Recently there has been a lot of “noise” around endometriosis. As a disease that is thought to affect 1 in 10 people assigned female at birth, this should be fairly common. It’s a painful, debilitating disease, which can impact the lives of those affected from puberty through their lifespan so you might expect a lot of fundraising, talking and attention on research activities.
Except that’s not the case. Despite the high prevalence and very real impact of endometriosis on people’s daily lives, it does not receive proportionate attention.
