Insight Endometriosis

Endometriosis can affect people of all backgrounds and ages, including teenagers.

A complex condition involving hormonal and immune systems, cells that resemble those in the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grow elsewhere in the body, which responds to reproductive hormones and form lesions or ovarian cysts which in turn can cause inflammation and adhesions (scar tissue).

Changing Futures

Insight Endometriosis supports people to make their own decisions about the treatment and management of their endometriosis

We want endometriosis to be widely recognised and understood.

Through awareness, information, and support we are normalising conversations about endometriosis to change diagnostic journeys and provide evidence-based information to empower decision-making.

Make a Difference

"The most helpful thing for managing my endometriosis has been meeting people through Insight Endometriosis coffee groups and seminars. They’ve put my mind at ease. I can go and be amongst people that have gone through, and are still going through, what I was going through.”
