Endometriosis or Endo is a disorder causing severe pelvic pain and (associated with) in-fertility that affects about 5.5 million women in North America and 5-10% of women globally. It is caused when the lining of womb attaches itself to ovaries and other structures outside the womb. There is no cure for endometriosis but there a few promising treatments options available.
March is the National Endometriosis Awareness Month and lets do our part to help raise public awareness and support the efforts to find a cure for this disease
