Have you heard of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)? No, it’s not the same as premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Some say that PMDD is a black sheep in the menstrual family. The bad sister of PMS. We don’t know much about it but those who deal with it have been to hell and back. Others, in turn, try not to demonise PMDD, embracing its presence as being part of them. The part which craves attention uniquely loud and on multiple levels.

Endometriosis — a “topical” subject among women these days. I was wondering why the other day. I’ve come up with an idea that in the past (and very often also today) if a woman was in pain, then everything was alright — either because of menstruation, ovulation, or changes in the cycle. We’re living in the 21st century, we go to the Moon, anyone can have a drone in their house, surgeries are performed by robots which are not even in the same country as the patient — why should we then allow for the pain?
