Women’s Health by LadyBug
Women have many unique health concerns, such as menstrual cycles, pregnancy, birth control, menopausal issues and more. Women's health refers to the branch of medicine that focuses on the treatment and diagnosis and prevention of diseases and conditions that affect a woman's physical and emotional well-being. LadyBug aims to empower women to take charge of their own health, and to have access to a reliable, all-encompassing platform to ask any women health related queries and get responses targeted to each individual and their unique circumstance by physicians. Other than asking questions, you may also read the experiences and journey other women went through, or even share stories yourself! There will also be monthly women articles posted - so do look out for that! Be a part of Women's Health by LadyBug space today!
