My Journey handling Feminine Health Issues
Staying motivated is often the most difficult part of maintaining any aspect of a healthy lifestyle, including exercise. Women’s health matter most and its is undeniably the most understudied area. Feminine health is a sensitive area to explore and treat and I want to share my experience of facing hard times dealing with health issues common in females.
Ahh man yeah, I definitely have to write about this! Sell all my life I’ve always had heavy menstrual cycles I mean so heavy it was unbearable along with the pain. I would have flu-like symptoms and damn near would need it to be rushed to the hospital because the temperature it was so high. But the main reason why I wanted to discuss this topic is that I had 20 fibroids removed from my uterus. Which is also called a Myomectomy. I remember going to several different doctors and telling them about my issues about how my periods were so painful and that they were heavy and each doctor acted like it was too huge of a chore or procedure to even discuss further.
All they kept doing was give me ibuprofen and told me to use heating pads and to take it easy. But no! That did not help at all because of the heavy menstrual cycles and the flu-like symptoms I would miss out on a lot of activities because it would affect my day. I would have to cancel some show appearances and couldn’t be around anybody at all! Until I met this female doctor in Oakland California who pressed on my stomach the first day I met her and said she didn’t need to look any further she felt the fibroids very strongly. After she sent me to get an ultrasound they said it was like cauliflower sitting on my uterus they could barely even see my uterus. So I went ahead and got the procedure done I stayed in the hospital for about 4 to 5 days massive bleeding and I felt like I just got hit by a truck LOL. But the hospital was so kind to me I had several different nurses that came to my aid for everything. And then my mom walks in with a picture of the fibroids that were removed and oh my god there were 20 of them LOL can you believe that? 20 gross nasty things sitting in my stomach for years!
Fibroids are no joke get them removed if they are bothering you or else it could ruin your life! It’s hard being a woman we have so many things that we have to take care of when it comes to our body on top of looking good, making money, interacting with others and having children. Ladies take care of yourselves and always see your gynecologist if you have concerns about any feminine issues! Oh and by the way divas please please practice safe sex and find the right birth control that’s for you!
Every woman deserves the best healthcare. Your health needs change at different stages of your life – you may be preparing for pregnancy, awaiting the birth of your baby, going through menopause, or looking for answers to women’s health queries. Whatever stage you’re at, whatever your needs, understand your condition and take control of your own health.
