World Endometriosis Day aims at bringing awareness for a condition that affects over 10% of women globally.


World Endometriosis Awareness Day, born out of the collective efforts of patient advocacy groups, medical professionals, and individuals impacted by this chronic and often excruciating condition, seeks to shed light on its widespread prevalence, symptoms, and profound impacts on women's health. Despite affecting millions of women worldwide, endometriosis is frequently underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed, resulting in delays in treatment and unnecessary suffering.


Recognizing the urgent need for increased awareness, research, and support, various advocacy groups, including the Endometriosis Association, initiated Endometriosis Awareness Month in 1993. This month-long campaign aims to educate the public about a condition that affects approximately 1 in 10 women during their reproductive years. Moreover, it advocates against the stigma surrounding endometriosis, strives to enhance understanding among healthcare providers, and empowers individuals to pursue timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

As discussed in other articles, endometriosis presents numerous challenges, including diagnostic delays, limited treatment options, and profound impacts on fertility and quality of life. This chronic disease manifests as the growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, leading to severe pelvic pain and fertility issues.


Diagnosing endometriosis is particularly challenging due to symptoms often overlapping with menstrual discomfort. Consequently, women experiencing persistent and intense pelvic pain are encouraged to seek professional evaluation to determine its cause and pursue necessary treatment.

World Endometriosis Day is an opportunity to raise awareness around endometriosis and some key facts around this condition.

By raising awareness, fostering research, and providing support, we can collectively work towards improving the lives of those affected by endometriosis, reducing diagnostic delays, expanding treatment options, and ultimately alleviating the burdens associated with this condition. Let's stand together in solidarity and advocacy for a world where individuals with endometriosis receive timely diagnosis, effective treatment, and compassionate care.


Unfortunately, data on endometriosis remains limited, and there appears to be a significant gap in research on this condition across Southeast Asia. For this reason, a lot of the impact, symptoms and management of this condition may still be largely undiscovered.
