Patient Stories

The women who live with endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain have typically struggled for years to find a solution to end their pain. While every woman’s journey is unique, remaining silent while friends, family, and physicians reassuring them that their pain is normal is a common theme in all their stories.

The key to finding an answer starts with asking the right questions and seeking out a physician who takes the signs and symptoms of endometriosis seriously. These medical professionals should be endometriosis specialists with an individualized treatment plan for these women, including a surgical plan of action and follow-up care.

By sharing their stories, these women want to spread awareness about endometriosis in the hopes that other women won’t have to go through the same experiences they did.
