It is criminal basic fertility and cycle awareness is not of paramount importance in our children's education

Women's health is a global issue. Western women should have top quality women's health care and by generating that care in Western countries, we can then help extend that care into other countries. Ironing out the shame/taboo wrinkles in the West will have a positive ripple effect globally. In 2020 - these female taboo chains should be broken by now. Thanks for putting this petition together.

There at definitely changes that occur with age. Knowing what changes are normal and what aren’t can prevent a lot of anxiety and may even save a life.

I'm 25 and suffer from Polycystic ovary syndrome and infertility. I wish that when I was in school sex education covered fertility issues, not everyone who tries for a baby gets pregnant. A very unrealistic picture was painted and when I struggled to get pregnant I was angry that the school never mentioned what infertility was.

I started my periods when I was 8 years old they were extremely heavy and painful and finally when sex education classes was introduced, I remember asking anonymous questions about my heavy bleeding and I was given a short simple answer that a woman bleeds no more than 2 tablespoons of blood per cycle and the class was shown what tampons do. I left that class thinking I was going to die and was scared to talk to anyone.

Sex education is a beyond a joke. And for me I found it unrealistic and more damaging than helpful. I hope one day infertility is spoken about openly. I hope GPs will one day care about PCOS and how it effects women. And maybe one day sex education will actually give a real look on what is going on with our changing bodies.

As a female I feel these issues should be discussed a lot more. Physiologically our bodies aren't as straightforward as men's thanks to shifting hormones.

In this day and age we should all be able to access the information and help we need but women are still left in the dark ages surrounding our medical issues.

Lack of information about our bodies and embarrassment to discuss them is one of the key causes I find in my practice for relationship issues.

I wish I had known how childbirth would affect my pelvic floor and learned what I needed to do to keep everything working properly but no one tells you until it's too late!
