Facts about Endometriosis:

Endometriosis affects an estimated 176 million women worldwide during their most reproductive and productive years.

Many of these women struggle daily with the symptoms of endometriosis:

• Pain at menstruation, ovulation, intercourse, bowel movements, urination

• Sub-fertility

• Fatigue, bloating, nausea, heavy bleeding

• Possibly a susceptibility to develop other diseases, including certain cancers

Treatments include:

• Painkillers

• Birth control pills

• Hormonal suppression

• Surgical removal and, for some, hysterectomy.

For most women, side effects are associated with all of these treatments, and none of them cure the disease.
