Endometriosis is a prevalent disease in the field of women's health, affecting 1 in every 10 women in the United States. These women go through their day to day activities experiencing such symptoms as painful cramps, pain during intercourse and a drastic decrease in their chances of bearing children. Despite its vast impact upon women, endometriosis still does not receive the research, funding and news coverage that many other prevalent disorders do in comparison.
As the #metoo
movement ushers in an era of female empowerment, a new crop of women are finding the strength to step forward and stand in their truth by revealing their endo diagnosis and letting their fellow endo sisters (an estimated 178 million and counting) know that they are definitely not alone.
