A charity webinar discussing various intimate issues and taboos around womens health will take place in early November and feature leading health experts.

Hosted by Bella Vou Pantiles Clinic in Tunbridge Wells , the Womens Intimate Health Webinar will offer simple solutions to women with the aim of helping them feel their best during any stage of life.


With tickets costing 15, the event will take place on Thursday, November 12 between 7pm and 9pm.

Those attending the webinar will get the chance to hear from women's health experts on various topics from the comfort of their own homes.

The event will focus on how women can maintain intimate health, ranging from managing common symptoms and being alert for abnormal symptoms to looking after sexual health and sexual satisfaction.

There will also be talks about help to maintain continence, achieving balance with a natural approach as well as a practical food preparation demonstration.

This will be such an interesting and informative event that will address sensitive and intimate issues concerning women but in a friendly and relaxed environment, said Dr Gail Ball, who provides Womens Health Services at Bella Vou Pantiles Clinic.

Attendees are encouraged to engage and interact with the experts and to ask questions. Bring your drink and a friend and enjoy a break with us.

The guest speakers at the event will include:

All the proceeds from the ticket sales will go towards Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust and Endometriosis UK to help and raise awareness of the charities and the women it supports.

All leading medical experts encourage women to talk and to not be tentative or embarrassed if they need to ask sensitive questions.

It is more than likely that your health expert or doctor would have heard it all before anyway and that your condition is pretty common.

For example, a lot of women may end up unexpectedly wetting themselves whilst out for a run or while theyre laughing.

But contrary to what many people may think, NHS figures say that between 3 and 6 million people in the UK have some degree of urinary incontinence.

Sensitive health concerns can range from natural body quirks to potentially life-threatening conditions.


Hormone imbalance, for example, is a common condition among women and can be associated with illnesses such as diabetes and thyroid conditions.

If left untreated, hormone imbalance can result in other medical conditions too such as growth disorders and reproductive disorders as well as tiredness, acne, hair growth, hair loss, weight gain and weight loss.

And then of course we have cervical cancer that occurs most often in women over age 30.

Did you know that the most important risk factor for cervical cancer is chronic infection by certain types of the HPV, which is passed through intimate skin-to-skin contact, during sex with someone who has the virus?

Other risk factors include smoking, having a weakened immune system, having had a chlamydia infection, being overweight, being exposed to or taking certain hormone treatments, and not having regular cervical cancer screening tests.

All of these subjects and more will be addressed at the Womens Intimate Health Webinar .

Based in Tunbridge Wells, Bella Vou Pantiles Clinic combines cutting-edge surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments as well as clinical excellence with luxury, comfort, and discretion for its clients.

Clinics like Bella Vou are seeing a surge in appointments as a growing number of patients are turning to private treatment to beat rationing and delays at the NHS, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to figures released in August by healthcare tech company Medefer, over 15 million people are currently waiting for treatment on the NHS's 'hidden waiting list' - that amounts to almost four times higher than the official 3.9million.

The official waiting list of the NHS shows the number of patients yet to have their first hospital appointment after a GP referral.

It stands at 3.9million and that has so far remained fairly constant during the pandemic. But that doesnt apply to long waits that have increased substantially.

Endometriosis is another disorder that may not easily get diagnosed or can get misdiagnosed by GPs due to time restraints.

This condition occurs when tissue similar to the lining on the inside of a uterus or womb grows outside of the uterus or womb where it doesn't belong.

This in turn may lead to swelling and bleeding. Around one in ten women endure unrelenting pain as a direct result of endometriosis that affects every aspect of their lives each day.
