“It is not easy to talk about a condition once dismissed as ‘the career women’s disease’. But women will continue to suffer until we realise the cost of ignoring it”

HILARY MANTEL

ENDOMETRIOSIS AROUND THE GLOBE

WHAT OTHER EXPERTS AROUND THE WORLD ARE SAYING

Suffering should not define you as a woman! And just because you’re a man it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t affect you! HELP HER to remove the taboos and the loneliness surrounding this disease; be understanding, show empathy, and don’t accuse her of being sensitive, delicate, or overly dramatic – this is a big opportunity for you guys to show that you care and to be a real man!

Susan Sarandon

Actress

It’s not easy to diagnose because depending where the endometrial deposits are, the symptoms can be quite different. It’s an unrecognized problem among teenage girls, and it’s something that every young woman who has painful menstruation should be aware of. It’s a condition that is curable if it’s caught early. If it’s allowed to run on, it can cause infertility, and can really mess up your life.

Hilary Mantel

Author

You only have to tell one other person…just tell them what you heard, or ask them have you ever heard of [Endometriosis]? If the answer is no, share what you learn. You just have to tell somebody else. You have to take whatever stigma people think that is there. You have to take it. It’s not male or female. It has to do with, here’s a disease you don’t know about and you need to know about it.
