My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in early 2015 following 10 years of period problems and severe stomach pains. I had my first laparoscopy in May 2015, my second in June 2016, third in 2018 and have recently undergone my 4th operation just before Xmas 2020. I have found endometriosis debilitating at times, isolating and difficult to talk about. As the closest support group was 100 miles away, I wanted to create a safe space for people in Devon to be able to support each other.

About the support group:

Our group is usually held on the last Wednesday of the month between 6.30pm and 8pm. Due to COVID-19, our groups are currently held online until further notice. 

Pre Covid (and hopefully post) we held the meetings at The Mansion, 36A Fore St, Totnes TQ9 5RP. We use a room on the ground floor which is easily accessible. Please do let me know if you have any special requirements. 

Toilets are just opposite the room.

We provide snacks, tea and coffee and on special occasions we may splash out on cake! We are always happy to cater for different dietary requirements. 

There is free parking along the high street after 6pm. Aside from this, surrounding roads are also free after 6pm but please check the signs!

General Session Information:

The group is for anyone who is experiencing or has had endometriosis. We also welcome anyone who is supporting someone with endometriosis.

The purpose of the group is to find others, get support and raise awareness of endometriosis. We want to empower people to be able to manage and be back in control of their lives. We have informal meetings on a monthly basis. We sometimes invite speakers and try to focus on a different subject every month. We also love to do the occasional social meet and fundraising events!

It is important to understand that you are not alone and support can make such a positive difference to people’s lives. We look forward to meeting you!
