女性には、毎月月経という習慣があり、これは閉経までの長きにわたって続き、間に妊娠により中断される時期はあるものの、子供のころから年を取り中年と呼ばれる年代になるまで、ずっと関わっていかなければならないものです。
この月経には非常に個人差があり、たとえ姉妹であっても全く症状が違う場合も多く、生理中であっても普段と同じように何ら体調も変わらず過ごせる方もいれば、数日は寝込んでしまうほど生理痛が重い方もいます。
後者のような方はお腹や腰の痛み、頭の痛みや吐き気にも悩まされることもあり、日常生活もままならないほど体調を崩してしまう方も少なくありません。

こんな体質の方に取って、避妊薬として知られているピルは、女性ホルモンのバランスを整えることが出来るため、月経の際の様々な問題を緩和させることができるので、婦人科で治療法のひとつとして処方されることもあります。
今主流となっている避妊薬は、低用量ピルで、以前日本で取り扱われていたものに比べると、ホルモン量も少なくなっているため、格段に副作用が軽減されており、安心して服用できるようになっています。
避妊薬としての効果はもちろんのこととして、ピルを服用するようになると、生理周期がカレンダーのように安定し、全く狂わなくなったり、生理時の経血量がかなり減るので、生理に伴う様々な痛みもほとんど感じられなくなります。
経血量が減れば、ナプキンを交換しなければならない頻度も減り、時計を見ながら焦る必要もなく、生理期間も今までとは違ってストレスがなく過ごせるようになります。

こういったことは、今まで生理でさんざん苦しめられてきた女性に取ってはまさに夢のようなことで、生活の質が飛躍的にアップすることは間違いありません。

避妊薬とは、黄体ホルモンと卵胞ホルモンを主成分として作られているホルモン剤です。
避妊薬としては、ホルモン量が少なく身体への影響が少ない低用量ピルが一般的に使われています。

避妊薬は、避妊効果だけでなく月経トラブルの改善や不妊の予防に対しても効果が期待できます。
避妊薬の仕組みは、服用することで女性ホルモンの血中濃度が上がります。
血中濃度が上がることで、脳が卵巣から女性ホルモンが十分に分泌されていると勘違いし、ホルモン分泌を抑制します。
あわせて黄体化ホルモンや卵胞刺激ホルモンの分泌も抑制するため排卵を抑制します。
さらに精子が子宮内に入りにくいように警官粘液の性状を変化させたり、受精卵が着床しにくいように子宮内膜の増殖を抑えます。
その結果、避妊効果が期待できるようになります。

避妊薬が月経トラブルの改善や不妊の予防に有効な理由として、排卵が抑えられることと子宮内膜の増殖が抑えられることです。
正しく避妊薬を使うことで、28日周期で月経が来るようになります。
また、子宮内膜の増殖が抑えられると出血量が減り、内膜が剥がれる際の収縮も抑えられるため、月経痛の軽減にもつながります。
子宮内膜の増殖が抑えられることは、子宮内膜症の予防にもつながります。

子宮内膜症は、月経が起こることで内膜の一部が逆流し、卵管の先から出てきてしまいます。
これをきっかけにして子宮以外の卵巣の中などになまくができて増殖してしまい、受精や排卵を妨げるようになります。

避妊薬を飲むことで排卵が止まり、内膜の増殖が抑えられることで剥がれるようが減ります。
その結果、子宮内膜症になるリスクが減ります。
子宮内膜症は、不妊の原因にもなるため、将来的な不妊を防ぐために避妊薬の服用は有効です。

生理の習慣がある健康な身体を持つ女性に取って、男性と性交渉を持つということは、少なからず妊娠する可能性は生じるもので、子供を欲しいと考えていないのであれば、避妊対策は確実に取らなければなりません。
日本では、まだまだ避妊を男性任せにする女性も多く、コンドームが最もポピュラーな避妊方法だといわれており、途中ではずれてしまった、破れていた、射精前につけたといった要因などで、望まない妊娠をしてしまっている女性も少なくありません。
妊娠してしまえば、身体はどんどん変化していくので、妊娠を継続させ母親になるか、産むことのできない環境であれば、残念ではありますが中絶手術を受けるしかありません。
どちらにしても、心と身体に強い負担を強いられるのは女性だけで、望んでいない妊娠という事態で傷がつくのは、男性ではなく女性一人だけです。

こういったことにならないためにも、確実な方法である避妊薬を服用するのが最適で、コンドームなどに任せるよりも数段安心です。
避妊薬を毎日忘れることなくきちんと服用していれば、現存する避妊方法の中ではもっとも確実だといわれており、ほぼ百パーセントに近い確率で妊娠を回避することが可能です。
近年では、低用量ピルが解禁となったことにより、以前よりもさらに身体にリスクがなく、避妊薬を服用できるようになっています。
この低用量ピルは、避妊効果を高めるだけではなく、女性には切っても切れない毎月の生理に伴う、様々悩みを改善させてくれるので、服用するようになると日常生活の質は、格段にアップします。
今まで生理だからとあきらめていたことも、普段通りに行えるようになり、辛い生理痛に苦しむこともなくなります。

コンドームに比べて、明らかに高い避妊成功率を誇っている避妊薬のピルは、女性が自らの意思で、望まない妊娠をしっかりと予防できる効果があります。
男性と性交渉の機会を持つ女性には、ぜひとも利用してもらいたい医薬品です。

この避妊薬には服用に当たって注意点もあるので、飲み始める場合は婦人科クリニックを受診して、医師の診察を受け、様々な検査をきちんと受けたうえで服用することが大切です。
特にたばこを吸う女性は、ピルを服用すると血栓ができやすくなってしまうという報告が上がっており、服用に当たっては慎重にならなければなりません。
血栓ができてしまうと、心筋梗塞や脳卒中など、重篤な疾患を引き起こすリスクも高まってしまうので、特に35歳以上の喫煙者にはピルは処方しないというクリニックも多いようです。
しかしたばこの害は、避妊薬の服用云々以前の問題で、発ガン性物質を含むものなので、様々な病気の原因になるといわれているのでできるだけ早目に禁煙するのが望ましいものです。
女性に取ってたばこは、美容効果を著しく損なうものであり、まさに百害あって一利なしです。
ピルを服用していなくてもタバコや過度の飲酒は、血がドロドロになり血栓ができやすくなってしまうので、健康で過ごすためにも、禁煙に向けて努力を行うことは必重要な問題です。

この避妊薬のピルは、女性に取っては実に多くの利益がある薬で、日常生活における様々な問題を改善してくれ、快適な毎日を送れるようにしてくれます。
ホルモンバランスを整える効果があるので、生理周期を安定させたり、生理痛の緩和や生理前のイライラ、むくみなど、身体に起こるいろいろな不具合を軽減させてくれます。

Organization Welcomes Proven Leader with Experience Guiding Change, Transformation and Growth

Irving, TX (December 30, 2019) – The National Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) named Roger C. Mosby as the organization's CEO and President after a focused search, which was initiated when former CEO and President Michael B. Surbaugh retired after a tenure of more than four years.

“As the BSA moves through an extraordinary time of both change and opportunity, we believe Roger's experience as a seasoned executive, adept at guiding transformation and driving growth, will bring the right combination of strength and focus needed to steer our organization toward a promising future,” noted Jim Turley, National Chair of the Boy Scouts of America.

Roger Mosby most recently ran his own consulting firm focused on executive coaching, following his retirement from leading energy infrastructure company Kinder Morgan in 2015. During nearly two decades with the company, he served as HR lead and was one of the original six officers. During his tenure, Kinder Morgan grew from 175 to more than 11,000 employees, with Mosby leading extensive change management and cultural transformation efforts.

“I am honored to assume a leadership role with what I believe to be the nation's greatest youth-serving organization, one that is close to my heart and that I have served for years as a volunteer. I am confident that my decades of experience helping talented people grow, transform and evolve organizations can be applied to furthering the mission of Scouting,” Mosby said. “Scouting has been part of my life for most of my life. I believe in the power of Scouting and how important it is in developing character and leadership in young people, so I am proud to join dedicated professionals and volunteers as we move the organization forward.”

Roger was a Scout as a youth and served for more than 33 years as a volunteer in the Mid-America and Sam Houston Area councils, in addition to positions with the Southern Region and National Committees of the Boy Scouts of America, as well as the World Organization of the Scout Movement. He has received the Silver Antelope Award and the Silver Beaver Award, the highest honors for volunteers at the regional and local levels, respectively, and is a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow, Scouting's honor society.

“Roger's expertise in leading, navigating and implementing positive organizational change will be invaluable to the BSA,” said Ellie Morrison, National Commissioner of the Boy Scouts of America. “His skills and experience are just what we need at this time. I look forward to working with him to ensure Scouting's bright future.”

Roger Mosby joins Jim Turley and Ellie Morrison to form the BSA's “Key 3,” the organization's highest tier of leadership at the national level.

“We thank Michael Surbaugh for his years of service and leadership to the Boy Scouts of America,” Turley said. “Now, as we enter the next stage, we welcome Roger and his well-suited expertise to guide us toward even more opportunities to bring the benefits of Scouting to more youth, families and communities.”

IRVING, TX (November 13, 2019) – The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Boy Scouts of America have announced the official roll out of the Auxiliary's Sea Scouts youth development initiative, which integrates members of Sea Scout ships (units) into Auxiliary shore-side and underway training and missions both shoreside and underway. In 2018, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and Coast Guard Auxiliary signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) establishing BSA's Sea Scout program as the Auxiliary's official youth program. The agreement broadens the Auxiliary's efforts to reach out to young boaters and encourages them to consider Coast Guard and maritime careers.

“Designating Sea Scouts as the official youth program of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the most important initiative the Auxiliary has ever undertaken. I believe working with our Sea Scout partners will bring new opportunities to both groups,” said Larry King, Auxiliary National Commodore.

“Working with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary will give Sea Scouts an opportunity to benefit from Coast Guard seamanship and vocational training, while giving Sea Scouts a unique introduction to the Coast Guard,” said T.W. Cook, Sea Scout National Commodore.

Recognizing Sea Scouts as the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary's official youth program provides a number of important benefits, including:

Auxiliary flotillas are encouraged to support existing Sea Scout ships and to establish new Sea Scout ships where there are currently none. Working with Auxiliary members greatly enhances the resources available to youth in the Sea Scout program by engaging more adult leaders with seamanship skills, training and access to vessels into the program All Sea Scouts and leaders are now automatically associate members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary Association. Additionally, any Sea Scout may apply for full Auxiliary membership. The minimum joining age remains 17 years old for non-Sea Scouts. Auxiliary programs will facilitate advanced science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-oriented training.

Details of these changes and more are available on the Auxiliary's AuxBWiki website at tinyurl.com/AuxBWiki .

Starting with an initial MOA in 2009, which established a framework for cooperation between the two organizations, the BSA and Coast Guard Auxiliary have been working together to promote recreational boating safety, as well as to share communications and manpower resources over the past decade.

“The BSA is proud to continue our partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary as we continually strive to improve leadership development, real-life skill-building and unique STEM training through the Sea Scout program,” said Patrick Sterrett, Assistant Chief Scout Executive and National Director of Field Service of the Boy Scouts of America.

The Boy Scouts of America highlights anti-bullying efforts incorporated in current Scout programming

IRVING, TX (September 17, 2019) – Generation Z believes bullying is the biggest issue facing their generation, according to new data. A survey of American youth ages 6 to 17, commissioned by the Boy Scouts of America, found that bullying ranked as the top concern for young people on a community, national and global level.

The survey asked young Americans to prioritize their top five from a list of roughly 20 issues in the local community, the U.S. and the world. Thirty percent said bullying was one of the problems they most wanted to solve across the globe, and 32% said it was the biggest issue in the country. On a local level, Gen Z ranked bullying (28%), hunger (28%) and care for the elderly (27%) as the top three issues they see themselves helping to improve in their community.

From daily good deeds to service projects, the Boy Scouts of America has been actively working to equip kids with the tools they need to counteract bullying throughout their communities and daily lives. All Scouts participate in anti-bullying training and learn to live by the Scout Law, a foundational element of Scouting that includes 12 guiding characteristics that include being helpful, trustworthy and kind. In fact, a 2015 Tufts University study showed children involved in Cub Scouts were significantly more kind and helpful than non-Scouts.

“My son is in a local Scouting troop here in Lakeville, Minnesota and it has changed his life,” said Katie Dettmann. Her son Alden has autism. She says Scouts BSA is the first place where her son has not been judged. “It's a peer group that's very accepting and welcoming. He can take risks, try new things and grow with the encouragement and support of his peers.”

“Scouting is one of my favorite things I've ever been a part of. I've met people from all over the world and I get along with them. We learn so much from each other,” said Alden Dettmann.

The desire for inclusivity and kindness resonates well beyond Alden's family. According to the survey, 86% of young Americans said that not being bullied is a daily priority. And 97% said being kind to others is an important aspect of daily life.

Multiple Eagle Scout projects, a substantial service project that's required to attain the program's highest rank, have tackled bullying and inclusivity in recent years. One Scout even rallied his community to construct a musical playground that was fully accessible for students with physical or mental challenges. And merit badges offered by Boy Scouts of America, such as Disability Awareness and American Cultures, help kids understand and respect each other's differences while building character and leadership skills.

This desire to help make the world a better place is inherent in Gen Z, according to the study. Seventy-six percent said they believe their generation has the ability to make positive change in the world. Other top issues they want to tackle globally are poverty (28%), human rights (26%) and access to education (24%).

Survey highlights:
• 97% of those surveyed said being kind to others is important
• 84% said they want to be a part of solving issues in the future in their community
• 79% said improving their community is very important
• 50% said the reason they focus on some of these issues is because their parents are passionate about them
• Bullying was the top concern among respondents with 28% of respondents seeing themselves helping improve bullying at the community level, 32% at the national level and 30% at the global level
• Other top concerns respondents want to help solve are hunger (28%) and care for elders (27%) at the local level, animal rights (28%) and recycling (28%) at the national level and poverty (28%) and human rights (26%) at the global level

¹A 2015 study by Tufts University worked to answer that question and many others through research which measured the character attributes of both Scouts and non-Scouts. The survey included 2,000+ Scouts and non-Scouts aged 6-12 in the Philadelphia area.

Fifty Years After NASA Astronaut and Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong Set Foot on the Moon NASA Astronaut and Assistant Scoutmaster Drew Morgan Will Speak to Scouts at the 24th World Scout Jamboree Directly from the International Space Station

Glen Jean, WV (July 19, 2019) – As 45,000 Scouts from over 150 countries prepare to kick of the 24th World Scout Jamboree, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and NASA will come together to inspire today's youth to expand their possibilities with a unique event that builds on Scouting's iconic connection to the historic 1969 Moon landing.

Fifty years after NASA astronaut and Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong sent greetings from space to participants of the 1969 National Scout Jamboree, NASA astronaut Drew Morgan will inspire a new generation of Scouts directly from the International Space Station as he answers questions posed by Scouts attending the World Scout Jamboree at Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia at 1:30 p.m. EDT on July 24. View it live at www.nasa.gov/nasatv.

The World Scout Jamboree, which is held every four years, provides life-changing activities focused on adventure, sustainability, peace and community service. Inspired by the theme “Unlock a New World,” young men and women will celebrate the international tradition of Scouting during the two-week long 24th World Scout Jamboree that will take place in the United States for the first time since 1967.

For April McMillan, National Director of Programs for the Boy Scouts of America and former researcher at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the inspiration that Scouting provides young people is endless.

“Through every merit badge, adventure and service project, the programs of the Boy Scouts of America have been providing character and leadership opportunities for young men and women for more than a century,” McMillan said. “As this generation faces a new frontier of opportunities and challenges, the best thing we can do for these future leaders is to empower them with a sense of curiosity to explore the many wonders the world, and the self-reliance to find solutions within themselves, their communities and the world that surrounds them.”

And Scouts are doing just that. In fact, interest in exploration continues to propel Scouts who last year earned more than 175,000 space-related merit badges, including astronomy, engineering, environmental science, geology and space exploration, with the newest Exploration merit badge growing in interest by 60 percent in the last year.

For those young men and women and many others, “The Eagle has landed,” – the iconic words proclaimed by Neil Armstrong – hold special meaning as they dream of walking in the footsteps of the famous astronauts of the Apollo 11 mission, especially given the many connections between NASA and Scouting. While it is well known that Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the Moon, it was fellow NASA astronaut and Eagle Scout Jim Lovell who suggested that the lunar module be named Eagle. And five years before that, in 1964, NASA sent a group of astronauts on geological trips to the BSA's Philmont Scout Ranch to introduce them to geologic concepts they might find on the Moon. Today, every Scout starting a backcountry trek at Philmont enters through the same doors and can stand in the same spot as Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and so many other incredible people who went through before them as they consider the path and possibilities that await them.
