Endometriosis and adenomyosis are reproductive conditions which can affect women of any age. Despite them affecting an estimated 1 in 10 women, the conditions frequently take many years to be identified and treated.
This leads to difficulties obtaining treatment and a variety of other issues, such as the financial costs of treatment; having to put aside university studies or work due to a lack of support from those in charge; being unable to participate in social activities as well as the mental toll all of this. These are explored in the video, where three young women detail their experiences living with endometriosis.
