Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus (known as the endometrium), is found outside the uterus, where it induces a chronic inflammatory reaction that may result in scar tissue. Symptoms of endometriosis include painful periods, painful ovulation, pain during or after sex, heavy bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, fatigue, and infertility.
It affects approximately 1 in 10 women during their reproductive years (ages 15 to 49), but many experts estimate that this number is far greater due to misdiagnosis and underreporting.
There is a huge lack of funding, research, awareness, and diagnostic methods for endometriosis. Many doctors remain misinformed, and several women do not have the education and resources they need. We’re here to try and change that.
