During this week and beyond, we are highlighting support services and information available to the transgender community.
Endometriosis UK exist to support all those with endometriosis.
In England & Wales, 262,000 people identify as transgender (Census, 2021) and in Scotland, there is an estimated 24,000 people (Scottish Public Health Network, 2018). Endometriosis affects one in 10 women and those assigned female at birth, meaning there are many transgender and non-binary people with the condition.
