Underwear Bleaching

Have you ever noticed small patches in your underwear have changed colour, or bleached slightly like this? Has this ever worried you or freaked you out?   Simply put, this is called bleaching, and it's completely normal.

WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS?

Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women. It is an incurable gynaecological disorder that in some is symptomless; in others it is painful and extremely debilitating. Endometriosis occurs when the endometrial lining, normally located inside the uterus grows outside the uterus. This can occur in the pelvis, peritoneum, ovaries, vagina, fallopian tubes, uterosacral ligaments, rectum, bladder, and intestines. The problem is that too often the disorder isn’t diagnosed, leaving women suffering pain that lasts years undiagnosed & unexplained!   Photo: Cristina Gareau WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT ENDOMETRIOSIS The endometrium lining covers the uterus walls. It thickens during the cycle to prepare the uterus for a possible pregnancy, if there is no egg fertilization during ovulation, it disintegrates and releases, this is...
