We love making new polishes at Poofy, there are always new ones. Here are the latest:
So let's BEAT ovarian cancer with these four easy to remember signs of the disease:
B is for Bloating that is persistent and doesn't go away;
E is for Eating difficulties, e.g., heartburn, nausea, or feeling full more quickly;
A is for Abdominal or Pelvic pain you feel most days;
T is for Trouble with Urination (urgency or frequency) or change in Bowel habits.
These symptoms may be caused by ovarian cancer or by other less serious conditions. It is important to check with a doctor, preferably a gynecologist, about these potential ovarian cancer symptoms if they are new and persist for 2-3 weeks, especially if you experience several at one time.
