    PCOS

    PCOS

    PCOS, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, is the most common hormone disorder in women of  childbearing age, affecting an estimated 116 million women around the world.

    Despite these pervasive symptoms, PCOS remains undiagnosed and unmanaged in most people who have it.

    Gender Reassignment Surgery

    Gender Reassignment Surgery

    Gender reassignment surgery has now been deemed necessary by health insurance companies for both the mental and physical well being of transgender people. But clearly many people, even some medical professionals, still do not see it this way.

    On this episode, we explore some of the problems in transgender healthcare and how the field can evolve.

    Endometriosis

    Endometriosis

    Endometriosis affects approximately 176 million women in the world. It is a chronic illness of the reproductive system in which tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus -- causing excrutiatingly painful periods, heavy bleeding, fatigue, and often pain during sex.

    Yet on average, women see seven health professionals before being referred to a specialist for endometriosis. It is still seen as a pain that women must simply endure.
