Endo What? is a groundbreaking new documentary fresh out of the US that explores Endometriosis from the perspective of experts in the field and women and girls living with the disease. The film presents solid, accurate information and is a call to action to end the suffering of millions of women and girls across the globe.
353,076 women are affected by endometriosis in Washington State alone, and an estimated 176 million worldwide. These are our mothers, daughters, managers, teachers, business owners, bus drivers, and Senators. Do you, or someone you know have Endometriosis?
We offer excellent support and education regarding endometriosis. Please note: Per board policy, we do not recommend or refer to specific physicians. Please see our resources tab for a list of nationally recognized endometriosis specialists. Please contact us directly in order to join our live support group and our online, private Facebook group.
