I am SO TIRED OF ACTUAL MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS telling me to just get pregnant. So, in honor of the fact that Endometriosis Awareness Month just wrapped up, I’m out here busting these myths. It’s time for another lesson in Endo 101.
Misconceptions (and flat-out lies) are particularly insidious when it comes to endometriosis. Why? So little is really known about endo that it creates fertile ground for ::ahem:: fake news, and while most are well-meaning, many doctors and other healthcare practitioners are the ones spreading these myths. To their patients. Who are desperate for answers and plans. And who may very well make choices about their health that are irreversible and uninformed through no fault of their own.
