Dundee Support Group
About this group
My hope in setting up the Dundee support group is that it provides a safe and supportive environment for those with suspected or diagnosed Endo to share their experiences with the condition. The group has been up and running since March 2019 and I'm open to suggestions of what topics people might want to discuss. I enjoy seeing new and familiar faces at meetings and hope that others find it to be of benefit to them through their journey.
General Session InformationFollowing the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings are now held either in person or online. Meetings held in person tend to be at a Dundee city centre venue unless otherwise stated. From time to time, we will hold "Bring your own support network" meetings, allowing your loved ones to join in.

Hi, I'm Vicky and I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2017. In the grand scheme of things, I am aware that I had a fairly short diagnosis time (7 months) from when symptoms were impacting me on a daily basis. Although looking back, there were always signs since I started my periods aged 11 - heavy periods, severe cramps requiring time off school and work, fatigue, suspected appendicitis - but I had never heard of the condition until a few months before my confirmed diagnosis aged 29.
I set up Endometriosis UK Dundee Support Group in January 2019 after attending meetings of my closest support group in Fife. I love that you don't have to justify yourself at meetings, you can simply just be.
I continue to hope that the group is a useful means of support to people with suspected or diagnosed endometriosis along with their support networks and raise awareness of Endometriosis in my local area.
