Endometriosis is a condition that affects 1 in 10 women and is the second most common gynaecological condition in the UK.⁣

It is a chronic, debilitating condition with no cure. It can cause a spectrum of symptoms including lower abdominal pain, heavy and painful periods. The degree of symptoms and pain you have does not always indicate the amount of damage the disease has done in your body⁣

Do you have or know anyone with endometriosis? What has your experience been?

Since the symptoms of endometriosis vary so much, it can often make it difficult to diagnose. Currently, it takes on average 7.5years for a woman to be diagnosed with endometriosis. ⁣

We have both sat in many gynaecology clinics listening to women detail their experiences with chronic pelvic pain, many just desperate to be heard and have their pain acknowledged. ⁣

We recognise how important it is that you know about this condition and explore whether some of the symptoms you may be experiencing could be due to endometrioisis. ⁣

The above slides give a brief summary into endometriosis. We will be covering more in future posts. ⁣
