Endometriosis Foundation of America: ‚ÄčAn Online Patient Community
On Roe v. Wade & Reproductive Healthcare

The Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound) joins many organizations, including ACOG and ASRM, in denouncing the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Core to our mission has been addressing health inequities and helping women access safe and effective health care. Regardless of one’s personal views on abortion, it is an essential part of reproductive health care. History has shown that when access to safe medical procedures is restricted, it leads to harmful and potentially tragic outcomes. This resonates with those of us who have dedicated our lives to advocating for better endometriosis awareness and care, as so many people with this disease go misdiagnosed and mistreated for many years in large part because the disease often impacts their reproductive organs. Safe reproductive care is a woman’s right, her choice, and her choice alone. Stay tuned for a special conversation with medical experts and endometriosis specialists on how this decision can affect endometriosis care.

Managing Anxiety Pre-Surgery: Kelly Jones’ Endo Story
Endofound Article

It wasn’t until Kelly Jones shared her story in the Pharmacist Moms Group (PhMG) that she was finally on the path towards an answer to her pain. That was in 2021, and now she’s one month into recovery. “That evening after my surgery, I’d broke down in tears of joy to my husband because I not only finally had an official diagnosis, but also because I’d learned that my fertility was not impacted. I fully came to the realization that I wasn’t crazy or making this pain up, a feeling I’d been made to feel for the past few years.”
