Endometriosis is greatly underfunded, under-researched and underserved. 200+ million women and people AFAB* suffer from endometriosis, a chronic full-body disease. That’s more than type 1 diabetes, MS, lupus, ALS, heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer and ovarian cancer combined.

Regardless of endometriosis being acknowledged as one of the top most painful diseases, many people with endometriosis are not believed due to the normalization and stigmas surrounding women and people AFAB's pain and health amongst society, practitioners and patients. People are committing suicide and accidentally overdosing because of this. This is a horrible outcome for the healthcare and wellbeing of women and people AFAB.

 

ebb&flo is committed to create the awareness and advocacy endometriosis needs and deserves. Join us in sharing your endometriosis experiences for our No One Believed Me campaign.

At 11, I became disabled from my endometriosis, my mom bought me a walker and I had to be homeschooled from bullying. It was the worst.

 

I was told my pain was part of being a woman.

I was misdiagnosed with acute appendicitis by 12.

 

At 13, during my appendix removal surgery they found my organs were glued and too obstructed to save. I had my entire colon, appendix, rectum and large intestine removed.

 

At 15, I had ovarian cysts the size of tennis balls removed and part of my left fallopian tube.At 21, I had a hysterectomy because I was promised I would never have endometriosis again. I had all of my symptoms return 5 months later. I was mortified and ignored. My doctor and 17 others told me it was impossible to still have endometriosis.

 

No one believed me.

Endometriosis is a chronic inflammatory disease with autoimmune disease like behaviours. Endometriosis is suspected to be when the lining similar to the uterus, the endometrium, mutates on other organs. These mutations often cause cysts (endometriomas), spider-web adhesions that bind organs like glue, and lesions that bleed mimicking the menstrual cycle. The blood from the lesions have nowhere to exit and pool in the pelvic cavity causing inflammation. Endometriosis is a full body disease that is most commonly recognized in the reproductive and gynaecological area. Endometriosis has also been found in the bowel, diaphragm, throat, lungs, eyes, external skin and
even the brain!

Being a black woman with endometriosis since the age of 11 has had me contemplate my existence for the past 20 years.

 

I am constantly ignored, denied and

neglected. Every specialist or doctor I've had told me that my pain was normal or that it's just in my head. Some even told me I was attention seeking.

At 25, I finally saw an endometriosis specialist for less than 10 minutes after being on a 2 year waitlist. He looked me up and down and told me I looked fine, my scans were normal and that it was bad enough out there for people like me to be bringing unwarranted chaos into my life. I couldn’t get a word in because he left the room. I was beyond shocked, confused, heartbroken and disgusted. The secretary came to check on me to guide me out because I guess I sat too long in the room crying in disbelief.

 

I’ve lost so many jobs, friends, partners, opportunities because I’m in excruciating pain all the time. Some days I can’t even move and have to crawl to get to the bathroom. I live trapped in my body.

 

After the passing of Aubrion Rogers, I'm terrified for my life.

1 in 9 women and people AFAB* suffer from endometriosis often followed by adenomyosis, a similar mutation where the endometrium mutates into the muscular wall of the uterus.

Although endometriosis symptoms were first documented in the Ebers Papyri (one of the oldest known medical works) during 1550BC. and is the second most common gynaecological issue, it is still a greatly misunderstood disease amongst practitioners, patients and society.

Endometriosis has an average 11+ year diagnostic wait time. Even longer for women of colour, transgender and non-binary people. 6 in 10 cases often remain undiagnosed. 

In the time that it takes to be diagnosed with endometriosis you could fly to the moon 456 times,
run 14,231 marathons or climb Mount Everest 45 times

We're setting the standard for how womxn with chronic conditions We're revolutionizing the

The hardest part of living with endometriosis is the constant advocacy and fight to get information and options with doctors and specialists. It's exhausting.
I'm exhausted. I have been fighting for help, to be heard, understood since I was 14 when I was rolled up to the ER on a stretcher from vomiting and passing out at school from pain. The doctor told me it was normal, every woman went through this and that my pain tolerance was just low. Recommending me to ignore the pain.

 

I was misdiagnosed for 27 years. I went from having to change through my tampon and pad every 30 mins to experiencing chronic pain and random cyst ruptures. I lost my job and custody of my child because I couldn't move or take care of myself. I became very depressed.
I was so desperate for pain relief, I signed up with a non-specialist for surgery; the biggest mistake of my life.  I had a botched endometriosis surgery that left me without organs I didn't agree with removing and with a colostomy bag for 1 year because of two failed anastomoses that leaked into my pelvis. 

No one believed me.

From the age of 13, I was misdiagnosed for UTI's. I was only able to be approved for a hysterectomy only after coming out as trans at the age of 39 and never because of the hell of pain I was in from endometriosis and adenomyosis.

I begged for a hysterectomy for all those years.I constantly struggled with dysphoria, deadnaming and misgendering. I was constantly told to just take birth control or get pregnant regardless of how many times I had to correct someone. I spent more time correcting my doctors than getting help for endometriosis or adenomyosis.

When I finally got my hysterectomy, my uterus weighed 4 pounds and my bladder was covered in adhesions attached to my uterus. Turns out it wasn't a UTI.


No one believed me.

Racial bias, sexism and ignorance play a huge
role in disease research and education, delay of diagnosis, solutions and preventative care for endometriosis patients.

The first endometriosis analysis for transgender people was only published in March 2021 and for
Hispanic women in May 2020.


Hispanic and Black women are 50% less likely to
be diagnosed with endometriosis.
There are few 
studies and higher complication rates for endometriosis and surgical care amongst Hispanic, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or
Pacific Islander, and American Indian or
Alaska Native patients
