Are You Tired of NOT Getting Answers to Your Women's Health Questions?

Do you have questions about your health that you just can’t seem to get answered? Have you ever felt like your concerns weren’t taken seriously? You’re not the only one!

Menopause, weight loss, fertility, metabolic health, and mood health. These are all common health concerns unique to women (and people assigned female at birth) or that affect women disproportionately.

Yet, these issues are often overlooked and undertreated. 

Despite advances in healthcare, a decades-long scarcity of clinical research and data on women’s health has led to gender disparities in both treatment options and health outcomes. For example:

  • Pregnancy-related deaths remain high – particularly in the US. More than 80% of pregnancy-related deaths are preventable, according to the CDC.1
  • Infertility affects 1 in 6 couples worldwide.2
  • Obesity – a significant risk factor for metabolic disorders like type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol – is more prevalent among women than men.3 Research shows that women have a harder time losing weight than men.4 Women are also more likely to develop metabolic syndrome than men, particularly after menopause.5
  • Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death among women.6 But because women may experience CVD symptoms differently than men, CVD in women is often underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed.7
  • More than 80% of women experience menopausal symptoms, ranging from hot flashes and night sweats to mood changes, sleep disturbances, and vaginal dryness.8 Most perimenopausal and menopausal women remain untreated even after seeking clinical help for life-disrupting symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats.9,10
  • Women are almost twice as likely as men to experience mood disorders.11,12

Spreading hope and awareness

While you may feel frustrated – even angry – by these stats, there is hope on the horizon. Women’s health issues – like menstruation and menopause – have moved from topics only to be discussed in whispers to fodder for social media posts and refreshingly candid conversations with high-profile females.13 Clinical research is expanding to include more women as study participants and include biological sex as a clinical variable.14 Additionally, new guidelines are emerging for healthcare practitioners on treating women’s health issues.15

As a woman-owned and mostly women-run company, we’re excited to see women coming together to talk about the health concerns that may be keeping us awake at night. We also know that knowledge is power. So, to spread education and awareness about women’s health issues, we’re hosting a Women’s Health Summit – a free, live, virtual event you won’t want to miss.
