Most if not all women I know love stationery and especially a beautiful journal. As women, we know how easy it is to be unheard or unsure of our voice. Writing our experiences down has become a shared comfort for a large majority of us.
Recently through the clubhouse app I engaged in conversation with fertility experts (all woc) who suggested that women create a period diary to better advocate for themselves while seeking medical attention. How could your doctor ignore your early signs of endometriosis or fibroids when you are detailing specifically your symptoms?
How much easier would it be to seek support naturally when you have detailed how your body responded whether an increase in bleeding or cramps after eating diary or chocolate. Write it out so you can connect and advocate for you whenever you need to.
