  • Half of men can't identify the vagina on a diagram & we're concerned

    Yes, half of men can't identify a vagina on a diagram. Worrying? We think so.

    The Eve Appeal, a gynaecological charity, discovered this after surveying 1000 people. They also found that two thirds have no clue where the vulva is (encouraging) and over half of men (56%) are not comfortable discussing gynaecological health issues with their partner at all.

    The survey was conducted to raise awareness of Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month which begins today. The charity want to illustrate that men play a vital role in raising awareness around gynaecological health because they could potentially spot physical changes in a female partner. As it currently stands, only one in five men feel sufficiently confident to mention a change in their partner’s vagina.

    Over 21,000 women in the UK are diagnosed every year with a gynaecological cancer, which equates to 58 diagnoses each day. Despite this, awareness amongst women is still very low. The Eve Appeal found that 19% of females admitted they wouldn’t see a doctor if they had abnormal vaginal bleeding - one of the key symptoms in all five gynaecological cancers - while 42% of 18 to 24-year-old women said they wouldn't tell anyone about it. Shockingly, just over a fifth of women have spoken to loved ones about gynaecological health including how to recognise the signs and symptoms of gynaecological cancer.

    The Eve Appeal’s chief executive, Athena Lamnisos, said: β€œThese survey results show shockingly low levels of awareness of the symptoms of gynaecological cancer among both men and women. For too many men, women’s bodies are still a taboo subject, shrouded in mystery.

    β€œWe know from the many calls that we receive at The Eve Appeal from men, that they can play a vital role in identifying the symptoms of gynaecological cancer, prompting their partners to visit the GP. Early diagnosis really is key and can save lives.

    β€œThis is not about having better sex! It’s about men helping women to look after their health. Gynae awareness and taboo busting are all of our responsibility, men and women alike.”
