Endometrial Cancer

What Is Endometrial Cancer?

Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that affects the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium. It is also known as uterine cancer or cancer of the uterus.

The exact cause of endometrial cancer is not known, but it is thought to develop when the cells in the endometrium start to grow and divide uncontrollably. This can lead to the formation of a tumor, which can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated.

Endometrial cancer is the most common type of gynecological cancer in women and typically occurs after menopause. However, it can also affect younger women, particularly those who have a family history of the disease, are obese or have certain medical conditions such as diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), or Lynch syndrome (a genetic condition that increases the risk of certain cancers).

Symptoms of endometrial cancer may include abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge, pelvic pain, or pain during sex. However, some women may not experience any symptoms until the cancer has advanced.

Endometrial cancer is typically diagnosed through a biopsy, which involves removing a small sample of tissue from the lining of the uterus for examination under a microscope. Treatment may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these approaches, depending on the stage and extent of the cancer.



Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a cis-woman’s reproductive years. It is defined as the time when you have not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months, which typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55.

During the menopause transition, the ovaries gradually stop producing eggs, and hormone production, particularly estrogen and progesterone, declines. This decline in hormone production can cause a variety of physical and emotional changes, including hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, sleep disturbances, mood changes, and changes in sexual function.

Menopause can be a gradual process that occurs over several years, known as perimenopause, or it can occur suddenly due to medical treatment or surgery that removes the ovaries. The symptoms of menopause can be managed with lifestyle changes, such as stress reduction, a healthy diet, and regular exercise, as well as hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which involves taking estrogen and/or progesterone to replace the hormones that the ovaries are no longer producing.

It is important to discuss options for managing the symptoms of menopause with your healthcare provider to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs.

I Had Cancer

On December 6th, 2021 I had a laparoscopic total hysterectomy (removal of the uterus and cervix) and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (removal of both fallopian tubes and ovaries. I had stage 1 endometrial cancer and this was the recommended treatment. This procedure meant I experienced surgical menopause.

Hello Wonderful You!

Welcome to My New Blog

My name is Seska, and I am thrilled to have you here. This blog is a space where I can share my thoughts, experiences, and passions with the world. From my health journey and overcoming challenges to my insights on aging, wellness, mindfulness, and everything in between, I am excited to open up and connect with others through my writing. I hope that my words will inspire, empower, and perhaps even motivate you to embark on your own journey toward health and well-being. Thank you for joining me on this adventure, and I look forward to sharing it with you.

More About Me

Since 1998 I’ve been using the World Wide Web to document my life. Yes, even before it was called blogging and video streaming was a thing. What I shared was different than most— my sex life on my independent adult website.

What began as a simple independent adult site and form of expression turned into so much more. It became my life’s work — promoting sexual health, pleasure, and empowerment through the exploration of erotica, personal reflection, sexual experiences, and well-researched resources. 

Then in 2010, a little after the economic crash, I had a crash of my own. My mid-life crisis was rather classic. I was terribly unhappy with where I was in life. I was having panic attacks and struggling to get through each day. The adult industry had changed so much (hello, an explosion of pirated porn) and I didn’t know what my purpose was anymore. To top it all off, my marriage ended. I was lost.

Thankfully, I had this tiny glimmer of hope that told me things could be different. In between the messy mistakes and bad choices, I started making good choices. I tried new things like studying nutrition, mindfulness, and sustainable living. I did a bunch of awesome personal growth work with tools like Danielle LaPorte’s The Desire Map. I made therapy a priority. I got sober. Slowly I came out the other end. I figured out who I was, what I wanted out of life, and how to make that happen for myself.

I made a choice to survive and then took action to thrive. Yes, THRIVE.

I’ve always felt driven to share my experiences and knowledge with others so folks could learn from both my challenges AND my breakthroughs. If you are struggling with life’s challenges, in particular feminine aging, I want this for you too. Yes, wonderful you.

I want to add value to your life and help you live with a little more ease and joy than you had before we met. I do that by writing here on my blog and social media, public speaking, leading workshops, and creating adult-only content from a mature woman’s perspective.
