The Lowdown on Endometriosis

Reviewed: July 1, 2021

March was Endometriosis Awareness Month so we invited Professor Andrew Horne – one of the world’s leading experts on this condition to come and talk to us.

Endometriosis is a painful, common condition where cells similar to those in the womb are found outside the womb. It affects a whopping 180 million women worldwide, and if you live in the UK takes on average 7.5 years to be diagnosed.

Andrew is Professor of Gynaecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Edinburgh, and has been studying pelvic pain and endometriosis for 10 years. He is currently working on better understanding of what causes endometriosis and new non-hormonal treatments for the condition.

In this free webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What is endometriosis?
  • What causes endometriosis?
  • What are the symptoms or signs you might have it?
  • What treatments are currently available – and what’s being worked on?
  • How can those who have it get help and support?
