About this group

The Cambridge support group is a welcoming and supportive place to meet others who are affected by endometriosis. There will be a mixture of speakers and informal meetings providing the opportunity for group members to be listened to, understood, and find information. All women affected by endometriosis are welcome, whether you have recently been diagnosed or living with the condition for years.

Meet the Support Group Leader(s)

I had my diagnosis of deep infiltrating and ovarian endometriosis and laparoscopy in November 2022. I had heard of endometriosis a few times in my life but didn't realise I could have it until my symptoms flared up considerably in 2021 when I had shingles. Since my operation, I have really wanted to get involved in helping others with endometriosis. Endometriosis UK has been such an important and supportive resource throughout my journey and when I found that a space to help lead the Cambridge group was coming up I had to apply. I joined leading the group in July 2023 and hope to help others feel supported.

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in January 2014 having suffered from symptoms for over 10 years. I was provided with very little information at the time but found support through the Endometriosis UK online community. Having discovered that there was no support group in my local area, I decided to establish a group as I believe that the chance to meet people in person increases the opportunity to be able to openly share experiences and build a sense of community amongst those affected by the condition.
