The womens health taboo

Urinary incontinence is a common problem in women, where pregnancy or the postnatal period may be the first time many women experience urinary incontinence. About a third of women leak urine and up to a 10th of women leak stool (faeces) after giving birth   Stress (having the symptom of involuntary urine leakage with physical exertion) and urgency (symptom of involuntary leakage associated with, or immediately following, a sudden compelling need to void) urinary incontinence are the two most common types of urine leakage in women. Many women have symptoms of both stress and urgency urinary incontinence; being identified as ‘mixed’ urinary incontinence. Of these types, stress urinary incontinence is most commonly associated with pregnancy and the postnatal period. Factors known to be associated with a greater risk of postpartum incontinence include vaginal delivery (in the short term); previous urinary incontinence; and heredity including anatomical and physiological factors such as pelvic anatomy and connective tissue structure A wide range of treatments and therapies are being used in the treatment of urinary and faecal incontinence, including …

Perfection is Procrastination

An area that needs transparency—the fitness starting date. As an expert in fitness and health I am well-versed in the hardships that come from building fitness from the ground up. The hardest part is to keep going and you are not going to make headway for the first couple of months. Keep your head down and focus on your tasks and intentions for the day ahead alone. It can be lonely and I think women should expect that. You may lose friends, self care it’s not glamourous and with it can bring envy. If you’re able to make it work you are able to have a lot of the freedoms that help you live a really fulfilled life.   My advice, don’t wait for something to be perfect to start. By waiting for the ‘ideal time’ to start your wellbeing adventures and projects, we are letting fear and perfection dictate our decision making.   Start something, the only place it can go is up. If you never launch your intention it will never grow! Perhaps …
