One Woman Opens Up About What It’s Like to Have Endometriosis

Editor’s Note: This video only states that endometriosis affects women, but it can affect anyone with a uterus. We hope all people including the medical community will move adopt language that’s more inclusive for transgender, non-binary, intersex, and agender folks erased by binary language.

“I felt like I had to make up for the fact that I was broken.”

Do you have endometriosis or know anyone who does? This disorder affects nearly 180 million people worldwide, but dealing with it can feel very lonely because we don’t often talk about it.

Endometriosis is a chronic illness that affects the uterus and can cause painful periods, painful sex, infertility, and more.

Here’s one woman, Laura, opening up about what it’s like to live with endometriosis, her struggle to get diagnosis and treatment, dating with a chronic illness, and more. We need to have more talk and less silence about this issue, and we hope sharing this video helps.
