No more painful periods

From the July 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

For many years, I struggled with painful and irregular periods. I was medically diagnosed with a condition called PCOS and took medicine for a few years, but could not get relief. So I opted for surgery. Even after all this, the condition kept coming back.

At this point I had recently started studying Christian Science. After seeing a quick healing my daughter had through Christian Science and experiencing a healing of fever myself, I decided to turn to Christian Science for this more long-standing problem and called a Christian Science practitioner to help me. She listened to me very patiently, and we discussed some ideas from Mary Baker Eddy’s book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. What really stood out to me was the idea that our starting point is perfection. Our Father-Mother God has created us perfect already, as the spiritual reflection of divine Love, so our prayer is to humbly acknowledge this.

One thing that was also very new to me was that in divine Science, we learn that woman is never cursed. So I don’t have to suffer because I am a woman. God’s love is eternal. God never forgets us for a few days of the month—or even for one moment. Time and materiality have nothing to do with how God knows and maintains us.
