Since 16 yrs of age I endured severe cramping with menses. Told by former OB/GYN it's "normal." When pressed, he said it was probably cysts. Not agreeing & crying in horrid pain, a friend recommended me to a young female OB/GYN, Dr. Karen E. Lee who took time to listen, take my history, and do gentle full exam. She confirmed what I suspected, Endometriosis. We did laser ablation which provided significant help for many years. That was back in 1997 when Endometriosis was not even completely accepted as a disease by many OB/GYN in CA. Have been seeing her ever since. She is a warm gentle spirit, and a fabulously caring supportive doctor.
