Loved this podcast!
I have had endometriosis since I started having periods at age 14. I was officially diagnosed when I was 36 yrs old. I was in the study for this drug and did not complete it, and am glad I didn’t. This podcast was very informative and I agree with Dr Redwine. Great way to get both sides of the discussion out there regarding this new medication. Thanks!
