Boobs are great. They look fantastic whatever size and give men something to think about. I'm surprised there wasn't a national day of mourning when The Sun decided to finish up page 3.
Our love affair with boobs is long-reaching. They've been a sign of good health, fertility and sexual desire right back to Ancient Mayan times. They also develop long term differences as we age. They are constantly changing, just like Cheryl on the X Factor.

Your doctor may push you to get a bun in the oven sooner rather than later, but don't worry because I know the correct answer - move over Kirsty Allsopp and take a gobstopper. Are you ready?

A diaphragm is not just difficult to spell, it's also pretty difficult to use, or so I've been told. Good news then that it's been redesigned.

Here's one for your diary. June 8th is Tampon Alert Day. The emergency services are drafting in more personnel to cover the potential crisis. It's going to be like War of the Worlds, except tampons will descend to Earth and attempt to flush us away.

When you hear the word 'menopause', what pops into your head? Chances are you think about hot flushes, but not much else. In actual fact, menopause has many more symptoms and can potentially hinder a woman's life for 20 years or more.
