    An awful pain called endometriosis

    An awful pain called endometriosis

    It is endometriosis awareness month and what better way to end the week. When women complain of severe periods every time they have their cycle, they are not looking for attention.

    A few days ago, I saw a post on Facebook, where people were sharing a post of female underwear that had a change of colour.  Obviously, this was done to ridicule and spread the assumption that if your underwear has discolouring, you are unhygienic.

    Two weeks ago, I wrote about vagina discharges and what they could possibly mean to you at that specific time. While we are still digesting that, I want to reiterate that it totally depends on individuals, and not all our vaginas are the same or react the same way to certain things.

    While traveling a while back, I was on the same bus with a lady who had unbearable period cramps.

    For a woman to masturbate, it is seen as desperate for sexual pleasure and/or that they are lonely.

    With my last article still making rounds of conversation on social media, this week, I will keep it a little lighter; menstruation hygiene.
    Acne can affect your life in real ways

    Acne can affect your life in real ways

    I’ve had people ask me to write on acne and its awareness. I have never battled with acne. However, it does not mean I don’t have an idea of the difficulties and emotional damage it does, because I have friends who did. Although acne is regarded as a cosmetic issue, it can affect your life in real ways.

    I was seated in the back of a taxi, sandwiched by two guys. With my headsets on, they probably thought I couldn’t hear or that I don’t understand Oshiwambo. One was narrating his sex story from the previous night with some girl they both clearly know.

     I think I should just call my column ‘Taxi Chronicles with Frieda’ because the many times I have come across conversations on women from men in taxis is beyond me at this point.

    Today’s topic is rather sensitive, but it needs attention because not a lot of people know about it.

    For many years, women have been subjected to being called sluts or whores for using contraceptives.

    Mavutu Conversations - Missed your period again?

    2022-09-30  Frieda Mukufa
    Have you ever wondered why you miss your periods sometimes while you know you aren’t pregnant? Have you ever gotten a pregnancy scare, knowing very well you have been in “drought” the whole time? Well, not a lot of people know this, but you might be suffering from a condition called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

    Even when the number is not high, I am sure there are women who have had a terrible reaction after sex and just did not understand why.
    Mavutu Conversations - Pimple on vagina

    Mavutu Conversations - Pimple on vagina

    2022-10-28  Frieda Mukufa
    I know we all want our coochie skin to look like the Fenty model’s face. But let’s face it, not everyone’s vagina has close to perfect skin. I am sure that every other woman reading this knows what I am talking about – pimples on your vagina. Let me rephrase – ordinarily normal pimples. So, what causes these?
