Endometriosis Awareness: Empowering Patients

  • This event has passed.

March 16, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

Endometriosis is a chronic gynecological disease that may cause pelvic pain, pain between periods, back pain, pain with sex, infertility, and other symptoms, severely impacting a woman’s quality of life. An estimated 200 million individuals worldwide are living with endometriosis. However, societal stigma around menstruation can prevent women from discussing life-disrupting, period-related symptoms, leading to delays in diagnosis and treatment for endometriosis.

This SWHR webinar provides valuable insight for both patients and health care providers on opportunities to empower people living with endometriosis.

Hear endometriosis experts and a patient advocate speak about:

    • the burden of endometriosis and menstrual stigma
    • diagnosis and treatment options
    • the patient journey and tips for living well with endometriosis

Learn more about this disease and the work of SWHR’s Endometriosis and Fibroids Network.
