Women's Health

A ten-year-victim, as a female teenager, of the (Chinese Communist) “Cultural Revolution”, I found my life under the heavy impress of the abusive and brutal actions of Communist party cadres in that period. Because my father was a “counter- revolutionary” intellectual and I — thus — the child of a bad person, I was forced to work in the fields and to do all the dirty work, as a means for the peasants to exact revenge against a privileged middle-class girl from the city. This included dealing with human and pig stools as well as soaking my feet for long periods in cold-water swamps during the implementation of agricultural water projects, in particular when I was having my menstrual period. In consequence of too much of this sort of exposure, I ceased to have periods for an entire year. After I drank many bags of herbal formulas, the menstrual cycle finally returned, but with heavy cramping and a darkly clotted flow. Each cycle was a “hellish” experience. Both my physical and mental health were ruined for many years by the reckless dictatorship with its oppressive political ideologies and inhuman practices.

My dream was to become a gynecologist so that I would be able to help other women suffering from female discomforts.
