Endometriosis Awareness Month (in some countries it is just for one week (3 -9 March 2014) - is a worldwide initiative to raise awareness of this common, chronic and enigmatic gynecological disease, which affects approximately 176 million women of reproductive age.

Endometriosis can present with severe symptoms such as chronic pelvic pain, pain with menstruation, pain during intercourse (dyspareunia) and dysmenorrhea. However, in the majority of cases endometriosis is asymptomatic in early stages.

Endometriosis causes infertility in up to 30% of women who suffer from this disease and it carries a huge personal and social cost.

Endometriosis Week/Month aims to create a greater awareness and understanding of endometriosis and to show inspiring examples of living with this disease. Women with endometriosis from all over the world come together to support each other.

Don’t hesitate to visit your gynecologist in case even minor pelvic pain. Women must be more attentive to their health and not to put their career on the forefront.
