Podcast: Raising Awareness About Endometriosis

The Endometriosis Foundation has declared March as Endometriosis Awareness Month to help improve education about the condition and provide advocacy for women about their reproductive health. Endometriosis is a disease that affects roughly 1 in 10 women in the U.S. and approximately 200 million women worldwide. It’s an illness that can cause extremely painful periods and is one of the three top causes of infertility.

Join us as Dr. Meike Uhler, who is double board-certified in both Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, as she discusses everything you should know about endometriosis.

  • What is endometriosis?
  • Do you see a lot of patients with endometriosis? Do they know they have endometriosis before seeing you?
