"My ob-gyn made me think my severe, debilitating menstrual cramps were normal, so I stopped asking about them. I thought it was normal to have my entire life revolve around my cycle. I even had a lung collapse, and the pulmonologist just said it was spontaneous,” says Latia Lee. When the other lung collapsed, Lee knew she had to advocate for her own care. She researched online and found that she had just about every single symptom of endometriosis.
While every case of endometriosis will not be as severe as Lee's, her story underscores what so many women have shared: most doctors either under-diagnose the condition or over-diagnose.
