We understand that endometriosis is a broad subject especially around cultural considerations and how you experience endometriosis if you’re transitioning/ed. Come along to this session for an overview and there will be time at the end to share what you’d like to hear more specific information on. Alternatively, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is not open to cisgendered men (those who were assigned male at birth and live as a male)
You don’t have to come prepared – just join the conversation!
What is it for?
1 in 10 (1.5 million) people suffer from endometriosis in the UK – a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. In Nottingham , this amounts to about 30,000 people.
Lots of people have told us that they have struggled to get information about endometriosis and access support for their condition in Nottingham. This workshop is designed to:
1. Educate people and the public on endometriosis as a condition and how to access support within the local health care system.
2. Provide people with the opportunity to get together and talk about their experiences of endometriosis in a welcoming and understanding space.
3. Help Nottingham Women’s Centre build evidence for our campaigning work to ensure the setting up of a specialist endometriosis clinic in Nottingham. We want to gain a deeper understanding of women’s experiences of endometriosis within the city of Nottingham.
