The Ripple Effect of Overturning Roe Vs. Wade: What It Means for Treating Endometriosis

Save the date for this critical discussion on the consequences for women’s reproductive health if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

A Much-Needed Guide to Managing Endo in College

We’re thrilled to share a long-overdue guide written by endo patient and college senior Hannah George that details how she manages her endometriosis while in college. Drawing from her personal experience over the years, including registering with her school’s accessibility office as well as seeking out mental health support and navigating nutrition choices, this guide is here to support you or a loved one who may be struggling in an already stressful environment. While the semester just ended, we hope this guide will be of help to students who may have had a tough year or who may be worried about the year ahead.

Track Your Endo Symptoms with a Purple Leuchtturm1917 Notebook

Thanks to the generosity of Vonesa Aslani, we’re gifting a symptom-tracking Leuchtturm1917 notebook to the first 50 people who support EndoFound with a gift of $20 or more! Vonesa donated these notebooks to EndoFound because she, as well as her manager Lorri Vacca, who both have endometriosis, personally know how having a tool to track your endo symptoms can help you “better manage life with endo ranging from mental health to tracking physical symptoms.” They chose to donate to EndoFound “to support a quicker diagnosis time with accurate symptom tracking for patients to present to their doctors, further spread awareness of the mental health impact that the chronic illness can have on patients, and provide a healthy outlet of journaling.” Want a notebook while also supporting our mission? Simply make a donation on this page, and specify that you’re symptom tracking with us in the comment box.
