Endometriosis (pronounced en – doh – mee – tree – oh – sis) can affect people of all backgrounds and ages, including teenagers.

It is a common chronic (long-term) inflammatory condition affecting 1 in 9 people born with a uterus. 

Endometriosis is a complex condition involving hormonal and immune systems. Cells that resemble those in the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grow elsewhere in the body, such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, pelvic lining, bowel, bladder, appendix, and other organs.

These cells form lesions or ovarian cysts which in turn can cause inflammation and adhesions (scar tissue).

Insight Endometriosis is a charity that supports people in New Zealand to make their own decisions about the treatment and management of their endometriosis.

We offer FREE education appointments, which can be on Zoom, by phone, or in person at our Hamilton centre. 

We organize online and in-person endo meet-ups for people to be supported and feel connected through their endometriosis journey.

We host monthly webinars on Zoom that focus on a different topic each month. 

We have free evidence-based information available on our website and through our downloadable information guides.

Help ensure those with endometriosis are supported throughout their journey by supporting our mahi. 


Volunteer your time, knowledge, and expertise. Volunteers are the foundation of our organisation and are a huge benefit to the endometriosis community.

Fundraise or donate to our work. Help us to raise money that will enable us to provide free support, information, and resources to people with endometriosis.

You can make a big impact and difference to people with endometriosis, diagnosed or suspected.
