SEVERE PAIN WITH YOUR PERIODS? YOU MIGHT HAVE ENDOMETRIOSIS

How Common Is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is fairly common, affecting an estimated 10%-15% of women and girls, usually during their reproductive years. Based on these rough estimates, the latest epidemiological studies suggest that more than 8.5-10 million women in the US and an estimated 200,000,000 worldwide (that’s 200 million) are believed to be affected. However, endometriosis commonly goes undiagnosed. Therefore many experts believe that the incidence is actually higher.

Contrary to popular beliefs, pre-teen and teenage girls can and do get endometriosis.

And, although it’s considered a disorder affecting women and girls during their reproductive years, endometriosis has been found in fetuses, infants, young girls who have not menstruated yet, in post-menopausal women, in women who have had a total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and in cis and transgender men.
