March is Endometriosis Action Month.
Join us and help us demand change for the 1.5 million women and those assigned female at birth with endometriosis in the UK.
Every March, people all over the world show their support for everyone affected by endometriosis. This Endometriosis Action Month and beyond, we’re here to support you and demand change.
This year, we’re busting the myths and highlighting the real impact of living with endometriosis. All too often, those with endometriosis have their symptoms dismissed. Ever heard Endometriosis is “just a bad period” or that your pelvic pain is “normal”? There are lots of myths around endometriosis, including that it’s just something you have to deal with. This has to change if those with endometriosis are to get the care they deserve.
Whatever your connection to endometriosis, you can help us drive change this March.

Participate in our Diagnosis Survey
Take part in our survey to help us find out how long it takes to get a diagnosis of endometriosis in the UK, and your experiences during the diagnosis process. We want to hear from you if you've had a diagnosis, if you're going through the diagnosis process or if you have suspected endometriosis, so we can see what your experiences are.
This survey will provide accurate, up to date information about how long the diagnosis process currently takes across the UK, how that has changed over time, and any differences across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We’ll use the information in our lobbying and campaigning work to drive down diagnosis time and improve access to care.
