Fibroids Awareness

Fibroids are muscular tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus (womb). Fibroids are almost always benign (not cancerous). Fibroids are most common in women in their early 40’s and 50’s, and up to 80% of women will develop fibroids at some point in their lives. Not all women with fibroids have symptoms, but women who do often find fibroids hard to live with. Read on to learn more about fibroids, who gets them, and treatment. 

Disability Pride Month

According to the CDC, up to 1 in 4, or roughly 27% of adults in the U.S. have some type of disability. Read on to learn more about disability rights, types, health resources, and role models.  

National Orgasm Day

An orgasm is the height or peak of sexual arousal when the body releases sexual tension and pressure. It involves very intense feelings of pleasure in the genitals and throughout the body, and typically lasts a few seconds. Women’s orgasms are thought to be more intense – and rarer. Read on to find out why (and how to change that for yourself!)
