Over the next few weeks I will be covering the last two major systems in the body that have a huge influence on our health from the moment we are born until we die. Our reproductive systems generally conform to a set pattern of development, however there are times when nature has its own agenda, resulting in changes that we are now embracing more fully. I am going to begin with the female reproductive system, how it works and links to posts that I have written on related diseases such as breast cancer.This post is not just for women but also their partners. Understanding how your own body works is important.. but it is also important for the men in our lives to understand how our bodies work too. Very often in a relationship it is our partner who notices changes to our bodies or our behaviour that can indicate a health problem.
