In this episode, Kathryn and Chloe discuss the topic of endometriosis and Chloe’s personal story. 1/10 women have endometriosis in their reproductive years, yet many take years to be officially diagnosed. Chloe shares her story about discovering symptoms from as young as 10 years old and her experience with all of the tests she needed to understand her pain. They discuss the mental health impacts that come with endometriosis and the importance of not suffering in silence. Chloe also shares how much yoga has helped with pain relief and overall wellbeing.
