hEALTH OF lESBIANS
Hello everyone! I have posted this in Politics and Current Affairs because there is no Health one. Perhaps there should be?
My sister is a Doctor and she sometimes gives me advice that is aimed generally at Lesbians and Bis.
I thought I would pass 2 or 3 things on to you that you may, or may not, know about.
Firstly, some of you may have a contraceptive implant.
I do, for example, and get on very well with it. With me it just about stops my periods and I find this liberating and convenient.
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/contracep … e-implant/ this link will give you lots of advice on it if you are interested.
Secondly, there is general information about health of lesbians and Bis at this link - https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/sexual-hea … ual-women/
Finally, some work has been done and continues, about the mental health of Lesbians, and there is evidence that they suffer more psychological problems than the straight community.
This has shown to lead to a number of effects on Lesbian health.
This is an area of health to watch, I think.
