According to Endometriosis.org:
- Endometriosis affects an estimated 1 in 10 women during their reproductive years (between the ages of 15 to 49)
- That amounts to approximately 176 million women in the world.
- Endometriosis can start as early as a girl’s first period.
- Menopause may not end the symptoms of endometriosis, especially if the woman has scar tissue or adhesions from the disease and/or surgery.
