“One of the biggest misconceptions is that we have to suffer because of our menstrual cycles.”
“If there was ever a type of pain that has been normalized, it’s uterine pain. That’s crazy. If you need to take more than two ibuprofen, or you have to stay home for any reason, that to me indicates that there’s something deeper going on.”
“Some days you feel like a superhero and then other days, you can’t pick yourself up off the floor. Knowing that it probably has something to do with your hormones is extremely helpful and validating.”
