When you think of winter, exercising may not be the first thing that pops into your brain. You’re more likely to think about things like steaming soups, mugs of hot chocolate, and bundling up by the fire.

But working out is especially important during the wintertime. Not only does it help relieve stress—a common thing to encounter during the busy holiday season—but it also keeps you focused on your fitness goals. You won’t slip back into old habits or regress in your health goals like so many other people do during this season.

So, strap on your hat, stick your hands in some gloves, and get ready to enjoy working out in the cold. Here are the best ways to staying active during the winter.

Get Outside

One of the most challenging parts about staying active during the winter is the low temps. However, as long as the weather isn’t extremely low, you should still take the time to bundle up and spend some time outside. That might mean keeping up your daily walks during the workday, taking a quick jog around the block, or visiting your local park with your family.

Whatever you can do, do it. Both your mind and body will thank you!

Find an Online Exercise Class

Online workout classes are fantastic for many reasons.

  1. They’re awesome for fitting exercise into your busy schedule, which is significantly harder during this season due to the shorter days and countless holiday to-dos.
  2. Exploring online options opens up a world of possibilities to find the specific types of classes that are harder to track down in physical gyms.
  3. These types of courses are often much cheaper than their in-person counterparts. Who couldn’t stand to save some money around the holiday season?

Grab an Accountability Partner

If you know you’re struggling to keep up your exercise regimen during the cold winter months, reach for a friend or loved one to help kick you into gear. There’s no motivation better than having an accountability partner to cheer on all your successes, help pick you back up during your setbacks, or to let you know you’re not alone during this difficult, cold period.

Spend Your Weekends Wisely

If you work a traditional 9-to-5 job, having the time and motivation to hit the gym after work when it’s already starting to get dark may be impossible. That’s where the weekends come in! Make plans to do something physical AND fun each weekend. That might mean a family hike, find a festive holiday activity (ice skating, Christmas light hunting, etc.) to enjoy, or even just a long morning walk around your neighborhood.

No matter what you choose, focus on getting outside and being active during your winter weekends.

Winter may be filled with holiday cheer for some people, but for others, the dark, cold, and dreary weather is almost too much to bear. When the weather contributes to feelings of depression or sadness, this is called seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

About 16 million people in the United States are expected to have an episode of major depression this year, and about five percent of those people will experience it because of the weather. Even worse? Women are most likely to experience seasonal affective disorder, with about four in five women stating they have experienced SAD before.

If you or someone you know is experiencing the winter blues, know you’re not alone. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get through this holiday season with positive mental health.

Spend Time Outside

Often the cold, short winter days are the last time of the year you want to spend time out of the house. In order to fight against seasonal depression, it’s crucial to spend quality time outside. In fact, the more you do it, the more your mind and body will benefit.

If you’re not sure how to get outside this winter, here are a few ideas:

  • Take walk breaks during work.
  • Grab some loved ones and go for a hike during the day when the sun is still out.
  • Park further away from work or the stores to give yourself a longer walk.
  • Walk around the block at your house before going inside for the night to relax.

Don’t Slack on Your Nutrition

The holidays are filled with rich comfort food and large holiday feasts. But just because you may have a few splurges coming up doesn’t mean you need to totally drop all of the nutritious and healthy eating habits you’ve built up.

This is especially true when you consider that diet contributes to mental health. Don’t want to give up the joy of yummy, cold-weather comfort food? Find a good, hearty soup recipe with high protein and lots of veggies.

Keep Exercising

Similarly, it might be tempting during this season to slack on exercising habits. As the temperature drops, all we want to do is cuddle up next to the fire under blankets. However, just like keeping up your healthy diet, maintaining your fitness routine during this time of year is one of the best ways to stay happy and healthy.

If You Need Extra Help with Winter Blues, Get It

In addition to the suggestions mentioned above, there are other ways you can give your brain the support it needs this time of year.

  • Vitamin D supplements can give you the boost you’d normally get directly from the sun.
  • Communicate with your loved ones that you’re struggling. They can pitch in to help boost your spirits when you are feeling particularly low.
  • If things are really bad for you this winter, don’t feel ashamed to reach out to your general physician or a psychiatrist to learn about medication and therapy to help balance your seasonal depression.

Differences, Barriers to Access, and What We’re Doing to Help

LGBTQIA community members often face major obstacles to receiving fair treatment and access to healthcare. Tragically, OBGYN services are no exception to this serious issue. At Avant Gynecology, we recognize the importance of correcting this harmful trend and effort towards making our offices a safe space for all.

Keep reading to learn more about this topic and how members of the LGBTQIA community can get access to the quality services they need and deserve.

Different Experiences, Different Needs

No matter what they are, your sexual orientation and gender identity play an important role in the type of gynecology care you need.

Access to services like gender reconstruction, assistance with sperm transplants, different STD/STI prevention methods, and hormonal imbalance treatments are all examples of services needed for this community. At Avant Gynecology, we’re happy to discuss and assist with all of your gynecology needs. However, at this time, our office does not offer hormonal treatments. However, our expert staff is happy to refer you to someone in the area that you can trust.

Finding Allies in the Medical World

For many LGBTQ+ community members, a lot of anxiety understandably surrounds going to the doctor. After all, you’ve already faced many obstacles in the real world when it comes to receiving the care, love, and respect you deserve, and this can certainly be true at the doctor’s office.

Because of this, we understand scheduling appointments and finding a doctor you can trust may come with serious stress and anxiety. Unfortunately, this can lead to individuals avoiding annual exams and potentially more health complications.

The way to overcome this is communication and self-care best practices. When calling to make an appointment, ask the practice up-front if they support, or even specialize in, working with the LGBTQ+ community. Over-communicate with your doctor about what makes you comfortable, and even bring a friend or partner to your appointment to help support you.

While Avant Gynecology does not currently have staff who specialize in LGBTQ+ treatment, we are proud to treat the needs of all patients who come through our doors in a safe, judgment-free environment. We are also happy to direct patients to outside resources for related, but more specialized needs.

If you are a member of the LGBTQ+ community in need of safe gynecological care, we invite you to schedule an appointment with our team today.

A natural part of growing older is becoming less active. Life gets busier, natural energy levels fluctuate, and even general enjoyment around physical activities can wane. Regardless, it’s important to keep up active habits and find ways to enjoy this important part of living a long, healthy life. Keep reading below to learn why women should stay active, no matter their age.

The benefits of being active:

  • Stressed all the time? Exercising adds to your serotonin level. This chemical decreases the amount of stress you feel and makes room for more fun and positive emotions.
  • Increased exercising also has been proven to improve women’s sexual response and desire.
  • Physical activity helps your digestive system break down food.
  • Regular exercise boosts the part of your brain called the ventral prefrontal cortex, which makes decision making and emotional processing much easier.
  • Exercising also helps the hippocampus work better, which improves your memory. In the same vein, staying active also helps to slow down and prevent cognitive decline from diseases like Alzheimer’s.
  • Dealing with adult acne? Working out helps to reduce the hormones that produce acne. In fact, the more you sweat, the more you unclog your pores.
  • The more you exercise the better you sleep. Working out helps you feel better rested, gets you to sleep faster, and helps you remain asleep.
  • Exercising regularly also goes hand in hand with better self-confidence.
  • Exercise has been connected to a decreased likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and mental illnesses like anxiety or depression.
  • You improve your overall life quality and length of life when you exercise regularly.

Not sure where to start?

Lacking inspiration on how to remain active? We’ve got some tips and tricks to help you get started.

  • Cardio is an absolute must for your exercise regimen. Regularly engaging in cardio keeps your heart and lungs healthy, plus also benefits your bones and joints. If you hate the idea of running, there are plenty of other easy ways to get your heart pumping. Dancing, biking, tennis, walking, hiking, and swimming are a few great examples.
  • Also, include strengthening and muscle toning in your schedule. Doing so keeps your weight in check, strengthens your overall body, and keeps your bones strong. Grab some weights, head to your local gym to work with their machines, or use your own body weight to get started (push-ups, lunges, etc.).
  • Stretching is often overlooked but it’s vital for building healthier muscles, improving overall balance, and keeping joint pain to a minimum. If you have time every morning and evening to stretch, do it. If not, try to regularly engage in activities like yoga and pilates. Plus, the more you work on your balance, the less likely you are to fall.

The medical term for lack of sexual desire is hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). This condition is extremely common. In fact, one-third of women ages 18 to 59 report having low sexual desire. However, this condition can be very tricky to diagnose and treat since “low sexual desire” can be defined very differently from person to person. For that reason, the official definition is when someone experiences a significant decrease in sexual desire that has an impact on their emotional quality of life and relationships.

If this is something you or your partner are dealing with, know that you’re not alone. Keep reading below to learn the basics of this condition, including causes and treatment options.


There are a wide variety of possible causes of HSDD. Below are some of the most common.

  • Relationship issues
  • Age
  • Big changes in life, such as losing a loved one or having a child
  • Outside stress
  • Mental illnesses such as depression or anxiety
  • Medical diseases such as endometriosis or fibroids
  • Societal standards
  • Certain medications
  • Low testosterone
  • Extreme self-consciousness.
  • Past influences, such as trauma
  • Menopause

Treatment Options

The good news is that there are many treatment options available for women who want to change their low sexual drive. Here are some of the most common:

  • Lifestyle changes could be all you need to do. This could mean starting to exercise, working on stress management, cutting out bad habits like smoking, or working with your partner to set aside time for intimacy.
  • If you’re dealing with untreated mental or physical disorders (depression, anxiety, chronic pain, etc.), addressing those conditions can often have a positive impact on your sexual drive as well.
  • Talk therapy focused on intimacy is also an option. Especially if your partner and you are both struggling with low sexual desire, a therapist is a fantastic resource to lean on to improve your situation together as a couple.
  • Medication is also available. Don’t be afraid to discuss the issue with your physician and see if there are any medications that can help. Examples include hormone replacement therapy, natural supplements, vaginal lubricants and moisturizers, an FDA-approved oral medication (Addyi) and a new FDA-approved subcutaneous injection (Vyleesi).

Hormones impact women in multiple different ways. Hidden from sight and working away inside, these substances that exist in the tissue and fluids can directly change women’s weight, energy levels, mood, and food cravings. 

While hormones can be complicated and impact a wide scope of women’s health, the experts at Avant Gynecology are here to help explain the basics of women’s hormones.

What are Women’s Hormones? 

Hormones are chemical messengers produced by certain glands in the body and then released into the bloodstream. These tiny parts of our body impact most, if not all, of our bodily functions. Women are especially prone to be affected by hormone fluctuations due to their chemical makeup. In fact, many stages of women’s lives are defined by what their hormones are doing. Examples of this include puberty, PMS, and menopause. 

The two most well-known women’s hormones are estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen is produced by the adrenal glands, fat cells, and ovaries. Estrogen first appears during puberty and severely impacts the reproductivity and sexual development of women. Progesterone is created by the ovaries, adrenal glands, and placenta. The amount found in a woman increases during ovulation but is also found in great numbers during pregnancy. It helps to create stable menstrual cycles and also prepare the body for pregnancy. 

However, there are many more hormones that are produced in women’s bodies. For example, vitamin D controls calcium consumption and bone growth. Oxytocin affects labor, breastfeeding, and bonding. 

Overall, there are countless chemical messengers doing hard work behind the scenes for women. To learn the full list and what all they do for your bodies, click here to read more

Common Issues with Women’s Hormones

Nearly half of all women experience issues with hormonal imbalance. Unfortunately, sometimes the problems they cause may not seem obvious. While trying to discover what is wrong, doctors may guess other complications before realizing hormones are the cause. 

Here are some of the most common issues women experience when their hormones are imbalanced:

  • Irregular periods 
  • Poor sleep quality 
  • Acne
  • Brain fog
  • Gastrointestinal issues, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, and constipation
  • Mood swings
  • Headaches
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Low sex drive
  • Infertility 
  • Unstable blood sugar
  • Mental health issues
  • Changes in weight
  • Breast cancer

This long list is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to issues that hormones can cause. That’s why it’s vital to keep track of any medical issues you may be experiencing and then communicate them both to your general physician and gynecologist. They will be able to ensure that your hormones are functioning properly and can provide a treatment plan that will work best for you if they aren’t.

The diet industry is complex and ever-changing. There are countless fad diets claiming to be the key to weight loss. However, many of them come with hidden complications and even serious risks.

We’re breaking down some important guidelines for anyone navigating the overwhelming world of dieting.

Do Your Research

Before you commit to any major diet or nutritional plan, it’s important to do your research. You will need to understand the nutritional value of what you’re consuming, what you’ll be leaving out, and how it will affect your overall health and body. Taking this first step will help you properly assess your various options and decide what’s best for you.

After you’ve done your own research, it’s also very important to consult your primary care doctor. They will be able to share their assessment of the plan from a holistic, medical perspective.

Be Aware of Dieting Fads and Myths

Another benefit of doing research is to help to identify dangerous diet fads and myths. For example, while the very popular “Keto diet” may work for some, this high-fat, low-carb plan has actually increased heart issues for others. Similarly, the claims that a “juice cleanse” can clean your colon and reset your appetite is inaccurate and a dangerous way to lose weight.

The key to identifying an unhealthy diet trend is finding credible sources that have reviewed the plan’s safety and efficacy. If you can’t but are still eager to try it, speak with your primary care physician for a tailored assessment.

Aim for a Balanced Diet

No diet is as good as just eating a healthy mix of the key food groups. If you’re looking for somewhere to start, the US Department of Health has a “Dietary Guide for Americans” that is backed by medical research.

If you’re looking for a quicker take on keeping a balanced diet, here are some suggestions:

  • Avoid over-processed, salty, and sugary foods.
  • Eat more fresh veggies and fruits.
  • Make sure to add protein to your diet in the form of chicken, turkey, and other non-red meat-based options.
  • Dairy is also good, but make sure to try your best to avoid options overloaded with sugar.
  • Don’t totally toss out carbs. Carbs are healthy too! Just pick healthier options, like brown rice or oatmeal over white rice and bread.
  • If you can avoid all the bad stuff, that is great. But don’t kill yourself taking away all your favorite comforts and snacks. Remember to enjoy eating too!
  • Another key is eating healthier is portions. Eat your favorite snacks and guilty pleasures with controlled portions, and they can still be in your life.

If you’re struggling to identify and maintain a healthy diet, know you’re not alone. With rampant misinformation, tough social pressures, and expensive grocery lists to contend with, sometimes professional help is needed. Don’t be afraid to speak with your primary care physician, or even reach out to a nutritionist to see if they can help develop the best plan for you.

Our mission at Avant Gynecology is to provide exceptional, compassionate care to women at every stage of their lives. If you would like to meet with any of our expert gynecologists about dieting, click here to schedule an appointment today or call us at (404) 352-2850.

Fertility issues affect more families than you might think. In fact, out of 100 couples in the United States, about 12 to 13 of them have trouble getting pregnant. If you’re dealing with infertility, know that you are not alone and there are fertility treatment options available.

Treatment Options for Both Men and Woman

If assisted reproductive technology is required for pregnancy, meaning both the egg and sperm are worked with to create a pregnancy, there are multiple ways to do so. Here are some of the most common types of assisted reproductive technology:

  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) happens when sperm is injected into a mature egg directly.
  • If the couple’s egg or sperm is not able to produce the baby itself, a donor egg or donor sperm may be used to help stimulate what cannot happen naturally.
  • When the embryo is implanted into the uterus, this is called assisted hatching. It requires opening the outer covering of the embryo to do so.
  • A gestational carrier may be needed if a woman is not able to carry the baby herself, whether that be because they don’t have an operating uterus or if other health issues make pregnancy risky for the mom. A gestational carrier carries the egg and sperm for the couple.

Fertility Treatments for Women

For women facing infertility, there are countless treatment options. The most common ones are as follows:

  • If a woman is having issues with ovulation, there are multiple fertility drugs available, whether they are to help regular ovulation or to induce it.
  • Endometrial polyp, scar tissue, endometriosis, fibroids, and uterine septum are several examples of medical illnesses that require a woman to have surgery in order to fix her infertility.
  • Intrauterine insemination occurs when healthy sperm is placed directly into the uterus after the ovary releases eggs, helping to aid in the success rate of pregnancy.

Fertility Treatments for Men

If a man is struggling with infertility, here are the treatment options most common:

  • Certain medications that improve testicular function, sperm count, pregnancy success, and sperm quality are often prescribed to men struggling with infertility.
  • Lifestyle changes might also increase the chance of pregnancy. Some of these options include cutting back on drinking or smoking, exercising more, stopping medications that interfere with reproductivity, increasing the amount of sex in the relationship, and eating a healthier diet.
  • Surgery may be required to reverse issues like sperm blockage or repairing a varicocele.
  • If there are issues with sperm and ejaculation, then sperm retrieval is another common treatment resource, in which the sperm is retrieved manually to put with the egg to create the baby. There are multiple ways to receive sperm and multiple ways to use it once it has been retrieved. You can read more about this option here.

If you are facing infertility, Avant Gynecology is here to help. Click here to schedule an appointment today or call us at (404) 352-2850 to discuss fertility treatment options.

While it’s true that women are capable of doing anything and everything, there are some physical exercises that are better suited for our goals and our bodies. Plus, if you are just getting started on your physical fitness journey, it’s good to start off with exercises and activities that will give you the most bang for your buck when it comes to your body type.

Just like with anything else, there is no one size fits all for exercise. Before committing to any type of exercise, make sure to do the proper research beforehand and consult with your doctor.

But if you’d like to learn about the best exercises for women with your goals and skills in mind, then keep reading!

Best Cardio Options for Women

You’ll notice that this list will be pretty identical to a list of cardio options for any other gender or identity. But if you’re looking for a new idea for cardio or need help with figuring out where to begin, here are some fantastic options:

  • Running: Running is a great and fun way to get your heart racing. But did you know there are other benefits to running? Going for regular jogs burns plenty of calories, builds better cardiovascular capacity, adds muscular endurance, and gives you more energy the more you do it. Plus, it can be a fun–and super affordable–way to explore nature or your local neighborhood.
  • Professional Classes: Have you always wanted to try Zumba? Or maybe some HITT exercises? Then head over to your local gym and see what kind of professional classes they offer. Or maybe subscribe to a kickboxing gym if that’s something you’ve always wanted to try. Anything that gets you up and going on a regular basis is a great place to start.
  • Yoga: Yoga has grown in popularity in the past years, and it’s no wonder why. Yoga is fantastic for not only getting your heart pumping, but it can also tone your muscles and provide a more positive mentality. And, great news: you have lots of options to add yoga to your daily practice. You can either sign up a local yoga studio and plan your schedule around that, or you can pick any video from the countless options on YouTube or Google.
  • Move more: It’s hard to find the time to exercise daily or even weekly when you’re a busy woman constantly on the go. But it’s vital to at least try and move around 30 minutes a day. That can look different for everyone. Park further away so you have to walk more. Make a point to take walking breaks throughout your busy day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Or just get outside for a bit to enjoy moving and the fresh air.

Best Strength-Building Options for Women

These exercises depend entirely on your goals, skill level, and your personal preferences. The good news is that there are countless options out there for you. All you need to do is a bit of research, but we can help kickstart the best way to do that.

First of all, consider your goals. Do you want to strengthen certain parts of your body? Or would you like to target fat in a specific area? Write down your goals for exercising and then hit Google to find the best options for you. Strengthening your arms will yield totally different results for burning belly fat.

Secondly, make sure to always consider your skill level. You don’t want to jump too quickly into a lift set that is for immediate users. You might end up hurting yourself.

And finally, have fun! Getting to the gym on a regular basis can be like pulling teeth, so make sure you’re doing something you can look forward to. Love lifting weights? Make more room for that in your schedule. Prefer exercise classes to joining a community? Then schedule that time for yourself.

If you’re worried about what exercises would be best for you, mention something during your annual gynecology visit. Your medical professionals would be happy to assist you in making the right, most educated choices for yourself when picking from the best exercises for women.

Women’s health doesn’t get nearly as much attention as men’s health. There’s lots to still learn about women and their bodies. While many years ago other women might have had to guess or make up rules about why our bodies do certain things, now we have more knowledge than ever before. Yet, some of those common women’s health rumors have stuck around despite being proven wrong.

To help keep you in the loop, we’re busting some of the most common women’s health rumors below. Before you read the answer, see if you can guess correctly.

Myth: Before you start labor, your water has to break.

While most fictional stories show a woman’s water breaking before she goes into labor, only about 10% of women have their water break before their labor begins. Instead of counting on their water breaking as a measurement of labor, women should concentrate on the frequency of their contractions.

Myth: You cycle up with your friends and loved ones.

Menstrual synchrony is a medical theory that women who live near each other or spend a lot of time together sync their periods so that they all occur at the same time. However, while many women have reported experiencing this, there isn’t enough scientific evidence to prove it officially. In recent studies, the findings were inconclusive, with some experiencing menstrual synchrony and others not. This doesn’t mean the investigation is fully closed, so keep your eyes peeled for more findings.

Myth: Having period pain or pain during sex is normal, even if it’s dehabiliting.

It’s common to have some mild period pain. Most women experience that. However, extreme pain that gets in the way of your daily activities while you’re menstruating should not be happening. If you’re experiencing this, it could be a medical condition like endometriosis or PMDD. The same can be said for pain during sex. While some pain from time to time might be normal, pain every you have intercourse is usually a medical condition.

Myth: Most women don’t experience postpartum depression.

This is probably one of the most important myths to set straight. One in five women experience postpartum depression after giving birth, which can lead to serious mental health issues. If you are experiencing postpartum depression or baby blues, know that you are not alone, and consider seeking help to alleviate these feelings.

Myth: The earlier you get your period, the earlier you go through menopause.

False! The average age of women to go through menopause is 51.7 years old. This age does not change depending on when the person had their period.

Myth: If you have a urinary tract infection, drink cranberry juice.

While cranberry juice does help prevent bacteria from attaching to your bladder’s wall, it doesn’t help get rid of your UTI or lessen your symptoms. Only antibiotics prescribed by your doctor can do that. However, the benefit of cranberry juice for women’s health is still being studied.

Myth: I don’t have a high sex-drive or any sexual desire at all, so something must be wrong with me.

Not true! Some women have a low sex drive, others have a very high sex drive. If you don’t want to have sex at all ever, there is absoutely nothing wrong with you. If you would like to change your sex drive however, you can speak with your doctor to potentionally start hormonal treatments.

Myth: I have no symptoms, so I don’t have an STI. Even if I am sexually active, I only sleep with one person so I don’t need to get STD testing done.

Some of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have zero symptoms, such as gonorrhea or HPV. This is why you should have yearly STD testing done, even if you sleep with only one person.

Myth: Eating certain foods will help me get pregnant, while others will help determine the gender of my baby.

There are so many pregnancy-related myths we couldn’t fit them all in one blog. But if you see anything claiming that the kinds of foods you eat will affect your ability to get pregnant or change the gender of your baby, don’t believe them. While some of those rumors are fun, most of them are old wife’s tales and won’t do anything to impact you or your baby.

Myth: I am the only person I know struggling to get pregnant.

Did you know that 12 percent of women struggle to get pregnant? And that about 10 to 15 out of 100 pregnancies end in a miscarriage. So, no, you are not alone in your journey. If you would like to speak to someone going through a similar struggle as you, click here to find a support group from Resolve, the National Infertility Association.
