The Unmentionables: Embracing gynaecological wellness in young women
Topics surrounding the female vagina can cause embarrassment and discomfort for many young women. As a result, discussions and awareness of gynaecological issues can be challenging for them. It was also found that gynaecology wellness is not addressed in Singapore’s school curriculum. There is generally an insufficient open educational platform for young women to equip themselves with knowledge to take charge of their gynaecological health.
Through interviews with gynaecologists from the KK Women’s and Children’s hospital, and surveying young women about their thoughts on gynaecology wellness, educational materials are designed to promote open conversations about the topic. This provides accessible and contemporary learning resources for young women to better take charge of their own female hygiene and gynaecological issues.
