Ep44: It’s Not in Your Head – Medicine’s Sex and Gender Bias. Part 1

Ever wonder why so many doctors dismiss the pain of people assigned female at birth or make us feel like (or outright tell us!) that our symptoms are all “in our heads”? This is part 1 of 4 in our series on the Sex and Gender Bias in Medicine and how it affects people assigned female at birth. In this episode, we talk about what this bias is, how it may negatively affect us, and how it may be partially responsible for the long delay in diagnosis for endo patients. While seeking treatment, this bias may be one of several that we face due to our intersecting identities. CONNECT WITH US! INSTAGRAM: @in16yearsofendo WEBSITE AND RESOURCES: insixteenyears.com
