The burden of endometriosis affects a woman's livelihood. Studies show that women with pelvic pain from endometriosis may lose a quarter of their work week. If you are unable to go to work because of pelvic pain during your period and other times of your cycle, it may be due to endometriosis. The pain may be so severe that it is difficult to get out of bed, let alone go to work and be productive. In 2010, US endometriosis patients were hospitalized for 105,123 days for their disease.

1 out of 3 patients have a hard time expressing how much pain they are in.

If you experience: severe cramps at the time of your period, pelvic pain at other times of the cycle, or pain with intercourse, you could have endometriosis.

These symptoms can disrupt work and home lives and contribute to emotional suffering.

Please talk to one of your doctors about your pain and we can help pinpoint the cause.
