Northbrook, IL, May 3, 2021—The Instagram Live Chat series “Talk About U” will be broadcast by USA Fibroid Centers on Instagram on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at 6 p.m. CST. “Talk About U” – the “U” meaning uterus – is a new initiative for women to share their stories and discuss fibroids to help create public awareness of this disease that affects millions of women each year.

Fibroids and fertility will be discussed on the live chat that features fibroid survivors and film producer Erica Taylor, celebrity makeup artist Kym Lee and USA Fibroid Centers physicians Aaron Shiloh, M.D. and Jacob White, M.D.
The chat gives women an opportunity to discuss concerns around uterine fibroids and their ability to get pregnant. Medical experts will explain how fibroid treatments – such as uterine fibroid embolism, myomectomy and hysterectomy – can impact fertility, and what questions women should ask their health providers.
The “Talk About U” Live Chat is part of a larger campaign that encourages women to share their uterine fibroid experiences by recording a virtual interview. The aim is to encourage more women to discuss fibroids and eliminate the taboo around talking about menstruation.
Women can share their stories virtually using their phones, tablets or computers. Participants answer a series of questions and have the option to respond via audio, video or text. The testimonials are posted on social media to encourage other women to join the conversation around fibroids.
“We are excited to offer women a social platform that helps them share their stories and serve as a source of motivation and hope for others facing the same challenge,” said USA Fibroid Centers Founder and CEO Yan Katsnelson, M.D. “Uterine fibroids is one of the least-discussed chronic health challenges that women face, yet it is a condition that affects an estimated 70 to 80 percent of women.”
