A link to my article on the damaging endometriosis statistic in Cosmopolitan magazine
I don’t know how many of you have come across the endometriosis statistic in the July 2017 US Cosmopolitan Magazine that has gone a bit viral.
It claims that your risk of developing endometriosis can drop by 50 percent if you orgasm during your period.
I think anyone suffering from this disease will know instantly that this is nonsense. This is based on an old and widely rebutted piece of research, and as an endometriosis sufferer I find the suggestion offensive.
But I will not have a rant about this here, because I did so for The Mighty instead. You can find my article, “Why Cosmopolitan’s sexy Endometriosis statistic is damaging,” here.
