  1. Just woke up on a cloudy Monday morning in October! After acknowledging my Lord and Savior, I reach for my phone and focus on 2 things: 1) a greeting from an interesting Black Male and 2) I see the Mahogany E-mail. I read Christina’s story from beginning to end. Currently I am not a patient of fibrosis but can identify with severe pain when I had a cycle. Now at 62 and seeking a second career, I want to thank her for sharing her Truth.

  2. In late 2009 I began having very heavy periods. By February of 2010 they were so heavy I stopped going out because I was bleeding through super tampons and pads every half hour. Trying to work was a nightmare. After a trip to my OBGYN and a dnc he discovered my uterus was filled with fibroids. March 2010 I had a total hysterectomy. Best decision ever made. I was healthier and saving a lot of money not buying feminine products!
