Being sick when you are a woman: to specifically support women who are ill, Carenity has created a forum that is wholly dedicated to women’s health.
There are numerous issues that women experience when they are suffering from a chronic illness:
-Difficulty and frustrations with being taken seriously by healthcare professionals, especially concerning the diagnosis of endometriosis.
-Taboo aspects of illnesses, such as the experience of incontinence or cancer of the vulva…
-Loss of self-confidence, especially following menopause or genital prolapse. A disease that affects the patient aesthetically, such as cancer or lipedema (or restless leg syndrome) can also be difficult to cope with.
-A drop in libido that is sometimes related to pain during a sexual act (orgasmic dysfunction, dysfunction related to sexual interest and excitement, genito-pelvic pain, dyspareunia ...)
Discuss these topics and others together to challenge taboos and make a change!
