Endometriosis Awareness Month!

Endometriosis is a disease that affects over 176 million women around the world. That translates to a tenth of the world’s population. But despite this large demographic, only 1 in 5 people have ever heard of endometriosis, and often their understanding of the condition is minimal.

But its time to change that Endo Warriors! This March is Endometriosis Awareness Month and its time to spread the word! Using #ThisIsEndometriosis we plan on raising public awareness and knowledge for the condition that is endometriosis. We encourage all of you to help join the fight by using your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even TikToks to share your knowledge and experience with the world! Just remember to add the #ThisIsEndometriosis and encourage others to share the message!

For your post some facts you can help share include:

  • 1 in 10 women have endometriosis
