Know Endometriosis Symptoms

Endometriosis is a disease in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows in other places in the body. The disorder typically affects women in their 30s and 40s, but it can affect any woman who menstruates. Many women with endometriosis go undiagnosed[1] because they don’t realize that their symptoms—which can include pain, infertility, and heavy periods— are not a normal part of menstruation or signs of a health condition.

Join the Know Endometriosis Symptoms Thunderclap to help raise awareness among women about endometriosis symptoms and when to talk to a health care provider.

Here’s how to join:

  1. SELECT one of the red buttons at the top of this page to sign up to share an endometriosis symptoms awareness message via Twitter, Facebook, and/or Tumblr. Thunderclap will automatically post a message on your behalf on March 24, 2018.
  2. ENCOURAGE others to do the same between now and March 24 by sharing the link to this page via social media, email, or your website.

Our goal is to get 100 accounts to support the Know Endometriosis Symptoms Thunderclap. Together, we can educate thousands of women about endometriosis symptoms.

Simple actions can make a big difference. Thank you for your support.

This Thunderclap is co-sponsored with the Endometriosis Association. Learn more
