Endometriosis Action Month 2024

Could it be Endometriosis?

Endometriosis impacts 1 in 10 women and those assigned female at birth in the UK, yet so many are still unaware of the condition and its impact.⁠

For Endometriosis Action Month 2024, we’re focusing on raising vital awareness of the common symptoms of endometriosis. Improving general public awareness and understanding of the condition ensures that those experiencing symptoms, their friends and family and their healthcare team know to ask ‘could it be endometriosis?’, leading to more prompt diagnosis and access to care.⁠

Join us and help us demand change for the 1 in 10 women and those assigned female at birth with endometriosis in the UK.
