Share your story

Your stories enable us to highlight the experiences of those impacted by endometriosis.

We can use your stories to inform and support all areas of our work, including awareness raising, fundraising and campaigning.

Your stories are our most powerful tool on our mission towards endometriosis being recognised and understood, and where the disease does not limit people’s lives.

We are so grateful to everyone who chooses to share their story.

Thank you.
