Saschan Fearon-Josephs joins Suriya to chat about failings in medical care for women with reproductive health problems, and how to deal with shame that can come from family members or medical staff. This episode features discussions that focus on the vagina, the vulva, and other female reproductive organs – plus practical tips for sex if you have endometriosis.

Saschan started blogging her experiences nine years ago, writing with humour and honesty, countering the myth that young people don’t suffer from chronic illnesses. She set up The Womb Room to hep women advocate for themselves, and undo some of the shame and indignity that arises from a patriarchal society.
