Traveling with Endometriosis can seem near impossible. Here, six endo warriors share their advice on traveling with endometriosis and how you can too! #endometriosis #travelingwithendometriosis #endowarriors #endometriosistravel #chronicillnesstravel

I am so proud to bring you this post about traveling with endometriosis, with tips from seven endo warriors.

What products can help? There are so many questions when it comes to traveling with endometriosis. That’s why I reached out to these fellow endo warriors to share their best tips. Continue reading

Looking back, it is hard to believe how many places I was and how much happened in May. I traveled a TON – early in the month I returned to the USA from my trip abroad to the UK and Nepal.

February is the shortest month of the year but famously rough AF for a lot of us, including myself!
