Endometriosis: What People Don't Know (Infographic)

Posted on October 04, 2016

Below the surface, living with endometriosis can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to endometriosis than meets the eye. We know that endometriosis comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't know the many symptoms we experience.

On MyEndometriosisTeam.com, the social network and online support group for women living with endometriosis, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. MyEndometriosisTeam has grown to reach 51,000 members and members have shared over 1 million conversations about life with endometriosis! Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyEndometriosisTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent endometriosis symptoms because the life-impacting implications of an endometriosis diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread endo awareness!
