  1. STIs don’t care about grey hair and wrinkles

    Comment
    Article by Fabafterfifty The sexual health charity FPA has warned of rising sexually transmitted infection (STI) rates and poor sexual health in groups of men and women aged over 50. This is going unnoticed, says FPA, because despite the over 50s being sexually active and starting new sexual relationships, campaigns and services are only targeted at the young. Almost 13,000 men and women over the age of 45 were diagnosed with an STI in 2009, double the numbers in 2000. Last year more men over 45 got genital herpes than 16–19 year old men and over 5,000 men and women over 45 were diagnosed with genital warts in 2009 alone. Chlamydia diagnosis in women has also gone up 95% in nine years. And calls to the FPA helpline have shot up...
  2. Breast Cancer – 5 Point Plan to be Breast Aware

    Comment
    Every year 46,000 women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer. That’s one person every 11 minutes. 80% of breast cancers occur in women over 50. The good news is that breast cancer survival rates are improving – probably as a result of improved treatment and earlier detection. So how do I check my breasts? There is no right or wrong way to check your breasts. Try to get used to looking and feeling your breasts regularly. Remember to check all parts of your breast, your armpits and up to your collarbone. What changes should I look and feel  for? •    Changes in size or shape •    Changes in skin texture such as puckering or dimpling •    Inverted nipple •    A lump or thickening of breast tissue •    Redness or a rash on the skin/around...
  3. Mid-life dating: sex with someone new

    Comment
    Aricle written  by Christine Webber, psychotherapist and life coach Many SWOFties are seeking new partners and reigniting their love lives. If you cast your mind back to before you lost your virginity, the chances are that you were anxious about it. Getting sexually active again, after a break, can feel equally nerve-racking. But, take heart. Basically the act hasn’t changed since you last did it! And hopefully you’ll fit well with your new lover, and you’ll have a good time. In 2010, there are so many mid-life, single women that the Department for Work and Pensions has given them their own acronym – SWOFties (single women over fifty). And lots of SWOFties are seeking new partners and reigniting their love lives. Isn’t it great that so many of us of ‘a certain...
  4. Women and Heart Disease

    1
    Article by Fabafterfifty Cardiovascular disease kills as many women as it does men – that’s one in three men as well as one in three women. Cardiovascular disease, or CVD for short, means all the diseases of the heart and circulation, including coronary heart disease (angina and heart attack) and stroke. The facts about women and heart disease • Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the single most common cause of death for women in the UK. • CHD kills 3 times more women than breast cancer. • There are over 1 million women in the UK living with CHD. Considering these figures, it’s worrying that some women don’t realise heart disease could happen to them. ...
