Learn more about Endometriosis

One in ten women suffer from endometriosis, yet many of us know so little about this common, yet poorly understood disease. What are its causes? Is it inherited? And why does it take an average of seven to ten years before most women are diagnosed?

To find out the answers to these questions and more from a panel of experts and advocates, come to a free community event in Auditorium 1 at the State Library of Queensland, on Thursday 2 March 2017 from 6.00pm 7.00pm. Canapés and drinks will be served from 5.15pm - 6.00pm.

There will be presentations by Sylvia and Lesley Freedman, the founders of EndoActive, Gynaecologist and Laparoscopic Surgeon Dr Susan Evans, and Professor Grant Montgomery, Senior Research Fellow at the UQ Institute for Molecular Bioscience.

Register today to come along and join the conversation.

That's horrible! Best of luck to all sufferers. I really hope they find the talk helpful.

I was diagnosed many years ago. Prior to surgery my gyneo changed my pill to Yasmin. Ended up almost dead with bilateral pulmonary embolism which is blood clots in both lungs from the pill. Lucky to be alive. My point being if you are a sufferer or think you might be get as much info as you possibly can and do your research into this disease and use caution with the pill. For me it was unlucky but very real and a long battle back to good health. So if you can attend the seminar it might be very worth the effort.
