Living with - Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a long-term condition. It can be a difficult condition to deal with, both physically and emotionally.

It is important that you talk to your GP and get help for your symptoms.

As with any long-term condition, eating well, physical activity and looking after your mental health can help with symptoms.

Getting help

If you have been diagnosed with suspected endometriosis you may need extra support from family and friends. You may need to speak to your school, college, or workplace.

Talk to your GP and gynaecologist to get the best course of treatment for you.

You can also contact a support group for information and advice.
