Endometriosis or Endo, as some of us like to call it, is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus, often resulting in chronic pain and other symptoms. It’s not very widely understood, so seeing other people who understand it is like finding gold.

In today’s episode we are discussing advocacy around endometriosis. Today’s guest was diagnosed with endometriosis At the age of 24, Samantha Sanders @_samanthadenae_ was diagnosed with Endometriosis and has since began her mission to educate young ladies and women around the world. We discuss how Black people are less likely to get our endometriosis diagnosed, how doctors are less likely to believe us about our pain, and how Endometriosis can overlap with other conditions that Black people are more likely to have.

This episode is for you to listen to learn more about Endometriosis and how you can be an advocate for yourself and others.
