Do women need more sleep than men?

Is it true women need more sleep than men? If yes, why is that the case? and how much sleep should women be getting? Thanks (Sarah)

Hot flushes

Hi, I'll be 60 in July and get a hot flush maybe once every few weeks. While they're not bad enough to soak the bed, they occasionally wake me up during the night.

Is there anything I can do to stop them waking me up in the night? (Maureen)

Urge incontinence

I have had urge incontinence for ages and none of the medications have done any good. Also the cervix exercises haven't helped either. I have an appointment with the gynaecology department in a couple of weeks, but I am not holding out much hope. In 2007 I had a stress related incontinence operation...

Post Hysterectomy

After suffering with andenomyosis and fibroids for years I had a hysterectomy last year, my uterus and cervix were removed. There really hasn’t been much after care information to be honest. I kept my ovaries and I’ve noticed I will get some pain around the time of my period. If I don’t have a uteru...

Painful intercourse

I have extreme pain during sex and smears. I cannot help but scream or shove my fist in my mouth. I have had this since my late 20s. There have been lots of tests and scans and nothing is seen. It is the bony bit that the speculum or penis touches, i assume my pelvic opening. Is there anything you c...

HPV

When having a smear test I have been told that I have the HPV virus present but no pre cancerous cells detected year on year. Can you please explain how this would be possible? (Julie)
