What is Bacterial Vaginosis?
So .... one day my friend ask me, what is bacterial vaginosis? My doctor called me and state that I have bacterial vaginosis. Should I call my boyfriend and mad at him? Hmmm.... let me google it first... (well... you think as a nurse, you are a walking dictionary? LOL you don't always know everything he he he)
So I ask Mr.Google and I found out that Vaginosis is a mild infection cause by bacteria ... so I told my friend not to accused her boyfriend.... (Hmmm...) Let see... Normally, there are a lot of "good" bacteria and some "bad" bacteria in our Vee jee jeey or Vagina (LOL). The nice ones help control the growth of the bad ones. So for the women who have bacterial vaginosis, there's no balance between the nice ones and the bad ones. Hmmm.... maybe the bad one bullied the nice ones (like me T_T)
Usually this problem will go away by itself but it also can lead to serious problem so it better to see doctor. There's 3 common problems why women get this.... have too much partners or use too much douche or smoke. AHA!!!
What is the symptom? In some women, it might vaginal discharge, maybe white or grayish. Smelly fish especially after sex. But some women no symptom at all. Usually the doctor will do the pelvic exam and taking the sample and send it to the lab.
How to treat this? Usually doctor will give antibiotic either by mouth or capsules that you put in your vagina (it call ovules) or cream.
But for men... don't worry this is NOT STD!!! You guys won't get vaginosis! Come on!! the name is vaginosis!! and you guys don't even have vagina!!! And there's NO Peninosis!!! Use common sense!! LOL!!!
What is meditation? Some people said that meditation is the silent moment. The time when we are not think about anything else. The moment that we separate from this world. The moment for ourselves. Ketut said (from the "Eat, Pray, and Love" Movie), we do meditation with the smile in your mind, smile in your face, and smile in your liver ( well he mean it's your heart <3) coz Liver in Indonesian language mean heart organ ^_^
Some people related meditation to religion or GOD but actually meditation itself is nothing to do with GOD or pray. Meditation is more to yourself. The practice to have a deep peace with yourself so you will have the consciousness and awareness with your mind. Free your mind.
Meditation is hard. Believe me.... Especially for me who always think and who always hear something. Sometimes you have to close your ear and your eyes from this world even from 1 minute,,,, next day try fro 2 minutes... then 3 minutes... so on... until you have peace for yourself.
I will give you the Guide Meditation so you can do it at home .....
Since I was diagnose with the bipolar disorder, my doctor want me to do yoga at least 3-4 times/week. So I look it up online. Some of you probably surprise why I really open about my disease. When the first time I found out about that I was ashamed and scare if nobody want to talk to me anymore or maybe it will ruin my relationship. But again only me can decide if I want to be happy or not. And I decide to be open with it. The people who are scare to be with me because of who I am, the are not worth it to be with me.
So anyway, let's back to the Yoga .... After I look it up online, I found about the Womb Yoga. What is the Womb Yoga? Womb Yoga is the yoga to nourish every aspect of our lives as women, whether we have a womb or not, whether we menstruate, or not, and whether we are mothers, maidens, enchantresses or crones. (Uma Dinsmore-Tuli).
Even men don't have womb, men can also join the womb yoga. Practice the Womb Yoga help us access the inner guidance of our source wisdom so we can be more ready to reside in wellbeing and at peace.
Let's Get to Know Me (Bipolar Disorder)
Maybe you guys thinking why I put that as my title (Let's get to know me) for the Bipolar Disorder? I don't want to hide anything from anybody especially from you guys ...
Yes...Yasss... I do have Bipolar disorder... So let's talk about it...

Ladies... (and maybe some gentlemen who want to know about this), I write this blog especially for you (and also for me). Before I went to the BLOGHER16 and interview Karen (one of the patient with endometriosis) and Doctor Parveen Vahora. I don't really think that endometriosis really serious.
So what is endometriosis? Hmmm... every women have uterus right? And in the normal uterus, there's a tissue that line inside it (it called endometrium). BUT.. in women who have endometriosis, that endometrium / tissue lining outside the uterus, it can be in the ovary, fallopian tube, even in the bowel (IMAGINE how painful it will be???)
This will cause pain (Duh !! of course!!) and problem with the menstruation. Some women will experience the inflammation of this endometriosis or even bleeding and it will make it difficult to get pregnant.
But don't worry... fortunately there's treatment available for this :) ...
Usually MD will offer you the pain medication first before they offer you to get the surgery. Hormone therapy also sometimes used by MD to relieve pain for the patient's with endometriosis.
Hmmm..... How do I know if I have endometriosis or not? This are some signs and symptoms so you can decide whether you need to see your MD or not yet :
Now you know what is endometriosis, what is the sign and symptoms, and what are the treatments available for it. But what should you do if you still waiting for your MD appointment? And in the meantime you have a lot of pain?
Great! You know now that endometriosis is serious but this is treatable. Even though nobody know why and how this happen? Some people said it's because the retrograde menstruation, the blood go backward to the fallopian tube (huh?!) or the surgical scar (the scar from the surgical attach to the endometrial cell) or even immune system disorder (in the other word, because this immune system have some "disorder" so this is become stupid, can't recognize that this endometrium cell is inside or outside uterus).
But again... nobody know what the real cause of it. The important thing is this is treatable! That's it!! Thanks GOD! Ok,Ladies! I hope this information help you understand what is Endometriosis and when you need to seek help.
