What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a common disease in which the tissue that is similar to the lining of the womb grows outside it in other parts of the body.
10% of women suffer from endometriosis at some point in their life with the disease often starting in teenagers. Symptoms are variable and this may contribute to the 7 to 10-year delay in diagnosis. Common symptoms include pelvic pain that puts life on hold around or during a woman’s period. It can damage fertility.
Whilst endometriosis most often affects the reproductive organs it is frequently found in the bowel and bladder and has been found in muscle, joints, the lungs and the brain.
What is the Worldwide EndoMarch?
The Worldwide EndoMarch is a campaign to raise money & awareness of Endometriosis through events being held across the world on March 27, 2021.
Team Australia is currently planning something special for next year. Our aim is to raise funds for raising endometriosis awareness, increasing endometriosis education and to fund endometriosis research.
