Women’s Stories

Do you have a gynaecological condition, or know someone who has?  Do you feel you need more, than just a diagnosis and treatment?

At GAIN we think it’s comforting to speak to other women who have endured the same, or similar, to us. The following stories are written by women just like you – brave every-day women who have endured and survived. And they share their stories here, for you.

We hope these stories give you comfort, hope and inspiration.

To learn more, or just talk about your own, similiar experience, send a message to  tina.schiavello@gmail.com with the name of the story teller in the “subject line” of the message header.

Would you like to share your story?  If so, we would like to hear from you. For more information, please contact us.
