March is Endometriosis Awareness Month

Organised by Endometriosis UK, this month is dedicated to raising awareness of one of the most common reproductive health concerns for women. Throughout March there are multiple initiatives happening as part of the endometriosis action month campaign to support those experiencing endometriosis and improve healthcare practices for future generations to come.

Our consultant gynaecologist and specialist in psychosexual medicine Dr Leila Frodsham explained “Endometriosis is a common condition affecting up to 1 in 5 women however, it can take 7 years or more to diagnose endometriosis.” Millions of women worldwide are impacted by the symptoms of endometriosis, experiencing debilitating pelvic pain, period problems and infertility. Endometriosis can affect women of all ages throughout their lives from puberty to menopause.

Our expert gynaecologists specialise in the accurate diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis. Using the latest technology to assess your condition, our consultants will provide a bespoke treatment plan to address your symptoms and support you. Although there isn’t a definitive cure for endometriosis, our team are on hand to explore management options with the aim towards reducing symptoms and improving your quality of life.

Join consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist Mr Kumar Kunde share his expertise on the management of chronic pelvic pain and endometriosis in primary care on March 31, 6pm-7pm.

If you are a healthcare practitioner, please learn more about endometriosis during March. Endometriosis experts, please share resources with colleagues. For those in primary care, a good starting point is the RCGPs Menstrual Wellbeing Toolkit and free 30-minute e-learning module.
