Bit of a random question but I am intrigued so thought I'd ask.
We all know there seems to be an issue with understanding of endometriosis within the medical profession, sometimes the responses are uneducated, or they're down right derogatory/dismissive.
Can I ask:
- Do you challenge uneducated/dismissive/derogatory comments from doctors?
- If so, does it make a difference whether they're a GP or part of the gynaecologist's team?
- if you don't challenge doctors, what stops you from doing so?
Would be interesting to know what stage you're at e.g diagnosed or not, if diagnosed, for how long?
