Woman orgasms daily and puts cannabis in vagina after being diagnosed with cervical cancer twice
A 51-year-old woman started orgasming daily, putting cannabis in her vagina and even going vegan after the return of her cervical cancer prompted her to ditch 16-hour work days to “stay alive.”
Antonia Hall, of Los Angeles, California, was so enthusiastic about her publishing business that she worked through her entire chemotherapy when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2007.
But when the cancer returned ten years later and she developed arthritis, Hall decided to end her work-a-holic lifestyle.
She split her time between her home and Maui, Hawaii, where she became a sex therapist and picked up a set of new habits to “ease” the symptoms of her health problems.
But her medical problems continued after she was diagnosed with gallstones — which can cause severe pain — in August 2019 and required a hip replacement.
Hall says she had a “positive mind” while coping with the “perfect storm” of health problems, saying she was “lucky to be alive.”
There is no evidence that working on cancer could reduce the success of cancer treatments, or there is no advice that patients should stop working.
But some research has suggested that stress can help cancer grow and increase the risk of dormant cancer cells waking up causing the disease to return.
Antonia Hall, 51, saw her cancer return in 2018, prompting her to change her lifestyle. She was also diagnosed with spondyloarthritis, which causes pain in the joints. Hall said that caused her to bend over and use a walker. She has now managed to switch to walking sticks (pictured) after a hip replacement
Hall says she’s now orgasming every day, putting CBD in her vagina, and going vegan to help ease her symptoms and maintain a “positive mindset.” She splits her time between Los Angeles and Hawaii
Hall revealed the story in her new book, “The Happy Human Playbook: A Practical Guide to Healing Body, Mind and Emotions with Joy and Pleasure.”
She said Insider that when her cancer came back she “knew I had to change my life if I wanted to stay alive.”
Speaking of her health issues, she added, “It really felt like I was having “The Perfect Storm” of health issues.
What is cervical cancer and how is it detected with a Pap smear?
Cervical cancer affects the lining of the lower part of the uterus.
The most common symptom is unusual bleeding, such as between periods, during sex, or after menopause, but other symptoms may include:
- Pain during sex
- vaginal discharge
- Pelvic pain
Causes can be:
- Age – more than half of patients are under 45
- HPV infection – which affects most people at some point in their lives
- Smoking – responsible for 21 percent of cases
- Birth control pill – linked to 10 percent of cases
- having children
- Family history of cervical cancer or other cancers, such as vagina
A Pap smear detects abnormal cells on the cervix, the entrance to the uterus from the vagina.
Removing these cells can prevent cervical cancer.
Cervical cancer usually affects sexually active women between the ages of 30 and 45.
“After everything I’d been through, I knew I was lucky to be alive.”
To cope with her health issues, Hall began having an orgasm daily, saying, “I believe in having an orgasm every day.”
She now also takes CBD through vaginal suppositories, or when it is placed in her vagina.
Some doctors suggest that this can help relieve pain in the area and increase pleasure during vaginal penetration.
But there’s little rigorous scientific research to back it up.
The method can also be used to relieve menstrual cramps, abdominal pain, and pelvic discomfort.
She has also gone vegan, which some say promotes a healthier life.
Hall was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2007, which, according to Cancer Research UK, is when cells in the cervix begin to divide uncontrollably.
It can cause pain in the vaginal area with an unusual vaginal discharge, with patients normally receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy to treat it – which can take about five weeks.
Survival rates are highest if the cancer is detected early, with 95 out of 100 people with stage one living longer than five years.
In stage four – the most advanced type – this drops to 15 out of 100 people diagnosed five years later.
About a third of women treated for the disease see the cancer return, usually within the first two to three years after treatment.
Hall has not revealed what stage her cervical cancer was at when it was first diagnosed or the second time it showed up.
She said she got dangerously skinny during her second course of treatment, dropping to just 76 lbs.
But the publicist continued to work, even covering shifts while leaning on a pillow in her bed.
She was declared cancer-free a year later, but was then diagnosed with spondyloarthritis – a type of arthritis that causes inflammation, pain, and stiffness in the spine and pelvic joints.
This normally affects people when they are young adults who are still in school or just starting a career or a family, the Arthritis Foundation say. Hall started when she was 47.
It’s not clear what causes the condition, but it’s thought to be linked to a gene that could be caused by mechanical strain on the back — or even an imbalance in the gut microbiome.
Hall said the disease got so bad that she bent over and had to walk with a walker.
Hall was also diagnosed with gallstones which were removed via emergency surgery along with her appendix as a precaution. She is pictured above.
Then, in August 2021, more bad news came when she was told she had gallstones, which were causing her stomach pain.
Hall had emergency surgery to have them removed, and her appendix was also removed as a precaution.
It was at this point that she was told that the arthritis had caused such degeneration in her hip bone that it also needed to be replaced.
Hall said she maintained a “positive mindset” throughout the experience to relieve symptoms and change her life.
She says this has helped her to walk with canes instead of a walker, and she can now move largely unaided.
