The Pressures of Being a Woman
For a long time, I thought that I was going to get married and have a few kids but as time went on I started to realize that I don’t want that for myself; I am one of those people who realized early that marriage and kids were not for me and that is OK. I have come to the conclusion that having kids and a husband or wife is not in the cards for me; I like my space and I like being able to do things for myself and not have to worry about other people. You see the commercials for the wedding rings and the pregnancy tests and you start to think if maybe there is something wrong with you because you don’t have that urge to go out get those things. Being a woman is hard enough without feeling like I have to change my whole world to fit some societal norm that states that having a family will somehow complete me as a person, I don’t have time for that.
The Infamous Debate On Pubic Hair Removal For Women
In These recent days and times, there is so much controversy surrounding this particular subject of pubic hair and vagina hair removal as a whole. In particular, the buzz is mostly centered around or about whether or not the hair in this very private area(Vagina) should or should not be removed at all, or should not be completely removed if at all being removed. If the final decision to remove Female pubic hair(vagina hair) is made, just how much should actually be removed as said earlier? Is just a little trim sufficient? Should the bikini line as well also be free of unsightly, coarse and black curls? Or should a woman just jump on the bandwagon all out go for the much-hyped Brazilian wax or complete shaved out option?
It's All About My Stiff, Painful and Rapidly Ageing Body
I am pretending today that I have not spent nearly a year being relatively silent on my blogs. Instead, I will charge right in with some random, scattered thoughts about my current state of being. By current, I should clarify: everything having to do with today and the last year and a half of mad-fuckery days, Covid-days, the violent news cycle days and the days that I sat on the sofa staring, terror-stricken, at a stone wall. All the while, no monsters appeared (in my quiet corner of the world) — only a stone wall.
What do you need to know about your vaginal discharge say?
Vaginal discharge is the discharge that comes out of your vagina, which is a normal thing for every woman. It can vary during your menstrual cycle. The amount of discharge produced by your vagina in a day is about a teaspoon which is clear or white, thin or thick, and odorless. This is produced due to the bacteria present in the vagina or is secreted by the vaginal walls. It is most frequent in the days before ovulation. The discharge may be more obvious at certain times of a month and can depend on different factors such as ovulation, menstrual flow, sexual activity, and birth control.
Why even 'good girls' need pap smears
9:00 AM Monday morning: I'm in a tiny room at my doctor's office staring at stirrups. If you are unfamiliar with stirrups (and if you are, I am going to assume you are a man), they are two folding metal arms that protrude from the foot of a gynecological exam table, otherwise know as the most uncomfortable bed in the world. If you are lucky, the little foot rests at the ends have socks on them. I am not lucky today. My feet will be on the cold bare metal. I strip down to the nothing and don a comically thin paper gown (Opening in the front! I have to remind myself every time) and hop up on the table where I drape a thin paper sheet over my lap and wait for the doctor to arrive.

“Is that normal”? Subtitle “Am I normal?” … I have stopped counting the posts ending or starting with this since I have joined social media menopause groups. All 20something of them…Always that question coming back, don’t take me wrong, I’m not judging, I have applied myself with professional dedication not to live a normal life, whatever it means, and still…Still, I remember perfectly well I ended up asking myself the same question with the first hot flush. Believe it or not, my mother who has no problem sharing careful details about bowels movement, yours or hers, a great listener on this at least, never shared any information about menopause. So of course, when the first night sweat showed up at 41 years old, me, a relatively well-educated woman, even if I admit biology was not my forte, didn’t t even think that it could be this because no woman in my family mentioned it ever in front of me.

My Experience with the Nexplanon Birth Control Implant
Before I get started, I just want to state that this is MY experience. Everyone’s body is different, and I personally know people who have the Nexplanon and enjoy it. I am sharing my experience because I feel like the information I was given before getting the implant didn’t cover everything I needed to know, and I may have reconsidered if I knew what I was in for.
Nothing prepares you at 41 years old to jump from being woken up at night to feed your last-born baby to being woken up by a night sweat a few days later and nothing really prepares you to being diagnosed with perimenopause a few months later when you realise those symptoms are here to stay and needs to be addressed.
