Let’s talk about Female Health

Charlotte Willis takes a frank and practical look at health matters vegan women have to deal with

From period pains to birth control, as women we have a lot to contend with on a daily basis.

Our reproductive health supports the functioning of our entire body, so it’s only right that we treat it with care and respect. Leave your taboos behind, and let’s get ready to take care of our bodies with our guide to female health.

Taboos are not something that I, nor many fellow females of my generation, can tolerate. As women, we must talk to each other about our menstrual and reproductive healthcare regimes. There’s so much to say and plenty we can learn from each other’s experiences. By conversing openly we can help other ladies have a happier, more satisfying and caring relationship with their bodies. Let’s begin, shall we?
