When I started Brutal Uterus, the idea was just me talking into a mic about my personal health struggles.
But it’s morphed into something much larger than that.
It’s a podcast.
Now with a blog.
Overall, it’s a platform to educate and commiserate with people trying to survive their uterus.
Its purpose took an even more significant turn on June 24, 2022 when the United States Supreme Court went back on 50 years of its own rulings to strike down the federally protected right to decide what to do with your uterus.
But more than anything, it’s a way for me and other people to share their brutal uterus stories so that we don’t have to go through all of this shit alone.
No one was ever coming to save us.
We have to push for equality, and the freedom to choose what your best life looks like.
We need to build wealth so we can funnel it into research, and find better treatments for women’s health issues.
We’ll save ourselves like we always do, as long as we keep fighting.
Behind Brutal Uterus
Maybe you’re wondering who’s behind all of this…
Hey I’m Natasha, a brand a web designer in rural Missouri. Nice to meet ya.
I struggled with endometriosis for years before making the hard decision to have a total hysterectomy.
Between multiple excision surgeries for endo, and a preeclampsia pregnancy that culminated in a cesarean (and a healthy, 7LB, one month early, miracle baby), I have been through the wringer when it comes to women’s health.
Navigating medical care in a state that doesn’t value women was hard before Roe fell, but now, lawmakers are already trying to ban things like IUDs as abortifacients.
An IUD does not terminate a pregnancy. It prevents pregnancy. They prevent pregnancy by thinning the walls of the uterus, which is why it’s also a treatment for endometriosis and many other reproductive issues.
So now I’m here, sharing my own personal heartaches and tragedies, in the hopes that it inspires you to keep going.
Even when it hurts.
