EveryWoman day was established to raise awareness and funds for lesser-researched health conditions which seriously affect quality of life for women as well as some which can kill them.
The cause of conditions such as interstitial cystitis, fibroids, endometriosis and infertility are still not well understood. Gynae cancers are less talked about than breast cancer because we don’t want to discuss “women’s troubles” – a tag which is still guaranteed to shut down questions and conversation. But women’s troubles can be painful, life limiting or life threatening. It’s time to talk.
