Menstrual wellbeing to be taught in schools by 2020

Endometriosis UK has today welcomed government plans for every child in England to be taught about menstrual wellbeing.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds will today set out plans to make relationships education in all primary schools and relationships and sex education (RSE) in all secondary school compulsory.

Guidance for the new subject of health education confirms that all pupils – regardless of their gender – will be taught the facts about menstrual wellbeing.

Why we volunteer to run the London EndoMarch

The London EndoMarch is fast approaching and this year, it’s set to be bigger and better than ever before! We sat down with the team who make the entire day possible and asked them what we can expect from 2019’s march, what it’s like organising 500 people and what the day means for the cause.


Why is it important for people to come together for this march?
