Hey! I’m a college student and Im really struggling with getting doctors to take me seriously and help me. Did you struggle with this and how did you finally get help?

    I struggled with not being taken seriously as well, and I ending up switching my PCP a few times until I found one who listened to me. If you can jump around to different doctors until you're satisfied, you could try bringing a parent or a male friend. It seems like being a young woman is just not great when you're trying to advocate for yourself :/
