A circle for women to talk about our health challenges and successes, share tips, vent, find solace and sisterhood as we navigate illness, health and the space in between.

This is a Female Only Woman Centered Health Support Circle

Guidelines and Rules

Welcome Sister: If you were observed female at birth or assigned female at birth you are welcome here.  If you are not female, you will be banned.  If you are a female who identifies differently than as a woman there is a place for you here but it is not a place for you to center discussions on your identity or police woman centered language.

Please be Mindful: This is a support circle, not a debate circle.  Respect other women's health decisions.  If you have strong opinions on a health topic please consider making your own posts on the topic and not derailing someone else's post or comments, especially if they state they are not looking for advice. Sometimes discussion or debate will also best be had in other Circles, like /o/STEM or /o/WomensLiberation.  Dangerous and misleading information is subject to deletion.

Our Health is not your Pot of Gold: No advertising, spam, sales, MLM, or self promotion of businesses and/or products.

Please be Careful:  This space is not private, this space is not "safe".  Nothing here should be construed as medical advice, posts and comments here have not been vetted by a doctor. Always check in with your primary care provider for appropriate diagnosis and treatment for health concerns.

On Building the Space: When you post your story or comment on someone else's post you are helping build this women's centered support space.  Your voice is important; sharing our stories, gifs, tips and tricks, memes, health news, rants, and raves is important.  There are very few places left that center women, by actively participating you are helping us build this one.

Is this a circle for discussing illnesses like PCOS and common comorbidities?

Yes, anything regarding women's health! It is not limited to reproductive health, 'cause wyms in general need a place to come and talk about all kinds of health related shit without getting shit on, and there aren't a lot of places to do that seeing as how society hates sick women so much it would prefer we quietly disappear into the ether and all that jazz. But I'm mod and I have endometriosis and the gendertrolling in my women's health support groups was just really REALLY getting me down, so I volunteered to mod this one here on Ovarit so I could have a place to complain about my shitty uterus without being piled on for using such horrible no good inflammatory words like "woman". I know the wyms of the PCOS community have also had their spaces targeted by the gender trolls, its absolutely infuriating. Welcome!
