Gal’s Guide Podcast – Fibroids

After medical emergencies, car accidents, and hormone ragers the gal pals are back! They talk about why they vanished for a short while – no, it wasn’t Thanos – it was Leah’s battle with fibroids. Upwards of 80% of women develop fibroids and this is Leah’s experience. So buckle in because the gals are talking about something that many women think they have to deal with alone.
