Endometriosis Awareness Month

Endometriosis Awareness Month - March 2024

“Endometriosis is notoriously difficult to diagnose because the symptoms are perverse. A woman with mild endometriosis can be in an agony for days every month (or every day for every month); women with the severe kind can have hardly any pain at all, like me.” ~ Rose George
