Inside My Uterus with Sarah Quinn : A Chat about Endometriosis

58:29

Episode description

On this week’s episode of Welcome to My Vagina, basically almost the most famous podcast in all the land, Jessy and Rebekah interviewed Sarah Quinn who struggles with endometriosis. One in 10 women are affected by this disease and yet the general population, not to mention a lot of doctors, don’t really know anything about it. But that is about to change because Sarah is VERY informative. You’re gonna learn so much. And if you want to learn more head on over to welcometomyvagina.com/blog and check out Sarah’s blog posts about endo. You won’t regret it!

  • 04:00: OMG. Sarah Quinn wrote a letter to Elizabeth Warren about her endometriosis and Warren read it on the floor! And it was covered on C-SPAN! Here is a link!
  • 04:45: FYI for those of you who suck at TV like Rebekah, Leslie Knope is a fictional character on the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation.” She is played by Amy Poehler.
  • 07:00: And again, here is the link to Senator Warren reading Sarah’s letter on C-SPAN. C-SPAN!!!!! So exciting.
  • 08:00: Here is a link to the EndoWhat organization. They are doing a lot of really amazing work and have a TON of information about endometriosis. Their goal is to educate and empower people who have endometriosis and also informing health care providers and policy makers about the disease to ensure that medical knowledge moves forward and proper legislation gets passed to help those who suffer.
  • 09:15: An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg attaches somewhere outside of your uterus – usually in your fallopian tube. These pregnancies are extremely rare but very serious and must be treated.
  • 15:45: Shannon Cohn is the director and producer of the movie Endo What? You can find a link to the webpage here and a link to the Ted Talk that Jessy referenced here.
  • 18:00: Crohn’s Disease is “a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract.” It has symptoms such as fever, loss of appetite fatigue, night sweats and loss of a menstrual cycle. It can cause things like rectal bleeding, persistent diarrhea, constipation and abdominal cramps. Overall is it not fun. AT ALL.
  • 19:00: Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the ingestion of gluten leads to damage of the small intestine.
  • 20:20: This isn’t the same article that Jessy referenced but it does address the issue she spoke about, citing the same data. It’s called “Women and Pain: Disparities in experience and treatment” and it is well worth the read.
  • 20:30: For reference, here is an article by Serena Williams about her near-fatal experience giving birth to her child. It is HORRIFYING.
  • 30:00: Here is an article about the study Rebekah referenced. I mean, come the fuck on people!
  • 36:45: Here is some more information about the Department of Defense funding for endometriosis.
