Endometriosis: Lessons from a Patient and Advocate | Melissa Boudreau

Endometriosis impacts 1 in 10 women and takes an average of 7-10 years to diagnose.  Given it is Endometriosis Awareness Month, I thought this was the perfect time to hear from Melissa Boudreau.

Melissa shares:

  • Her endometriosis story
  • Suggestions for finding the right doctor for you
