Endometriosis causes tissue similar to the lining of the uterus growing outside of the uterus. This leads to adhesions and inflammation. The main symptoms: pain, pain, pain and often an unfulfilled desire to have children. Endometriosis is chronic. The causes are still unknown. The most common forms of therapy are operations and hormones, which intervene strongly in the body and have numerous side effects. Affected people are not taken seriously with their pain and other symptoms. There is still insufficient research into the causes and further therapies.
We inform and clarify. We do campaigns to create awareness. We advise people that are affected by the disease, but also their relatives. We strengthen self-help and bring affected people together in groups. We fight for better treatments.
Together we want to draw attention. We want to clear up with taboos. We want people to talk about Endometriosis. Quite a lot of people already broke the taboo this year, became endofighters and told their stories. You can read them on the Instagram account of the Endometriosis Association Germany here
