Not only is March Endometriosis Awareness Month, but this week is National Endometriosis Awareness week as well! We thought the best way to start the week was to clearly define what this chronic disease is and share an informative video.
〽️Endometriosis is a common health problem among women primarily affecting them during child-bearing years before menopause. It gets its name from the word endometrium, the tissue that lines the uterus.
〽️Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the endometrium grows outside the uterus on other organs or bodily structures.

Note: We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female,” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people.
