To My Gynecologist, From a Sexual Abuse Survivor With Endometriosis

Dear Gynecologist, My name is Monika and I am a child sexual abuse survivor with endometriosis. I’m writing to you today to voice my concerns with those in your profession about your proficiency in interacting with patients like me within your practice.

I understand that there isn’t much emphasis on what is called “trauma-informed care” in your training and frankly, it shows.

I have been to numerous gynecologists throughout my life and each experience was worse than the previous one. Pelvic exams are uncomfortable at best for all women, but for women with a trauma history and a chronic illness requiring more frequent visits to a gynecologist, the experience can be downright traumatizing.
