Persper-eez is not only perfect for hot days but any day you want to be dry and confident.

Here's Another Way to Wear Persper-eez

We’ve heard from a couple of women that they are attaching the pads directly to their bra, laying the bra down on a flat surface and attaching the pads to the bottom edge of the bra, then putting it on. Let us know if you’ve tried it too. info@persper-eez.com.

Who's Taking Care of You?

Women are notorious for taking care of everyone else before paying attention to their own needs and health issues. Being aware of when we don’t feel well and taking action are essential for our overall well-being, even our life. Too often women put themselves at the end of a long to-do list, and by the time they get to their own issues, it may be too late.

Below are some of the top health issues for women. While men may also suffer from these issues, more women die or become disabled more often from them.

Heart disease

More men than women die from heart disease, but women tend to be underdiagnosed more often and die earlier because of it.
Heart attack symptoms for women: Chest pain, jaw pain, shoulder ache, nausea and vomiting, shortness of breath. Women often ignore their symptoms which can be deadly.
Risk factors: Age, heredity, smoking, high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, overweight/obesity, diabetes

Cancer

Surprisingly, breast cancer is second to lung cancer as the leading cause of death for women. While lung cancer is most often associated with smoking (but not always), breast cancer can have a variety of risk factors.
Risk factors: Age, genes, family history, race, obesity, too much alcohol, not having children, earlier chest radiation, early onset of menstruation (before age 12)

Osteoporosis

Men can be affected by osteoporosis, but 68% of those diagnosed are women. While bones continue to strengthen through childhood and into young adulthood, after age 30 they start losing mass.
Risk factors: female, age, small thin-bone frame, ethnicity (white and Asian women are at highest risk), physical inactivity, smoking, excessive alcohol, diet low in calcium and vitamin D
Symptoms can be managed, and bones strengthened through a healthy diet, increased calcium and vitamin D, and weight-bearing physical activity.

Depression

The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that about twice as many women as men are affected by a depressive disorder. Women are social beings and tend to need to be needed (which explains why far more women than men are caregivers, and thus at risk for health issues because their focus is on others).
Risk factors: Family history, marital problems, substance abuse, history of heart problems, serious chronic illness, stressful life event, diseases such as vitamin deficiency and thyroid disease, anxiety disorder
Medication and therapy are often necessary for alleviating depression, but there are many things women can do on their own, such as working outside the home, being part of their neighborhood and/or faith community, developing friendships, caring for pets, and volunteering.

Autoimmune Diseases

Diseases that attack the body and destroy or alter tissues are grouped together under the label autoimmune diseases, including lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS), and type 1 diabetes. According to the AARDA (American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association), 75% of autoimmune diseases occur in women and are a leading cause of disability.
Risk factors: Risk is hard to pinpoint as these diseases are not well understood. Symptoms can be mislabeled and misunderstood so it’s essential that women be their own actively persistent advocate when they know something isn’t right. Continue to press for answers, get 2nd/3rd/4th opinions until you get the help you need.

Stroke

Strokes are a leading cause of long-term disability for women in the US. They can be mild with little long-term issues or life-threatening. It is imperative that everyone know and recognize the symptoms and get help immediately. It is far better to call 9-1-1 and have it turn out not to be a stroke than to pooh-pooh the symptoms and miss the window for treatment.
Risk factors: High blood pressure, smoking, overweight, sedentary lifestyle, elevated blood sugar
Symptoms: numbness or weakness in the face/arm/leg (especially on one side of the body), sudden difficulty seeing, dizziness or loss of balance, abrupt severe headache, difficulty speaking
