Endometriosis awareness 2016

Endometriosis Awareness takes place across the globe during the month of March (and beyond) with a mission to raise awareness of a disease which affects an estimated 176 million women worldwide.

Endometriosis can have a devastating effect on quality of life due to its very painful symptoms; it is the biggest cause of infertility in women, and carries a huge personal and societal cost!

It is time to raise awareness of a disease that affects women – and their families – in their most (re)productive years!
