Episode 15: 1 in 9 Women – So Why Don’t We Have a Cure Yet?


Episode 15: 1 in 9 Women – So Why Don’t We Have a Cure Yet?

Recently, Lena Dunham wrote a follow up article for Harpers Magazine about the two years since her hysterectomy after an endometriosis diagnosis. Mina and I discuss about the importance of talking about endo and normalising the conversation. We learn that period pain may be common, but it’s not normal.

We also speak to Naturopath and Women’s Health Specialist, Michelle Edwards, about the signs and what to do if you suspect you have endometriosis.
