What do you call your...

There are SO many ways to call your lady parts (and I mean all them parts, not just the ones that are down under).Well, of course there is vagina, breasts, vulva, and all the correct biological terms for our anatomical parts. But usually we don't really think of our parts in those terms. Boobs, vag, nethers, hooha, are words that usually seem to roll off the tongue a little easier in our everyday conversations.

Some more to muse:
Box (or the box, or love box, or any derivation thereof)
The girls
Lady humps
Double trouble

So readers, what do you call your lady parts?

Prochoice Periods

From the ladies at Gyno Gab: "Having monthly periods, or intermittent periods or no periods is a woman’s choice, there is no detoxification component to the menstrual blood."

As we are able to control our periods, even skipping the whole process all together by taking hormonal birth control without an "off" week, many have been concerned about the possibility of side effects from not menstruating on a regular basis. Well, as Gyno Gab points out, there is not detox element to having your period, since you are only really faking the whole ovulation cycle anyway. But there are some issues that may arise -namely, breakthrough bleeding and not knowing if you are preggers. So you need to make sure that you are taking your pill regularly, and if you have any signs of being knocked up (hurty boobs, wanting to hurl), take a pregnancy test. 

Other than that, it is really your choice when you want to get your period!

Dropping eggs

Random fact of the day: Each month we actually have ten to twenty follicles (little holders that contain baby eggs) that start maturing, but usually only ONE actually makes it to full grown "adulthood" and actually releases the adult egg. The rest just get reabsorbed into our body.

First posts...

Hi there blogosphere!

Welcome to my blog, where I will be discussing all things in relation to our lady parts. Some days I may be sharing an interesting fact that many women may not know, other days I may answer a "WTF is going on with my body" type of question, and I am sure there will be days where I will be giving you my latest opinions of research findings, or basically generally blabbering on something that I find interesting.

I am hoping that your comments and questions help drive the nature of this blog, and that hopefully we are able to build a little virtual community, one that is supportive of all things related to women's health, non-judgmental, and totally sans snarkiness.

Should be fun, exciting, and hopefully informative!
Stay tuned....
