Endometriosis is a painful disease that affects 176 million women and girls worldwide, according to the World Endometriosis Research Foundation (WERF).
The disease is also one of the most common causes of female infertility. Endometriosis is present in 40% to 60% of women who unintentionally remain childless.
Often not taken seriously or even ignored, many women suffer alone. That does not have to be the case.
