πŸŽ— March is Endometriosis Awareness Month πŸŽ—

What does Endometriosis Awareness Month mean to you?

Do you celebrate it? Talk about it to your family and friends? Spend extra time researching things? Wear endo awareness insignia? Do you donate your time or money to a worthy cause?

Or maybe you haven't participated in an awareness month yet and have been thinking about ways to get involved.

Whatever it is, we want to know what Endometriosis Awareness Month means to you.

  1. Endo Awareness Month for me means extra sharing of Endo info. I normally post and share info to help raise awareness but I usually go extra with this month. I've partaken in different online Endo things too, like every day you answer a question/respond to a pre-planned thing. Ex: Day 1: Share what Endo pain means to you. Day 2: Share what type of Endo you have. Day 3: Advice you would give to a new Endo warrior. Etc.

    A couple of years ago I bought an Endo necklace from A.W.A.R.E (A Way to Act And Remember Everyday) to help raise awareness for Endo. I definitely want to get more Endo merch. 2yrs ago I bought yellow nail polish and kept my nails yellow for all of March.

    While I haven't been able to partake in any marches or other public events, I hope one day in the future I will be able to.

    1. I hear you, I often feel like I am on repeat. I have a Endo infographic pic saved on my phone because of how often I have to use.

    2. that’s very smart. I try to have several of those saved for each of my chronic conditions that I can send out when the time come. Amber ( team moderator)

  2. This may be only the second year I even knew March was Endo Awareness month! Incredible, since I've had the disease for decades.

    Like Ray, I will post more often about endo topics on Instagram or Facebook, especially raising awareness about endo and the LGBTQIA2S+ community. I've met some really wonderful people that way and have been finding out that more and more people in my circle have or suspect they have endo.

    I'm not a huge fan of yellow, so I don't have any merch. Plus, it's often quite gendered. If I had the spoons, I'd design some. ~Katrina, Advocate

    1. Someone on Twitter just started to come after me a little bit because I mentioned that cis men and trans men get endo. "It's not really a man thing," they said. Right, I get that it's rare, but shouldn't we be looking out for everyone who gets endo?!

      I had no idea cows get it! Wow. ~Katrina, Advocate

    2. I have had to provide links to studies about CIS men having Endo. You are absolutely right, the goal should be to look out for EVERYONE who gets Endo.
