    Season 3; Episode 1. Hanna from TN talks about how she pushed through pain a lot and how she thought what she was going through was "normal."

    Hanna talks about her journey from high school to the present day as a Mother. She experienced lapses in her period and frequent UTI's, and it would take her months to recover from these infections.  She went on BC as she started college, she had heavy periods and pain but thought it was normal.  She did not tolerate this well and tried several BC. She stayed on this for years. She still had chronic UTIs while being on the pill.  She reflects back on her family history and it seemed that most of the people in her family did have endo and/ or adeno. 
    Listen in to the rest of her journey here.

isabelle mccauley! ,

I was diagnosed with endo on Saturday, and finished episode 9 of this podcast by Wednesday, lol.

I can’t stop listening.

I have learned so much about endo and for the first time I feel like my lifetime of living in pain has a name.... And it’s scary 😭 but I feel less alone listening

I’m really new to all of this, I’m 24, and I’m SO grateful that women have gone before me to identify what has worked for them and model what it looks like to advocate for yourself! Hearing these stories has taught me that I’m NOT insane even tho doctors have made me believe I am. Oof!

I am really excited to keep listening and keep learning and advocate for the best doctors and best care available. Thank you to the women who have shared - I am taking notes ..🤍
