Halsey is among the most recent celebrities to talk about her diagnosis of endometriosis. By taking this courageous step, she has made the endometriosis room bigger, contributing to awareness and discussion of endometriosis around the world and helping others with endometriosis feel less alone.
MyEndometriosisTeam members often share what Halsey’s openness about her condition means to them. “Thank you Halsey for speaking out,” one MyEndometriosisTeam member said. “We need to be heard!” Another wrote, “Halsey, the singer, has endometriosis and she was on a talk show and gave a speech at the Endometriosis Foundation’s Blossom Ball,” another member wrote. “There are a lot of us.”
Since MyEndometriosisTeam launched in 2016, we have grown to become a community of over 115,000 members — that's a big room! Just as Halsey’s announcement amplifies the voice of those with endometriosis, each new member on MyEndometriosisTeam makes our community stronger.
