How to find experiences like your own
There are more than 2,000 Personal Experiences here, and it can be hard to find exactly what you want. Here is a way to search through them.
Personal stories can be very helpful, but they may not give a true picture of the success rate of a treatment. See the Treatment section for more accurate information on success rates.
