CEMAG Care acts

Every day, 800 million (3) people around the world have their period.

The menstrual cycle is a natural phenomenon preparing the body for a potential pregnancy. The lining of the uterus (the endometrium) gets thicker and filled with blood and nutrients to allow egg implantation. If no fertilization occurs, the endometrium breaks down and is eliminated through the vagina.

This is the menstrual period, which starts on the first day of the cycle.

Although periods affect half of the population, there is very few information accessible on this particular topic. Lots of issues are either not treated or not known. Pain or heavy bleeding are not always taken into consideration, although they can also be signs of illnesses.

There is no “normal” cycle, every menstruating person has a different experience: frequency and duration of menstruation, heavy flow (menorrhagia), premenstrual syndromes, pain prior menstruation, pain during menstruation (dysmenorrhea), etc.

CEMAG Care aims to listen to womxnThe term womxn includes all cis, trans and non-binary people. and to provide them with a complete range of solutions covering most their needs.
