So much dismissive, careless and negligent attitudes towards endocrine and gynecological conditions that exclusively affect us.

Every time you have chronic symptoms regarding pelvic pain, menstrual cycles, hormonal imbalances, etc, they treat you as an inconvenience and frivolous whiner. Do physicians only want to treat men, children, and the elderly?

I assumed that female doctors would try their hardest to deviate from the groupthink and echo chamber regarding the sexist beliefs used against female patients. But a lot are just as bad as their male counterparts. They were the main ones that were eager to refer me to a psychiatrist when I reported severe pelvic pain and other complex symptoms.

I wish medical negligence was given the same amount of public attention as other types of abuse from higher positions of authority.

Sadly their training focuses more on men and research more on what affects a male body
