Question Pectus Excavatum

I have p.e and wondered if women also get this? I have little confidence with women due to the deformity (although it isnt severe, it makes me shy about showing my body).

Re: Pectus Excavatum

Yes women do get it! It is usually genetic. My boyfriend has pectus excavatum and I don't notice it. I actually have pectus carinatum which is the opposite - my sternum juts out. We are all unique - do not limit yourself, you are fine any way that you are.

Honey, any woman who would judge you negatively because of the PE does not deserve you! Don't give them the time of day.
