Ask Me About My Uterus: A Quest to Make Doctor's Believe in Women's Pain

Abby Norman

“Ask Me About My Uterus,” subtitled “A Quest to Make Doctors Believe in Women’s Pain”, by Abby Norman reveals her struggle towards endometriosis diagnosis. This inspiring memoir has it all; medical research past and preset, interviews with experts and patients, scathing evidence on the poor treatment of women by physicians past and present, presenting with chronic pain, all mixed into a broader historical and sociocultural context with a good splashing of humour and scandal.

Why we love it: This book highlights the exact issue that we’re fighting here at Marilyn: women’s pain being ignored. It’s a fascinating, funny, infuriating read that will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced pain.
