According to Endometriosis Australia, some 730,000 Australian women experience endometriosis once their reproductive years begin. Diagnosis and treatments are often delayed by as much as 12 years since most women aren’t aware of the symptoms.

Endometriosis may be the reason for a woman’s painful menstrual cycle, excessive bleeding, pain during intercourse, pelvic inflammatory disease, and ovarian cysts. The symptoms vary per women and might sometimes be confused as part of the menstrual cycle. When left untreated or unmanaged, endometriosis could lead to complications like infertility issues or cancer.
