Topic: The Doctor Will Not See You Now: The Misdiagnosis of Women

It is a documented reality that women are misdiagnosed more frequently than men, due to cultural norms, lack of research, and implicit bias. Some women spend years shuttling between doctors searching for answers only to find that the disorders other doctors missed or misdiagnosed were potentially life threatening. Why are women so much more vulnerable to misdiagnosis? How can we take control of our healthcare and ensure that our medical needs are being met, especially as we age and our hormones change? How can we ask the right questions, demand thorough responses, and be our own best advocates? Let us share our collective wisdom and insight in offering one another advice and support.
