Endometriosis is a gynaecological condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb, grows in other areas of the body, most commonly in the pelvic region. This tissue responds to hormones in the same way as the lining of the womb but with no outlet it can cause inflammation, scarring and adhesions, leading to severe pain and many other symptoms. For more details on what endometriosis is then visit our Information section.
With over 1.5 million women in the UK suffering from this painful condition we believe it is essential that those affected by it can find support and information.
Endometriosis UK is the leading national charity dedicated to providing these services. Our information section is full of advice about the condition, how it may affect you and what you can do to help treat it.
We provide a large range of support from our local groups across the country to the helpline. These services are a brilliant resource as they are run by our amazing volunteers, all of whom have been affected by the condition. We work hard to increase understanding of endometriosis through campaigning, awareness-raising initiatives and research.
We aim to support everyone affected by endometriosis but cannot do this without your help. Join the fight against endometriosis by making a donation, becoming a volunteer or fundraising for Endometriosis UK.
