman or Male-assigned Non-binary person, you will have a Prostate, regardless of whether you have had Genital Reconstructive Surgery or not.

You may have heard that Trans Women who are on Hormone Therapy (e.g. Oestrogen) won't get Prostate Cancer or that the chance of developing it is lower. There is not enough evidence to say either way. Trans Women who have been taking Feminising Hormones are still at risk of Prostate Cancer.
