Is PMS Real?

Do you know how to measure your cervix height?

Someone seriously asked if PMS is real or cultural phenomenon. We wonder how that can even be asked when you are a guy who has not experienced it. Zimbabwe’s recession has led them to a cash shortage that is causing women to forego medications, procedures and more. There might even be an increase in HIV/AIDS diagnoses and increased maternal and infant death due to the lack of access to healthcare. Do you know how to check the height of your cervix? Why would you want to do it and how do you do it? We explore…

 

Feed your period with garbanzo beans (or chickpeas!) These delicious legumes that calm the Spirit and balance hormones are a great addition to your diet.
