Dear Senators and Representatives in the US Congress,
Do you know what it feels like to constantly miss out on life because you’re too sick to get out of bed? Do you know what it feels like to struggle with infertility?
These are some of the questions 176 million people with endometriosis ask themselves every day. But it doesn’t have to be this way. As policymakers, the decisions you make can help spark an endometriosis revolution.
Despite the profound impact that endometriosis has on the 1 in 10 women, girls, and trans men who suffer from it, endometriosis is a disease that fails to get the attention it deserves. On average, we will see 8 doctors over 10 years before receiving a diagnosis. During those years, our pain is often dismissed and seen as normal or we are misdiagnosed and treated for other conditions. These delays in diagnosis and treatment have severe consequences.
What would the world look like if 176 million girls and women were taken seriously from day one? What dreams and passions could be unleashed if that many people found answers and swift treatment?
It's time for girls and women to take back their lives. Working as one, we can revolutionize care and treatment of endometriosis, a disease that impacts 1 in 10 girls and women.
