Whether or not you decide to have children, your body keeps working. And the proper functioning of its parts can cause a woman great pain. We are not given enough information to care after our health, especially not from church. A woman's reproductive organs are just where babies come from to many.
However, as many young women experience it, a monthly period can cause great agony. The church seems almost dismissive of women's health issues. When period pains come and go, a woman is told that it's the curse of Eve. A doctor might just give a few pills for the pain, or even recommend that the woman go on anti-depressants to help manage pain. This is a mistake.
One of the very real issues women face is the growth of non-cancerous fibroid tumors. You owe it to yourself to complain to your doctor if you have severe problems with your cycle. Most younger women do not have them, but the symptoms can appear in your 20s and be debilitating.
Please check out more from the Mayo Clinic if you have these symptoms and make sue you get yourself checked out. Our bodies are a temple to the Lord. It's time to stop being embarrassed, and take control of your health. I say this because I gave up complaining and I just found out that I have fibroids. None of the risk factors are actually true for me, so I just thought this is what everyone went through.
In women who have symptoms, the most common symptoms of uterine fibroids include:
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Prolonged menstrual periods — seven days or more of menstrual bleeding
- Pelvic pressure or pain
- Frequent urination
- Difficulty emptying your bladder
- Backache or leg pains
- Pain during sexual intercourse
Honestly, I don't know if anyone even reads my blog anymore, but I thought I'd put this out there. This information should be helpful whether you're married or single. And it doesn't matter if you have children or not.
Luckily with so many people having insurance for the first time, many women will be able to get treatment who were not able to afford it.
