It's time to get #EndoWise
Endometriosis, also known as 'endo', is a condition that is more common than diabetes or breast cancer – affecting one in 10 women of reproductive age worldwide – yet many people don't know what it is. It also takes, on average, 7-10 years for a woman to get a diagnosis of endo, from when she first visits a doctor about her symptoms.
Endometriosis is diverse condition and every woman with the condition has her own story to tell. In September 2018, Jean Hailes for Women’s Health launched the campaign #EndoWise. The aim of the campaign is to build awareness of this condition and offers a chance for the women of Australia who have endo, to tell their stories.
