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. Looking after our female health is just as important as the food that we put into our bodies, and the clarity of our minds. 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.

Let’s just go ahead and say it together, get it all out into the open shall we? Ready? Repeat aloud: Periods. Sex. Hormones. Birth control. Feels good doesn’t it?

You’ll often hear women talking about how veganism cleared their skin from hormonal acne, and miracle stories of achieving total vitality simply by following a plant-based diet. While this is true, you’ll rarely hear many women stand up and talk about how their periods have altered since using organic cotton tampons. How women have made a positive, mindful change to a hormone-free form of birth control. How women look for vegan condom brands that allow them to really feel their partners. 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?
