But I have always felt this way. Like I was dismissed.

Me too. Especially any pain around the abdomen. I had severe ovarian cysts too and one had burst and I ended up in the hospital for fora week but people there treated me like all all my pain was in my head.
Then I was hospitalized for first second and third degree burns on my chest and at this point. I was screaming they told me to shut up and suck it up. I wasn't brought back until three hours later.

How do we stop it?

It's not just about our sex. Both my daughter's needed ER care in the same week. The youngest was still under our insurance, the oldest wasn't (before ObamaCare). They put my youngest in a private room and gave her the works; xrays of chest (pneumonia. Or bronchitis), meds, shot etc. Two days later I took my oldest, and she was placed on a gurney in the crowded hallway. Took her bp, temp, listened to her chest and sent her home with Rx. Insured versus uninsured is another factor. 🙏🌼
