[The Doctors Say] The Pain is Completely Normal

This piece was created to express the pain and fear that artist Alexandra Schiessl-Moore felt after a visit to the gynecologist for severe pelvic pain. The experience was frightening and frustrating.

This is not an uncommon experience; women's health and pain are often dismissed, particularly when it comes to reproductive issues and recovery.
