In her book, she addresses issues that, as a younger woman, you may have avoided broaching for fear of judgment or ignorance, especially given the fact that most schools do not offer a comprehensive education on the health of female students.

This book’s author states that she wrote it so that women could free themselves from the discomfort that is connected with menstruation, and embrace full responsibility for the way their bodies function. There are probably some mature ladies who wish they could have read a book like this when they were younger.

The author shows sympathy toward women who are unfamiliar with their own bodies as well as their menstrual cycles. This volume is not overly thick, but the author, Perfecta Osawaru, has still managed to include a significant amount of information that is of use to the reader.

Some of the readers will learn knowledge that is absolutely new to them, and I feel that even just the descriptions of the many body kinds will be reassuring to a great number of individuals who are unsure about their own.

The writing of the book occasionally became a little too technical; nonetheless, even in the technical parts, the author dotted the text with nuggets of wisdom such as: Keeping a journal enables you to keep note of the symptoms that you experience, which can assist you in gaining a better understanding of what is happening in your body.

Among the many topics covered include understanding the mental trauma that creates menstruation drama, fasting intermittently, and eating different types of seeds to balance and preserve your hormonal health.
