About the event
Up to 75% of women treated for breast cancer will experience one or more troublesome pelvic symptoms, yet we just aren’t talking enough about this! Women report being reluctant to mention their pelvic health concerns to their healthcare providers and clinicians report rarely asking about it. As a result, millions of women are “suffering in silence.”
Knowledge is the first step to breaking this pattern…. It’s time to crack open the conversation on pelvic health after breast cancer!
In this 60 minute workshop, we are going to review our female anatomy and how breast cancer treatments cause “menopause at the flick of a switch.” Specifically, we’ll dive into the concept of Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause and what you can do to manage these symptoms, including the use of moisturizers and lubricants (yes there IS a difference between the two!) You’ll also learn when reaching out for more help would be helpful and how to find that help.
Materials: Snuggle up with a warm cup of tea, a notebook and a cozy blanket. Nothing special is needed except your welcoming faces and any questions you may have.
Cost: Free, and donations are greatly appreciated!
