Tracee Cornforth is a former writer for Verywell Mind covering women's health issues. After extensive reconstructive surgery to repair problems caused by childbirth-related pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), Tracee successfully carried her son to term in 1987. She has also dealt with issues such as obesity, menstrual cycle disorders, pregnancy complications, PMS and PMDD, hypertension, hysterectomy, and adoption as she is both an adoptee and a reunited birth mother.
As a teen, her daughter experienced many reproductive health conditions such as abnormal Pap test results, the LEEP procedure and Cone biopsy, as well as miscarriage and infertility. Tracee has also spent time as caregiver to her best friend, and both parents when they each were diagnosed with terminal cancers (colon cancer, lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer).
