Abnormal Uterine Bleeding interview with Patricia Ntuli on SA FM radio
Abnormal uterine bleeding, also known as dysfunctional uterine bleeding, is common for women of reproductive age. Bleeding in between menstrual periods is abnormal uterine bleeding. Menorrhagia or heavy menstrual bleeding is characterised by an increased amount of blood lost during the menstrual period. The normal menstrual period blood loss is around 80 to 120 millilitres, about five tablespoons. Excessive blood loss is, therefore, blood loss that requires a woman to change their pad every hour or less, as it gets soaked from the heavy flow.
Dyskaryosis interview with Maryam Mkwanda on Salaam Media Radio
Precancerous changes of the outer (squamous) cells of the cervix have the potential to turn into cancer if left untreated. In the cervix, these precancerous changes are called ‘Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia’ or CIN for short. There are different grades of CIN according to how severe the changes are, from CIN1 minor change referred to as Low-Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions (LSIL) to CIN 2 and CIN 3 referred to as High-Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions (HSIL).
The risk of CIN1 developing into cancer is very small, however, we know that CIN2 and CIN3 may develop into cancer in some cases if left untreated.

The “Orgasm” shot interview with Patricia Ntuli on SA FM Radio
The Genital injection, or the O Shot / “Orgasm shot”, is a non-surgical procedure that can stimulate the vagina in a way that positively impacts orgasms. Up to 25% of women have orgasmic dysfunction, and there are few products on the market that are designed to help.
The O Shot procedure is performed in a doctor’s office by injecting the patient into the vaginal tissue. This then stimulates the growth of new cells in the injected areas, making those areas more sensitive to the touch.
