YOUR HEALTH: FAQs

Text Size: Normal / Medium / Large
Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Our FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) are intended to briefly address questions we’ve often been asked about women's health. They're women-centred, have a feminist analysis, and are meant to assist women to make their own decisions on their health care. We try not to over-simplify the issues, and if there are disagreements in the medical or popular literature on a topic we point those out as well.
These FAQs cover a wide range of topics but are not exhaustive. They are also not meant to be a substitute for medical advice. When you have questions about your health, it is always advisable to ask a health care practitioner.
Please note that, given our limited financial resources, many of these FAQs have not been revised recently, and may not always reflect current knowledge.
