Did you know not having a child opens up women to increased risk of all types of gynecology cancer later in life? (2-3x increased occurrence of uterine cancer)

I didn't know that. I feel like I should have known that. I feel like everyone with a uterus should know that.

Obv not to challenge/change our choices, but to increase our medical surveillance.

Diabetes, obesity, and hormone therapy have similar increased risk profiles and you hear about those all the time.

But you know, those are things docs can guilt patients for without reprimand so I guess that's what matters 🫠🙃
