Carolina Ambrogini, gynecologist and sexologist at the Federal University of São Paulo, answers to frequently asked questions about sex and health.
First we need to understand what is endometriosis. It is a disease that affects about 15% of women of reproductive age where endometrial fragments (inside the uterus that sheds during menstruation) cling elsewhere outside the uterus, such as tubes, the ovaries, the space between the uterus and the intestine and between the uterus and bladder. These fragments generate an inflammatory process, especially during the menstrual period, which usually these endometrial cells bleed.
We do not know the exact cause of endometriosis but it is believed that genetic and environmental factors are involved. There is no way to prevent it, but an early diagnosis minimizes the damage caused by it. Therefore, it is always important to be wary of endometriosis when the woman feels strong and progressive intensity cramps during menstruation. They are generally those cramps that do not improve with the usual medications and even with birth control pills.
Endometriosis can also cause pain during sexual intercourse. In this case, is that deeper pain in the pelvis, when the penis is already inside the vagina. The woman may also feel pain to evacuate when the disease affects the intestines.
In many cases, however, it remains silent endometriosis, without causing many symptoms. In these situations, the diagnosis is made only when the couple tries to get pregnant and can not. Endometriosis can cause adhesions that cause a blockage of the fallopian tubes, where the encounter between the sperm and the egg.
For it is a still unknown disease, many women still find it normal to experience many menstrual cramps and it goes unnoticed. Therefore, it is very important that every woman go to your gynecologist every year. With a good story and a gynecological examination, the doctor may suspect the diagnosis and ask targeted testing for endometriosis. Generally, an ultrasound with bowel preparation or magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis. The routinely performed tests only diagnose endometriosis when she already befallen the ovaries, ie when it is in a more advanced degree.
Now that you know, be alert to the symptoms!

7:54 p.m. PT: False urgency has shifted toward a significantly more serious tone as Donald Trump’s surprising lead has become the story.
John King is spending a lot of time going county by county through Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire — and now Michigan and Wisconsin, two states that Hillary Clinton was supposed to have easily in hand. Wolf Blitzer is no longer interrupting King and forcing him to jump around the map. CNN has essentially become the John King show with the race tight and leaning in Trump’s favor.
Asked by Blitzer if Clinton has any reason to be encouraged about in New Hampshire right now, King said, “I wouldn’t call anything encouraging for Hillary Clinton right now, to be honest with you, my friend.”
5:49 p.m. PT: CNN is in full urgency mode.
With no swing state far enough along to call, what’s fueling the broadcast is the push-pull between anchor Wolf Blitzer and numbers wonk John King. On King’s touchscreen electoral map, races in swing states such as Florida, North Carolina and Virginia are tight. But as Blitzer keeps calling one candidate or another’s lead “impressive” and interrupting when the numbers in a given state refresh every minute or so, King is offering caution. “A quick footnote if you’re just joining us, these are states that they’re still counting the vote in,” King says at one point, a statement that seems to sum up his role right now.
But Blitzer and the aggressive musics and graphics — not mention the ridiculous Empire State Building projections — are setting the tone for the broadcast right now with what feels like false urgency. Florida and North Carolina were always going to be too close to get a good measure of until all the votes were counted. Blitzer’s near shouting every time another 100,000 votes come in is for show, not because those votes have news value. CNN obviously has massive reporting and data machines powering its coverage tonight, but is just as invested in creating a spectacle as it is to provide thorough reporting.
Meanwhile, the pundit panel has been completely sidelined. Everything is about Blitzer, King and the electoral map, with occasional cameos from Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.
5:19 p.m. PT: Before cutting to commercial, CNN is, for some reason, showing projections of people’s voter selfies on the side of the Empire State Building. On the night when most contentious presidential election any living American has seen is taking place, the immediate logic of a news network touting selfies projected onto a skyscraper is not immediately evident.
The network is also projecting its running tally of electoral voted for Trump and Clinton on the side of the building, which at least makes more sense than selfies.
CNN is focusing narrowly on the presidential race right now, with no mention even in the lower-third graphics of Senate races, even as other networks such as MSNBC are breaking to call races for candidates such as Marco Rubio in Florida and Patrick Leahy in Vermont.
4:17 p.m. PT: CNN has been giving a fair amount of attention to issues in North Carolina, jumping on breaking news that the state’s board of elections will keep polling places in eight precincts open late — though not as late as the 90 minutes that the Durham board of elections wanted. The extensions were a result of computer glitches at polling places that caused massive delays and long lines with some voters being turned away.
North Carolina has been a hub of concern over voter suppression this election, and CNN has turned to the state multiple times throughout the day. Earlier in the broadcast, Trump surrogate Andre Bauer even echoed the sentiments of Democratic surrogates on the panel, saying that he wanted Republicans to win but for them to win fairly.
CNN noted that Durham is 38% African American.
4 p.m. PT: Just before the top of the hour, CNN calls Indiana and Kentucky for Trump and Vermont for Hillary Clinton — it’s first states of he night. Keep in mind that the network barely has any poll results from those states. Is the network making these calls because some threshold has been crossed in terms of data received, or because it’s a way to gin up the drama of the moment?
3:20 p.m. PT: with the first East Coast polls having closed, CNN is entering number-crunching mode — even if the numbers aren’t particularly crunchy. At the giant touchscreen map, Wolf Blitzer and John King pour over vote totals for Indiana and Kentucky — with 1% of the vote having been counted in each state. Both Indiana and Kentucky have long been expected to go to Trump anyway.
With more polls closing at the top of the next hour, CNN is transitioning from “What will the news look like?” to “This is what the news looks like.” As that transition occurs, the network is leaning slightly less on its panel of pundits and surrogates, moderated by Anderson Cooper, and more on data and analysis from the likes of Blitzer, King, Jake Tapper, Dana Bash and political direct David Chalian. But without any real news to report yet, the coverage is all urgency and little substance.
“We have another key race alert,” Blitzer says as the network comes back from commercial — before announcing with the aid of surging music and flying graphics that 2% of the vote is now in in Indiana.
But that doesn’t mean that the panel — which consists largely of pundits with allegiances on either side of the race — is going away. As data moves in, it looks likely that the panel will turn into a spin room of sorts, at least until the race starts to take shape.
2:10 p.m. PT: CNN touts its first exit-poll numbers of the night. On the question of when voters decided on a candidate, 7% said in the last few days, 5% in the last week, 13% in October, 13% in September, and 62% before September. On which qualities matter most in a candidate, 15% answered “cares about me,” 38% said “can bring change,” 22% said “right experience” and 22% said “good judgment.” This is the network’s first new data of the day besides turnout numbers, but it’s being treated as if it’s relating a lot more information than it is. The first polls close at 3 p.m. PT.
More interesting is the exit polling’s breakdown early on of the demographics of the electorate — 70% white, 12% black, and 11% Hispanic. The breakdown of the 2012 electorate was 72% white, 13% black, 10% Hispanic.
11 a.m. PT: Reporting from outside Trump Tower, CNN reporter Sara Murray made note of the lawsuit filed by the Trump campaign Tuesday in Nevada, where Trump claimed that early-voting polls stayed open illegally late to allow voters who showed up after polls closed to vote. Clark County officials, Murray said, claimed that they only stayed open long enough to allow voters who were in line before polls were set to close to vote.
“We have at least our first legal challenge of the day,” Murray said.
9:40 a.m. PT: With polls open from coast to coast, CNN anchors and pundits wrestled with the question of how what was supposed to be a conventional Presidential election wound up being the most fraught and vitriolic in modern history.
“I think we’re missing a yuge sea change here in our country,” said journalist Carl Bernstein, sitting on a political panel on “At This Hour” with anchors Kate Bolduan and John Berman — and appropriating one of GOP nominee Donald Trump’s signature expressions. “And that’s the most significant thing about this election, the idea that a demagogue could run an essentially racist, anti-immigrant, nativist campaign, become the nominee of the Republican party, almost capture the presidency and perhaps capture it — this is astonishing.”
Bolduan attempted to reel the conversation — and the Trump phenomenon — back into the mainstream. “But millions of voters who voted for Donald Trump and millions who support him don’t describe that man in that way at all,” she said.
But Bernstein appeared to fight against the CNN tendency toward false equivalence, arguing that there is evidence within Trump’s biography and the events of the campaign to “talk factually” about that campaign being racist, even if all Trump’s supporters are not.
“In terms of the campaign he ran, in terms of his personal history, in terms of the radical notion of who this candidate is, this is a yuge event in our history,” he said. “It reflects a change in terms of who the people of the country are and how they view our political system, and it is going to reverberate for many, many years. Did anybody think there was a possibility of this when it started?”
The dour, soul-searching tone characterized a broadcast that seemed to be marking time until news worth reporting would begin to pour in later in the day. With no exit-polling yet, much less poll results, a group of panelists with takes more analytic than partisan attempted to make sense of an event that would soon end, but whose final chapter had yet to unfold.
“When Donald Trump announced that he would run for President 16 months ago, it happened during this show,” Berman said. “And I admit that I was one of those people who thought he would never run. Once he announced, I thought he would never stay in the race. Once he stayed in the race I thought he would never win the nomination.”
Aside from punditry, analysis, and hand-wringing, CNN also offered the remotes from polling places typical of election-day broadcasts. Reporter Rosa Flores appeared live from Pottawattamie County, Iowa.
“The word here is efficiency,” Flores said, “Because these poll workers have been working very very hard to ensure that the lines are short.”
The camera then moved to a table in a mostly empty hall behind which sat six poll workers — and in front of which stood one lone voter. As the camera panned the room, it showed poll workers outnumbering voters roughly two-to-one, with most voting booths empty.

WASHINGTON — The presidential campaign was rocked on Friday after federal law enforcement officials said that emails pertinent to the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server were discovered on a computer belonging to Anthony D. Weiner, the estranged husband of a top Clinton aide.
In a letter to Congress, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said the emails had surfaced in an unrelated case, which law enforcement officials said was an F.B.I. investigation into illicit text messages from Mr. Weiner to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. Mr. Weiner, a former Democratic congressman from New York, is married to Huma Abedin, the top aide.
Mr. Comey's letter said that the F.B.I. would review the emails to determine if they improperly contained classified information, which is tightly controlled by the government. Senior law enforcement officials said that it was unclear if any of the emails were from Mrs. Clinton’s private server. And while Mr. Comey said in his letter that the emails “appear to be pertinent,” the F.B.I. had not yet examined them.
By the end of a day that brought stinging criticism of Mr. Comey from both Democrats and Republicans, he appeared on the defensive, saying in an internal email to bureau employees that he had felt obligated to inform Congress, and “we don’t know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails.’’
The new development in the saga over Mrs. Clinton’s handling of classified information came months after the F.B.I. closed the investigation without charging Mrs. Clinton. The announcement, less than two weeks before the election, left Mrs. Clinton’s team furious and scrambling for explanations while bolstering the spirits of Donald J. Trump after a wave of controversies and Republican defections had led many to write him off.
“We are calling on the F.B.I. to release all the information that it has,” Mrs. Clinton said adamantly in an evening news conference that took issue with Mr. Comey for making the disclosure so close to the election. “Let’s get it out.”
Mr. Trump was ebullient. “Perhaps, finally, justice will be done,” he declared at a campaign rally in New Hampshire.
A senior law enforcement official said that tens of thousands of emails belonging to Ms. Abedin were on Mr. Weiner’s laptop, which the F.B.I. had obtained as part of its investigation into Mr. Weiner. About a month ago, a person familiar with the investigation said, F.B.I. agents seized the laptop as well as Mr. Weiner’s iPad and cellphone.
Mr. Comey said in his letter to Congress that he did not know how long it would take to review the emails. Law enforcement officials said they did not know whether any were duplicates of emails discovered in the earlier investigation.
Mr. Trump has fallen behind Mrs. Clinton in most national polls and in many key states. Polls have been tightening in recent days, however, as Republicans have started returning to their party roots during the final stretch of the race.
An emboldened Mr. Trump seized on the F.B.I. action on Friday at his rally in New Hampshire. To cheers of “lock her up” from his supporters, Mr. Trump said: “Hillary Clinton’s corruption is on a scale we have never seen before. We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office.”
After deriding the F.B.I. for weeks as inept and corrupt, Mr. Trump went on to praise the law enforcement agency.
“I have great respect for the fact that the F.B.I. and the D.O.J. are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made,” Mr. Trump said, referring also to the Department of Justice. “This was a grave miscarriage of justice that the American people fully understand. It is everybody’s hope that it is about to be corrected.”
The Clinton campaign called on Mr. Comey to provide information beyond what was put forth in the letter.
“Director Comey’s letter refers to emails that have come to light in an unrelated case, but we have no idea what those emails are and the director himself notes they may not even be significant,” said John D. Podesta, the chairman of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign.
He added: “It is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election.”
Asked in an interview on CNN about Ms. Abedin’s involvement, Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, demurred.
“The facts of the matter is stuff that is unknown to us,” Mr. Fallon said.
The “October surprise” confounded leading Democrats who suddenly found themselves on the defensive.
“This is particularly troubling since so many questions are unanswered,” said Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California. “It’s unclear whether these emails have already been reviewed or if Secretary Clinton sent or received them. In fact, we don’t even know if the F.B.I. has these emails in its possession.”
Donna Brazile, the interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, demanded more information from Mr. Comey about his next steps and expressed concern about the agency interfering with the election.
“The F.B.I. has a solemn obligation to remain neutral in political matters — even the faintest appearance of using the agency’s power to influence our election is deeply troubling,” Ms. Brazile said.
For Republicans who have struggled to defend Mr. Trump amid his comments about women and conspiracy theories about a rigged election, the opportunity to revisit a controversy that has dogged Mrs. Clinton was a welcome gift.
The Republican National Committee cheered the new attention on Mrs. Clinton’s emails as a potential turning point in the race.
“The F.B.I.’s decision to reopen their criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email server just 11 days before the election shows how serious this discovery must be,” said Reince Priebus, the Republican committee chairman, arguing that the Democratic nominee should be disqualified from seeking the presidency. “This stunning development raises serious questions about what records may not have been turned over and why, and whether they show intent to violate the law.”
Speaker Paul D. Ryan, who has been critical of Mr. Trump, assailed Mrs. Clinton and said that she should no longer be allowed to receive classified briefings.
“Hillary Clinton has nobody but herself to blame,” Mr. Ryan said in an emailed statement. “She was entrusted with some of our nation’s most important secrets, and she betrayed that trust by carelessly mishandling highly classified information.”
After defending her email practices for months, Mrs. Clinton sought to put the issue behind her this year, eventually apologizing and acknowledging that using a private server was a mistake. During the presidential debates with Mr. Trump, she tried to avoid the subject and accused Mr. Trump of putting national security at risk by inviting Russian hackers to meddle in the election.
Mrs. Clinton and her staff expressed relief in July when Mr. Comey announced that the F.B.I. had closed the investigation after determining that no one should face criminal charges. But he did criticize Mrs. Clinton and her aides for what he termed the “extremely careless” handling of sensitive information, leaving an opportunity for Republicans to continue hammering her for bad judgment.
The involvement of Ms. Abedin and Mr. Weiner in Mrs. Clinton’s case was an unforeseen twist. Several weeks ago, top Justice Department officials decided that prosecutors in Manhattan would handle Mr. Weiner’s case. After seizing the devices, investigators have been combing them for information.
It remained unclear whether Mr. Comey would reveal more about the contents of the newly discovered emails. In his memo to the F.B.I. staff, it was evident that he is keenly aware of the fraught political backdrop that he faces.
“We don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed,” Mr. Comey wrote. “I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record.”
Ms. Abedin separated from Mr. Weiner in August after it emerged that he was exchanging lewd messages with a woman on social media. Such behavior had destroyed his congressional career and his 2013 mayoral campaign.
Mr. Trump has pointed to Mrs. Clinton’s association with the couple as an example of her bad judgment.
“I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information,” Mr. Trump said in August. “Who knows what he learned and who he told?”
Correction: October 28, 2016
An earlier version of this article incorrectly reported when the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, announced that the bureau had closed its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use. It was in July, not September.
CHICAGO — When the Cleveland Indians arrived in town, they were viewed as a prop. The city was buzzing on Friday, bars in Wrigleyville were hopping before lunch and ticket prices for the Chicago Cubs’ first World Series home game in 71 years were approaching the cost of a college tuition payment.
But the Cubs, chasing their first championship in 108 years, had to play somebody, and the Indians were content to be that other team.
“I’m surprised they’re not calling us that,” said Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who grew up nearby, attending games at Wrigley Field. “That’s fine by us. We’ll be that other team that won the World Series.”
The Indians are halfway there after a 1-0 victory over the Cubs on Friday night, riding an inspiring pitching performance by Josh Tomlin, a pinch-hit, run-scoring single by Coco Crisp and another lockdown performance from their bullpen.Continue reading the main story
When Cody Allen struck out Javier Baez with runners at second and third to end the game, it gave the Indians a two-games-to-one series lead and left the overflow crowd disappointed knowing that the Cubs must return to Cleveland to win the title.
Of course, the Cubs have bigger problems at the moment. Friday was the fourth consecutive playoff loss in which the Cubs have been shut out, including their two defeats in the World Series. And they will have to contend on Saturday night with the Indians’ ace, Corey Kluber, who pitched six shutout innings in the Series opener and has a 0.74 earned run average in the playoffs.
A taut, tense, low-scoring game hardly seemed in order on Friday night, when the wind was blowing briskly out toward center field and balls were flying out of the park in batting practice.
“Sometimes when you see the wind blowing out, you can try to do a little too much,” Cubs left fielder Ben Zobrist said. “I didn’t think there was one particular guy who was doing that tonight. Sometimes before the game, you lick your chops a little bit more than you should.”
Setting the tone for the Indians was Tomlin, who was pitching in front of his father for the first time since he learned he had arteriovenous malformation, a rare tangling of the blood vessels on his spinal cord that has left him paralyzed since August.
Tomlin allowed only two singles and a walk, but Indians Manager Terry Francona’s itchy trigger finger beckoned the superb Andrew Miller from the bullpen with Jorge Soler at second and two out in the fifth. By the end of the night, Francona had made several double-switches and used a pinch-runner for catcher Roberto Perez after he singled to lead off the seventh against reliever Carl Edwards Jr.
“Tito’s card was a mess,” said the Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway, referring to Francona by his nickname. “There was stuff going on everywhere.”
Three moves in particular proved to be fruitful.
First Francona brought on Miller, who retired pinch-hitter Miguel Montero on a liner to end the fifth, stranding Soler. He then used Michael Martinez to pinch-run for Perez, and Martinez alertly advanced to third when a breaking pitch by Edwards bounced away from Willson Contreras. Finally, Francona replaced Miller — who had struck out the side in the sixth on just 13 pitches — with a pinch-hitter when there were runners at first and third and one out in the seventh.
Miller had not hit since 2011. “I don’t know if you could tell by my smile on deck,” Miller said. “I didn’t have a whole lot of confidence in my ability.”
Asked if he knew his career numbers, Miller said: “Terrible. Pretty awful.”
When told he was 4 for 72, he added: “I know we have a lot better hitters on this team.”
One of them turned out to be Crisp, the 36-year-old veteran who began his career with Cleveland, won a championship with Francona in Boston in 2007, and was reacquired in an August trade with Oakland. He lined the first pitch he saw from Edwards into right field, salving the frustration of leaving a runner at third in three previous innings.
If the night was memorable for Crisp and Tomlin, it also was for those who packed the ballpark. Understandably, the first World Series game at Wrigley Field in 71 years was treated like a once-in-a-lifetime affair.
Fans began congregating in Wrigleyville, the neighborhood centered on the intersection of Clark and Addison Streets, early in the morning. Some bars along Clark were charging $25 to $50 just to get in the front door, and by midafternoon, cars were no longer being allowed within a block of the ballpark. By late afternoon, Clark was so congested with foot traffic that police on horseback formed a tight line at the corner of Addison, keeping fans from flooding the intersection.
Cubs Manager Joe Maddon likened his drive to work, spent weaving around cars and pedestrians, to a video game.
“Thank God there’s not another round after this, I’ll say that,” Maddon said. “I’m ready for the family vacation. But it’s spectacular in all the best. Hyperbole definitely suits right now — whatever you want to throw out there, it really matches up to what’s going on right now.”
As Janet and Jack Adams, season-ticket holders from suburban Mount Prospect, sat in the upper deck watching batting practice, they considered that they were born in 1947, two years after the Cubs lost Game 7 of the World Series to the Detroit Tigers.
“It doesn’t seem real to be sitting here,” Janet Adams said.
The shift to a National League park also had an effect on each team’s lineup. Doctors advised the Cubs that playing Kyle Schwarber, who returned from a major knee surgery in April to be the designated hitter in the first two games in Cleveland, in the outfield would be too risky, so he sat on the bench hoping to affect the game as a pinch-hitter. The Indians used Carlos Santana — usually a designated hitter or first baseman — in left field, a position he had not played since 2012.
Schwarber got his chance in the eighth, but reliever Bryan Shaw busted a 2-1 fastball in on his hands, shattering Schwarber’s bat and resulting in a soft pop up.
The Cubs did get a couple of breaks. Soler lofted a fly ball down the right-field line that outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall misplayed into a two-out triple in the seventh. Shaw recovered to retire Addison Russell on a groundout.
And first baseman Mike Napoli booted Jason Heyward’s two-out grounder in the ninth that would have ended the game without much stress for Allen. But so far this Series, those sorts of hiccups have hardly bothered what throughout the playoffs has been considered the other team.
The Indians ruined the send-off for Boston’s David Ortiz. They silenced brash Toronto. And now they threaten to provide another chapter of disappointment for the Cubs, breaking many hearts along the way.
“I love it.” Kipnis said. “Good. I hope I break all of them. I hope I break every single one of them. I hope I come home at Thanksgiving and the off-season, and I want to have a smile on my face when I look at all these Cubs fans.”

Summer Zervos, a contestant on the fifth season of The Apprentice, came forward on Friday afternoon to accuse Republican nominee Donald Trump of kissing, groping and thrusting his genitals on her during a business meeting. She is the sixth accuser to come forward alleging sexual misconduct by Trump this week alone. At least four other women, including two former beauty pageant queens, one business associate and his ex-wife Ivana, have made accusations in the past.
Zervos, the first contestant fired from her season Trump's reality TV show, said she approached the businessman about a job at his company in 2007, after she appeared on the show. They met first in Trump Tower to discuss the opportunity, where she says he kissed her twice on the mouth and asked for her phone number. Weeks later, she says he arranged to meet with her at a hotel in Los Angeles, where Zervos says he kissed, groped and thrust his genitals on her.
Two weeks ago, the Associated Presspublished a report describing Trump's often lewd conduct on-set at the TV show. Some 20 former employees and contestants testified to the fact that Trump rated female contestants and employees' bodies, compared their bodies to his daughter Ivanka's and openly discussed which women he would like to have sex with. Since the story ran, at least one Apprentice producer has said that more damaging tapes exist but that employees are contractually forbidden from sharing them with the press.
Zervos recounted her experience with Trump at a press conference held by her lawyer, Gloria Allred, in Los Angeles. This isn't the first time Allred has tangled with Trump. In 2012, she represented transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova in a suit against the Miss Universe Organization, which threatened to bar Talackova from competing because of her birth gender. During their legal stand-off, Trump told TMZ that Allred would be "very, very impressed" if she saw a picture of his genitals. "I think she'd have a whole brand new image of Donald Trump," he added.
Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon told campaign staffers earlier this week that the campaign beat back the accusations against Trump by focusing on Bill Clinton's scandals. "We're going to turn him into Bill Cosby," Bannon reportedly said of Clinton. Instead, as woman after woman appears with their own unique and similar story, it's Trump whose wave of allegations more resem
bles Cosby's. The fact that Allred is now involved only bolsters that impression: She also represents about half of the more than 50 women who have accused Cosby of assault.
As Zervos and Allred held their press conference in Los Angeles, Trump was in a rally in North Carolina, where he mocked his female accusers, motioning with his hands in the air to imitate their accusations.
He may have to add more impressions to repertoire; as Allred indicated on Friday, more accusers may still be waiting to share their stories. "Many more women have contacted me," Allred said on Friday. "Will they be coming forward? I can't answer that question at this time."
