Approximately 1 in 10 women have endometriosis. Endometriosis is when the endometrium – the blood and tissue that is normally shed monthly from the uterus – starts to grow outside the uterus.
Affecting women between the ages of 25 to 35 years
Endometriosis mostly affects women between the ages of 25 to 35 years but can occur as early as the first period. While there is no cure, a dedicated gynecologist can work with you to customize treatment and management so you can thrive while living with endometriosis.
