Endometriosis is a condition that affects 1 in 10 women and 176 million women worldwide. Recently a 27-year-old woman as spoken out about her struggles with endo and revealed that the treatment has sent her into early menopause. A lot of women are silently struggling with this illness and some may not realise they have it. Unfortunately, Endometriosis has not cure or a root cause other than the possibility of it being hereditary.
