9 Major Warning Signs of Cervical Cancer You Need To Know

July 20, 2015 2 min read

Cervical cancer is caused by HPV (Human Papillomavirus), a virus transmitted through skin to skin genital contact. HPV is common, so it is important to get a regular pap smear to detect it. It can cause abnormal cell changes which result in genital cancers, most commonly cervical cancer. This form of cancer has a 68% survival rate, but if caught in it's earliest stages, that rate increases to 91%. Here are the 9 major warning signs to look for when it comes to cervical cancer: #1 Pain During Sex An unusual onset of discomfort during sexual intercourse could be a red flag. #2 Loss of Bladder Control The bladder is an area of the body which cervical cancer can spread to. Another sign to look for is a slight hint of blood in your urine. #3 Urinary Discomfort This could be just a urinary tract infection, but it is always smart to have it ruled out that is not a warning sign. #4 Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding If you are bleeding between periods, after sex or you are post-menopausal, this can be a major red flag. #5 Abnormal Vaginal Discharge Discharges are common and can be attributed to yeast infections or just certain times of the month. But if you experience one that is particularly strong smelling, bloody or brownish than contact your doctor. #6 Body Pain Pelvic pain, or pain in the legs and back are most frequently associated with cervical cancer. If pain comes on suddenly and is severe, this could be a warning sign. #7 Unexplained Weight Loss The presence of cancer can speed up the process of fat burning at a very high and unusual rate. #8 Tiredness If you are feeling constantly fatigued and experience any other symptoms listed, see your doctor. #9 Longer Periods If your periods become increasingly heavier and last longer, this could be for many reasons. But ruling out cancer is the most important first step. What are your thoughts? Share them with us! Do you follow us on Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
