Endometriosis affects 1 in 8 women during their reproductive years. It can take an average of ten years before a confirmed diagnosis is made. Many people still have not heard of endometriosis and therefore many women suffer alone in silence. Endometriosis is one of the highest causes of sick days and infertility in women.
Endometriosis is a condition in which the cells that make up the lining of the uterus (endometrium) are found in places outside the uterus.
The cause of endometriosis is not known, therefore there is no cure but treatment is available.
Period pain that stops regular activity is not normal. QENDO offers support for women and their families affected by endometriosis.
