If you suffer from uterine symptoms like painful periods and severe back pain, you’ll know better than anyone how it impacts your quality of life. What’s reassuring to know is that you’re not alone. These conditions are prevalent, occurring in up to 69% of women, and other related conditions can also cause mayhem in the uterus affecting fertility and our well-being.
So, what do we do? First off, keeping the uterus healthy should be a part of every woman’s sexual wellness plan. The good news is that there are many preventative practices to support uterine function. While we’re on the subject, the benefits of CBD for uterine health are still being studied but show positive potential, so hooray for that. But this one is all about getting a comprehensive sexual wellness plan to support you day-in-day-out, so let’s dive deep and investigate how you can improve your uterine health and how CBD might help.
Lesson 101 – in the whole getting to know your body bit, you need to get acquainted with your uterus. This pear-shaped organ sits inside the pelvis and is part of a woman’s reproductive system. You’ll find it between the bladder and rectum, and it has fallopian tubes and ovaries on each side.
In terms of jobs, the uterus has that all-important remit of carrying a fetus while it develops and grows. In a crazy, mind-blowing way, this reproductive organ grows alongside the fetus during pregnancy and shrinks back almost to its original size within weeks after birth. Seriously, this is one stretchy work of art. But here’s the other thing, as the uterus is located so close to your other sexual organs it can present a bit of a pain mystery because pelvic pain could be related to the uterus or another organ entirely.
On to the positive news bit! We want to shout out about all the ways you can improve your uterine health and lifestyle choices and help reduce the risk for certain uterine conditions at the same time. Yes, there are many ways to do that! Along with your annual sexual wellness exam (that’s standard – right?), here are some other smart moves.
If you have a condition that’s impacting the uterus you first need help from a healthcare professional. These conditions are serious, and so you must speak to your doctor or OBGYN first before trying CBD, especially if you’re taking any medication. The best approach is to have a comprehensive plan that supports everything from regular screenings to preventative lifestyle choices. CBD can play a part in this plan but should never be your only solution for sexual health or uterine conditions.
In terms of cannabinoid therapy, the experts agree that it varies from person to person. The key to finding your groove is self-experimentation. When talking about symptom management, do the right thing and start low and slow until the desired effects are achieved. For overall sexual wellness benefits, you’ll need to use CBD alongside an extensive self-care plan as we mentioned. Journaling as you go can be beneficial too, helping you to track your experience, dosage, and frequency.
