Endometriosis Awareness Month

Personalized Cause

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month!

Endometriosis is a fertility health issue that happens when cells or tissues similar to the tissues that form the uterine lining (the endometrium) relocate and begin to grow outside the uterus. Endometriosis can grow in and on the organs of the pelvic cavity – ovaries, fallopian tubes, bowel, etc. Some women experience endometriosis so severely that it is found on other organs throughout the body (although this is rare). So far, neither a cause nor a cure has been found.

"Endometriosis can have a devastating effect on quality of life due to its very painful symptoms; it is the biggest cause of infertility in women, and carries a huge personal and societal cost! It is time to raise awareness of a disease that affects women – and their families – in their most (re)productive years!” ~Endometriosis.org

Folic Acid Awareness Week

Personalized Cause

It's Folic Acid Awareness Week!

Folic acid is a B-vitamin that is necessary for proper cell growth. If taken before and during early pregnancy, folic acid can prevent up to 70% of some serious birth defects of the brain and spine, called neural tube defects.

The CDC and the U.S. Public Health Service recommend that all women between the ages of 15 and 45 consume 400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid daily to prevent two types of neural tube defects, spina bifida and anencephaly. Since these birth defects develop within the first few weeks of pregnancy, it is important to have enough folic acid in your body BEFORE becoming pregnant and to continue getting enough folic acid during early pregnancy. Women need folic acid even if they are not planning to become pregnant since almost half of all pregnancies in the United States are unplanned.

Women who could possibly become pregnant can consume 400 mcg of folic acid every day.

In addition to getting 400 mcg of folic acid from supplements and fortified foods, it is important to eat a diet rich in folate. Folate is a form of the B vitamin folic acid. It is found naturally in some foods, such as leafy, dark green vegetables, citrus fruits and juices, and beans.

Hispanic babies are more likely than others in the U.S. to be born with a neural tube defect. The CDC reports that Latinas in the U.S. consume less folic acid and have the least knowledge about folic acid than non-Hispanic women.

Cervical Health Awareness Month

Personalized Cause

May the year 2017 bring you health and happiness!

New year, new month, new causes!

Cervical Health Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about how women can protect themselves from HPV (human papillomavirus) and cervical cancer. HPV is a very common infection that spreads through sexual activity. It’s also a major cause of cervical cancer.

About 79 million Americans currently have HPV. Many people with HPV don’t know they are infected. And each year, more than 11,000 women in the United States get cervical cancer.

The good news?

The HPV vaccine (shots) can prevent HPV.
Cervical cancer can often be prevented with regular screening tests (called Pap tests) and follow-up care. Cervical cancer screenings can help detect abnormal (changed) cells early, before they turn into cancer. Most deaths from cervical cancer could be prevented by regular Pap tests and follow-up care.

How can Cervical Health Awareness Month make a difference?
We can use this opportunity to spread the word about important steps women can take to stay healthy. Here are just a few ideas:

Encourage women to get their well-woman visit this year.
Let women know that most insurance plans must cover well-woman visits and cervical cancer screening. This means that, depending on their insurance, women can get these services at no cost to them.
Talk to parents about how important it is for their pre-teens to get the HPV vaccine. Both boys and girls need the vaccine.
