AUGUST 2016 NEWSLETTER

Send Your Children Back to School Protected from Serious Diseases

National Immunization Awareness Month is a reminder that we all need vaccines throughout our lives. 

Back-to-school season is here. It’s time for parents to gather school supplies and back packs. It’s also the perfect time to make sure your children are up to date on their vaccines. 

To celebrate the importance of immunizations for people of all ages, and make sure children are protected with all the vaccines they need as they go back to school, Somi Javaid MD & Associates is joining with partners nationwide in recognizing August as National Immunization Awareness Month. 

Getting children all of the vaccines recommended by CDC’s immunization schedule is one of the most important things parents can do to protect their children from serious diseases. If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to check with your child’s doctor to find out what vaccines your child needs.

Vaccines protect against a number of serious and potentially life-threatening diseases. 

When children are not vaccinated, they are at increased risk for diseases and can also spread diseases to others in their classrooms and community, including babies who are too young to be fully vaccinated, and people with weakened immune systems due to cancer or other health conditions. 

Talk to your child’s doctor to find out which vaccines are recommended for them before going back to school. 

Parents can find out more about the recommended vaccines at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/ .

 

Educational Spotlight: What is Mirena?

Mirena is a T-shaped hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) that's inserted into the uterus for long-term birth control. Mirena effectively thickens mucus in the cervix to prevent sperm from reaching or fertilizing an egg. Mirena also thins the uterine wall and inhibits ovulation. 

FDA approved Mirena offers many benefits.  According to the Mayo Clinic, Mirena:

  • Eliminates the need to interrupt sex for contraception
  • Doesn't require partner participation
  • Can remain in place for up to five years
  • Can be removed at any time, followed by a quick return to baseline fertility
  • Decreases menstrual bleeding after at least several months of use
  • Decreases severe menstrual pain and pain related to endometriosis
  • Decreases the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease caused by sexually transmitted infections (STIs) by causing the cervical mucus to thicken, creating a barrier against bacteria
  • Decreases the risk of endometrial cancer and possibly cervical cancer
  • Can be used while breast-feeding — though the recommendation is to wait at least six weeks after childbirth
  • Doesn't carry the risk of side effects related to birth control methods containing estrogen

To learn more or to find out if you are a good candidate for Mirena, call Dr. Javaid at 513-404-4166.
