Endometriosis is a disease that affects 1 in 10 women. And, endometriosis can take up to ten years for a diagnoses to be received. The purpose of this site is to bring together all women and their families to help raise awareness of what we go through each and every day. It is not a picnic.
Personally, I have dealt with this illness for over a decade. It took three years of testing to receive a diagnosis. Yet, even when I tell doctors I have endometriosis, none take my pain seriously when I have a relapse. “It’s just period pain” or “It’s only bad cramps” are common phrases I’m told. Unfortunately, my experience is not uncommon.
