2 Words, 2 Years, 5 Posts You Need to Read
Women's health. Two words, so many topics. Of course, everyone is passionate about different issues. That's why we try to discuss many subjects on the OWH Blog, often through the voice of a woman who has a deep and personal connection to that topic. It's been two years since we launched our blog, and to celebrate our anniversary, I want to share five of my favorite posts and why I think every woman should read them.
"I wish someone had told me that at first, you feel like he's the best thing that ever
happened to you.... But then he quickly, often without you noticing, gets possessive

ex–husband, reminding us that interpersonal violence can happen to anyone and it's
never the victim's fault.

Ever written a letter to your younger self? Well, this is mine for every 20–something

life lessons and healthy habits. Life is all about the process.
Human papillomavirus, more commonly known as HPV, is the most common
sexually transmitted infection in the United States. In most cases, HPV goes away
on its own. But when it doesn't, it can cause health problems like cancers and
genital warts. Chelsey Delaney shares what life is like with HPV and what she
thinks you should know.
Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States, but a heart attack
may not always be so easy to spot. That's why all women need to know the most common
symptoms of a heart attack. Recognizing the symptoms and acting quickly can help save
your life. Read my post to help you learn the signs of a heart attack.
