With the increase in the prevalence of endometriosis, there is a high possibility that you have encountered at least one women who experiences endometriosis.
The no.1 complaint of these patients is the lack of support from their loved ones and society in general.
Regardless of gender, no one can understand the extent of endometriosis unless they have experienced it. Therefore, this week’s collaboration with @sguphsa @wim.sgu @sgunsa , has compiled a list of tips of ways in which you can support your loved ones who live alongside their endometriosis:
- Research endometriosis (We’ve provided helpful resources below)
- Understand that endometriosis varies for each person – Spend time learning your loved one’s symptoms
- Understand that there is no cure but do not lose hope in the possibility in the future
- Don’t be afraid of reaching out to them
- Don’t assume that they are lazy – chronic fatigue is the most common symptom among women with endometriosis
- Educate others on the truth of endometriosis

Women with endometriosis need support, NOT judgement.

Trivia Tuesday- Do you know the facts!

As we continue this week with s*xual and reproductive health, it’s only befitting that we address s*xual transmitted infections and diseases. Read about a few common myths that many people get wrong.

Sexual health is an important part of living and should be a priority. Some ways to Protect yourself and partners include: using condoms, get tested regularly, have open communication with your partner(s), and get annual exams.

#MaternalMonday - Teen pregnancy

This week we will be highlighting s*xual and reproductive health. Good s*xual and reproductive health can be described as persons having a satisfying and safe s*x life, the capability to reproduce, and the freedom to decide if, when,and how often to do so.(UNFPA)

However, teen pregnancy is still a global problem that needs to be addressed. Social, economic, and educational factors contribute as lack of safe s*x knowledge results in teenage parents. These parents are more likely to be unemployed, give birth to low birth-weight babies, and live in poverty. Teen pregnancy can be as detrimental as the loss of the mother’s life during childbirth.

If you know a teen who may be pregnant and in need of help, we have included some organizations and resources where they can reach out for support.

Be sure to share with friends and family members & #happyinternationalwomensday
