Endometriosis is a debilitating disease that effects one in 10 women. 

Endometriosis is present when tissue that is similar to the endometrium lining of the uterus occurs

outside this layer in other areas of the body. This layer of tissue is what is shed each month with menstruation or where a pregnancy settles and grows.  The most notable symptoms of endometriosis are pain and infertility, and while there are treatments available, there is no known cure (Endometriosis Australia, 2018). 

For more information, head on over to Endometriosis Australia, who are dedicated to advocating for Australians living with this insidious disease. They have some incredible resources and educational tools available online.

If you have an experience with Endometriosis that you would like to share, please let me know.
