Did you know it's possible to get ovarian cancer even after you've had a hysterectomy? I learned the hard way. My sister, who had a hysterectomy about 10 years ago, just received a diagnosis for a type of ovarian cancer. If you have a partial hysterectomy, which removes your uterus, or a total hysterectomy, which removes your uterus and cervix, your ovaries remain intact and you can still develop ovarian cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic.

by Lindsey Metrus I'm a chronic "snacker". Whenever there are cookies, chips, or basically anything processed in sight, I'll eat it, then immediately regret it. I know I'm not going to feel good. Processed foods and foods high in fat, sugar, sodium and cholesterol can quickly leave you feeling bloated, fatigued, and, well, blah.

I used to say that I came from a family of vain women. My dear and very attractive grandmother, born at the turn of the 20th century, valued her beauty so greatly that she'd go off on a "vacation" and emerge weeks later looking rather refreshed and rejuvenated. As I got older, I quickly caught on that "vacation" was merely her clever moniker for "face lift."
