When you have fibroids, having sex can be painful. Fibroids, non-cancerous tumors, grow in and on the uterus. Depending on where they develop, the fibroids can interfere with your sexual relations. But that’s not the only way fibroids interfere with intimacy.
When you have fibroids, period pain and general pelvic pain can be a big problem. If that’s the case for you, you may find some relief with these gentle poses. Why is yoga so effective at treating period pain? Some Hatha yoga poses relax tension in your pelvis and abdomen.
Most women expect at least a little cramping during their menstrual periods. But when those painful cramps show up at other times of the month? It can be scary–and confusing! To help clear up the questions, let’s explore a few reasons you may cramp when it’s not that time of the month!
These days, there’s a lot of discussion about cannabidiol (CBD) products. Derived from the cannabis (marijuana) plant, CBD offers many therapeutic qualities without getting you high. CBD oils and lotions may stop pain, or even offer relief from anxiety and depression.
As we’ve shared previously on the blog, many women in this country have hysterectomies they don’t need. Since a hysterectomy–the complete removal of a woman’s uterus–is a really big deal, that’s scary news. But are there cases when hysterectomies are a must?
It’s #WomanCrushWednesday! Today, we honor Tamika Gray Valburn, founder of The White Dress Project. For years, Tanika suffered from fibroids . She saw her mom lose two sets of twins due to her own fibroids, but didn’t make the connection to her own diagnosis right away!
According to the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 400,000 women in the U.S. get hysterectomies each year. Sadly, up to 70% of those surgeries were likely avoidable (other treatments could have been offered.) Many women with fibroids have learned this the hard way.
For women, vaginal discharge is part of a normal monthly cycle. It changes in amount, color and texture at different times in the month. But when that color changes to pink, it could be a sign of a bigger problem brewing.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is an effective, minimally invasive fibroid treatment. For years, we didn’t know how UFE affects fertility. Women who wanted kids had myomectomies (surgical removal of fibroids.) Now, thanks to a new French study, that school of thought may just be changing.
Plenty of women will have children without difficulty despite having fibroids, but these non-cancerous tumors of the uterus can still create complications for many.
