I too have endometriosis and fibroids. It was only when I read the book The Period Repair Manual that I realised my periods were not normal. If only I’d known that 30 years ago. What a difference my life would have been. Young women deserve to know how to manage their bodies in a positive way!

Iv struggles with this since the age if 21 however alot if girls and women have struggled for longer without knowing what is is due ti doctors blaming the pain on something else or saying they dont know this desease has made me struggle with myself to the point where i dint like myself because even though theres painkillers a treatment you can only take and they can only last do long before you feel like your back to sqaure one

I have endured so much from 14 years of drs dismising my Endo pain as nothing, making it up to get attention, hypochondriac, your pain does not exist...this type of of behavior needs to end. Pharmacuitical narrative is NOT proper evidenced information on disease, it is for profit only. Complex gynaecologists / Endo experts need to be formally recognised by their peers for the extra training and skill level required to clean up the messes that are being left behind by regular gyn's. Endo specialists and women with the disease need to be part of the discussions into how to move forward. This misoginistic and outdated medical approch to Endometriosis has got to go.

Menstruation is a monthly reality for half of the population and it's preposterous that this isn't better taught in schools.

Healthcare that directly affects 50% of the population (and more when you consider men who want to be parents) should have more prominence in education. Girls & women need a greater understanding of their own bodies to avoid unnecessary suffering, fertility issues & poor wellbeing.
