Thank you for helping to sup…
Thank you for helping to support the Endometriosis Action Alliance become a non profit organization. By helping us start this grassroots organization, you are a part of helping 10% of women worldwide achieve better gender equality for their medical care, access basic human rights to reproduction and greatly reduce the impacts of a top chronic health threat to women here in the U.S.

Cassie and I are determined to make a big impact and could not do it alone. Your support means the world to us! Please let others know you are supporting a great cause. Let others know endometriosis exists, that women are suffering and struggling unnecessarily (how can it take 7-10 years just to get a diagnosis in 2016 when 10% of women suffer from this?!).

Let others know if menstrual cycle pain interferes with the life you strive for, it is NOT normal and endometriosis could be to blame. This alone could help someone get help before they suffer unnecessarily for 10 or more years. To help empower YOU to be an advocate for women’s health we’d like to arm you with some myths to dispel. The documentary Endo What? lists the following as the top 10 endometriosis myths perpetuated by the medical community and society:

10. Endometriosis is only in your pelvis
9. You can’t have endometriosis if you’ve had a hysterectomy
8. You don’t need to be diagnosed. You can just take drugs to manage symptoms.
7. Tampons cause endometriosis.
6. It’s caused by an infection like STDs and can be treated with antibiotics.
5. Only women who delay childbearing can get it.
4. Endometriosis can be caused by psychological trauma early in life.
3. If you have minimal disease you will only have minimal symptoms.
2. It’s just bad period pain.
1. Pregnancy is a cure.

Thank you again for your generosity and support for the 1 in 10 with endometriosis, including us!

With Love,

Jaimee Rudman and Cassie Forrington
