We are still celebrating ourselves, Queens! As we continue the celebration of all of the efforts ladies all around the world have made to push the needle forward bit by bit, I can’t help but think about all of the personal battles each and every one of us has gone through.
Imagine many of the greats, Sojourner Truth, Helen Keller, Ada Lovelace, Amanda Berry Smith and some of the many health reproductive health issues they may have experienced during their life’s journey as change agents and then remember you too are going through and you too have much to offer the world. Be inspired, but most importantly be equipped!
What better way to acknowledge Women’s Month than with prioritizing our HEALTH–mentally, spiritually, and physically, above all.
Did you know that lack of health-consciousness is one of the main triggers in Fibroids?
Fibroids usually grow in women of childbearing age. For African American women, fibroids typically develop at a younger age, grow larger, and cause more severe symptoms. Several factors may affect a woman’s risk for having uterine fibroids, including the following root causes we have outlined in our book END FIBROIDS Manual + Guide:
- Estrogen Dominance
- Endocrine Disruptors
- Vitamin D Deficiency
Other risk factors include:
- High Blood Pressure
The truth is for many, uterine fibroids are a significant source of decreased quality of life, which can lead to anxiety and depression.
Up to 90% of women of child-bearing age develop uterine fibroids before their 50th birthday. As women approach perimenopause, the risk of developing fibroids increases. Some women who have fibroids remain asymptomatic, and their conditions are only revealed when it has become a crisis because they have grown significantly and begun to impact other organs–such as the bladder, kidney, intestines and others.
And for those who are symptomatic, it’s easy to see how women coping with the everyday stressors of life, while dealing with the complications of uterine fibroids, can become overwhelmed and depressed.
Heavy, painful periods that last longer than a few days or a week can sap a woman’s energy and leave her physically drained from the resulting anemia. (Anemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough healthy red blood cells often after significant blood loss.)
Additionally, pain during intercourse can slam the door on intimacy, which can in turn have a trickle-down effect on a woman’s relationship with her spouse or partner. Dealing with urinary frequency can make life much more difficult, as women may curtail exercise routines or other enjoyable activities out of a fear of not being able to “hold it” until they can get to a bathroom.
Conversely, if a fibroid is applying pressure to the ureters, a woman might not be able to void her urine and may even need to be catheterized. When you consider all of the above, it’s no wonder that depression and uterine fibroids are often co-diagnoses.
