We are incredibly happy to have Christina as a consultant at our side. We found her via – you can hardly say it – Facebook. There, a mutual acquaintance connected us: Anja, who thought that this could somehow fit.
Christina is a licensed gynecologist who trained at the renowned University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf – the UKE – and also worked there. In her early years as a young doctor, she had the opportunity to train in gynecopathology and cytology. She was the liaison between the gynecology and pathology departments there and was part of the cervical dysplasia team – what deals with cervical cancer. It has always been her passion to look at things up close and even better under the microscope.
Her interest in surface cells and functions was further deepened by her PhD in Pediatric Dermatology. During this time, she learned a great deal about the disruptive effects of soaps and detergents on skin and mucous membranes.
For family reasons, she came to the United States in 2003 for her second residency in gynecology. As part of her research there, she studied the relationship between intrauterine antibiotic exposure in the newborn and the later development of allergies, asthma and eczema. This work once again demonstrated to her the importance of preserving the human microbiome.
She then began working in the gynecology faculty practice at the University of Maryland. There, she trained as an expert in vulvovaginal diseases and disorders of the vaginal microbiome. She was also a certified surgeon at the Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG certified).
Today, as a practicing gynecologist, she sees patients in a Baltimore practice.
“Dr. Enzmann has been very helpful to me. She is personable, intelligent and made me feel comfortable talking about such intimate personal issues. I highly recommend her to any woman experiencing menopausal symptoms.”

Here she primarily accompanies women who suffer from particularly heavy menstrual bleeding, fibroids or endometriosis. In addition, helping women with menopause-related symptoms is a matter close to her heart. As such, she is also a certified member of the North American Menopause Society.
Christina is the mother of two children and is fluent in English, Spanish, German and French. She also runs the blog Gyn and Tonic. All of this would be almost unbearable, but Christina is also incredibly likeable. And this spring, she was in Congo with HEAL Africa USA, working with local women doctors to introduce a simple cervical cancer screening program.
Christina, welcome to Team NOBODYTOLDME. We are very happy that you are part of it.
