Endometriosis Awareness
  • Endometriosis Awareness Month is an initiative
    held across the world in March (and beyond). Its
    mission is to raise awareness about the disease,
    which affects an estimated 176 million women of
    reproductive age worldwide.

What is Endometriosis?
  • Endometriosis affects women and occurs when
    tissue similar to the lining of the womb (uterus)
    grows in other areas of the body. This growth is
    seen mainly in the abdominal cavity. Some women
    experience a severe case of Endometriosis where
    the growth is found in other organs of the body
    (although this is quite rare). So far, neither a
    cause nor a cure has been found for this disease.

Endometriosis Facts
  • 1. Endometriosis affects an estimated 10 of
    women between the ages of 15 and 49, which
    translates to roughly 176 million women around
    the world.
  • 2. Around 24-50 of women experiencing
    infertility issues tend to suffer from
    Endometriosis.
  • 3. Because symptoms of Endometriosis are often
    passed off as a normal part of menstruation, on
    average it takes 7.5 years from the time when
    Endometriosis symptoms first appear to its proper
    diagnosis. This is why awareness about the
    disease and its symptoms is the key to
    controlling it.
