Gloucestershire Support Group
About this group
We want to be a place of safety for those that are suffering from endometriosis. We aim to hold regular meetings where people can come together to discuss what they are going through, as well as educate themselves. As we are a new group, we are open to the ideas of the new group members on what they would like to get from the group as well.

I first started experiencing symptoms around the age of 13, also when I started my periods. I was diagnosed with endometriosis in July 2020 via laparoscopy ablation surgery after years of pain. I then went on to have a second operation in November 2021, however this time I had excision surgery via laparoscopy. I want to use my experiences to help other people and to advocate for change in diagnosis time.
