You get genital warts from having skin-to-skin contact with someone who’s infected, often during vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Which means that the virus can be transmitted even though no one cums, or even without penetration if there is skin contact. You might even be infected without being…Read More

Oh, no, not again! That awful itch. Damning the fact that you are not a cavewoman, scratching yourself in public might not always be socially acceptable. Carefully adjusting your pants might do the trick, but either way, you need to deal with it ASAP. The fungus called Candidia Yeast infection is caused by a type of fungus called Candida. This yeast normally lives inside your body, at places such as the mouth, throat, gut, and vagina. We even have it on our skin, and normally we don’t have a problem with it. However in those occasions where candida decides…Read More

Birth control isn’t only used to prevent pregnancies or skip menstrual cycles. It can also be used to ease pain caused by menstrual cramps, counteract acne and prevent unwanted facial hair. Some of the most painful cramps are caused from a condition called endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition where tissue of the same type as endometrium (the mucous membrane in the uterus) exists outside the uterine cavity, and is usually found on other organs outside the pelvis. These can be identified as cysts or mucous spots. They are affected by hormones the same way as the endometrium in the…Read More

Shortly after being elected, President-elect Donald Trump promised to bring the country together and hinted that he might not dismantle the Affordable Care Act after all. Well, it appears that was short-lived. Earlier this week Trump selected Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), one of the ACA's most vocal critics, as his pick for the Health and Human Services secretary. By doing so, it appears that Trump most likely does intend to dismantle Obamacare. Price has led efforts to replace the Affordable Care Act and introduced bills which would not require insurance companies to accept people with preexisting conditions, increase health…Read More

A Canadian study showed that women pay on average 43 percent more for toiletries and personal care products than men do, and a study in New York showed that women are paying seven percent more. Now, another organization has joined the fight to end unequal gender pricing. Asha Dahya, founder of GirlTalkHQ,…Read More

What would you do if you were homeless and got your period? This question is what inspired Chelsea Vonchaz to create #HappyPeriod when she saw a homeless woman who was visibly on her cycle. After speaking with several shelters, Vonchaz learned that homeless and low-income women are most likely to get donations for toothbrushes and toilet paper, but not pads or tampons. It’s as if people forgot these women experience menstrual cycles as well. As stated on their website, “Our initiative supports everyone that has a monthly flow, including teenagers, nonbinary, and the LGBT community.” A few weeks ago…Read More

By Kayla Lam Little As news arises about Zika virus, contraception is more important now than ever. Why? Because Zika Virus cannot only be received from a bite from the specific Aedes Aegypti mosquito, but also transmitted from person to person via sex and potential connections to saliva exchange from a person who has been affect. Zika Virus is a tremendous danger to pregnant women because it causes various brain dysfunctions and deformities to newborns like microcephaly. Controversies have arisen in many South American countries where abortion is illegal and accessibility to contraception is limited leaving many women feeling…Read More
