Since ancient times, all manner of diseases have been attributed to the uterus. Theories range from a wandering womb yearning for motherhood to the psychological disorder of hysteria that was contagious. The treatment of women with these 'diseases' were reprehensible and the some of the outcomes were nothing short of tragic.

Fortunately, we have come a long way to understanding the plethora of gynaecological conditions and treatments. In this episode, we examine the pathology of endometriosis.

What the world needs more of right now, is everyone talking about women's health. Steve Davis and Dr Travis Brown discuss this history from antiquity to the twenty-first century. However, they did call on special guest Dr Nicole Sladden to keep them in check.
