On this episode of the GOSH Podcast, we are joined by Jessica Sutherland, a member of the Patient Research Advisory Board for the Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Lab at UBC. She was diagnosed with endometriosis 8 years ago since joining the Advisory Board in 2017, has collaborated on 7 research projects including the development of the newly launched Sex, Pain, and Endometriosis website. During this episode, Jessica and Stephanie talk about the normalization surrounding painful periods and why treating conversations about gynecological health as taboo can be harmful to those who have periods.
Sex, Pain, & Endometriosis recently launched their website, endopain.endometriosis.org, with a goal to raise awareness of endometriosis-associated painful sex and improving care by sharing evidence-based information. You can also find them on social media @sexpainendo.
