This week on Girlboss Radio, Puno talks about fibroids and endometriosis with our guest Dr. Soyini Hawkins—a gynecologist and surgeon specializing in the minimally invasive surgical management of fibroids and endometriosis. She’s also a women’s health activist, empowering women to be better advocates for their own health.

Did you know that around 80 percent of women suffer from fibroids or endometriosis? That means if you sat down in a room with 10 of your girlfriends, eight of them could have it. So why aren’t we talking about it more openly and regularly? Dr. Hawkins is pioneering the conversation. She talks about everything from how she became a gynecologist and surgeon, being diagnosed herself with endometriosis and fibroids, having intense invasive surgery that put her out for eight weeks (then bounced back and gave birth to two children) and how her personal experience with the conditions inspired her to specialize in the field.
