Like many women with uterine fibroids, Sateria Venable experienced monthly periods marked by heavy bleeding. “The bleeding was just even too extreme for me, so I went to see an ob-gyn and was diagnosed with uterine fibroids at age 26,” Venable says. “I realized that women really wanted to share their stories, and I realized that there were many other women also suffering,” she says. There are many reasons why the condition isn’t more talked about and relatively few investigations have identified opportunities to prevent uterine fibroids. “This foundational garment is for a company that I’m developing, Comferie Lingerie—a line of comfortable lingerie for all women,” Venable explains.
