Women's health is an important issue for females everywhere, but sometimes our health gets put on the back burner for a variety of reasons. Let's face it, life gets busy - we get overloaded with work, maybe stress, or just struggling with keeping up with our family’s busy schedules. As mothers, it's only natural that we put others first, that's what makes us wonderful caregivers and nurturers.

There are many ways we can take care of ourselves, our bodies are always changing, especially as we get older. From eating healthy and exercising regularly, to heart health and even family planning, it's imperative to take care of your body - after all it's the only one you have.


As a single parent, my children are dependent on me for everything, so I can't afford for something even minor to happen to me. If I get sick my children can't take care of me, so it's important that I take the necessary steps to ensure I am always feeling my best and visiting my Obstetrics & Gynecology or Ob-Gyn for annual well check ups.  

As a woman it's important that we are educated on sexual and reproductive health as well. Every woman should have a great Ob-Gyn, they are designed to provide preventative care and ensure woman's female organs are healthy and operating properly. There are many advantages to visiting a doctor for a well women check on a regular basis, in some cases - your wellness exam could save your life.




Emergency contraception is an important option for women and their family planning efforts. Plan B One-Step is emergency contraception that works mainly by delaying or preventing ovulation - it helps to prevent pregnancy before it begins. Levonorgestrel is the active ingredient in Plan B One-Step, it is the same ingredient in many common birth control pills - but at a higher, single  dose.
Plan B One-Step works better the sooner you take it, it's not an abortion pill and it will not affect an existing pregnancy. With Plan B One-Step, there won't be an impact on your future or long-term fertility either. Plan B One-Step must be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex or birth control failure, and as always, you should take as directed on the packaging.
While shopping at my local Target, I was able to locate Plan B One-Step and purchase it without use of a prescription or an ID and I saved $10 off with this printable coupon found HERE. If you're unable to locate the product within the store, you can always ask the pharmacist and they will be able to help, without any questions asked.

What steps are you taking to be the best and healthiest version of yourself you can be?
