We were thrilled to be invited to develop this micro-documentary series about endometriosis for Everyday Health. Given that 1 out of 10 women have endometriosis, and those women often remark that information about the condition is extremely limited, we made it our mission to produce this series with as much important, relatable information as possible to reach a wide audience of women who may need it.
We spoke with three women living with endometriosis about their experience with the symptoms, diagnoses, and treatments pertaining to the condition. It was incredible to hear their stories of perseverance and strength despite the belittling rationale of much of the medical community. Some participants even brought their loved ones to discuss their roles in coping with endometriosis.
We also had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Leigh Rosen, an OBGYN with a comprehensive understanding of endometriosis. She provided expert information and advice for women living with the condition, and urged women to advocate for themselves if they believe this is something that they are experiencing.
It was a truly profound experience to speak with these powerful women about their experiences and learn more about the reality that they face on a day to day basis. For more information and to watch this series, visit EverydayHealth.com.
