Quiz: Which Endometriosis Symptoms Do You Have?

Endometriosis is a widespread condition that affects about 1 in 10 women across the globe, according to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.

It occurs when tissue like the endometrium — the tissue that lines the uterus — grows outside of the uterus on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or other organs in the pelvic area.

It takes an average of 10 years to accurately diagnose endometriosis. It’s difficult to diagnose endometriosis because symptoms vary from person to person, and doctors have to perform a surgical procedure called a laparoscopy to make an official diagnosis.

Although there are other reasons for a delayed diagnosis, understanding endometriosis symptoms like pelvic pain, bleeding, infertility, and fatigue will help you to better communicate your symptoms to a primary care doctor or gynecologist and access treatment options more quickly.

This endometriosis quiz will help you understand if your symptoms could be a sign of endometriosis, how they are affecting your life, and how to talk to a doctor about them. It is possible to have symptoms associated with endometriosis without actually having endometriosis. Some symptoms of endometriosis may also occur in other health conditions. This quiz is not meant to diagnose endometriosis or other health conditions.

The quiz will tally the number of endometriosis symptoms you report. Each symptom is worth one point.
