World Endometriosis Society launches first ever video for endo week March 11

The World Endometriosis Society (WES) today launched a  film to help an estimated 176 million women across the globe to recognise symptoms of endometriosis before their long-term health and quality of life are affected.

Vice-president of the European Parliament, Diana Wallis, urged women to take action:

“Don’t be like me. Don’t take no for an answer. If you feel something is wrong you could have endometriosis. There are things that can be done to help you. Go and get advice, but also make others aware, because I don’t want you to end up like me”.

Diana Wallis had a full hysterectomy, as a newly wed; an operation that could have been avoided with earlier diagnosis and treatment of her endometriosis.  She was never able to have children. Today, she urges young women not to compromise their fertility, like she did, and get help – and treatment –  early.

  2. Hi Erin,

    We are linking up all women with endometriosis across Canada. We would love for you to join us. Our website is You can contact us at

  3. Have you looked into excision surgery by an endometriosis surgeon. There are only a handful of doctors that do this type of surgery. It is a much different type of lap in that it removes the endometriosis cells at its root instead of burning it off with a laser like a weed wacker.It is very important to get all the cells like in cancer or it will just continue to grow. A trained endometriosis surgeon can remove endometriosis off any organ and does not remove any organs. I have been pain free for almost 4 years and it is amazing. I had stage 4 and was in excruciating pain. It has been the most successful document treatment for endo and unfortunately not many doctors do it because of the level of training need to do this type of surgery. An "TRUE" endometriosis surgeon will never prescribe lupron or recommend removing any reproductive organs as a treatment.
